New year, new hair indeed!

If you’re thinking of switching up your ‘do, we have some trendy inspiration for you.

We took three of the most pinned hair colors on Pinterest and asked stylist Kyan Douglas and Cutler Salon to put them to the test on three of our viewers.

Let’s just say we’re obsessed with all three -- and when you see them, you probably will be, too.

ROSE GOLD

Rose gold everything is everywhere these days -- like in jewelry and makeup, for starters -- so it’s no surprise that it’s snuck its way into the hair world by now.

"This is a way to try a fantasy color that’s not too far out there," Kyan says. "It’s accessible [and] great for lots of different complexions."

So, here’s the inspiration behind the style that Kyan and Cutler tried on a viewer named Lindsey (which Kyan calls a "warm rose gold"):

SO pretty, right?!

Pro tip: Lindsey says the whole process took about a few hours, so if you’re after this ‘do, make sure to plan ahead.

HIGHLIGHTED CURLS

As Kyan pointed out, curly-haired women are usually hesitant to color their hair, as dye could potentially damage beautiful curls.

That’s why this trend -- which only goes on the tips of the hair, not all over -- is perfect for curly-haired beauties, like our viewer Crystal!

"It’s very, very low maintenance," Kyan insists.

Without further ado, behold the inspiration behind Crystal’s new ‘do:

So perfectly subtle!

Pro tip: If you know your own hair as well as Crystal knows hers, you can pick and choose the pieces that you want highlighted!

RUBY RED

If you’re hoping to make a bold statement for the holidays or make a drastic change for the new year, this one’s for you!

But fair warning -- it’s not as low maintenance as the others.

"With red, definitely go to a colorist," Kyan advises. "Sometimes it can be hard to nail the red just right."

Well, if you ask us, Kyan and Cutler got our viewer Valerie’s look Just. Right.

Check out their inspiration:


And look how well they pulled it off:

Now, if this one strikes your fancy, know that red is the quickest hair color to fade, according to Kyan.

But there IS a way to go about the coloring to make it last longer (Spoiler: It involves more bleach.)

Watch the video above to hear Kyan explain your two options.
