“Black Espresso” Is Autumn’s Moodiest Hair Colour Trend, and We’re So Into It
I don’t consider myself much of a foodie, but I have to admit that this fall’s biggest hair colour predictions – some of which boast names like “Champagne pop” and “chocolate almond” – sound nothing short of delicious. “Espresso black,” for example, is another rising hair colour trend that gets its name from a beloved beverage, only this one is just moody enough to fit your fall aesthetic.
As the name suggests, the colour is a very dark brown that almost looks black, and you can see the chocolate-y tones better under sunlight. According to Karissa Schaudt, a colourist at Maxine Salon, if you’re planning on making a dark-hair shift at some point, there’ll be no better time to do it than in the next few months.
“It’s smart to transition into this dramatic color during the cooler months to prevent fading due to sun exposure.”
“It’s smart to transition into this dramatic colour during the cooler months to prevent fading due to sun exposure,” she previously told POPSUGAR. Colourist Rex Jimieson agreed, and also said that achieving the hue is as simple as adding “black to your medium or dark-brown base colour with foils or balayage rather than going completely solid. Ask for a demi permanent so you can change it down the road and it will be super shiny.”
