12 Ways to Change Up Your Hair Using Pantone Colors of the Year

Marsala is so last year. Ever since Pantone officially announced their pick for color(s!) of the year, dethroning last year’s maroon-y shade, we’ve been obsessed with the new top dogs: Rose Quartz and Serenity. The two pastel pigments, one a dreamy pink and the other a light sky blue, are sophisticated yet fun and ultra wearable, especially come springtime. But one of our favorite ways to rock the hues? Two words: pastel hair. If you’re looking to make a change to your mane this coming year, scroll on for 12 ways to style it using Pantone’s colors of the year for 2016.
