While it might seem as if hair color trends are a dime a dozen this season, we’re not complaining. From rose brown to pearl blonde, we love seeing ladies switch up their locks like they switch up their nail polish. Now, a radiant hair trend for brunettes is resurging just in time for summer, and we’re more than here for the low maintenance, multi-dimensional blend. Move aside, cream soda—root beer hair is giving all the soda-inspired tint we need.
This is how you know you’ve spotted a root beer mane in the wild: you’ll see a medium-to-dark brunette with rich swirls of warm color, thanks to auburn and amber highlights. The trend is all about that bold, syrupy finish achieved from adding major warmth to brown hair. Incredibly versatile, this hair color works for all skin tones. Simply pick your starting base, anywhere from dark chocolates to medium chestnuts; and accentuate with strokes of the warm red-brown shades of your choice, from gold-flecked amber to syrupy cinnamon. Go subtle or striking—just definitely go root beer. Here are a few gorgeous renditions of the root beer hair trend we’re ready to drink in all season long.
