Ah, cold brew coffee.

Personally, I think it's one of the greatest gifts to human kind ever invented. It keeps you cool during the hot months, you never have to worry about burning yourself with it, and you can drink it way faster.

Clearly, hairdressers agree with me, because they've turned the greatest drink on the planet into the nation's next stunning hair color trend.

Yes, that's right — fall's hottest hair color trend is cold brew.

In layman's terms, it's a very specific hue of mahogany brown.

And it's often laced with highlights.

As first reported by PopSugar, the term was coined by NYC-based colorist Kimberly Bonondona.

Though the brown base is rather specific, cold brew hair can be achieved in many ways.

Think about it like a literal glass of cold brew — the more cream, the lighter the color.

You know when you pour milk into cold brew and it creates that pretty swirl? This is that.

Maybe you like your cold brew black — cold brew hair can represent that, too.

Above all, the key to having cold brew hair versus regular old brown is the highlights.

Caramel tones are what make it actually look like a cup of coffee.

So get that toner ready for touchups.

Wow, is anyone else really thirsty now?

Wow, I've gotta go. My caffeine addiction is calling.

And I need to call my stylist.
