It can be a little tricky staying on top of all the latest beauty trends — but that's why you've got us. To find out what hair trends are having a major moment, we hit up a handful of celebrity stylists who were happy to share their favorite red carpet looks. From hair colors in powdery pink and platinum blonde to glassy blunt bobs and flattering fringe, here's what's au courant.

Powdery, Faded Pastels
We've seen pastel hair color in the past, but right now those hues are leaning powdery and faded. Think Lady Gaga's Cinderella blue hair at the Golden Globes or Khloe Kardashian's blossom pink.

"It's a soft, romantic take on the pastel trend that is fun for spring," says Stephanie Brown, a celebrity hairstylist for IGK Salons. "Just make sure your stylist is an expert in platinum hair before you go in to try to get this done."

Since these hues are so pale, Brown says they can be a bit tricky to maintain at home. Your best bet is to employ special shampoos and conditioners to help prolong the color.

"I like Bleach London and Overtone, and Muvo makes a pretty pink," says Brown. "To make sure that the color comes out pale, mix these shampoos with a plain shampoo or conditioner so they don't come out too vibrant."

The Blunt Bob
If you feel like you're having blunt bob déjà vu, it's just that everyone is rocking this look right now. Irina Shayk showed up to the Academy Awards in a glassy, blunt bob that had heads turning, and we've seen Charlize Theron, Jessica Chastain and Dua Lipa sport their own version.

"This style is a classic look that is easy to style and can always have edge added to it. In addition, if you have thin hair, this style makes it look thicker," says Charlie Gouveia Jr., an advanced stylist at Salon Eva Michelle. "At home, get hair 90 percent dried then go back in and bevel the ends with a brush for your preferred style (straight or wavy). For waves, be sure to run a curling iron through the crown of the head."

Platinum Blonde
It doesn't matter what your current hair color is — even if you're already blonde — going platinum makes a serious statement. We've recently seen Zac Efron dare to go there (the contrast with his dark beard is amazing) and Hilary Duff did the same just after giving birth.

"Everyone dreams about going platinum blonde, but Hilary went for it," says Kim Navarro, celebrity stylist for Nine Zero One Salon. "What better time to have the most sexy hair change than right after having a baby? So Empowering."

To prevent platinum hair from going brassy, wash with a purple toning shampoo, such as Amika's Bust Your Brass Cool Blonde Shampoo, about once a week.

Sandy Locks
If platinum is too much of a commitment, perhaps the low-key, low-maintenance sand-colored hair trend is more your cup. "For darker blondes, this color has a few bright pieces around your face and throughout your hair paired with a slightly darker neutral base," says Brown, who notes that we've recently seen the look on Blake Lively and Gigi Hadid. "A sandy beige brunette is similar to the sandy beige blonde, but a little darker with the ends being one to two shades lighter." Celeb examples include Gemma Chan and Jessica Biel.

Whether lighter or darker, a sandy hue is the perfect neutral for cooler undertones, notes Brown. "For those with warmer undertones, you can always make those highlights slightly warmer without affecting the overall look," she says. Your stylist should be able to help you figure out the most complementary look.
