My Favorite Things – New Yorkers With Colorful Hair

Maybe it’s a 2012 Spring trend (take a look at the 2012 Pantone Color Trend forecast here), or just the spirit of Easter, but I’ve been seeing a lot of colorful tresses around New York City recently!

This Cabernet hue caught my eye (for an especially rich look, make sure you pair with orange or yellow)…

As did this Cockatoo shade in Midtown.

In the Bronx, Tangerine Tango was “de rigueur”…

But Solar Power also seemed popular – perhaps this was the start of a hair color intervention convention?

Meanwhile, this young girl aptly illustrated the power of primary colors (photo courtesy of my friend Tom)…

(While these Lavender tresses were a “spring must-have” against the yellow of the Forsythia!)

Finally, in Times Square, I spied a shocking shock of Kelly Green.

With so many shades to choose from, what will be your hue?
