There's not a day that goes by that our Instagram feeds aren't flooded with hair-color inspiration, much of them being food-related, and thanks to the social sharing app, we've been introduced to myriad scrumptious, if you will, shades over the last few months alone. "Cream Soda," "Cider and Spice," and "Vanilla Milkshake" hair, for instance, are just three of many appetite-inducing shades that have made it onto our radar. And now, my friends, it looks like we're moving on over to hair colors inspired by alcoholic beverages.
Introducing "mulled wine hair," a new trend that Popsugar first brought to our attention, and lo and behold, it appears it is indeed making its way around the 'gram. Similar to the cozy seasonal beverage, "mulled wine hair" is characterized by a deep red, almost purple hue with touches of orange and/or chocolate-brown throughout. And let me tell you: It's just as pretty as the drink is delicious.
New York City–based colorist, Rachel Bodt, says she loves the idea of mulled wine hair because it has all the different tones of reds, including blue, violet, and true red, too. "It looks super dimensional, youthful, and is a way more modern way to pull off a deep, red color," she explains. What's more, you can definitely customize it to suit your skin tone — a brighter berry tone flatters fairer people, while a dark merlot looks great on tan and deep complexions.
Needless to say, it's another hue to add to your list of inspiration for your next appointment. In the meantime, check out some of the most swoon-worthy examples we could find, below.
