Sweet and universally flattering, the honey hair color is a timeless shade that will never fade from popularity. Constance Robbins, Matrix global artist, lends her expertise on this neutral tone as we give you three gorgeous variations to bring to your hairdresser.

Brilliant Gold Honey

This honey hair color hair hue is as effortless as it is classic. As far as blonde goes, this shade is one of the most flattering on darker skin. 

There’s a reason why the signature [lingerie model] sun-kissed hair is the most requested color. Darker blondes on darker skin tones look sophisticated and effortless.

Bodacious Dark Honey

To add to the effortless vibe, here’s a styling tip from the expert: 

“Give your hair a break a few times a week and style your hair without heat. Loose braids and air dried waves are a perfect no-heat solution. I love to spray Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Texturizing Styling Spray to help give my hair touchable texture,” Robbins says. 


Sweet Caramel Honey


This sweet, warm tone is beautifully natural while still brightening up the face. To have the most vibrant color, Robbins recommends clarifying your hair once a week. 

“Clarifying can bring out the radiance and shine and help remove any dullness from the hair. I like to follow up with a mask afterward to help replenish the hair and give it extra moisture. My current fave is the Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Re-Hydrate Clay Mask.”
