‘Louis Vuitton brown’ is the brunette hair we’ll all be begging our stylists for

Blondes may have more fun, but it’s the brunettes who are getting all the attention right now.

If you have been feeling like a bit of a hair update this spring, say hello to the hottest shade around.

Louis Vuitton brown is the name top London hairstylist, Tom Smith, has given to the glossy, brown, designer-looking hair colour that is trending at the moment, inspired, of course, by Louis Vuitton’s luxe desaturated, tonal colour palette.

“Now I hope I don’t get a letter from Louis Vuitton, but I’m gonna call this one Louis Vuitton brunette,” Smith explains.

“It’s a really expensive, luxurious, rich shade of brunette.

Similar to the Expensive Brunette shade that was trending last autumn, Louis Vuitton brunette is more about a distinct combination of tones, Smith says.

And even though we are coming into spring, the hairstylist reckons many of us will forego highlights and blonder shades for darker, warmer tones this season.

“This is about a really rich, caramel, amber tone,” he says, which is where LV comes in. Imagine the colour that the leather handles of your Louis Vuitton bag go when they’re well-loved and well-worn,” says Tom. And the condition is just as important. “It’s really shiny, really glossy, healthy hair.”

According to Glamour magazine, just like a well-worn, well-loved bag, the colour has an expensive but effortless vibe that pairs well with spring. Offering low-key glam with low-maintenance upkeep, the painted across hair balayage-style shades offer dimension.

The trend, Smith reveals, opts for brighter sections in warmer tones like caramel, bronze and amber which play beautifully against bronzed sunshine skin.
