Changing up our hair colour in favour of a lighter shade for the summer months is nothing new, so it’s no surprise that one of the latest viral hair trends is a variation of that exact phenomenon.
A video shared by Hollywood Hills salon Treehouse Studio has been viewed more than four million times after showcasing our new summery hair trend obsession: California brunette.
Just as spending a summer under the Southern California sun would subtly lighten your strands – something that’s more visible in blonde or lighter shades of brown hair – the look involves highlighting brunette hair for a sunkissed look. The result is a natural looking, perfectly dimensional mane.
And it appears that everybody is as obsessed with this colour palette as we are, as hundreds of TikTokers took to the comments section of the video to praise the trend.

“This is EXACTLY what I’ve been wanting,” one user wrote, as another excitedly added, “I’m screaming I love it so much!!!!!”
Meanwhile a third chimed in with, “This is one of the prettiest hair colours I’ve seen” while a fourth fan added, “I could be a brunette with this hair”.
If, like many a TikToker, you want to bag this look for the summer, Zoë Irwin, one of the industry’s top colourists and Wella Professionals’ UK ColourTrend Expert, says you should ask your hairdresser for a combination of face-framing highlights and balayage to achieve this look.
“As we approach the summer months, I find my clients like to embrace a slightly lighter hair colour, emulating that sun kissed look,” she tells us.
“What is great about the California brunette look is that the technique allows the stylist to paint the highlights onto the hair, creating a bespoke look for each individual, contouring around the face. I think the key to this look is about creating that fresh, healthy shine to the hair.
“Wella Professionals' new Shinefinity glazing service is great for achieving this healthy-looking shine to pre-lightened hair, whilst also toning for that sun kissed glow,” she adds.
