"Tiramisu Hair" Proves That Letting Your Roots Show Is Trendy AF Right Now

Who doesn't love ordering tiramisu for the table? It doesn't get much better than ladyfingers soaked in espresso and layered with whipped cream and mascarpone. It's an effortless, people-pleasing dessert. 

The newest hair trend is paying homage to this crowd-favorite sweet. Not only does it sound delicious, but tiramisu hair is also one of the easiest hair-color trends to try right now, full stop. Tiramisu hair is a soft-rooted warm blonde," says Nikki Lee, a celebrity hairstylist. "It's a great way for a blonde to tone down without her feeling like she's getting rid of all of her blonde." Think natural roots, soft dimension, and warmer tones. This is not the icy blonde of yesteryear! 

If you want to try tiramisu hair for yourself, Lee says to ask your stylist for a natural-rooted blonde with some soft dimension and warm tones. "The upkeep is minimal because it's a rooted look. You can easily go a few months with just doing a gloss in between to freshen up the color," she says. "This is a great way to give your hair a break from highlights." Keep reading for some of our favorite takes on the trend, plus must-have maintenance products.
