“Cream soda hair” has been making the Hollywood rounds on stars like Gigi Hadid and Lauren Conrad. But you don’t have to be an A-lister to pull it off. In fact, the best part of this hot hair trend is that it looks great on anyone. Seriously. Here’s everything you need to know about the style.
So what exactly is this “cream soda hair”? No, it’s not when you wash your hair with cream soda – there are no carbonated beverages involved. Instead, it refers to the caramel color from a mixture of beige-y browns and warm golds creating a refreshing and sophisticated depth.
Who should try it? Anyone looking for a summer update. The brown and blonde shades can be adapted to all hair colors – yes, even you “root beer”–haired ladies – for an instant brightening effect. Thanks to strategically placed, face-framing golden highlights, it even gives your complexion a lit-from-within glow à la Gigi (no UV rays necessary). And double bonus: It’s healthier than going full-on platinum, because you’re coating fewer strands with bleach.
While you may not have actually indulged in a cream soda since, oh, seventh grade, you have to admit that it makes for a pretty perfect hair color.
