Brown hair color is probably the most “intelligent” of all. Brunettes are bright enough from nature, so they may enjoy a variety of short, medium, and long brown hairstyles in their natural hair color. At the same time experimenting with shades of brown hair is a big joy. Dear ladies, get inspired by our galleries of brown hairstyles and hair color ideas and choose for yourself the best brunette shade for yourself.
I. What Is Brunette Hair?
The word “brunette” is French, it refers to people with brown hair. In the world, brunette hair is the second most popular hair color after black hair. The color comes in a variety of shades, ranging from the darkest to the lightest brown. The brown color is generated by the low levels of pale pheomelanin and the high levels of dark eumelanin pigment.
Brunette hair colors are classically pretty and wealthy. Among all hair hues, this color is easy to maintain as well. There are so many gorgeous rich and lush shades of brunette! The options are endless, ranging from chocolate to honey brown to chestnut! Populations in Western are often found with brunette hair, such as the UK, the US, the Middle East, some Australian Aborigines, and more.
II. How To Choose A Brunette Shade?
As you probably already know, there are a lot of things to think about when deciding on a new hair color. To name a few, your eye color, skin tone, and undertone, as well as your go-to makeup colors and daily clothing preferences. And lastly, how do you feel about commitment and pricey salon visits? Yes, some colors are less expensive to maintain because you don’t need to go to the salon every month to touch up your roots, whereas other colors tend to require more maintenance. In this section, we will divide the brunette shade into 3 parts based on your tone to help you easy to choose the best shade that matched yours:
