With so many beauty trends being highlighted and spotted on Instagram or some

hair blog

, it becomes hard to keep track of how the trend originated. Summer’s always been about dewy makeup, flushed skin, and light-hued hair, amirite? But when an Instagram post talks, everyone listens up and takes note. And it seems that brown hair is having a moment in the spotlight.

Hairstylists, media publications and influencers all over IG, are calling this summer’s hair colour trend, Chocolate Cake! Much like a typical gooey, chocolate-filled cake with hints of caramel glazed over, this hair trend seems to be staying—and making people hella‘ hungry. So, ditch those highlights and forget about going lighter and blonder for the summer, your go-to is the newest shade in the brown family!

If you’re confused about whether this colour would suit you, let me just tell you that brown and brunette-like colours go well with Indian skin tones. Chocolate Cake has just the right amount of deep and vibrant tones to really emphasise one’s face and add brightness with subtle balayage-like highlights.
