When it comes to trying out a new hair color, there are some seriously gorgeous shades to consider. Tempting hair color trends like mulled wine and caramel latte may have already caught your eye, but we have another shade to suggest—also inspired by something totally tasty. The trending color we want to point you towards—that you can also expect to see all over your Insta feed? None other than chocolate cherry hair. This sweet shade is perfect for fall and we’re here to tell you everything there is to know about it.


Chocolate cherry hair is likely exactly what you’re imagining: a deep, cherry red base complemented by rich, chocolate hues blended throughout. This gorgeous color is full of subtle dimension and intense colors. Yes, please!


Chocolate cherry hair is totally customizable based on the number of highlights and lowlights you want throughout your mane and the specific shades of cherry red and chocolate brown you choose to incorporate. If you’re unsure of where to start, consider going to a professional so they can help you find the perfect chocolate cherry hair color for your coloring and also use their trained eye to seamlessly blend in the highlights and lowlights that make this look so pretty.

If you’re more of a DIY gal and want to get chocolate cherry hair at home, you totally can! Try the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Deep Burgundy Brown, L’Oréal Paris Féria in Rich Mahogany, or the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Dark Mahogany Brown. Whichever at-home hair color kit you choose, follow the included directions and color away!


Having newly colored locks calls for an updated hair care routine. Swap your usual shampoo, conditioner, and hair treatment for a line that’s safe for color-treated hair. Try the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair and Defend Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair Remedy Balm.

Editor’s tip: To give your mane a little extra TLC, use a hair mask! The L’Oréal Paris EverPure Intense Repair Hair Sheet Mask and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Deep Moisture Hair Sheet Mask are both safe for color-treated hair.
