Espresso Hair Color

This creamy color is one of our favorite trends we’ve seen so far in 2017.

1. Espresso hair is super low maintenance.

As far as dyeing your hair goes, espresso hair color falls on the lighter end of the maintenance scale. Regardless of what shade of brown your natural color is, this creamy color won’t be too far off and it will seamlessly grow out into a soft ombré. If you’re aiming to have your color last far into the later stages of an ombré style, make sure to protect your strands with the Nexxus New York Salon Care Promend Heat Protecting Mist before any heat styling.

2. This shade practically goes with with everything.

Some hair color experiments (hello, pink hair!) steal the show and limit what kind of outfit and makeup combinations you can rock. This coffee-colored hue is like your favorite camel coat: it goes with everything and is an easy way to look and feel on-trend.

3. It’s perfect if you’re new to the hair dye scene.

New to the hair color world? Save your debut as a redhead for a little farther into your journey. Opting for a variation on your natural color that’s noticeably different from your usual hue is the best place to start. Make sure you’re taking proper care of your newly dyed strands, though, and wash and condition your hair with the TRESemmé Color Revitalize Shampoo and TRESemmé Color Revitalize Conditioner.
