Caramel isn’t just a great dessert topping anymore. Ladies everywhere are starting to incorporate caramel color into their locks, and it’s absolutely stunning. Jennifer Lopez has long rocked the caramel shade, but this spring and summer it’s a full on trend. Caramel hair color is synonymous with a light brown tone, packed with warmth. While many ladies tend to feel like they can’t wear caramel color in their hair, there’s definitely a caramel shade for you. We have some ideas to incorporating caramel into your hair and choosing the best caramel shade for your hair.
As we mentioned before, Jennifer Lopez has stayed loyal to caramel hair color. She’s the perfect example of a full caramel look. Incorporating the caramel shade to all of your hair is a great way to add some major warmth and honey-brown tone to your entire look. Because caramel isn’t a severe color, it’s not something that’s going to wash you out or be TOO bold-regardless of your skin color.
Face Framing Highlights
Another one of our favorite ways to try the caramel hair color is with face framing highlights. This is perfect for those that don’t want to commit to a larger change, but still want the warmth added to their hair color for the summer season. Adding just a few strategically placed face framing highlights can be just enough to create a warm and fresh feel to your hair. Try highlights that are in the lower layers of your hair for an even more updated twist to the highlight look. This gives a more peek-a-boo type of twist that’s sure to feel on-trend.
If you’re not quite ready (or interested) in rocking a full caramel hair shade, the grown out style can be a great alternative. With the grown out roots color technique being so on-trend it’s a great way to try the trend with a more subtle color combination. Again, caramel is such a warm and subtle hair color so adding it in with a grown out root technique is sure to be a subtly, warm look. But don’t think that because the colors adds some subtly to the look that it’s boring-it’s sure to make a gorgeous, honey brown statement. Leaving the roots grown out at the top helps to add a bit of contrast between a darker hair color and the caramel.
Of course, caramel shades are perfect for creating a gorgeous ombre look with your hair. Because of the warmth in the shade, it has a way of making any ombre technique feel a bit more natural and cohesive when added to the mix. Countless celebs have been rocking ombre with caramel added to the mix and every single one that steps out with the caramel ombre makes a stunning hair statement. The great thing about ombre is your hair stylist is able to adjust the way the colors fade and where they fade to flatter your features in the best way.
