A softer and more relaxed version of the vibrant colors taking over our Instagram feeds, peach hair fits the bill perfectly for those looking to experiment with a subtle fashion color. Though peach hair is having a major moment in the spotlight, the trend is nothing new. In fact, we first saw it making its rounds in 2013, but of course, as color progresses and colorists gain experience, the sorbet-like color has only gotten better with time. 

Sarai Speer (@saraihairwizard), a Kansas City hair artist, gave her client the perfect dose of peach goodness. Here's how you can recreate the look:
