Winter may be on the way out, but a sleek off-black hair color never goes out of season.
It’s easy to think going blonde is the move for warmer temperatures. Nectar blonde and expensive blonde looks have been taking over Instagram, plus Gigi Hadid and Florence Pugh just went back to the popular shade.
There’s nothing like being the trendsetter, though, and off-black hair will be the sleeper hit of this spring. A full black hair dye can be a dramatic change to make, but for those looking to try a cool brunette tone that can look close to black, off-black hair dye is an excellent choice.
“While very dark, this hair color is actually the darkest shade of brown with a very cool, ashy undertone, giving the appearance of black to the untrained eye,” says Tom Smith, celebrity hair colorist and creative director at Australian haircare brand evo. “This stops the shade looking too harsh or draining, but retains the striking, inky appearance of the hair. Off-black is a current celebrity favorite, recently seen on Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, Olivia Rodrigo, Megan Fox, and Maya Jama.”
Off-black is a great way for brunettes to try out a darker color, even if jet black isn’t their favorite. To achieve this color for your hair, ask your stylist for the darkest shade of brown with a cool ash tone.
This style achieves the look of a dramatic dye, but it won’t take arduous trips to the salon to maintain. Smith says this shade can be maintained perfectly with the evo fabuloso colour boosting treatment in the shade of cool brown.
Don’t forget to consider the hair cut possibilities with this dye. The refresh doesn’t have to stop at color. A boy bob could give the new color a natural feel, or try the blowout bob for a ’90s throwback.
