Trend Alert: Charcoal Hair

Get the look!

Between all the rainbow braids, pastel hues, and flirty sorbet-inspired hair color being donned left and right, it is safe to say that colorful hair is on everyone's radar this summer. But if you're itching for something a little bit different (and arguably subtler), there's a new hair color trend that's calling your name: charcoal hair.

 

What is charcoal hair?

 

This deep, ashy color is not quite black and is not quite silver. It's a smoky, sultry grey that's universally flattering and totally edgy. There are more than one style and technique to embrace the color, such as balayage, dip-dye, draping, ombré and more.

 

How to get the look

 

Because the balance of colors is so important in a charcoal hair color look, professionals recommend getting a full professional lightening service in salon to create the perfect charcoal hue for you. For an ultra-personalized touch, you can ask your colorist to incorporate an additional color into your charcoal look, such as a bright streak or pastel peek-a-boo shade. Talk to your colorist about all of your options.

 

How to care for charcoal hair

 

At-home care is crucial to the health and integrity of the hair fiber, which helps to maintain hair color radiance. L'Oréal Professionnel's Serie Expert Vitamino Color A-OX shampoo is formulated specifically for color-treated hair and can cleanse the strands without stripping away your color. Follow with the line's conditioner for hair that is healthy-looking and ultra-glossy. Hair oil-like L'Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil Colour Glow Oil -can also help color-treated hair stay vibrant. Rub a few drops between your hands and run them down the lengths and tips of your hair.
