A popular trend in Japan and Korea is to combine an all-over milk tea brown colour with hidden baby pink highlights in the inner layer of the hair at the ends.

The creamy blonde-brown milk tea colour and warm pink complement each other perfectly and creates a gorgeous feminine look. While full-on pink hair is a little daunting and difficult to pull off, the pink underlights peek through discreetly, making it a lot more wearable. Plus, this means that only small sections of your hair will need to be bleached.

Tip: Braid your hair to let the baby pink highlights stand out!

#2 Linen beige hair colour

A warmer and softer version of ash-tone hair, this gorgeous hair colour is reminiscent of natural linen which has a comforting greyish beige hue. This unearthly angelcore aesthetic is something to consider if you want a more unusual look that's still suitable for the office.

While this linen beige colour will suit most skin tones, it will look best when excessive redness in the complexion is covered.

#3 Rose brown hair colour

This caramel brown colour has a hint of pinkish red at the bottom half which adds an interesting yet subtle twist to the traditional brown or red hair. The best thing about this hair colour is that it's flattering on Asian skin tones and won't make the complexion look sallow or washed out.

While this hair colour looks great indoors, it will be in its full glory under the sun with a warm, rosy look. This colour may require a bit of bleaching!

You're probably familiar with the silver grey hair colour popular amongst Korean celebrities. Well, this fog grey milk tea colour is a more subtle version that's easier to style for everyday wear.

It is a milk tea brown with a fog-like colour - warm grey with a pearly undertone. This is a timeless look that suitable for all skin tones from fair to deep as well as Asian skin with yellow undertones. Black hair will need to be bleached to achieve this hair colour, but the aesthetic is totally worth it in our book.

This is a timeless look that perfect for anyone who wants light hair but without the maintenance. The base is a dark brown and added on are blonde babylights, an ultra -delicate version of traditional highlights that creates a seamless and and natural effect. The bits of blonde give the hair a bright, three dimensional look with minimal bleaching which is good news for the hair.

Adding these blonde babylights in an ombre effect gives it an even softer and more wearable look.
