Biscoff Hair Is The Delicious New Trend You Need To Get On Board With
With everything seeming a little bleak at the moment, there's no better time to practice some self love and spruce up your hair game.
And if you're unsure what colour to go, then may we gently suggest taking some inspiration from your favourite coffee accompaniment? Yep, we are, of course, talking about Biscoff.
The humble Lotus Biscoff biscuit has been a staple for many people for years and years, be it with their magazine in the hairdressers or in brand-spanking new iced cream form.
But it turns out the very same caramel brown tones also make for a gorgeous warm hair colour. And what better way to pay tribute to the tasty little snack?!
Speaking to Tyla, A-list hair expert Lisa Shepherd - who recently launched her brand new Hair Boss range with Superdrug - said that she'd noticed an increase in women opting for this warmer colouring lately.
She told us: "We have been seeing this movement towards warmer locks with golds, caramels and amber tones, for a while now. It's such a refreshing change for blondies to be opting for a new hue, and it is actually super flattering to most skin types, especially on dull, dreary days.
"Whilst this mix of tones gives a healthy, shiny finish that looks expensive, it actually has a pretty low upkeep once it's achieved."
So, how do you go about achieving Biscoff inspired hair for yourself?
Lisa explains that this all depends on whether you want all-over colour, or something a little more 'textured' - such as 'tinting' and adding colour above or below a balayage base.
"Ultimately the choice is yours, but if you want the more multi-tonal or layered colour, then seeing a professional is the best option, as they will break up the finish with a touch of freehand colour or balayage painted throughout to add dimension and interest," she says.

However, if you're going for that all-over colour, "the simplest way to achieve the look at home would be to choose an all over honey or caramel shade."
Of course, it's important to tailor your look depending if you have light or darker hair, too. Lisa advises that the best approach for fair hair is to "add warmth into your balayage."
"Instead of using cool, high blonde tones, it is best to keep them warm and low by applying glosses and glazes which are amazing for adding shine," she says. "It's all about creating what professionals call a 'negative space', which is a darker warmer shade behind each highlight, to draw out the contrasting tones in a natural way," she says.
Meanwhile, those with darker hair should look to people like Kylie Jenner for inspiration.
"Kylie Jenner is a great example of how you can achieve this colour with darker hair," she explains, "as she has gone for a more bronze tone all over, which has then been broken up with amber and honey surface highlights."
"Alternatively you can flip this approach and go light all over to begin with, and simply add a caramel wash all over to achieve a more subdued tone."
As for making the colour last, Lisa adds that caramel tones are relatively easy when it comes to upkeep. But if you want to keep the Biscoffy goodness for as long as possible, she suggests her brand The Hair Boss' Double Mask (£19.99, from Superdrug).
"It contains strengthening keratin which repairs the hair structure from the inside out, followed by a hyaluronic acid moisture mask to rehydrate and condition," she says. "The result is instantaneously detangled healthy hair, complete with with softness and shine."
