Pantone Colour of the Year: Peach Fuzz

Exciting news… Pantone has released their colour of the year: Peach Fuzz. A velvety gentle peach whose all-embracing spirit enriches mind, body and heart. We love!  

Pantone describes the new shade as being warm and cosy, highlighting our desire for togetherness with others and the feelings this creates. It represents a fresh approach to a new softness. The heartful peach hue brings a feeling of tenderness and communicates a message of caring and sharing, community and collaboration. 

Pantone Colour of the year 2024


Marlon Hawkins, a friend of Colour World and artistic director, Brooks & Brooks, London says it is the perfect warm tone for colourists.  

“The new Pantone Colour of the Year, Peach Fuzz, is a playful, delicate tone that is so beautiful. I am obsessed with warmer tones, colours and palettes and Peach Fuzz encompasses everything I love about warmer tones… 

“It’s soft, warm, pink, peach, violet, golden – bright yet saturated I love it! Peach Fuzz is a great colour for colourists because warmer colours are always softer and more forgiving when doing transformations or transitions. They hold a lot more shine and richness, giving the hair an expense sheen…” 

A lovely insight to working with warmer colours… 

“When using it on clients, I personally find warmer colours the bridge between commercial and creativity. Clients aren’t afraid of colour anymore and by asking the right questions in the right order you can bring out someone’s colour palette and range in the consultation. Peach Fuzz will naturally have a complementing palette that colourists around the world will now be exploring with products such as L’Oreal Professionnel Dia Light Boosters. Let’s get swatching and switch up our mixology!” 

We look forward to seeing Peach Fuzz blossom over the next year, and we would love to see your versions of the 2024 Colour of the Year. Please share with us on @colourworlduk
