Named after the coffee itself, this popular colour has the goal of cooler, mocha tones with a darker base. Also known as coffee bean hair, it’s ravishing whether diluted with highlights or washed into a lighter softer tone towards the ends.
2. Strawberry Blonde
Right now, the fashion world is particularly partial about wearing blonde hair with light red accents—its lightness and intriguing shimmer caused by reflecting light offering a spark of fiery red for excitement that may just pass as natural.
3. Ink Black
Not just your regular run-of-the-mill jet black, this rich, inky-black is shinier, glossier and much darker. This striking shade needs extra TLC so stock up on daily colour protection haircare such as Kérastase Reflection Masque Chromatique, a rich treatment that preserves colour radiance and brings shine and softness.
4. Caramel Lights
Striking and delectable, caramel highlights can be used to create an absolute hair masterpiece. Regardless of your complexion, hair type or natural hair colour, a warm caramel hue can brighten and bring out any cut and texture of hair in the most beautiful way.
Ash brown hair is a light and refreshing trend in hair colouring right now. A great option for when you have to grow out your hair or you just want to add a little movement into your current hair colour, update your classic brown look with this moody and cool colouring technique.
