Another day, another coffee hair-color trend. While cold brew and iced mocha had their days in the sun (especially you, iced mocha, yum), fall is bringing a transition into deeper, chocolatey browns, and caramel mocha hair is the dye job that’s doing it. It’s a scrumptious shade, reminiscent of a black cup of coffee, with caramel highlights to accent and frame the face.
In a sea of hair colors named after coffee drinks — so many, you’d think Starbucks was sponsoring the entire concept — this one stands out due to the lovely peachy tones of the caramel highlights, which makes the color perfect to take anyone from summer into fall. The look was achieved by hairstylist Caitlin Dugan of Gloss Color Studio in West Hartford, CT, who told Allure how she made the gorgeous hair color happen.
Dugan told Allure that her client’s hair “was less dimensional to start and more of a solid brown,” and much like Rome, this hair color can’t be built in a day — “this color was basically built in two sessions,” Dugan shared. She used the balayage technique to paint her client’s hair with Blondme Bond Enforcing Premium Clay Lightener (which she calls “the holy grail when it comes to consistency and lift”), mixed equally with the Blondme Bond Enforcing Premium Lightener 9+.
She then incubated in foil, and then glossed the hair with Redken Shades EQ Hair Gloss in 7C, 7CB, 8WG, 9AA, and peach, mixing equal parts with 13 volume developer, like Wella Color Touch Intensive Emulsion Developer 13 Volume 4%. The waves were achieved with the Bio Ionic GrapheneMX™ Curling Iron 1.25″ and Seven Haircare’s Cubica Working Hairspray with Seven Haircare Satara Texture Cream.
What resulted is a gorgeous warm, rich, seamless color. When it comes to recreating this color for yourself, Dugan says, “I would suggest they ask for warmth, richness, and pops of contrast.”
For maintenance, Dugan suggests returning to the salon for a balayage and gloss refresh around 12 weeks and using professional sulfate-free shampoo conditioner and heat protectant. Unless you’re like, super into damaging your hair. Also, SPF is good for your hair, too — Dugan told us, “I also love products with UVA and UVB protection.” Our personal fave? Coola Suncare’s Scalp & Hair Mist Organic Sunscreen SPF 30.
