With a new year comes exciting new trends and the fading of previous trends that have run their course. Expert colorists shared some trends they’d rather not see make their way into 2023, and the overall theme was consistent. Creative director of nuBest Salon & Spa, Jamie Mazzei, says this year we’re moving away from full-time hair commitments and shifting towards colors that are easier to maintain both in salon and at home.

Clients are seeking more natural-looking colors that are “a true extension of who they are, and honestly, they don’t have the time to sit at the salon for hours every six weeks for touch-ups,” says Massei. These are the hair color trends you can count on seeing less of in 2023.
