Who would like cappuccino hair color?

Cappuccino is a color with a wide palette of shades.

When choosing a "coffee" hair dye, colorists recommend considering several factors. Eye color and skin tone (light, dark, golden, or with pink undertones) matter, but hair length and styling play secondary roles.

Cappuccino hair color for brown eyes

Brown eyes get carte blanche! They can take a shade with any concentration of "milk" - so you need to start off, rather, from skin tone.

Girls with golden skin are advised milk cappuccino.

Fair-skinned people have two favorites: a frosty cappuccino and a dark one. But for swarthy and tanned faces, coffee shades “with the addition of cinnamon.”

Cappuccino hair color for green eyes

Green-eyed people have two most advantageous options for dyeing their hair in a coffee shade: classic cappuccino color and caramel.

By the way, in the second case, complex coloring using the balayazh or air-touch technique will give a very beautiful result - especially in combination with a light tan.

Popular cappuccino shades for hair coloring: examples with photos

Cappuccino hair color is quite multifaceted, as evidenced by the photo below. But how to find your tone among the variety of colors presented in online and offline stores? We propose to consider eight successful, in our opinion, varieties of this shade.

Shade of cappuccino with milk

If you dye your fashionable cream-colored hair using the balayage technique with the addition of classic light ash dye, you will get the same color of cappuccino with milk, or milk cappuccino, as it is often called.

Colorists recommend it for girls with fair or golden skin and hazel-green eyes. For them, this will be the most advantageous option on the coffee spectrum.

Frosty Cappuccino

First of all, this shade is different in that a shimmering mother-of-pearl finish remains on the hair, as if pearl powder was applied to the strands.

Colorists recommend regularly refreshing the color (or tinting the hair) to keep spectacular overflows longer.

Cold cappuccino

Cold cappuccino is a shade that, in all respects, will advantageously emphasize the appearance of girls of the “winter” color type (light skin tone plus bright eye color).

Ash cappuccino

Ash cappuccino is a hair color that attracts with noble restraint. Owners of brown eyes and golden skin should choose it.

Cappuccino Caramel

If we were to rank the sweetest shades, then a color like caramel cappuccino would take one of the top lines.

In terms of functionality, it is close to the colors of the honey spectrum - it also softens facial features and makes the appearance more pretty. But this is not its only plus. Colorists recommend caramel cappuccino hair color to those who are dissatisfied with the quality of their curls: warm shades hide the structural imperfections of the strands.


Light cappuccino is a shade that can be called the borderline between classic blond and light brown hair. If you have gray or blue eyes, take it without hesitation.


Jessica Alba often chooses this shade.

Dark cappuccino hair dye is the key to a spectacular look for girls with brown eyes and dark skin.

We recommend following the actress's footsteps to use a dark cappuccino with complex ombre staining.

With cinnamon

If above we often talked about the color of cappuccino with a gray undertone, then we will dedicate this paragraph to its complete opposite. Cinnamon cappuccino has brown pigments in its DNA.

To get the desired result, colorists recommend mixing two shades: cream and dark golden - to imitate cinnamon, which is sprinkled on coffee foam.

Popular cappuccino hair colors

The color of cappuccino, as we have already found out, is not the most common, so we decided to make your search easier and compiled a selection of current options presented today on the beauty market, to your taste.

L'Oréal Paris Casting Crème Gloss (Cappuccino Caramel shade)

Casting Crème Gloss Caramel Cappuccino is bright and radiant. This effect on the hair allows you to achieve a successful combination of warm pigments and components that give shine to curls.

Another important point is the absence of ammonia in the composition.

Garnier Color Naturals (Cappuccino shade)

Imagine the color of cappuccino that you get if you carefully mix the milk foam with the main part of the drink. Apparently, this is the shade that the creators of the Garnier Color Naturals dye sought.The post-color balm formula is enriched with hair-friendly shea, avocado and olive oils.

L'Oréal Paris Préférence (Copenhagen shade)

We suggest stopping the search for a shade of light cappuccino on this option. By coloring your hair with Préférence, you not only change the color of your hair, but also provide it with softness, smoothness and shine. This is a serious argument in favor of such a choice.

How to get cappuccino hair color: dyeing

  1. Once you have decided on the shade you want to get, it is important to understand whether you will need to pre-bleach your hair. This stage will not be able to miss the owners of red or very dark hair. But the procedure can be carried out without problems at home - with the help of paint with a bleaching function. The main thing is to start testing the dye for possible allergic reactions.This is done 48 hours before the procedure on a small area of skin, for example, behind the ear (for more information on how best to do this, see the instructions for the paint).

  2. Then, when you understand that the coloring composition does not cause unwanted reactions, you can proceed to the procedure. Spread the paint in a row along the entire length of the hair, trying to do it quickly enough. This is important for obtaining a uniform color as a result of dyeing.

  3. Wait the time indicated in the instructions, and wash off the paint with or without a special shampoo, as indicated in the instructions. If a caring conditioner or balm comes with the dye, be sure to use them. As a rule, they neutralize the chemical reaction and close the scales of the hair cuticle, which open during the dyeing process, which means that the balm will help to “seal” the pigment inside and smooth the hair shaft.
