With the colder months ahead, we’re already on the lookout for a new set of hair color trends to obsess over. While we loved the warm, sunny blondes and vibrant pink hues of summer, a new beverage-inspired trend has piqued our interest. Champagne hair color is the hair color you need for fall.

Interested in learning more about champagne hair color? Read on for everything you need to know.

What is champagne hair color?

As you may have guessed, champagne hair color is inspired by the famous celebratory beverage. Your colorist will create a soft, creamy hue with an emphasis on shine, resembling a sparkling glass of champagne.

Champagne hair can be worn super light or on the darker side depending on your skin tone. If you’re unsure, your colorist can help you determine what look might be best for you.

How do you care for champagne hair color?

With any color change, you can expect to switch up your hair care routine a bit. Since every great maintenance routine starts with a salon-quality shampoo and conditioner, we recommend picking up one formulated specifically for color-treated hair like the Redken Color Extend system. This color-protecting shampoo improves hair strength to help prevent against breakage and provides maximum vibrancy of color-treated hair.

If you’re a seasoned salon blonde, you already know bleach can wreak havoc on the look and feel of your hair. Since champagne hair will likely require your colorist to bleach your strands, a weekly hair mask is a must. We love the Redken All Soft Deep Conditioning Mega Mask.

To keep your champagne hair color looking its best, expect to head back to the salon every four tosix weeks for touch-ups. If you’re a natural blonde, you may be able to stretch out the time between salon appointments a bit longer.

Interested in trying a champagne hair color for yourself? Before you head to the salon, keep scrolling for some of our favorite ways to wear the look.

Champagne Balayage

Concerned about frequent root touch-ups? Opt for a champagne balayage. Your colorist will hand paint the champagne hue from your mid-lengths to ends while leaving your roots closer to your natural color.

Soft Champagne

Not too bright, not too shiny—a soft champagne look is ideal for everyone looking for a subtle color change.

Warm Champagne

Natural brunettes, this one is for you. If you’re not ready to fully commit to lighter hair, ask your colorist for a warm champagne balayage.

Champagne Blush

Blush shades are the perfect way to add a touch of color to your champagne hair without completely washing out your complexion.

To help protect your blush color from untimely fading, try the L'Oréal Professionnel Vitamino Color A-OX Color Radiance Jelly Mask. The product helps prolong color radiance for color-treated hair in one minute only.

Pearly Champagne

When it comes to champagne hair colors, pearl is the brightest of them all. To maintain your iridescent hue in between touch-ups, invest in a color depositing shampoo and conditioner like the Redken Color Extend Blondage system.

Silver Champagne Balayage

Looking to take your cool-toned look to the next level? Ask your stylist to create a champagne blonde and silver balayage.

If you do decide on adding silver to your look, we recommend the L'Oréal Professionnel Serie Expert Silver Shampoo. The neutralizing system, enriched with magnesium and anti-yellowing agents, counteracts unwanted brassy tones.
