When I'm craving a change, the first thing I change is my hair. it's the simplest way for a new look, without changing your makeup or clothes. If you're thinking of a hair color change, you've come to the right place. Here, we'll tell you this year's hottest hair color trends, plus Tips & Tricks to help you find the shade perfectly tailored to you.

1. Bright hues including streaks, washes of pastels, dip-dye and more. Bright hues have proved to be a huge hair color trend in 2011 and 2012. Brazen celebrities including Kate Bosworth, Avril Lavigne, Carrie Underwood, Pink and Rihanna have hit the red carpet in streaks, bright dyes, washes of pastels and dip-dye looks. It's a fun, and daring look to spice up your look.

A great hair treatment that will protect your vibrant streaks, or dip-dye looks is the Vibracolor Fade Prevent Treatment, by Brocato. Brocato's "Intelligent" treatment extends the life and brilliance of your hair color. Their Extensively researched regimen balance moisture and strength to proved total hair harminy. This treatment should be used by those in need of additional hydration and deep moisture.

2. Ombré hair color has been popping up on red carpets for more than a year and is a great color    option for brunettes. Ombré is a French word that literally means "shaded like a gradient." Roots remain dark while the rest of the hair becomes lighter mid-shaft using a balayage technique. This trend is also referred to as "surfer strands."

Another well known product, that helps maintain hair color is the Color Ensure Leave In Treatment, by Pravana. Specifically formulated to actually maintain the vibrancy of color-treated hair for a longer period of time. pravana's exclusive Naturceutical Complex helps to strengthen and provide shine. Special UV filters protect hair against color-robbing ultraviolet rays.
3. Bronde is that perfect shade between blonde and brunette that was first made popular back in 2007 by supermodel Gisele Bundchen and remains popular into 2012. So how to get it? According to Hair Stylists, the key to the perfect shade of bronde is to lighten hair by painting select layers on top of the hair with 2 different volumes of color lifting creams. Don't get it? Show that sentence and your favorite pictures to your colorist. Such coloring gives darker hair depth and dimension without looking like you're trying to be the blonde you're not.

Rock that Bronde Hairstyle with the Color Brite Shampoo, by Thermafuze. Your blonde, highlighted, white or gray hair deserves extra-special treatment. This unique shampoo's violet base removes yellow brassiness without staining. Ooh-la-la! Be true to your color.

4. Balayage is taking the country's salons by storm and works on all hair colors, but is especially great on blondes with a beautiful base. To get the perfect highlights, you basically have two options: traditional foil highlights and the newer, edgier "balayage."  It's referred to as hair painting. Actually, it's called "sweeping" because hair stylists use a sweeping motion when they apply the color with a color applicator. So rather than taking a section of hair in a square foil (keeping in mind that the head is round) they carefully take pieces of hair from the head. It can be a few strands, or "chunky." With great control, they gently apply a lightener on from roots to ends.

To keep your blonde golden! use the Anti-Aging Blonde Conditioner, by Alterna. A conditioner that nourishes, enhances and perfects blonde tones, leaving hair witj a highly reflective shine. Optical Brighteners bring out Blonde Highlights and delivers a healthy looking glow. Alterna Caviar Blonde Conditioner is infused with the Seasilk, Age-Control Complex and Color Hold to protect color and fight the aging process with focused precision.

5. Platinum Blonde remains popular going into 2012. Keeping hair this blonde is high maintenance, however, and won't suit all skin tones. So you're thinking of going platinum (your hair, not your album). Before you attempt to bleach your hair, make sure you will actually look good with platinum hair. Were you blonde as a kid? As we age, our hair tends to turn darker, but women who were blonde as children tend to make good blondes. If you have naturally dark hair, keep in mind that platinum hair will be high maintenance for you. Your roots will grow in dark, which could look tacky next to your blonde hair, so make sure your committed to the hair color before you make the plunge.
