In our dreamiest of dreams, we'd be swimming perpetually in a pool of caramel, while downing caramel macchiatos, while admiring our caramel-glazed hair and skin. But, alas, all of the above is impossible-nay, ridiculous-so we're left to appease our sweet tooth where we can: with creamy, caramel-brown hair.

And lest you think this is just another word for "blonde" or "brown" or "bronde," then you haven't seen true caramel hair, which looks so insanely warm and buttery, it's practically melting down these celebs' backs. And to help you fall in love with the style like we are, we've rounded up our favorite looks, ahead.

1 Beyoncé


We've already established that Yoncé's hair has a legit mind of its own, and in one of her rare, in-the-wild photos, her golden caramel waves literally glow from within.

2 Brigette Lundy-Paine


You can go full-caramel color, or you can take a cue from Lundy-Paine and dye just the lower lengths of your hair in a caramel ombré.

3 Gigi Hadid


Hadid's single-process color is basically the very definition of melted caramel, giving it a super-natural feel.

4 Ciara


Darker almond roots with graduated caramel highlights keeps Ciara's waves from feeling too thick or heavy.

5 Rosie Huntington-Whiteley


Start with a caramel base, like Huntington-Whiteley's, then add in buttery blonde highlights and rose-gold lowlights for added dimension.

6 Rita Ora


What do you get when you mix every shade of caramel and blonde into one highlighted look? Ora's piece-y waves.
