Sharing is caring!

Over the past few years, we’ve seen the resurgence of not one, not two, but dozens of nostalgic hair colors. It feels like the 90’s all over again and we couldn’t be more thrilled!

The latest to make a comeback? Cherry cola—yep, the enchanting deep brunette shade with reddish-burgundy undertones.

Drawing inspiration from the beloved soda, cherry cola hair continues to take TikTok–and really the entire beauty world–by storm. And that can only mean one thing: there’s no time like the present to get in on the trend!

From sparkling cherry colar to more elusive undertones of reddish-burgundy, read on for 40 ways to try cherry cola hair in 2024.
