Gingerbread Latte Hair Is The Sweetest Color Trend To Try This Winter

Winter is all about bundling up in your favorite furs and sipping on hot, seasonal confections. And now, in honor of this special time of year, you can not only drink a gingerbread spiced latte but wear it on your head, too. No, we’re not talking about the 6’7 guy accidentally spilling his drink on your lovely tresses – but rather the new hair color inspired by Starbucks’s delectable treat women everywhere are adopting.

First discovered by PopSugar, the look starts with a deep, brown base and ends with copper-colored highlights – basically mirroring milk added to coffee in your cup. The finish is natural and warm, making it the perfect update for dark-haired folk who want a subtle change. It’s also perfect for lazy girls, since the slight shade difference between the base and highlights requires minimal upkeep (no annoying touch-ups required).

If you’re considering trying this look, have your stylist strategically place the highlights to emphasize the undertones of your complexion. Colorist Chris Greene told Allure that gold or honey highlights create depth, while “the mixture of ebony brown, mocha, and violet-based colors will enhance the natural warm undertones of the skin.” The end result? “Everything is swirled together and looks very yummy!” he continued. It’s not hard to see why we’re currently obsessed with it!

There are variations on the trend, so you can have fun experimenting with more muted or vibrant tones. Aptly named “cinnamon gingerbread latte hair,” this spicy take on the original look is simply stunning. We don’t know about you, but this festive red-themed ombre is really doing it for us.

Of course, this isn’t the first time the Internet has gone crazy over a drink-inspired hair color. “Hot toddy hair” recently dominated Instagram feeds with its delicious blonde and auburn tones, while rich “mulled wine hair” conjured up images of cozy nights spent by the fire. And we can’t forget “pumpkin spice latte hair,” the gourd-inspired fall trend that’s just as sweet as the iconic PSL.
