Chocolate cherry hair color is this fall season’s must-have shade. The color, a mix between rich chocolate and deep cherry, is the hair color trend spearheaded by New York colorist Jenna Perry who regularly works with celebs like Maude Apatow, Bella Hadid, and Chloë Sevigny.
The chocolate brown color and warm red tones are perfect for the fall season.
What is Chocolate Cherry Hair Color?
Chocolate cherry falls somewhere between cherry red and mocha chocolate hair color, creating a rich chocolate brown, black cherry color.
The chocolate cherry hue is an excellent choice if your hair has golden or red natural tones. It is also suitable for those with warm skin undertones like golden, tan, or olive. You can check your skin undertone by looking at the veins in your wrist. If they are green instead of blue, you have a warm undertone.
Which Celebs Changed Their Color to Chocolate Cherry Recently?
One adopter of the chocolate cherry trend is the 9 Perfect Strangers and Tell Me Lies star, Grace Van Patten. Her naturally chocolate brown hair has recently run the gamut of colors, with celebrity colorist Jenna Perry calling her a “hair chameleon.”
Perry recently took the actor from blonde to the “super dark” chocolate cherry that naturally complemented the red undertones in her natural hair.
Which Hair Dye is Best for Chocolate Cherry?
The chocolate cherry color is a mix of highlights and lowlights, adjusted according to your natural hair color and skin tone. Because it’s challenging to achieve the correct blend of colors and shades with a single at-home dye kit, it’s recommended you visit a salon to create the proper highlighting effects.
Those with a natural brown base color can get an updated look without using bleach, while blondes will have no trouble adopting the sultry dark and red hairstyle.
Your natural hair will slightly affect the outcome of the final color when dying. For example, those with naturally dark hair can expect to receive violet-red glosses to help create the crimson tinge expected from this color.
How to Maintain Your Color at Home
To keep your color vibrant, colorists recommend a mix of red- and brunette-based color-depositing shampoo and conditioner. These products designed for color-treated hair, help nourish hair while allowing the color to last longer.
A good hydrating shampoo and conditioner and a hydrating mask should be part of your hair care routine to help prolong color.
You’ll also need regular root touch-ups to retain the natural shade variations in each strand. If you are not a natural brunette, you’ll need to visit the salon every 6 to 8 weeks. However, if you have naturally brown hair, you can extend the time between touch-ups to 10 to 12 weeks, depending on the rate of hair growth.
