5 Top Trends for Dark Brown Hair in 2023

Copper hair had a major trending moment in 2022 (we see you, Kendall Jenner and Tessa Thompson), but now we’re moving towards something a bit more classic. 2023 is all about dark brown hair. If you’re a deep brunette, prepare for your it-girl moment this year. And to help you get there, we have the top five trends for dark brown hair in 2023. Follow any of these trends, and you’ll feel chic and beautiful all year long.

    If you have dark brown hair, you might be tempted to shake things up in 2023 by switching it up to a cherry cola shade. As the name implies, cherry cola maintains the deep chocolate brunette shade but has a tinge of dark red to it. Get some darker red highlights woven into your hair, and your hair will sparkle anytime it hits the sun. We recommend trying this out before your first big vacation of 2023 so your pictures have some extra spice. 

    2. Wispy Bangs

    Curtain bangs brought back fringe in a whole new way in 2022, and now bangs are here to stay. If you’ve never experimented with adding bangs to your look, now’s the time to try. Wispy bangs are predicted to be the hottest trend, and they’re perfect because they work with all face shapes. These bangs have long pieces that frame your face and shorter ones in the middle. They’re light and playful, plus they’re easy to care for and style.

    Use Prose hair oil to protect those strands of dark brown hair in place, and you’ll be perfectly styled and ready to take on the next 12 months (with regular trims of course!)

    Move over, “wolf cut,” you’re so 2022. In 2023, we’re all about the octopus haircut. The style has all the layers and volume focused on the top, with some layered longer hair pieces that go to or past your shoulders. It’s a versatile haircut that works for both medium and long hair lengths. We love it for 2023 because it’s like an evolution of the wolf cut — just as shaggy but with a lot less upkeep. The octopus haircut looks great for those with dark brown hair and an edgy style. 

    4. Pixie Haircut

    What do Florence Pugh, Charlize Theron, and Halsey have in common? Other than all being stunning women, they love rocking pixie haircuts. And 2023 will be the year that short hair has its moment, with the pixie taking over everywhere you go. 

    A pixie haircut can be both edgy and elegant. If you pair it with minimal makeup, you end up with a gentle Tinkerbell look (see Alyssa Milano in season six of Charmed). Or put on a leather jacket and some dark eyeshadow and you have a pixie that’s just the right amount of femme fatale (think Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman). 

    The best part of the pixie cut is its easy upkeep. If your hair feels damaged, a pixie cut might be a good refresh. Cut that hair off and focus on growing it healthier than ever with healing products like the Prose hair mask that’s custom-formulated to your specific hair needs. 

    5. Brown Sugar Espresso Hair Color

    The Starbucks Iced Brown Sugar Oat Milk Shaken Espresso drink has quickly become a favorite jumpstart-your-day drink for just about everyone. No surprise, then, that one trend popping up for 2023 is that of-the-moment drink inspiring the next big hair color. Picture your dark brown hair with beautiful wisps of cool blonde highlights peeking through. The brown sugar espresso hair color is a bit of a darker version of the iced caramel hair color that’s been popular for a while, giving us all a fun twist on an already popular look.

    2023 Is the Year for Custom Haircare
