Cream soda: the trend you're about to see everywhere

The "cream soda" hair colour trend is as delicious as the name sounds! But what exactly is it and should you be ordering a serve right now? Let's take a closer look at the cream soda craze...

What is cream soda color?


As always, Los Angeles is dictating the hair colour trend direction and this season the LA beauty scene is buzzing about cream soda. This hair colour trend offers an alternative to block coloured blonde as it uses warm, creamy golden hues to lighten and brighten the hair. Say goodbye to yellow or golden blonde tones too - this look is all about subtle warmth and a natural finish. As opposed to ombre and balayage, cream soda is more about creating dimension by using colour contrasts of an array of blonde shades. Take your pick anywhere from a lighter, beach blonde or a rich and intense blonde hue – the possibilities are endless!

How can I get cream soda hair?

That's why the look can only be achieved in-salon by a professional colourist who knows exactly how to perfect the right colour combination to flatter your skin tone and current hair colour. After you've had your bespoke cream soda colour professionally applied, the upkeep at home is fairly simple. Because the shade looks so natural, you can let the roots grow out gradually, which will only enhance your cream soda style.

If your hair is not naturally wavy, you can still get gorgeous cream soda curls by using the Bouncy and Tender styling cream from Tecni.ART's Dual Stylers collection. Simply apply to wet hair after washing, and use a diffuser to blow dry the hair into stunning tousled waves. Fix in place with a spritz of natural-hold hairspray like .
