Want to know how to take care of your brunette hair? Follow these simple hair color tips to keep your brunette locks looking healthy and gorgeous.
Are you blessed with brown locks and wondering how to bring out their natural luster? Brunette hair is anything but boring! There are many ways to switch up your look without becoming a blonde or redhead. I have curated a list of hair color tips for brunette hair to keep you looking gorgeous and chic.
Take your complexion into consideration
If you want to pick the right color for your brunette hair, I recommend paying attention to your complexion. Have you noticed that certain hair colors tend to suit you more than others? This has to do with your skin’s undertones. The same shade of brown can look different on someone with warm undertones as compared to people with cool or neutral undertones. If you have warm undertones, I recommend opting for warm, honey-golden shades. On the hand, if you have olive-toned skin, opt for cooler, ash-toned hair colors.
Add highlights or lowlights
If you are not ready to change your hair color completely, you can consider getting highlights or lowlights to enhance your natural hair color. They are an excellent way to add some depth and dimension to your brunette hair. You can either opt for traditional foils or the trending balayage. If you are not a fan of the blocky look that comes with foils, balayage is a better option because the colour is applied by hand. So, your hair color appears more natural. You can choose whether you want the streaks to be thick or thin, subtle or bold. If you are going for lowlights, I recommend choosing a shade that is one to two shades darker than your natural color. This will give your hair a healthy, glossy appearance and make it look thicker and fuller.
Use shades of chocolate as your reference point
From mocha brown to warm honey, you have endless hair color choices if you are a brunette. If you are overwhelmed by the options, I have an excellent fail-proof tip. When it comes to choosing the right shade or brown for your hair, you need to consider what tone you wish to see. While picking a shade, I recommend using chocolate as a point of reference. Think of dark chocolate if you want a cool tone and milk chocolate if you are leaning towards warmer shades of brown.
Opt for rich, multidimensional tones
The various colors and tones that brunette hair naturally has can be accentuated with the right color choices. Opt for rich, multi-tonal hues rather than bland, one-dimensional color. Your hair can get depth and texture by blending several tones of brown, copper, or red, giving it a luxurious and dynamic appearance. Your colorist can help you create a unique blend that enhances your features and compliments your style.
Protect your hair color
Once you have achieved your desired hair color, it is vital to protect and maintain it to get long-lasting results. Ditch your regular hair care products and opt for hair care products specifically designed for color-treated hair, as they contain ingredients that help preserve the color and prevent damage. Additionally, minimise exposure to chlorine and saltwater, as they can cause your color to fade faster. And don’t forget regular touch-ups to maintain your color’s vibrancy and keep your brunette hair looking healthy and fresh.
