All Sections / 7 Hair Colors That Don't Require Constant Touch-Ups

Platinum blonde strands, though stunning, are notoriously difficult to maintain. And though we love cool color trends (like pumpkin spice or geode hair), we’re not sure we’re up for the bleaching and toning that comes with it. What we want is easy, yet still striking color that won't force us to make multiple trips to the salon. Here are the seven best hair colors to consider.

Ombré Ringlets

A dark-to-light contrast works especially well on curls, as their spiral shape blends the colors together more seamlessly.

Tortoiseshell Hair

This is a fun option for brunettes that’s not as severe as an ombré. Ask your stylist to keep your roots dark and weave in some honey brown and caramel highlights through your mid-lengths and ends only.

Babylights and Balayage

A mix of thinner and thicker highlights will give you a naturally sun-kissed look that will last for months.

“Lived-In Color”

A term coined by Insta-famous L.A. hair colorist Johnny Ramirez, this technique involves bleaching, depositing color and even creating a "fake root" so you end up with the sort of naturally sunkissed strands you had as a kid—with no awkward grow-out period.

Lightened Base

Tired of constantly having to touch up your roots? Brighten up your entire base so that any new grays blend in as they grow.

Tonal Color

Fact: The closer you stay to your natural hue (as in, don’t go more than two shades lighter), the longer you can last between appointments.

Face-Framing Highlights

Better yet, keep your natural base color and just add a few subtle highlights around your face to brighten things up and give your hair movement.
