6 Gorgeous Brunette Colours

If you love your dark locks but feeling a little flat, here is some inspiration to take you from boring brown to ICONIC BRUNETTE

Iconic Brunette’s are never boring, they are sultry rich and engaging. And for the most head-turning brunette, it’s all about enhancing and not going too extreme! When refreshing your brunette locks, opt for shades within two above or below your natural color. You could go lighter, you could go darker it’s all up to you! Either way, as the colour experts we can help you decide what is going to work best for you in terms of your colouring and features.


Sandy Brown

Sandy brown is for those who want to stay brunette but go lighter. This look is perfect to soften angular features and generally yields a more golden tone therefore suiting warmer skin tones. Think Balayage, where the roots are darker and ends lighter. To give the colour an overall lighten, a Balayage Melt is ideal which mean the entire colour is lifted from the roots and gradually lighter towards the ends rather than a traditional Balayage.


This colour is ideal for paler tones. This deep, almost cranberry-brown hue couldn’t be more flattering. Auburn is a really fun colour and looks amazing on Drew Barrymore.

Caramel Brown

Caramel Brown is crafted with a light brown base with add highlights around the face out to the ends, gradually getting lighter toward the tips of the layers. This is ideal for warmer skin tones as caramel can drown out those with paler skin. 

Ash Brown

Ash brown is universally flattering and very chic. Ash brown is what happens when brown hair and silver highlights love each other very much. What makes this look so versatile is the ability to tone the ash highlights custom to each person. Tones of purple or pink ash look wonderful of those with darker complexions, while a more washed out white blonde ash suits those with paler skin.

Cool Brown

This colour has an grey tone to it and ideal for those with lighter skin

types including pink or peach. This colour is ideal if you love wearing silver


tone jewellery and also wonderful if you have a few grey hairs you want to hide/cover up.


Very dramatic and bold, think Kendall Jenner or Megan Fox. What’s great about this tone is that it suits both lighter and darker shades of skin. Kendall has olive undertones while Megan is quite pink yet both look like bombshells with Black Brown hair. This is quite a dramatic look so start the

process using a lighter shade and gradually go darker or to go this colour in one sitting ask us about using a fill colour as a base in order to avoid fading
