While springtime used to be all about different shades of blonde, brunettes are having a serious moment. Between Snickers shake hair, chocolate brown hues, and mushroom brown, spring hair colors have never leaned so dark—and we’re completely here for it.

If you’re not entirely convinced you should opt for dark brown hair this spring, you’re in luck! There’s another brunette color trend having its moment in the sun: honey brown hair, the perfect balance of light and dark shades. Keep scrolling for everything you need to know about the sweet shade.

What is honey brown hair?

With spring in full bloom, many blondes are switching things up from the ashy, platinum shades of winter, with warm, golden hues taking their place. If you’re a brunette that doesn’t want to go completely light, however, you can still give this sunkissed trend a go. It’s time to meet honey brown!

The light brown hair color with hints of natural-looking honey throughout is truly the best of both worlds. Brunettes can stay true to their roots while adding a low-maintenance touch of brightness and dimension to their mane.

If you’re starting out with very dark hair, your colorist will need to use bleach to lift your color before applying the golden honey shade. While bleach will always cause damage, your stylist can work with you to ensure that you leave the salon with your strands looking and feeling their best.

How do you care for honey brown hair?

Now that you’ve fallen in love with honey brown hair, here comes the fun part: maintaining your new hue. While honey brown is on the low-maintenance side of salon color, it’s still important to pack your care routine with products formulated for color-treated hair.

First, swap out your regular shampoo and conditioner with a color-safe system like the Biolage R.A.W Color Care line. Formulated with coconut milk and meadowfoam, the system helps protect color-treated hair, leaving it soft and shiny with lasting color vibrancy.

If your strands are feeling extra dry after a color session, incorporating a weekly hair mask into your routine can do wonders for the look and feel of your strands. The Pureology Superfood Treatment is formulated with goji berry extract and olive oil to help fortify and strengthen damaged hair.

The damaging effects of heat can do a number on the vibrancy of your color. We recommend investing in a heat protectant such as the Biolage Thermal Active Setting Spray, which protects hair against heat styling while adding body and volume for long-lasting control.

Who does honey brown hair work best for?

The best part about honey brown hair is that the shade looks stunning on almost everyone. Whether you opt for a full head of honey brown, highlights, or a honey brown balayage, the color is the perfect transition into natural-looking summertime hair that flatters any skin tone.
