From flavored lip glosses to the realistic (but fake) food displays in restaurants, some things are simply delicious-looking enough to eat. Apparently, this can also apply to hair color, thanks to a new trend that's all about dye jobs inspired by desserts!
Just recently, colorists at Jing Monis Salon have been coming up with a slew of balayages and two-tone hair color combos inspired by popular dessert drinks like brown sugar milk tea and milk chocolate. Though these colors on their own are nothing new, the technique and mixing of both highlights and lowlights are a refreshing take on these familiar browns.
That said, we’ve rounded up a list of hair colors that anyone with a sweet tooth would love! From a luscious caramel dye job to a creamy milk tea brown shade, here are the hair colors to try if you’d want your tresses to look deliciously stylish no matter the season!
7 Brown Hair Colors Inspired by Your Favorite Desserts
1. Milk Tea Brown
We’d like to call this a cult classic hairstyle at this point, since ash browns are a certified favorite amongst Filipinas. This is a great go-to color if you’d like to soften your features and possibly give yourself a more feminine look. This particular dye job also looks best on longer layered tresses if you’d like to emphasize its texture but in a subtle manner.
2. Dark Chocolate Brown
This color is safe but not boring since it’s a rich deep shade that works well if you’re sporting a shaggy ‘do! TBH, there’s something undeniably chic about a cool dark hue on thick and luscious tresses. We advise that you try this if you’ve got short hair—a layered pixie or mullet perhaps—to keep things polished despite the abundance of texture.
3. Brown Sugar Milk Tea
A deeper and more natural shade of Milk Tea Brown, Jing Monis’ version features a wash of ash over a chocolate brown base. The beauty of this color is that it’s subtle but the milk tea shade shines through when it hits the light—giving your ‘do some dimension when it moves!
Think about your favorite caramel sundae and that creamy copper-colored syrup with a brown undertone. Doesn’t that sound like a gorgeous hair color to have? If you’re not ready to make a statement, then you better try this bold hue!
This sweet deep brown is right between caramel and chocolate! On its own, it could come across a little plain, but paired with ash brown or golden blonde highlights, this is the perfect base color to have for that beach-ready look!
6. Milk Chocolate Balayage
Jing Monis Salon's take on this safe color is to add in subtle highlights to create dimension. The highlights act as the "milk swirl" that’s added into the cacao.
7. Cinnamon Swirl
This color is all about the contrast. Just like a golden-brown cinnamon bun, this ‘do features blonde face-framing highlights and prominent dark lowlights that really add dimension to your hair! This looks best when paired with long hair with barely any layers so that the color is the main highlight.
