It’s the hue that’s flooding the feeds and transforming ordinary locks into luscious strands of sweetness: brown sugar brunette. Picture-perfect on Pinterest, this color trend isn’t just a fad – it’s a flavorful sensation sweeping the style scene.
The journey into this exquisite hue gains momentum as the autumn breeze whispers through the air. Master colorist, stylist, and creator of Nickieology Salon Studio, Nickie Addison, notes the surge in requests for this warm, rich shade, especially as the colder months approach. “I get the most requests for this color closer to the holidays because of it adding such vibrance and luster to the hair,” she enthuses. Its versatility makes it a top choice for those yearning for subtle shifts or a deeper, more natural look.
So, what’s fueling this craze for brown sugar brunette? It’s not just a trend; it’s a reflection of our quest for natural beauty. People are steering away from complex hues and gravitating toward embracing their uniqueness. “It’s definitely become more popular in recent years and I think it has a lot to do with these natural beauty trends popping up on the internet,” reveals Nate Masterson, a hair care expert for Maple Holistics.
The magic of brown sugar brunette manifests in its adaptability across skin tones. Those with warm skin tones will rock this hair color! It perfectly blends with their skin’s warmth, also suiting those with olive or golden undertones. And guess what? If you’ve got hazel or green eyes, brace yourself! This shade will make your eyes pop, drawing everyone into your mesmerizing gaze.
But wait, it doesn’t stop there. Even cooler undertones can find their match with the right adjustments. Light-haired newcomers to the brunette world and inherent brunettes seeking an understated yet powerful transformation all find solace in this shade.
“It can be worn in various ways, from a sleek and sophisticated look to a beachy wave, giving you a unique and chic look,” explains Priyanka Swamy, CEO of Perfect Locks.
However, maintaining this luxurious tone demands diligence. Sarah Roberts, founder of A Beauty Edit, emphasizes the need to preserve this luxurious color. Color-safe products, regular salon gloss treatments, and UV protection safeguard the depth and vibrancy of brown sugar brunette.
The secret to keeping this hue fresh involves regular trims, touch-ups every 4-6 weeks to keep the color radiant, and anti-brass hair products between salon visits to keep unwanted tones at bay.
Remember, investing in color-safe products is your secret weapon for longevity. “When you rinse your hair try to use cold water, the heat from hot water will cause your hair to dry and accelerate how fast the color fades,” warns Nate Masterson. If your hair loves pool time, shield it from chlorine by wearing a swim cap, especially if you’re a regular swimmer. Also, if you’re using heat styling tools, it’s wise to apply a heat protectant.
As we gear up for the holiday season, why not succumb to the temptation? Dip your toes – and locks – into this delicious shade that’s poised to be the star of the season. Brown sugar brunette isn’t just a color; it’s an invitation to embrace a new, tantalizing you!
