A new season means weather changes, an updated wardrobe and, potentially, a fresh hair color. If you want to welcome the spring season into your look through upgrading your hair, then our collection of spring hair color trends for 2022 will quickly become a source of inspiration for you.

If you’re dreaming of going lighter, testing out a bold hue or simply giving your already fabulous hair some natural-looking highlights, spring is definitely the time to do it. While last year we saw the rise of greige and an embracing of gray, for 2022 we’re likely to see more adventurous tones, tints and shades as people head back to the hair salons.

If you’re longing to change your hair color this spring, but don’t have time for the hair parlor, don’t worry! The Good Housekeeping Institute Beauty Lab has you covered with a list of the best at-home hair color kits and the top tips for dyeing hair at home.
