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.

1. 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.

If you want to add something less natural but still classic to your hair like cherry blue and red, ultraviolet, then it is time you gave it a try. Next time you go to the salon, ask your colourist for something that would make your brunette hair more conspicuous to demand the attention it deserves. You will learn that unconventional brown is the way to go for any darker skin tones, since they can try the red and blue streaks. However, if you have pale skin, then you might consider pink and peach streaks. Whichever your skin pigmentation is, your professional stylist can always find something to spice up your brunette hair colour without messing up your innate beauty. Since extreme colour changes might fade really quickly, you can use some after-colour conditioner to maintain the touch for as long as you want. This colour is best for any event since the colours can match any environment if matched with the right attire.
