The Brunette Hair Color Tip You Need To Know

Gals, this hair hue tip I just scored from colorist Marko Tomassetti at Sally Hershberger for brunettes is so genius I had to drop everything and share. Says Marko, “Brew a really strong pot of coffee (avoid instant), let it cool and add the coffee to a spray bottle. Once a week after shampooing, spray the coffee throughout your hair, let it sit for 5-10 minutes, rinse and condition. The coffee helps to boosts your color and add richness!” He also advises that those with olive skin add a bit of warmth to their shade so that it doesn’t look one dimensional. In the sage words of Doc Brown to Marty McFly in Back To The Future II, “You’re not thinking FOURTH DIMENSIONALLY.” If your skin skews more yellow, he says to stick with medium brown.

Now go brew that pot of coffee and spritz with abandon pre-Halloween bash!

    Hey Laura!

    That’s actually a great question. I’d say no, the coffee simply is a vehicle for distributing brown pigment, which could work on natural or unnatural color to restore vibrancy. Test it out and let me know how it goes!

    This might be a dumb question, but does your hair have to be dyed for this to work. For us natural brunettes, can this boost our color/richness too? xo
