Trend alert: Gingerbread latte hair is going to warm up your winter

Feeling a little chilly? Warm up your winter with a delicious shade of gingerbread latte! Haven't heard about the trend yet? It's the latest food- and beverage-inspired hair color, and it's perfect for winter...

What is gingerbread latte hair color?

Hair stylists have clearly been inspired by their favorite holiday-period warm beverage for this latest trend. Hot on the heels of cinnamon swirl, pumpkin spice and cream soda shades, this combination of colors is for brunettes, or those looking to snuggle into a darker color for the holidays.

The key to gingerbread latte hair is a cool dark brown base in chocolate, coffee or even dark ash tones. This cool shade is then swirled with warm highlights, from copper to honey and amber depending on the base. The highlights are deliberately placed subtly throughout the hair, creating depth and brightening the complexion. Plus, because the roots are dark, this is an easy color to maintain and to grow out if you choose.

How to wear gingerbread latte hair

While gingerbread latte hair can be worn however you like, it looks its best when styled into natural-looking waves to truly showcase the delicious color combinations that give this look its name.

After washing, naturally wavy-haired girls should use a curl-enhancing cream such as Waves Fatales from the Hollywood Waves collection by Tecni.ART . Simply run down the lengths of the hair before blow-drying using a barrel brush to enhance the curls. If you don't have natural waves, ask in-salon about the Beach Waves perm which turns straight hair into sultry tousled waves that last up to 8 weeks!

A messy ballerina bun or braided updo can also look great with gingerbread latte hair, as the different colors subtly weave around each other. Remember to use a finishing spray to ensure your look stays in place. We recommend the Infinium Pure hairspray , which not only gives reliable hold, but is also hypoallergenic and fragrance-free.
