Trend alert: Gingerbread latte hair is this season's most delicious shade!

Looking for a new colour to sink your teeth into? Then sample this season's most delicious beverage-inspired shade, gingerbread latte!

What is gingerbread latte hair color?

Hair stylists have clearly been inspired by their favourite festive season treat for this latest colour trend. Hot on the heels of cinnamon swirl, pumpkin spice and cream soda shades, this combination of colours is for brunettes who want to add a hint of warmth to their look.

The key to gingerbread latte hair is a cool dark brown base in chocolate, coffee or even dark ash tones. This cool shade is then swirled with warm highlights, from copper to honey and amber depending on the base. The highlights are deliberately placed subtly throughout the hair, creating depth and brightening the complexion. Plus, because the roots are dark, this is an easy colour to maintain and to grow out if you choose.

How to wear gingerbread latte hair

While gingerbread latte hair can be worn however you like, it looks its best when styled into natural-looking waves to truly showcase the delicious colour combination.

After washing, naturally wavy-haired girls should use a curl-enhancing cream such as Waves Fatales from the Hollywood Waves collection by Tecni.ART. Simply run down the lengths of the hair before blow-drying using a barrel brush to enhance the curls.

A messy ballerina bun or braided updo can also look great with gingerbread latte hair, as the different colours subtly weave around each other. Remember to use a finishing spray like Infinium hairspray, to ensure your look stays in place.
