Trending Spring 2016 hair color: chocolate brown

This spring people won't only be eating chocolate for Easter – they'll be putting it in their hair! Well not the actual sugary stuff (phew!) but a chocolate brown hair color that lets us welcome the warm weather in a sweet way.

You've already heard us talk about French girl hair, French brown hair, caramel brown hair and we even mentioned that chocolate brown was a Fall 2015 trend. However the rich decadence of the color is so irresistible that it'll be sticking around this spring and summer.

How to choose between dark chocolate and milk chocolate

Just like regular chocolate, lots of different variations of chocolate brown exist. A deep brown color with warm highlights would work great on chestnut brown hair, whereas someone with ebony colored hair would look stunning with the addition of some cooler toned highlights.

In order to obtain your desired chocolate brown color it's important to book an appointment with your hairdresser who will be able to talk to you about the different possibilities that exist for your hair type, skin tone and even personality! The time you'll spend at the salon to get your hair colored will depend on your natural shade and how healthy your locks already are – if you want a beautiful long-lasting result, then a treatment like Pro Fiber might need to be applied after. And keep in mind that if you're a blonde then you'll most likely need to get your hair pre-colored before being able to cross over to the dark side.

How to take care of your chocolate brown hair

Whether your chocolate brown is on the light or dark side, the highlights that are put into your hair are what will really make the new shade pop. To keep them from fading too quickly, consider investing in haircare products that will protect your color like the Vitamino Color Shampoo from L'Oréal Professionnel.

Instead of normal chocolate this year consider asking the Easter bunny for a new chocolate brown hair color – you'll look delectable!
