The Best Hair Color Ideas for Brunettes
Since blonde hair is a lighter base, it once seemed as though blondes had more options when it came to hair colors. With techniques like balayage taking the front seat in hair color, though, brunettes can have just as much fun with color. Lately, ashy brunettes are front and center in hair trends. These cool brunette hair colors are edgier than your everyday warm honey highlights, and they look amazing. With smoky hues like chocolate mauve and ash brown in the lead, the best brunette shades of today aren’t traditional by any means. If you’re not interested in going grey, try out cool-tone babylights for a hint of ice. Who's ready to head to the salon?
