Sexy, rich - and naturally very addictive - chocolate brown hair is the ultimate brunette shade. The luxurious tone is also super-wearable, so it’s no wonder that everyone is craving chocolate hair right now. As well as being timeless, a chocolatey brown hair hue can soften your features, and bring warmth to your complexion. From deep chocolate to milky tones, this multi-dimensional option is a hit amongst many.

Time to OD on chocolate tone hair? Read on below for our pro hints and hacks.

How to Wear Chocolate

Chocolate brown hair is flattering on most skin tones, which is probably why it’s universally appealing. A good colourist can help you find the exact shade to suit you by tweaking it to complement your hair colour, eye colour and skin tone. Chocolate especially favours medium, olive and tan complexions or those with warm undertones.

Chocolate Brown Takeover

If you’re looking to max out with a luxurious look, a chocolate brown hair color is ideal. The depth of the shade can really bring out warm undertones in your skin and give your hair a shiny, vibrant finish. If you have darker roots, chocolate hair allows you to switch up your hair colour in a subtle but striking way. Are you a brunette who is partial to a little blonde? Regain your true colours by switching back to chocolate brown for healthier looking locks.

Chocolate Brown Accents

For a more understated look, opt for chocolate brown highlights or lowlights instead. Your stylist can strategically highlight your hair to add dimension and draw attention to certain features on your face. Plus, if your hair is naturally dark, it’s a pretty low maintenance colour technique to maintain.

TOP TIP: Using lighter chocolate brown highlights around the face will help to frame your face and add dimension.

Chocolate Hair Aftercare

To really maintain the richness of your chocolate hair, colour aftercare is key. Using hydrating products and treatments will keep hair looking shiny such as the L’Oréal Professionnel Vitamino Colour A-OX. This colour protecting product will maintain the chocolate rich tones and prevent your new delicious hair colour from fading.

Make your Chocolate Last Longer…

Using a mask regularly will help prolong the radiance of your chocolate brown colour. We recommend the L’Oréal Professionnel Vitamino Color Gel-Mask, which targets weakened and damaged areas of coloured hair and wraps each strand into a lightweight film to protect against everyday wear and tear.
