Is Strawberry Brunette the New Way to Add a Hint of Red to Brown Hair?
There has never been a time when strawberry blonde hair hasn’t been on-trend. The gorgeous light-red hair color has been the go-to hue for blondes who don’t want to go full redhead and redheads who don’t want to go full blonde (Mikki G). But at last, brunettes can finally get in on the ever-so-subtly red fun. The hashtags #strawberrybrunette and #straberrybrown are trending on Instagram these days, and they show how stylists are giving their brunette clients a splash of red without the intensity of auburn or burgundy.
Where strawberry blonde shades tend to lean peachy, stylists appear to be adding rosy, pink-red hues to brown hair to create the strawberry brunette look. Instead of well-defined highlights, it’s more like a wash of juicy colour that softly pops with the base color’s natural variation.
