It is not the first time where two colors are announced, the last time being in 2016. The Illuminating and Ultimate Gray combination is said to “encapsulate deeper feelings of thoughtfulness with the promise of something sunny and friendly”.

According to the Institute, “PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating is a bright and cheerful yellow sparkling with vivacity, a warming yellow shade imbued with solar power.”

“PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray quietly assures, encouraging feelings of composure, steadiness and resilience.”

With the announcement of The Color(s) of The Year, those who dye their hair regularly may have just gained a new hair color inspiration. For hair brand Goldwell, a shade of yellow has also been named one of their color trends of 2021.
