Nicola Peltz is the latest celebrity to spice up her brunette locks with one of the hair world’s hottest new colours, the “pecan brownie” shade.

The actress first made the switch from blonde to brunette back in July 2022, and has kept her colour a cool-toned dark brown ever since, with long flowing locks and a centre parting becoming her signature hairstyle. The Welcome to Chippendales star also switched things up with a full fringe in August, before growing it out into curtain bangs over the last few months.

Now, Nicola, who is married to David and Victoria Beckham’s oldest son Brooklyn, has decided to switch things up again with her latest hair colour as she attended several fashion shows at Paris Fashion Week.

Nicola Peltz debuted a much warmer 'pecan brownie' hair colour

The "pecan brownie" colour was first seen on British actress Michelle Keegan last month, and it seems like more and more celebs are ditching the cooler-toned brunette in favour of something a little warmer.

Pecan brownie hair is typically a dark brunette base, with lighter, more buttery brunette highlights framing the face and towards the end of the hair. The lighter sections help lift the complexion and brighten up the face, as well as adding extra dimensions to the hair.

With warmer months on the horizon, now is usually the perfect time to try out a new look, with many people choosing to go lighter and warmer with their hair colour in the summer months.

For Michelle’s hair, colourist Calum Tierney used a Wella "Colour Contour" technique, which is a method of highlighting and lowlighting hair that first went viral in 2020. The technique adds depth and dimension to hair, and stops colours from looking flat and dull.

For Nicola Peltz, photos of her attending the Valentino runway presentation with husband Brooklyn showed her hair slicked back into sleek half up-half down ponytail, with the warm highlights clearly visible throughout her long locks.

Previously, Nicola's hair either had a red-hue to it, left, or was a much cooler toned brown right

In another series of photos from the MiuMiu show, Nicola holds her glossy ponytail out to the side, where it’s easy to see the different highlights and lowlights running throughout it. Previously, the actress’ hair was a much darker cool-toned shade of brown, with some red-toned hues to it.

With spring on its way, now is the perfect time to switch up your hair and try a lighter, brighter colour. Simple highlights can help brighten the overall appearance, or if you’re feeling bold, plenty of celebs are ditching their dark hair altogether and opting for a dramatic platinum makeover.
