Espresso hair color is the best shade for those looking to give in to their dark side. Mari Carmen Madrigal, Spanish L'Oréal Professionnel brand ambassador, lends us her expertise on the best styles to make your decadent hair color stand out.
Get your hair game simmering with these three gorgeous styles in androgynous hairstyles or something a bit more classic.
Espresso Hair Color With Caramel Highlights And Bangs
"Espresso hair color softens the features and brings warmth to the face," Madrigal says. "It adds sensuality and makes the hair look healthy and silky."
Paired with caramel highlights and long bangs, the shade gorgeously frames and illuminates the face. Thanks to this face-slimming cut and warm, multidimensional color, the final look is a real stunner. If your facial profile is on the long side, this look is definitely one to try out.
Espresso Hair Color With Double Braids
How gorgeous is this double-braided espresso brown hair updo? This style can be dressed up or down, making it ideal for all occasions, and requires minimal prep. And the best part?
“Chocolate brown hair works on all skin types,” Madrigal says.
Perfect for making your eye color truly pop, espresso hair color is a must.
Espresso Hair Color High Ponytail
Sleek and beautiful, a high ponytail is a perfect way to show off your stunning dark espresso hair color. Just make sure you’re following the right hair care routine behind the scenes to get enviable high shine.
Madrigal advises investing in a salon-quality hair care system, saying:
“Use a shampoo safe for color-treated hair and incorporate a mask in your routine. The L’Oréal Professionnel Serie Expert Vitamino Color A-OX [system] is a great option. You can also use serums for the ends and oils like L’Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil Huile Originale for nourished and shiny results—once a week to provide optimal nourishment."
