Want to try a new shade of hair color? Blues and pinks do a great job of making you stand out. So do shades of purple. If you’re not yet ready to try these bold colors yet, consider cinnamon hair. Read on to see what makes this medium color different. Check out pegs, too, that you can show to your stylist should you decide to give cinnamon hair a try.
What is cinnamon hair?
Cinnamon hair is a medium shade of brown with a bit of orange thrown in. An untrained eye might confuse cinnamon hair with ginger, but these two are different. Ginger has more orange in it, while cinnamon has more brown. Cinnamon hair falls under the brown spectrum, with it being a shade lighter than auburn.
Because Pinays have naturally dark hair, bleaching may be done in order to achieve cinnamon hair. This can cause damage to your hair, as bleaching opens up the cuticles and makes hair rough, dry, and dull. Protect your hair from damage by using a conditioner that is specifically designed for colored hair.
Editor’s tip: Use Cream Silk Color Protect Conditioner to help your hair recover lost moisture while maintaining your hair’s gorgeous color.
Pegs for cinnamon hair
Try these gorgeous ‘dos together with cinnamon hair:
1. Straight lob
Pin-straight bob or lob won’t look flat and uninteresting with this color. Make your hair sleek and straight by using a flat iron. Don’t forget to spray heat protectant on your hair before ironing to prevent heat damage.
Editor’s tip: Spritz TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray on your hair before blow drying our ironing. This product acts like a barrier between your hair and styling tools, protecting your precious locks from getting dry and damaged.
2. Curly hair
Colored hair makes any hairstyle more apparent, including curls. Draw attention to your kulot hair—natural or styled—with cinnamon shade. Worried that you might look like a lion? Put hair mousse on your hair then blow dry to help set your curls properly.
Editor’s tip: Apply a dollop of TONI&GUY Volume Plumping Mousse to help define your curls and keep frizz at bay. No more lion hair!
3. Textured ‘do
Didn’t have time to style your hair this morning? Or did you wake up late because your alarm didn’t go off? Don’t worry! Just scrunch your hair and spritz texturizing spray and voila! You have a chic, textured hairstyle. This works great on days when you’ve skipped washing your hair, or when you want to add life to your flat and limp hair. Go for this look, too, if you love messy hairstyles.
Editor’s tip: Add texture to your hair and nail messy ‘dos with TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray.
