Every now and then, a new hair colour or styling trend that piques our interest so much it makes us go craving. But there is nothing like this new one: cinnamon swirl. You heard that right – the cinnamon swirl hair trend is taking over the hair and beauty industry by storm. The innovative hair colour was introduced by Ryan Pearl, a hairstylist in New York’s Cutler Salon. The reference to food isn’t something new; Ryan also coined a hair trend that previously emerged, chocolate chip hair.
Cinnamon swirl hair trend is creating so much buzz, though, especially with the rise in popularity of bronde hair. This is a new twist to this hair colour that provided a non-blended mix of both light and dark shades into the hair.
According to Ryan, his penchant for using food as reference to the hair colour techniques he innovates is meant to make it more relatable. It is difficult for regular women to identify the difference between warm and cool hair hues. But with its reference to food, there is more clarity to what the hues represent. And we couldn’t help but take a bite into it!
The most distinctive characteristic of this hair colour is the warm blend of honey, nutmeg and cinnamon tones. Therefore, you get a multi-dimensional shade that blends in beautifully rather than having one colour with multiple streaks. The cinnamon swirls are achieved by using a hair painting and foil technique. This creates a multi-dimensional look rather than looking too blended.
The best part? This hair colour is easy to maintain. If your natural hair colour is already of the same base colour as this particular hue, then you can simply let it grow out – no need to regularly touch-up your roots.
