Cinnamon Swirl (#27/30) is a creamy, punchy and spicy remix of your natural red shade. This sanguine type of hair draws attention naturally, on its own, without the need for sophisticated hairstyles. Let’s find out more about this incredible shade.
1. Cinnamon Swirl Hair Extensions: It's Getting Hot In Here!
Lots of tinkering and experimenting in our lab brought Cinnamon Swirl to life. We designed this shade thinking of spicy gingers that live life to the fullest and enjoy sinking their teeth in being way above the average redhead. Then we took our shades “Light Auburn” and “Strawberry Blonde” et voila… Magic happened! Think of this shade as the rebellious little sister of redheads.

3. Cinnamon Swirl: Celebrity Color Match
Vivacious, peppy, romantic and adventurous: red is the color for people that reject labels, break the mould and naturally stand out. Rebels, but also erudite and romantic souls embrace the redhead style with class and glamour by wearing their hair in the color Cinnamon Swirl. A few examples? Think of actors Blake Lively and Bella Thorne.
4. Cinnamon Swirl Hair Extensions: The Perfect Hairstyles
There are many ways that you can wear your hair extensions in, and ginger shades in general do work really well with braided hairstyles and waves, for example. Let’s see three hairstyles that will bring Cinnamon Swirl to life like no one else!
This glamorous hairstyle sees your hair crimped in glossy, soft waves. It’s a beautiful, timeless classic that has been trending in Hollywood and the celebrity showbiz for a long time - hence the name! With this bright, vivid shade of red, Hollywood waves will stand out and give a diva effect that is going to be hard to forget.
Perfect for: square face shape, oval face shape
Mermaid waves are the perfect look for when you want to appear effortlessly put together; it’s a playful, flirty, yet classy hairstyle that keeps on giving (even when summer is over)! Perfect for a day out brunching with the girls, or a dancing night full of shenanigans. You can either bring your natural mermaid curls to life with a sea-salt spray for some serious texture, or play around with a hair waver.
Perfect for: diamond face shape, heart face shape, oval face shape
The fishtail braid resembles a French braid in its smoothly woven appearance – however, it only divides the hair in two sections instead of three. It can be incorporated in any of the styles above (think fishtail pigtails, fishtail crown braid, fishtail messy bun…) and it’s been a timeless classic since ancient Greece. A deliciously crafted fishtail braid on a redhead gives a unique sense of authenticity with a warming, rustic and boho-chic vibe.
Perfect for: oval face shape, round face shape
5. Cinnamon Swirl Hair Color: Trends
Red hair has its own, unique energy - you cannot simply just dye your hair orange. Being a redhead is more than that, it’s a true lifestyle and there are different aesthetics that you can try and embrace as a redhead. When it comes to trends, it’s hard to know if they’re going to work out well on our hair, especially if we recently changed our hair color, length and/or style. Luckily, there’s quite a few recent trends that will work wonders on bright red locks.
Money Piece Hair
Are you into chunky highlights? Then you will love this trend, coming back to us from the 90s queen, Geri Halliwell from Spice Girls. Geri has red hair, and bold face-framing highlights made the look quite iconic (so much that people are still wearing it thirty years later).
I’m picturing: pale yellow and turquoise butterfly clips, in lovely contrast with the copper tone of your new hair. Think of them as a cute accessory for your half-up, half-down hairstyle - perhaps with the addition of a few crimped strands.
Big, 70s fluffy blowouts have been all the rage lately, and one of the biggest influences on #hairtok is, in fact, sporting gorgeous red locks. Is there anything else to add? Grab your round brush and blow-dryer: we're travelling back in time!
Merry Christmas to those! Catch me at the cheermeister♬ Martha May The Grinch - Sheyliee
6. Cinnamon Swirl Hair Extensions: Who Can Wear It?
This is always the one million dollars question: technically, the answer I would love to always give is “everyone can wear whatever they want”. Which is true, to an extent.
But some shades work better with certain undertones, and Cinnamon Swirl is no exception to this rule. Its luminosity seems to be working best with warm and neutral skin tones, whilst, unfortunately, people with cool undertones will not get the best results.
Creamy, spicy and textured - Cinnamon Swirl exceeds any expectation and by adding volume and length it will bring your red tresses to a whole new level of sass. What are you waiting for? Shop the shade now from our range.
