Calling all hair color addicts: we’ve spotted the latest hair color trend to hit the beauty scene. What is it, you ask? Say hello to toasted coconut hair! This trendy hair color has been gracing social media platforms like Instagram and Pinterest and we can’t say we’re surprised—the color is seriously picture-worthy. Learn all about this hair color idea, including, how to get it and how to switch up your hair care routine for color-treated hair.
WHAT IS TOASTED COCONUT HAIR
If you love bronde hair, you’ll love this toasted coconut hair color. Toasted coconut hair is similar to bronde hair in that it mixes brown and blonde tones but the hair color itself involves a gradient of the colors rather than a blend. Think dark roots that gradually fade into bright, blonde ends. As its name suggests, the look essentially creates a “toasted” blonde hair color.
HOW TO GET TOASTED COCONUT HAIR
This trendy hair color is one that’s best left to the pros. The color requires creating a darker root and then using a color melting technique to add depth and dimension. The roots will be varying shades of brown that transition into a cool-toned blonde for a look that’s gorgeously contrasted. Slightly too complicated for us non-experts!
HOW TO TAKE CARE OF TOASTED COCONUT HAIR
While this hair color is super low-maintenance, you'll need to swap your go-to hair care products for ones that are safe for color-treated hair. The L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair and Defend Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair Remedy Balm are all prime picks. Used together, the line deeply conditions and cares for fragile hair, helping your color stay pure.
Since this hair color involves having a very cool-toned blonde, you can also opt to use a hair care line that will keep your blonde locks looking their best and least brassy. The L’Oréal Paris EverPure Blonde Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris EverPure Blonde Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Blonde Shade Reviving Treatment are formulated to balance blonde hair and neutralize brassiness while being especially gentle on color.

Want to show off your toasted coconut mane? Of course you do! If you need some hairstyle inspiration to highlight (pun intended) your new color, we’ve got you covered. Read on for a few of our favorite ways to style toasted coconut hair.
Hairstyle idea #1: Loose, voluminous curls
Style your hair with full, loose curls to showcase the stunning gradient effect of this hair color. This hairstyle will draw attention to the blend of colors throughout your mane.
Step 1: Apply heat protectant
Apply a heat protectant, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream, to your locks. Work the lightweight cream through your mane before blow-drying to smooth and protect your hair.
Step 2: Curl your hair
Use a wide barrel curling iron to create big, loose curls throughout your hair. Gently brush through your hair with a wide-tooth comb to loosen your curls and create a carefree look.
Step 3: Spritz on hairspray
Seal in your curls with some hairspray, like the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold with UV filter for Color-Treated Hair. This hairspray is specifically formulated for color-treated hair and provides a soft, silky finish.

Step 1: Apply a wave spray
Spritz the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray throughout towel-dried hair. Braid your hair into a traditional three-strand braid and allow it to air dry.
Step 2: Add a texture mist
Once your hair is dry, take out your braid to reveal effortless, beachy waves. As a finishing touch, apply the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Air-Blown Texture Mist throughout your hair to add texture and volume for a full-bodied look.
