How to Get a Cinnamon Hair Color How to Get a Cinnamon Hair Color How to Get a Cinnamon Hair Color

Sure, pumpkin spice is great, but you can’t forget about the OG spice: cinnamon! Whether sprinkled on top of a bowl of oatmeal, in a slice of apple pie, or in your morning coffee, we’d consider this fan-favorite a classic when it comes to spices. Which is why it comes as no surprise that cinnamon hair color is the latest hair color trend. That’s right—cinnamon hair is happening, and it’s safe to say you’re about to be obsessed. Looking to switch up your beauty look? Read on to learn everything you need to know about getting a cinnamon brown hair color.

WHAT IS CINNAMON HAIR?

So, what exactly does cinnamon brown hair entail? Well, think about the spice in question, and you will likely have an idea of the hues involved. This brunette hair color is brought to life with milky brown, ginger, and red highlights weaved throughout a medium brown base. The result? A seriously gorgeous, dimensional, and—dare we say it—spicy hair color! It’s also the perfect way for those with naturally brown hair to add a fun twist to their mane.

HOW TO GET CINNAMON HAIR COLOR

Ready to try this cinnamon hair for yourself? Since this hue calls for an array of expertly placed highlights to create a seamless, well-blended color, your best bet is to book an appointment at your favorite salon and leave the color to a professional. That being said, if you want to give the color a go at home, we recommend using temporary hair color to do so.

For DIY cinnamon brown hair, use the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color in BronzeAuburn and L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray in Gold to color small sections throughout your brunette base. When you’re ready to part with the color, simply shampoo your hair to wash away any residue—then try again!

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF CINNAMON HAIR

If you’ve decided to commit to a cinnamon hair color, you’ll want to upgrade your hair care routine to ensure your strands look their best. Take note of the following to do just that.

TIP #1: USE A COLOR-SAFE SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER

The most important thing to change when you get a new hair color? Your shampoo and conditioner! Rather than your usual shower favorites, you’ll want to switch to a system that’s formulated for color-treated hair. Give the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Conditioner a try, and complete the system with the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Repair and Protect Balm.

TIP #2: DEEP CONDITION YOUR STRANDS

Colored hair needs a little extra love, in case you didn’t know. That’s why, a few times a week, it’s a good idea to swap out your conditioner for a deep conditioner.  The L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Rapid Reviver Deep Conditioner coordinates with the above system to help hydrate each strand for shinier, silkier hair.

TIP #3: SCHEDULE REGULAR TOUCH UPS

One of the first giveaways of colored hair? Grown out roots! Make sure to book routine visits with your colorist to refresh your ‘do, and avoid any harsh demarcation lines that can take away from your beautiful hair color.

HOW TO STYLE YOUR NEW CINNAMON HAIR COLOR

Wondering what hairstyle will best flatter your cinnamon brown hair color? We have a few options for you to try below.

HAIRSTYLE #1: VOLUMINOUS CURLS

Big, voluminous curls are one of the best ways to showcase a dimensional hair color. Grab your curling iron and head over to our article, How to Create Voluminous Curls on Any Hair Type, for a step-by-step tutorial.

HAIRSTYLE #2: 4-STRAND BRAID

It’s no secret that braids and highlights are a perfect match. Switch things up from a traditional braid and try a four-strand braid instead. The added strand will totally transform the classic hairstyle. Learn how to weave one from this tutorial: How to Do a 4-Strand Braid.

HAIRSTYLE #3: HALF-UP TOP KNOT

Last but not least, consider pulling half of your hair into a top knot. This will not only show off your highlights but also get your hair out of your face while still showing off your length. It’s a win-win!
