Brown hair can get a bad rap. People colour their hair from brown to copper, dirty blonde and other shades as they’re concerned it looks dull and boring. However, brown hair is actually one of the most versatile hair colours out there. In this blog post we share ways that you can go about giving your brown hair a new lease of life, while staying true to your brown hue.
A great way to give your brown hair a new lease of life is by adding dimensions. This is easy with balayage. It’s a really popular hair colour trend and looks great on brunettes. Our hair colourists in Huntingdon will keep your gorgeous brown on top and then just lighten the ends. This means there are no harsh lines as the roots grow out, which means no frequent touch-ups either.
Highlights and Lowlights
Highlights and lowlights are a great way of colouring your hair without going all out on a fresh style and colour. By adding streaks of your favourite colours and shades throughout your hair you can add dimension and depth to your hair. We would recommend a colour that is two or three shades lighter or darker than your brunette hair colour as these will blend beautifully. However, if you’re looking for something striking, why not use deep red low lights to add drama to your brunette tresses?
Another way of giving your brown hair a new lease of life is with a haircut. A fresh cut and a new style can transform your luscious locks. If you are feeling brave why not opt for a major change that’s sure to be noticed. A closely cropped pixie style for example. Or if you don’t want to go that short how about a trendy lob? Both styles will really change your attitude on your dull and boring brown hair into something amazing.
Instead of going shorter, why not go longer? You can use hair extensions to add length and volume to your hair. Opting for lengths of extensions that are slightly longer than your natural hair will add thickness. The longer the extensions, the more dramatic your look. You could also opt for a slightly different shade to add extra colour into your brunette mane.
