So, you want to go lighter for summer without going full-on blonde. You can keep your status as a brunette by telling your colorist for caramel highlights. The color can be added to any brunette’s hair using tricks like balayage, or with foils, to lighten up the base in a delicate way. When the creamy color is evening distributed and placed on the actual areas, it should mimic what the sun does naturally, giving the hair a more dimensional look.
It also happens to be one of the most obsequious (and popular) highlight shades for dark brown hair. Have a look in the collection we have got here.
1. Golden Brown Hair Color
Golden brown hair color has a warm and friendly shade—it’s beautiful on people with peachy or golden skin and warm brown or warm green or hazel keekers. Consider following actress Emma Watson’s example of adding some dark golden blonde highlights to your golden brown mane color for a lovely color combination.
2. Honey Brown Hair Color
Honey brown hair color, with its warm, tawny hue, is the perfect balance between light brown hair color and dark blonde hair color. Consider this shade if you have a fair color and light eyes. It is also beautiful on a deeper, golden color—think you are Jennifer Lopez!
3. Light Caramel Hair Color
Light caramel brown hair color is a hot, tawny shade. It’s ideal for people with golden, warm complexions and warm brown keekers. Avoid this shade if your complexion is cool or extremely fair or pink—it will clash with your derm! This shade is also an awesome choice for balayage or ombré highlights in a darker chocolate brown base color.
4. Light Ash Brown Hair Color
Light ash brown hair color is cool and sophisticated, especially if your hair color is fair and your eyes are light blue or brown. This is the shade you would like if you do not want to see any red or gold in your hair color. Add some cool blonde highlights for an elegant result. Opt for this shade if your natural color is lighter or medium cool brown.
5. Dark Ash Brown Hair Color
Dark ash brown hair color is a great, deep tone without any traces of red or gold. It is beautiful on most skin tones, and it very dramatic for people with brown or blue keekers. A deep shade like dark ash brown is at its best when it is healthy and shiny. Try styling this shade with a treatment oil for a lovely glossy result.
6. Chocolate Cherry Brown Hair Color
Chocolate cherry brown hair color is a luscious deep brown with its hints of cool red. It is a dramatic and eye-catchy shade. Try it if you have a medium, cool or neutral complexion and cool brown or blue eyes, and if the natural shade is medium or dark cool brunette.
