Cherry Coke Hair: The Viral Comeback of the Y2K Hair Color

The common stereotype about women and their hair color or haircut is that they want them done to kick-start a new phase in their lives.

While there might be some truth to that statement, there is nothing wrong with wanting to color your hair to introduce the world to a new you.

It’s a new look, after all!

But what hair color? Well, the most popular hair color of Y2K has made a comeback this year with the name cherry coke hair.

What exactly is that? How to get one yourself? And how do you care for your hair afterwards? I’m here to tell you all that today!

Cherry Coke Hair: What Exactly Is It?

If you want to make a statement with a new hair color, the cherry coke hair will surely get people to turn their heads.

And this hair color is inspired by the popular cherry-flavored soda drink that people know and love.

Also known as black cherry hair, this hair color actually has a brown base with color tones like red and violet. 

The best part?

It does not matter what skin tone you have, this hair color looks great on everyone. Even for all hair length and hair type!

And if you are looking for a perfect hair color to rock in the summer, this burgundy hue is going to make your beach debut sensational.

Guess what?

If you are worried about damaging your hair by bleaching your dark hair, don’t. It will take on your hair even without the bleach.

However, you would need to use bleach if you already have color-treated hair to lift the pre-existing color.

But you will love knowing the fact that you can easily dial up or down the red pigment if you want it to pop or just want a subtle look.

How to Get the Cherry Coke Hair on Your Own

You don’t necessarily need to visit your hair salon to get this done. Just follow these steps and you can do it yourself at home:

  • You need to get a brown and a red hair color before you start. But I recommend you also get Anveya’s semi-permanent hair colour in the shade Madrid Red.
  • Mix two parts of the brown color for every part of the ‘Madrid red’ you use. The ratio for brown and ‘Madrid red’ should be 2:1.
  • Test on a strand first before getting started so you can adjust your mixture. Apply your preferred blend to your dry hair. Bleach before if you need to.
  • Make sure your hair sections are completely saturated with the mixture and leave it like that for about 30 minutes.
  • Now wash it out and use a conditioner.

How to Care for Your Hair After Coloring

Any kind of red hair color usually fades really fast compared to other types of hair color. So you might have to care for your hair well to keep the pooing color on.

You would want to keep your new hair color as rich and for as long as possible. Plus, you need to also make sure your hair is healthy.

What to do?

Although it is best to wash the dyed hair as little as possible, you need to use the right shampoo for when you do.

So make sure you use a good formula for color-treated hair and use cool water when you’re washing your hair.


The Cherry Coke Hair is all the rage nowadays from celebrities to the most fashionable girl around you. So when you do get the color done, don’t forget to enjoy it while it lasts on your hair.
