Rose Quartz and Serenity – pastel blue and pink, these beautiful colors named the colors of the year 2016 will definitely not be missing in haircolors and hairstyles, too. 

As every year, Pantone Inc., the authority on color has announced the color of the year. This year, there have historically been even two colors of the year 2016 – color of rose quartz, pastel pink Rose Quartz and pastel blue that represents peace and calmness called Serenity. These colors of the year 2016 – Rose Quartz and Serenity – will certainly get into the hairstyles, too. And what is great, there will probably not be only light blue and pink haircolors. Those who perceive colors know that when pink and blue are mixed together in various ratio, the result is a wide range of other purplish shades. So there will be great variety of fashion shades, from pink to shades of pastel purple to clear pastel blue. And purple haircolor will definitely not lag behing blue and pink! So what awaits us in the year 2016? Pink hair in the Rose Quartz shade, blue hair in the Serenity shade and purple hair as a combination of these two.

Rose Quartz and Serenity – colors of the year 2016 that the entire world immediately fell in love with

While the last year´s color Marsala was not very popular at the beginning especially among the laymen, since a red and brown shade is mainly for design experts, the colors of the year 2016 Rose Quartz and Serenity have not been criticized. I kept on trying to recall what are these colors mixed into one reminding me of. Then I looked at the morning sky and they were there – wonderful colors of sunrise but many times also afterglow. It is precisely the combination of pink and blue nicely blended together what inspires optimism while looking at morning or evening sky. And they will be wonderful as Rose Quartz and Serenity fashion, too.

Both these colors – Rose Quartz and Serenity will also suit the hair. Whether it will be blue hair or pink hair. Or even their mixed purple shades. So far it is not very easy to find suggestions for Rose Quartz and Serenity colors used in the hairstyles. It is obvious that they are still waiting for their boom. I came up with some suggestions. There are not too few of them.

Colors of the year 2016 Rose Quartz and Serenity will offer great variability for hair. It can be only light toning, as we can see in the pink Rose Quartz braided hairstyle. Purple haircolor created by mixing of pink and blue color called Serenity will be beautiful, too.(Hairstyles are from Emma J Steven collection, hair: Emma J Steven & Troy Boyd, photo: Jenny Hare, make-up: Melissa Spaulding, styling: Emma J Steven & Troy Boyd.)

Pink hair is changing – Rose Quartz shade is coming

It may have seemed for a while that pink color would begin to retreat but everything is different now. Pink will be again a color that will change especially the blondes. But while last year pink hair was inspired by the color of pink gold with hints of yellowish reflections, this year yellowish shade will vanish and the inspiration will consist in the colors of semi-precious stone rose quartz.

Rose Quartz or rose quartz

A beautiful stone rose quartz is considered to be a stone of love. It is said that it opens and purifies heart and it helps us to like ourselves. It can supposedly heal a broken heart, get over various traumas and personal crises. It attracts love, new relationships, it is the stone of sensitivity and empathy and it can bring harmony back to life. Instead of the jewel, try the haircolor inspired by rose quartz – Rose Quartz haircolor. 

Blue hair as a symbol of serenity

So far, blue hair have been more likely a symbol of rebellion and desire to be different. As really light pastel in the color of the year Serenity, but also as the shade for fashion haircolor of the year 2016 what is grey, blue haircolor will be probably used more than up to now. This will also be a case of those who have not been very interested in the blue rebellion so far.

Purple hair or when pink Rose Quartz and blue Serenity are mixed together

Like I said, if you choose pastel purple you will not miss the trend. Because it is the result of mixing two pastel colors pink and blue –  Rose Quartz and Serenity together. And this is exactly how purple color will appear in the haircolors of the year 2016 – along with pink Rose quartz and blue Serenity – as the third color exppressing individual “point of view” on both of them. The statement saying “nothing is only black and white” could be in this case transformed into “nothing is only pink and blue.” Sometimes it is also purple. Purple hair look gorgeous.
