The milk tea craze is definitely not over yet. It’s now crossed over to the hair territory. Say hello to milk tea hair.
The Japanese and Singaporean were the first to popularize this style in as early as 2019. But it’s enjoying a resurgence this year. And I honestly can’t blame anyone that’s into it because the style is just super chic and cute!
What color is milk tea hair?
Since it’s inspired by milk tea, there isn’t really just one color for this style. It’s a mixture of different shades of brown and blonde. It also has a combination of cool and warm undertones. It’s the perfect color between brown and blonde – exactly what a shaken milk tea’s color looks like.
There are also variations to how the color is applied on the hair for this style. You can go full-on with the color, try ombre or opt for highlights.
Does milk tea hair color need bleaching?
If you have dark hair, you’re going to have to bleach it first so the colors appear vividly. Stylists suggest achieving level 8 or 9 for a warm blond canvas. The color, which has ash and gold tones, is then applied once the hair is properly bleached. To avoid making the hair dry, a treatment after the coloring is advised.
The best way to achieve this look is, of course, to go to your trusted salon. If you want to see if you can get the style yourself, you can definitely trying the DIY route too.
Just make sure you take the proper precautions when it comes to bleaching your hair and that you choose a hair dye that gives off the right effect. Here are some options you may want to consider.
Is milk tea hair hard to maintain?
Once you have your preferred color down pat, the next thing to think about is keeping it in tip-top shape. Milk tea hair is pretty easy to maintain but putting in a little effort can help you rock your look for longer.
Use a toner or a toning shampoo to keep your locks from looking brassy. Alternatively, you can head to the salon for a toning treatment.
Make sure you also moisturize your hair to keep it from being dry and brittle. There are lots of at-home treatments available now!
You may also want to go for a touch-up six months after you had your hair colored so it looks fresh and polished.
