Indulging in a sweet treat for a delicious pick-me-up is always a win. If you love the idea of sharing your love of tasty snacks with your beauty look, you may find chocolate cherry hair color to be a solid choice. This hair color trend gives your mane instant warmth with stunning dimension. Not to mention, it’s a cool way to hop on the food-inspired hair color bandwagon. If you’re up to transform your hair color with an eye-catching hue, we’re here to show you the way. Ahead, we’re giving you the full scoop on how to score chocolate red hair like a pro.

WHAT IS CHOCOLATE CHERRY HAIR?

Chocolate cherry hair color is just what the name suggests: a deep, cherry red base complemented by rich chocolate hues blended throughout your mane. This gorgeous color provides your mane with subtle dimension and intense hues. We also appreciate that you can customize this shade to complement your skin tone. You can choose from a vibrant finish or muted tone—it’s all up to you.

HOW DO YOU GET CHOCOLATE CHERRY HAIR?

If you’re game to explore the wonders of chocolate cherry hair, there are two options to try. One of the easiest ways to get the ball rolling is to enlist the help of a professional. You both can decide on the number of highlights and lowlights to use throughout your mane and specific shades of cherry red and chocolate brown. A colorist also has the skills and expertise to seamlessly blend in the highlights and lowlights to create a super-flattering look.

You can also bring chocolate red hair to life with a DIY hair coloring session. All you need is the right at-home coloring kit to transform your mane. Try the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Deep Burgundy Brown, L’Oréal Paris Féria in Rich Mahogany, or the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Fade-Defying Shine Permanent Hair Color in Dark Mahogany Brown. Whichever at-home hair color kit you choose, follow the included directions to transform your mane.

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF CHOCOLATE CHERRY HAIR

Once you’ve achieved the chocolate red hair color of your dreams, you’ll want it to stick around for the long haul. Consider our three hair-care tips below to help your newly color-treated hair look and feel its best.

#1. OPT FOR A COLOR-TREATED HAIR SYSTEM

It’s time to bid your go-to shampoo and conditioner farewell. You’ll need to upgrade your shower essentials with a system that’s formulated for color-treated hair. Try the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair and Defend Conditioner. This sulfate-free duo will strengthen and protect your strands from environmental damage and daily color aggression.

#2. ADD A HAIR MASK INTO THE MIX

Step into the world of pampering by adding a nourishing hair mask into your weekly regimen. The L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair Remedy Balm goes the extra mile to restore strength and brilliance to your mane, strand by strand. Once or twice a week, swap out your conditioner for this offering to score some extra TLC.

#3. PASS ON THE HEAT-STYLING

Allow your color-treated strands to go the distance by minimizing heat-styling, since excessive heat usage can cause damage to your locks and lead to color fading. Instead, style your strands with heat-free essentials to highlight your natural texture. Grab a hair mousse, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse, and apply an egg-sized dollop to your towel-dried strands. Scrunch and let air dry. Once complete, you’ll have soft and bouncy curls to play with.

If you can’t seem to part with your hot tools, you’ll need to use a heat protectant to shield your strands. Spritz on the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray before applying heat. This essential provides up to 450-degree heat protection, conditions, and seals in shine.

HOW DO YOU STYLE CHOCOLATE CHERRY HAIR?

The idea of giving your mane a break from your hot tools to style your locks is a smart move. As we mentioned, excessive heat can take a toll on your hair color, so you’ll want to opt for heat-free styles. Here are three of our favorite styles to choose from.

HEAT-FREE HAIRSTYLE #1: A FISHTAIL BRAID

STEP #1: PART YOUR STRANDS

Divide your mane into two equally-sized sections and clip one side out of the way.

STEP #3: GET BEAUTY SLEEP

Cover your hair with a silk scarf. Let your buns sit in place and air dry overnight as you get some shut-eye.

STEP #4: REVEAL YOUR WAVES

In the a.m., unravel your buns and finger comb your strands for effortless, beachy waves.

HEAT FREE HAIRSTYLE #3: MESSY BED HEAD

If you want a look that’s fun, undone, and can be achieved in under a minute, messy bed head may be the answer you’re looking for. Here’s how to do it.
