Brunettes Take Note: "Toasted Coconut" Hair Is the New Way to Lighten Your Locks

Ever heard of the Sunday Scaries? If Sunday is the day we look with trepidation toward a long, busy workweek, then August is its seasonal equivalent. It's the end of sun-drenched days and the beginning of colder fall weather. That, our friends, is why we refer to it as the August Awfuls. But just because the seasons are changing doesn't mean we have to let go of all summery things. Highlighter will keep us glowing and highlighted hair will keep us looking sun-kissed. 

As for the latter, we just need to update our look to be seasonally appropriate. Instead of the bright, golden blonde balayage we've been seeing all summer, we're thinking of switching it up to something a little smokier. That's where Instagram's newest hair color trend comes in. According to Allure, the buzziest way to go blonde is by dyeing your hair a shade of "toasted coconut." Yes, that name makes us feel immediately hungry. No, it doesn't involve putting actual coconut in your hair. Keep scrolling to see "toasted coconut" hair.

Now please excuse us while we book a salon appointment. In the meantime, be sure to check out the $8 drugstore dry shampoo that we're officially naming the best in the world.
