This Subtle New Hair Color Trend Is About To Take Over Your Instagram


When it comes to hair trends, blondes really do tend to have more fun. Those people who were born with naturally lighter locks have a blank canvas for playing with temporary color and keeping up with the latest hair trends, while brunettes often find themselves torn between trying trends and keeping their hair healthy (hello, bleach damage).

Good news, brunettes: Fall’s most gorgeous hair trend was made just for you. It’s called “root beer hair” (although you might hear it referred to by other yummy names, such as “cinnamon chocolate hair,” as Glamour points out).

Here are the basics you need to know about root beer hair: It’s rich and gorgeous and will make your hair look luxurious whether it’s down and curled or thrown up into a messy top knot.

The process is pretty simple: Lustrous auburn highlights over chocolatey brown hair (we highly recommend a balayage technique for the highlights — it will make them look natural and flowing, and they’ll grow out seamlessly if you don’t have the time or money for constant upkeep).
