31 Caramel Hair Colors That Are Just *Chef's Kiss*

We're not sure who needs to hear this, but it's time to open up a conversation about caramel hair colors. Brown-based hair colors often get a bad rap for being plain or boring, but this unique tone, which straddles the line between brown and blonde, is anything but. Caramel hair colors do typically skew more on the brown side, but the versatility here is simply unmatched.

Sure, blonde is fun, but the complexity of caramel colors makes them almost mesmerizing to look at, in the best way possible. They can range from light to dark brown, even encompassing a smattering of darker blonde hues, and are flexible enough to serve a wide range of skin tones and eye colors. Plus, there are endless highlight and lowlight options in between that can take almost any base color into caramel territory.

Long story short, caramel hair colors are some of the prettiest options out there. Don't believe us? We scoured the internet for the receipts. Ahead, check out 31 caramel hair colors that send our hearts into a fluttering fury, and be sure your screenshot your favorites to share with your colorist.
