One of this month’s biggest hair trends is having red hair somewhere in between Geri Halliwell‘s circa her days as Ginger Spice and strawberry blond. The latest hue on everyone’s mind is “cherry blond.” If the term seems counterintuitive, that’s because it is, and we asked hair colorist Stephanie Diaz to break down the trend for us.
“The concept of ‘cherry’ is a deeper, pinker red,” Diaz said. “[Cherry blond hair] would be a blend — equal parts red to blond.”
The truth is that there are many versions of cherry blond hair. The key to the look, according to Diaz, is having a rich red shade diluted in different ways that exposes the blond. Ahead, check out our picks for the prettiest photos of cherry blond hair.
