The sun is out, which means it's time to say goodbye winter blues and hello to summer. If you're looking for a bit of change to add to your summer wardrobe, why not dye your hair and try these summer 2018 trends.

Peanut Butter & Jelly (Sandwich?)
Peanut Butter & Jelly (Sandwich?)

That's right, you can wear your favorite childhood snack as a new hair color thanks to colorist Megan Schipani. She was inspired by this color when a client asked her to do a hair color that was "natural" with "something fun."

Sure, this all sounds strange, having a literal snack as a new hair color, but when you look at the results no one can deny how beautiful it looks. We might even be talking to our stylists to see if they can pull off this unique trend.

When You Get To The Roots Of This Hairstyle, You'll See Double Rainbows
When You Get To The Roots Of This Hairstyle, You'll See Double Rainbows

Start being colorful at the source of it all: the roots. The rainbow roots trend is obviously colorful, so you'll definitely make a statement. However, the coolest part about this color is how hidden it is and how you can show off your colors with a simple part.

You can style it where the hidden rainbow shines beneath a super vibrant color, or keep it real simple by just touching up the roots to your natural hair color. Either way, you can show off your colorful personality with this crazy hairstyle.

Succulent (That's Right, Like The Plant)
Succulent (That's Right, Like The Plant)

Succulents are another "millennial" staple that seemed to come out of nowhere, but it's kinda cute having a little plant to take care of. Most of us want our succulents on our desk, shelf, nightstand, or even in a large garden, but for the first time somebody thought of the perfect place for this plant. Hair.

This new hair trend might be easier to take care of than the actual houseplant (or maybe not). Either way, the results are absolutely beautiful and show-off your love for all things nature. This might also help for those of us you don't necessarily have a green thumb.

Millennial Pink (Tried, But True)

Millennial, millennial, millennial. It seems like everything is so "millennial" these days. But seriously, this is one millennial trend you have to try.

Millennial Pink might seem so 2017, but the truth is, there's still a lot of people rocking this vibrant yet subtle color. Standing out in the crowd while offering a bit of feminine charge never looked so cute with this hair color trend.

Copper, In Case You're Not Feeling Silver Or Gold
Copper, In Case You're Not Feeling Silver Or Gold

For some of us, we like our hair's natural tone, but we just want to play it up a little. This color is perfect if you're not someone who wants to try crazy, bright colors like rose gold, blues, or purples.

You can give yourself that sun-kissed glow by dressing up your hair's natural color with a bit of copper, just like Lucy Hale. Who wouldn't want to look like this talented actress?

Don't Just Go Blonde, Go PLATINUM Blonde
Don't Just Go Blonde, Go PLATINUM Blonde

Get out your platinum card and swag with this gorgeous color. Whether you're a brunette wanting to completely change your look or a blonde who wants to try an even lighter shade you'll want to try out this color.

Something about this color even has us feeling like we could keep up with the Kardashians and Beverly Hills queens with this 'do.

Denim Jeans? More Like Denim Hair

Another style you can wear in more than one way is the sultry, dark denim hair. You can match your favorite pair of American Eagle jeans or overalls with this dark, dark blue.

Sure it travels away from the usual light colors of summer, but no one can argue that this trend is definitely going to turn heads. Whether you want to go full coverage or for a more ombré look, this color is the perfect way to travel a bit outside the norms of hairstyles.

Rose Gold, A New Classic

All that glitters is gold with this trend, which definitely made its mark in 2016. For the past few years, rose gold seems to be everywhere and it doesn't seem to be dying out anytime soon. Rose gold doesn't have to stick with just your phone or kitchen decor.

Now rose gold is taking over our hair with stunning results. There are also multiple ways to wear this trend, so you'll never run out of options for this beautiful color.

You'll Need Some Cheese With This Vino Hair Color

Maybe you're just not buying into the pastels and pinks of the summer. You'd rather stay dark this summer, or even more importantly, you're someone with dark, dark brown hair who dreads the thought of bleaching your poor hair to get those "rose gold" look.

Well, fear not, this deep vino color will inspire you to take all those trips to the vineyard and taste all the Merlot and Moscato to your heart's content.

Ombré On

Ombré is a perfect option if you're scared to go full coverage with your locks and just want something that'll blend into your natural color. Making your tips into something light or bold adds a little something to your average 'do, but gives you the option to grow out of a color you might not like much faster.

There's also something super boss about pulling off this ombré look with bright colors like pink, purple, red, and blue. Make a statement this summer with this trend and maybe you'll catch the eye of your next summer fling.

Highlight Your Face With This Style
Highlight Your Face With This Style

Treat your face with this simple, yet cute hairstyle. You don't need all that highlighter to show off your cheekbones (Sorry, Rihanna, we still love you). A simple change of hair color can add some light to your face and would be a much quicker job than doing more intense dye jobs.

The best way to use this hair color is with beautiful beachy waves that'll be perfect for when you hit the sand. So grab your sunscreen, swimsuit, and favorite sunhat and hang out at the beach with your new hairstyle.

Pizza Hair?
Pizza Hair?

This one is more than just a little strange... We'll admit that maybe you won't want to have pizza in your hair, but if you're looking to stand out this is definitely the way to do it.

The girl who posted this pizza hair picture even gained a lot of media attention when she posted this picture. So if you've tried it all --- ombré, rose gold, bright pink, and dark blue --- and you're up for the challenge, pizza hair is it.

Strawberry Blonde For The Beach
Strawberry Blonde For The Beach

There might be some truth to that whole "blondes have more fun" trend. Maybe that's why this strawberry-version is coming to shelves and on every hair stylists' radars. Bring out your inner beach babe with this hair color that's made to soak up the sun's rays. This is a trend that's perfect if you want to lighten things up without causing too much damage to your hair.
