In case you needed reminding, summer is finally on the horizon – which, by standard beauty terms, would usually signal the return of colourful nail art, pastel make-up references and sun-kissed skin, along with a sea of lighter, brighter hair trends.

But not according to Emma Stone who broke summer beauty tradition at the star-studded 'Kinds Of Kindness' premiere at the Museum Of Modern Art last night, eschewing her auburn lengths in favour of a darker shade of brunette.

Coined by her hairstylist Mara Roszak as 'vamp goddess', Stone's hairstyle featured her darkest hue to date, with a sleek middle parting tucked behind her hair and a shiny, glass-like finish.

Her hairstyle wasn’t the only standout feature of the night. The actor stunned in a Louis Vuitton floor-length black dress with sheer, netted detailing on the skirt, which was created by Nicolas Ghesquière for the cruise 2025 collection, and paired with a cat eye winged liner and glossy lip.

Stone isn't the only one declaring darker brunette as the most covetable colour of the season. Richer shades of chocolate brown, mocha and taupe have proven to be the unexpected beauty turn for summer 2024. Everyone from Kaia Gerber to Emma Chamberlain and Hailey Bieber have been going against the beauty grain and, as a result, we've welcomed in more brunette beauty trends than ever before – think 'clean girl brunette', liquid brunette and Stone's latest 'dark espresso' shade, which features dark, burnt and chocolate-y tones.

As for how to maintain the colour of the summer when the temperatures soar? 'If you find yourself fighting against brassy tones, a blue shampoo or pigmented toning conditioner can help to keep this neutral tone,' shares hair expert and trend forecaster Tom Smith. 'Focus on haircare that offers shine and silkiness to keep this brunette shade looking cared for and healthy throughout peak-summer.'
