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 it’s the inspiration behind the latest hair color trend. That’s right—cinnamon hair color is a thing, 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 cinnamon hair, from how to get it to how to style your newly colored mane.
So, what exactly does a cinnamon hair color entail? Well, think about the spice in question and you likely have an idea of the hues involved. This brunette hair color is brought to life with milky brown, ginger, and red highlights weaved within a medium brown base. The result? A seriously gorgeous, dimensional, and—dare we say—spicy hair color! It’s also the perfect way for those with naturally brown hair to add a fun twist to their mane for fall.
Ready to get this trendy hair color 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. Use the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup 1-Day Color in BronzeAuburn and L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Gold to color individual strands 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!
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.
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. Then complete the system with the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Repair and Protect Balm.
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 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, silky hair.
One of the first giveaways of colored hair? Grown out roots! To avoid any harsh lines of demarcation that can take away from your beautiful hair color, make sure to book routine visits with your colorist to refresh your ‘do.
Wondering what hairstyle will best flatter your cinnamon hair color? We have a few options for you to try, below.
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.
It’s no secret that braids and highlights are a perfect match. Switch things up from a traditional braid by trying a 4-strand braid instead. The added strand will totally transform a once classic hairstyle. Learn how to weave one in our article, How to Do a 4-Strand Braid.
Last but not least, consider pulling half of your hair into a top knot. This will not show off your highlights, but also get your hair out of your face while still keeping your length. It’s a win-win!
