For those of us are still experiencing hot-as-hell weather, the only way to cope is by dreaming about deliciously crisp fall looks. While we love new boots, a fresh pair of jeans, or a soft wool coat, nothing signals the changing of the season like a new hair color. And kicking off this fall (even if it’s a bit early) is the latest Instagram trend—cold brew hair.
This past summer was all about vibrant hair color trends, like tie-dye hair and Harry Potter-inspired butterbeer hair. Now, in mid-August, it looks like people are craving warm, brown tones with a hint of cocoa, and we don’t blame them. The coffee-inspired hue is perfect for the fall season.
PopSugar first reported on this trend when the Instagram account @behindthechair_com shared a picture of @hairby_kimberlyy‘s client. It’s a rich, toffee-colored shade that lives up to its name. The trend really began earlier this summer (as you can see from Elite Daily writer Brittany Leitner‘s post about her own cold brew hair), but it seems like it’s starting to pick up steam.
Book that appointment with your colorist so you can hop on the cold brew hair train while it’s still hot.
Isn’t it beautiful?
What’s great about this trend is that you can really customize it to your own preferences.
You can go darker and richer if you prefer a more subtle, classic look.
You can also play up the milky coffee factor and go a bit lighter in some areas to contrast the rest of your hair.
Either way, it looks positively divine.
You can even add a dash of caramel highlights.
Can’t let go of your summer blonde ‘do? A little balyage blending will do you right.
Luckily, cold brew comes in a wide variety of shades.
The OG cold brew hair had quite a bit of mocha sprinkled in and it’s gorgeous.
Will you be trying this new fall hair trend? We know we sure will.
