It looks seriously delish.
With its ribbons of buttery blonde and beigey brown, cream soda hair color is the sun-kissed hue you need to try. A nod to the bubbly, sweet sodas of yesteryear, cream soda hair color looks just as delicious as its namesake tastes. And, since it's universally flattering on just about everyone, it's no wonder so many Hollywood A-listers have been spotted with cream soda locks of their own! Want to get in on the eye-catching creamy craze? We share all the delicious details below.
What Is Cream Soda Hair Color?
Cream soda hair color serves up warm, creamy golden hues intertwined with light brown strands for a neutral, sun-kissed look. Think of it as this season's answer to bronde hair color. Cream soda hair color, while a beautiful and seamless blend of both blonde and brunette, leans more toward the lighter end of the spectrum. Since the sweetly-named color adds a bit of warmth and dimension to blonde, it makes it the perfect hair color option for fall when you naturally want to go a bit darker.
The best part about cream soda hair color is that it looks beautiful against so many different skin tones and it can be entirely customized to your overall look. Prefer more dimension at the root? Want your ends extra light? Just ask your hairdresser to tweak the look to fit you!
How Can I Get Cream Soda Hair Color?
Achieving a perfectly blended cream soda hair color is not as simple as running to the drugstore for a box of cream soda hair dye-it doesn't exist. Cream soda hair color requires a professional touch. Unlike other hair transformations, cream soda hair color is not just a color, but rather a combination of different golden blonde and beigey brunette shades applied strategically to create a flattering, natural-looking finish. As a result, if this is the new 'do you're hoping to achieve this autumn, it's best to leave it up to your L'Oréal Professionnel colorist to bring your look to life.
While your colorist will customize the color specifically for you, the process will include a mix of techniques. You can expect balayage or foiled highlights-focused around the face-and lowlights and a toner to ensure that the final shade is neutral-toned and not too warm or ashy.
How Do I Take Care of My New Cream Soda Hair Color?
Since cream soda hair color follows the same principles of past color crazes, being that it looks natural when it begins to grow out, the maintenance is fairly low key. To help it stay as vibrant as possible, switch out your regular shampoo and conditioner for a duo formulated for colored hair that will be less harsh on your color-treated strands. From there, schedule a glossing treatment with your colorist every 4-6 weeks to pump up the color and shine.
How to Style Cream Soda Hair Color
As with all of the hair color trends that intertwine multiple shades, cream soda hair color looks amazing with loose, tousled waves. After drying your hair straight using a heat protectant , wrap 1-inch sections of your hair around the barrel of a curling iron, alternating the wrap away from and toward your face. (Note: The face-framing layers should always be curled away from the face.) After all of the curls have cooled, use a vented paddle brush and brush through them to create that sought-after loose wave.
And there you have it, your soon-to-be favorite look is just a sip (and salon appointment) away.
