Stunning Cinnamon Locks

Of all the food-inspired looks out there, we want to shine a light on one that’s gorgeous and that you might consider for the upcoming fall and winter seasons — Cinnamon! We’ll chat a little about this shade below, but once you’re ready to dip your toes in and try it on your own hair, call us to schedule an appointment at Salon Antoine!

Why is Cinnamon So Popular?

Cinnamon is a slight red tone and was made to put the spice back into your locks. Everyone from make-up mogul Kylie Jenner to actress Zendaya and singer Rihanna have been seen strutting this beautiful shade, and you can too! This color works great on those who already have brown hair, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t add some cinnamon to your blonde or already red strands. The great thing about cinnamon is that you can stay as subtle as you want or go as vibrant as you would like. The world is your oyster! You can also choose to just add in some highlights of this hue to your current color or get the ombre, which will make the lower part of your locks this eye-catching shade. And if you decide to pair it with a bright top and lipstick, the color will stand out instantly.

Styles & Cuts

Whether you currently have short or long hair, you’ll turn heads your way with the cinnamon color. It doesn’t matter if you decide to curl your hair to show off the contrast of the shade with your base color or wear it sleek and straight, you can’t go wrong. You might even decide to do a crown braid or a high ponytail. The end result will be a stunning hairstyle that shows off this breakthrough shade. As mentioned, cinnamon is so eye-popping whether you simply add some highlights of the shade closer to your face or go fully in and color your entire head in this option. Also, believe it or not, this color looks wonderful even on a pixie cut. It just might be the very first thing individuals notice once you step foot out of the house.

Incredibly, cinnamon is a low-maintenance color that looks striking even when your natural roots begin to show. Of course, while you might not be visiting the salon often, there are some hair-care procedures to follow to ensure the shade is always looking glossy and fresh. For starters, wait at least two days before washing it for the first time and make sure to apply a color-treated shampoo. Along with this, you might think about purchasing a deep conditioner that will moisturize your hair and keep it looking bright. As much as you may want to grab for the straightener or curling iron, maybe opt for air drying or creating a hairstyle by hand to avoid too much heat. Last, but not least, come and see us in six to eight weeks for a fresh cut and perhaps even a color touch-up.
