We’ve been hearing about the “expensive brunette” hair color trend for months. But this is one of the first times we’ve seen it in action on a star as big as Meghan Markle. And his Well. Markle’s hair color features the perfect natural dimension that brunettes crave this season. The blend is from SoCal colorist Kadi Lee who posted on Instagram calling it a “sunny golden brunette.”
Lee is known for her stellar balayage, color correction, color changes for movies, and organic hair color. Her celebrity clients include Julia Roberts, Diane Von Furstenberg and Danica Patrick, to name a few. Markle’s shade is taking the internet by storm as fans continue to comment on how gorgeous she looks. (We couldn’t agree more.) We got a glimpse of the luxury hue when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex celebrated Easter on the sidelines of the Invictus Games in the Netherlands on Saturday.
Markle’s hair has that shiny, subtle multi-dimensional look that brunettes want to die for. “An expensive brunette is a luxurious feel, focusing on dimension, shine and healthy hair,” hairstylist and Tangle Teezer ambassador Liam Curran previously said. STYLECASTER. “It gives the customer the ability to create a hair color that suits their needs.” He sees that customers now want a low-maintenance color that looks Dear. It’s not a question of price. So what exactly does expensive mean in this case? Well, it’s all about blending natural-looking colors.
“For years blondes have experimented with beautiful blends of highlights and now brunettes want the same experience,” he continued. “Blending many different shades and finishing with luxe toners not only injects beautiful color, but also adds beautiful shine.” What does this mean for the big chunks that Y2K fans love so much? Well, it’s all about the options and we have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot of more Markle-like mixes in the months to come.
