Summer may only be a few weeks away, but the unpredictable weather makes us wish the first day of summer was tomorrow. While there isn’t much we can do to speed along the seasons, we have the perfect way to channel your inner beach babe without ever stepping foot on the beach: hair bronzing.

The latest hair coloring technique is like a tan for your strands, giving your dark brown hair or ash blonde locks the much-needed glow it was missing during the winter and spring. Sound like this hair coloring technique is perfect for you? Continue reading for everything you need to know about hair bronzing.


What is hair bronzing? 

Inspired by the bronze makeup trend, hair bronzing is a technique that combines golden hues with iridescent metallic shades to give your hair brilliant shine and a subtle tanned effect.


How does hair bronzing look its best?

If it sounds like hair bronzing is perfect for you, you’re probably wondering to wear it. Continue scrolling for three of our favorite hair bronzing looks.


If your hair color needs a refresh: Sun-Kissed Glow 

You don’t have to completely change your look to take advantage of the hair bronzing technique. If you love the color of your strands and just want to amp up the bronze factor, ask your colorist to choose a hair bronzing shade close to your original hair color to give your strands a skin-kissed glow. The change may be subtle, but if you want your new glow to last as long as possible, we recommend switching out your shampoo and conditioner for a system formulated for color treated hair. We love the L’Oréal Professionnel A-OX Vitamino Color Shampoo and Conditioner.


If your hair color needs a bit of change: Two-Toned Tan

If you’re looking to add a bit of dimension to your color and give it a slightly different tone, hair bronzing is perfect for you. To achieve this dimensional look, you and you colorist will choose two complementary shades that will give your strands depth and help it achieve an Instagram-worthy bronze glow. To maintain your new dimensional hue, we recommend swapping out your regular shampoo and conditioner for the L’Oréal Professionnel Lumino Contrast Shampoo and Mask.


If you want a total hair color transformation: Bronze Goddess

Hair bronzing doesn’t have to be subtle and if you’re looking for a complete hair color transformation, we have just the inspiration for you. Instead of strategically placing a few highlights or choosing a color close to your original hue, you and your colorist will choose your new hue from a range of hair bronzing shades.

Once you’ve got your new look, you’ll need to completely overhaul your hair care routine. First, swap out your regular shampoo and conditioner for the L’Oréal Professionnel A-OX Vitamino Color Shampoo and Conditioner. Then, add a weekly deep conditioning mask like the L’Oréal Professionnel Source Essentielle Radiance Mask to your hair care routine.

Now that you know about hair bronzing, you don’t have to hit the beach to get the ultimate tanned glow.
