Hair Color Now

Trend Of The Month

Milk Chocolate

Deliciously appealing, soft and sexy, milk chocolate color is the ultimate style move this season. Dive into this wondrous light-brown haircolor to warm up your coif during the chilly season. Whether a brown base is garnished with subtle golden highlights or styled into a trendy updo to perfectly catch the light, you’ll be glistening in this beautiful color.

1-14Hello your highness! Feel like the queen you are with this gravity-defining crown of twists. This regal coif was designed by Melanie from Given’s Hair Braiding in Concord, NC. Couture twists that begin as rich truffle roots and fade to a honey chestnut are installed throughout the entire head. The tresses are pulled up and to one side and swept into an intricate design.


A Coiled Crown allows you to dazzle with this halo of curls. On Natural tresses, you can craft a similar look with a twist set or small rod set. Be sure to prime damp mane with a setting lotion. Once hair is dry, release the set (or twists!) and lightly pick out the resulting texture. Maintain this mane by covering it at night with a silk bonnet and rejuvenating falling curls with a small curling iron.
Shine Bright with a flowing, golden mane styled by Marvin A. Carrington of Hairstyling by Joseph in New York, NY. Honey-blonde hues boast radiant shine as strands are smoothed from a side part into loose, sexy waves. Don’t you love?



Amber Stevens West may be known for her teen role as “Ashleigh Howard” of Freeform’s classic television series Greek. Among other projects, she’s since co-starred with Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill on the big screen’s 22 Jump Street and has fans taking notice of her comedic timing on NBC-TV’s The Carmichael Show. The talented actress is seen here rocking a luxurious milk chocolate mane featuring long, beachy waves that flow from an elegant center part. One of the star’s get-ready coif secrets: clip-ins are her go-to mane move when time is short!
