Top hair colour trends for Spring 2023

Megan Fox Soft Reds

We at macleodbradley have put together our top hair colour trends and fresh new hair colours to try this Spring 2023.  It is our job to ‘make you feel good about yourselves….’ 

The days are getting longer, the evenings are lighter and the temperature is heating up. Spring has officially sprung, which means it’s time to start thinking about switching up your look.  

The boldest way?  A fresh new hair colour!  

What better way to announce a new season than trading your usual hue for a soft red? Or ditching the dip dye for some chunky Y2K highlights? Here, we ask the experts for their favourite new hair colours to try this spring.

Blonde is back, just in time for spring. We are loving bright blondes but still keeping it natural with warmer tones and a soft root. See Cara Delevingne and Emma Roberts.  For this blonde colour, you need to have a lighter natural base for the grow out to be soft and low maintenance. Ask your stylist for bright blonde pops around the face and ends, keeping it a little more natural at the root.

Ashlee Simpson Copper


Ashlee Simpson is your go-to copper muse.

Copper reds are also hot this spring. Copper is such a fun way to spice things up and really bring out blue and green eyes. This can be seen on Ashlee Simpson. For copper hair, you have to have either virgin hair that can be lifted with colour, or bleached hair that can be toned.

Jenna Ortega Brown Balayage

Brown Balayage

This spring, you can expect to see brown balayage having a major moment.  

During the warmer months, people tend to ditch dark and moody hair tones and lean into lighter, blonder ones.

The brown balayage is great for those with darker hair tones who do not want a drastic change, as it allows you to lighten your locks in a subtle way with little to no upkeep.

Anya Taylor-Joy Pale Blonde

Pale Blonde

Pale blonde is a great choice for those who are already naturally blonde or are working with lighter hair, as it just requires some extra blonde highlights.  

We always suggest consulting with your stylist to figure out which colour is best for you and how long it will take to achieve that colour.  Darker hair transitioning to lighter tones may take two to three sessions depending on how light you want to go.

We would advise anyone undergoing a colour switch that you moisturise your strands completely in between salon visits with a rich rehydrating mask, as dying your hair (no matter the shade) will dry out your locks.

The O&M Seven Day Miracle is a great product to use once a week with colour-treated hair. The treatment visibly nourishes dry and damaged hair to appear stronger and healthier and will leave hair deeply moved with its blend of luxurious oils.

Megan Fox Soft Reds

Soft Reds

Megan Fox debuts some spicy copper hues.

Soft red hues are a hair colour trend that we will be seeing more of this spring. Think strawberry blonde and light auburn hues, like ’80s American singer Tiffany.

Annika von Holdt Grey Hair

Going Grey

Going grey is something to flaunt—not cover up. We at macleodbradley, think natural grey has become a trend, definitely since COVID, women are embracing their natural color.

There are different amounts of grey: Paulina Porizkova, Andie MacDowell, Jamie Lee Curtis and Jane Fonda.  To make the trend work for you, choose as much or as little natural grey to show off as you’d like, from a whole head to a stunning silver streak.
