The Glazed Donut Trend Is Coming for Your Hair

Never in a million years did we think glazed donuts would inspire top beauty trends, but here we are. What started as glazed donut skin quickly became a hot nail color trend with glazed donut nails. And now, glazed donut hair is poised to take off.

As with the other glazed donut trends made popular by Hailey Bieber, glazed donut hair is all about adding shine back into your strands. Think liquid hair, only this latest glossy hair trend will restore vibrancy, neutralize color, and repair damage. Mane Addicts tapped L’Oréal Professionnel Global Ambassador Min Kim to get all the details on the glazed donut hair trend—keep scrolling to find out more!

About the Expert

Min Kim is a L’Oréal Professionnel Global Ambassador and celebrity hair colorist at Butterfly Studio Salon in New York City.

Glazed Donut Hair 101

With this hair trend, it’s all about the shine. More than that, it’s also about improving the health of your hair. So not only does your hair look shiny and healthy, it actually is shiny and healthy. Kim shares that the trend starts “with a gloss, then warm tones or highlights are added in, and it’s followed up with a hydrating oil at home.” She recommends the L’Oréal Professionnel Absolut Repair Oil, “which is moisturizing, reparative, and lightweight.”

How to Get Glazed Donut Hair

What to Ask for at the Salon

Kim stresses the importance of booking a consultation before actually getting the service. Photos are always helpful to bring so do some research. Ultimately, Kim shares that you’ll “ask for hi-shine hair with dimension, warmth, and/or highlights through the lengths and ends” to get glazed donut hair.

More specifically, the treatment is known as a French gloss, which is “a two-step service that is complemented by the L’Oréal Professionnel Metal Detox Pre-Treatment,” notes Kim. “Metal Detox helps to prevent breakage and dullness (high shine) by removing minerals and metals found in hair. The next component is the color service, whether it be all-over or after a highlight service, followed by the French gloss. This is all about intense shine and creating the perfect canvas to reflect tons of light all while resurfacing the hair to make it extra shiny and healthy.” You can find a L’Oréal Professional salon nearest you here to book a French gloss.

What to Do at Home

At-home glazed donut hair is more about maintaining the in-salon service rather than achieving it yourself. Because there are so many components to getting this trend right, it’s best to put your hair in the hands of a professional, otherwise, you run the risk of damaging your strands. Kim suggests you complement the “treatment service at home to maintain the shine, tone, and moisture results from the salon service.” To do this, she recommends using the L’Oéal Professionnel Metal Detox Shampoo and Mask, along with the L’Oréal Professionnel Absolut Repair Oil to “add more lightweight moisture and shine.”
