Latte Hair Colour - The Newest Hair Colour Trend
Latte Hair Colour - The Newest Hair Colour Trend
So… What is Latte Hair Colour ?
The latest trend to hit QUE colour’s salon in Sydney, is the ‘Latte hair colour’. Inspired by the viral Latte Makeup trend currently doing the rounds on TikTok, this is all about subtle, glossy, effortless hair with rich latte, bronze, biscuit tones that compliment your natural complexion with a beautiful almost unbelievable shine. If you are wanting a more natural hair colour and flawless look this is the perfect colour for you to try this season.
Stay ahead of the trend while we taking you on a deep dive of all things Latte. We’re going to break down exactly what it is, who suits the Latte hair colour look, how to ask for it at your hair salon and the products that will keep your hair super shiny and glazed.
What is Latte Hair Colour?
The Latte hair colour look evolved from the popular ‘Latte Makeup’ trend that went viral on TikTok recently. We are honestly in love with this trend as it optimises hair health as well as having a flawless natural looking shine similar to our glazed looks.
Monique McMahon from Que colour says, “Latte hair” is all about it’s particular colour scheme. In a nod to maroon-coloured lattes, this unique beauty look relies on a mix of bronzy, cream and caramel colours. In short, warm, shimmering tones enhance the complexion with subtlety, because this is the ultimate advantage of ‘latte hair’ to elevate, while remaining discreet.
Who Does it Suit?
This look is not only universal but timeless, made for both warm summer nights and golden hour on those perfect winter afternoons… honestly, there is almost no one who doesn’t suit having this look. Even if you have a dark base colour, you can shift your base even ½ a shade brighter to notice a flattering difference. As this is where the sun hits, and where most will naturally have lighter pieces, it gives a very organic and natural finish to the hair.
This look is very diverse in the way it uses all different coloured bases. It can be bronzed tones or a darker brown base colour. It’s that glowing from within the hair that gives it the latte look.
The great thing about Latte hair is that it is a universal service for all hair types. Similar to the ‘Glazed skin’ to ‘Glazed hair’ look, the ‘Latte makeup’ to ‘Latte hair’ trend is the new IT girl colour of the season.
What are the different colour Latte shades?
One of the lightest shades of the Latte hair is the beige Latte colour. This colour is more of a neutral toned blonde not too warm and not ashy or cool. It captures that super light blonde look while being super creamy. We like to think of a milk arrowroot biscuit with this colour.
Milk Tea Latte
In between our beige Latte and Milk chocolate we have the creamy Milk tea Latte colour. When we think of the Milk tea Latte colour we immediately get our inspiration from Bubble tea! This colour is a natural creamy brunette colour that is a mix of warm caramel, milky tones to compliment your complexion giving your hair the ultimate sun kissed glow.
Milk Chocolate Latte
The Milk chocolate colour is a lighter option than the deep bronze latte, this is perfect for olive skin tones, especially people with green eyes or brown eyes. This is a super soft shade to maintain so we recommend a touch up glaze every 6-7 weeks to keep your colour at its best!
Deep Bronze Latte
This is the darker brunette and can be quite universal flattering for both cool and olive skin tones. We take our inspiration from Penelope Cruz in the 90s and Emily Ratajkowski who both rock this colour. This is the richest tone of the Latte hair and we love a sebastien chocolate colourshine every 6 weeks to rich up the base. The colourshines are a great service to achieve the irresistible glaze finish.
What Celebrities Have Latte Hair Colour?
This viral trend on TikTok has turned the ‘Latte makeup’ into ‘Latte hair’ and everything in between. We believe this is because the trend promotes true healthy hair and healthy colour, which will never go out of style. 2023 is definitely the year of healthy, hydrated hair versus over-styling and chemical processing.
Our favourite muse Hailey Bieber has had the Latte hair look and we are OBSESSED. The blended bronzed colour is to die for. Other celebrities who have inspired us while they have been working this hair include Margot Robbie and Khloe Kardashian.
How Do I Ask For It?
An important note on this hair trend is that Latte hair can mean something different to everyone. To avoid confusion remember to take at least 3 reference photos to your hairstylist. This will help leave no room for error when making the change!
It’s important to remember here that this contrast in lightness is different on the screen to real life, so we always opt for a more subtle change first that can then be built on.
What products will help me keep my latte hair colour glossy?
At Que we offer a service called a Colourshine. Free from ammonia, alcohol and peroxide, Sebastian Cellophanes are a “hair-friendly” colour gloss. As well as heightening the reflectivity of each strand, Cellophanes strengthen hair, preserves natural moisture balance and protects against UV. Now, glossy, translucent colour means stronger, healthier-looking hair.
These are accessible, quick treatments that you can find at most hair salons! And the best part is it is an affordable way to get a celebrity-worthy shine. To keep this shine we recommend getting a colourshine every 6 - 8 weeks!
An absolute MUST when colouring hair to maximise hair health is the hydrating shampoo with Aloe Vera from Christophe Robin. This product is for dehydrated & dull hair. This silky moisture-rich shampoo, composed of 94% natural-origin ingredients, restores the appearance of dry, dull hair and gently cleanses so the scalp feels invigorated and the hair looks luminous and shiny.
The Christophe Robin regenerating mask with Prickly pear oil is amazing when dealing with all hair types. This creamy, intensely nourishing mask composed of 97% natural origin ingredients, offers support to dry, damaged or chemically treated hair so it appears not only healthy but rejuvenated and restored giving hair an instantly sumptuous look. The formula works to improve the appearance of split ends so hair feels stronger and silky to the touch with a visible glossy luminosity.
When blow drying or styling, Ibiza brushes are our go-to. The B4 65mm blonde boar bristle brush is a must when blow drying or styling. This brush is to volumise hair and is ideal for the crown of the head and medium to long hair. Blonde Boar bristles are ideal for colour-treated hair and fine hair. The blonde bristles give more shine than the black bristles, just a little, but a little goes a long way in the world of hair.
