Brown hair may be one of the most common hair colours in the world but it’s also one of the most popular - with good reason. From ‘bronde’ through to chocolate mocha, there are multiple brown hues to choose from, but also low-maintenance enhancers to really make the most out of your brunette vibe. 

Whether you’re a natural brunette, or considering a move to the dark side, read on for our Hair.com tips for beautiful brown hair. 

Find Your Brunette Shade

One of the best things about brown hair? It’s super-versatile, according to the hair pros.

Brown hair suits any skin tone and personality, it’s all about finding the right shade of brunette to suit you. Let your skin tone and eye colour dictate the brown hue you go for. If you have pink/blue undertones in your skin, opt for a cool, ash brunette. If your skin is more on the warm side, you’ll suit a golden brown, or hazelnut hue. 

Book in for a consultation with your trusted hair stylist to find out what they would recommend you opt for, they will know what is possible with your current tone and what end result you can expect. Ensure you take references of images with the brown hair tones you like best so they are clear on your goals, after all brown hair comes in many guises.

Enhance Your Brunette


Just like any hair type or colour, it’s vital to choose a haircare regime that’s suited to your hair’s needs to keep the colour super-glossy and radiant. A hair colour pro will be able to advise you on a colour care range that will keep your freshly coloured brunette look healthy and shiny.

Seek out a range designed especially for coloured hair, like Chromatique range by Kérastase. It’s designed to help maintain and preserve the intensity of coloured hair. 

TOP TIP: When washing your hair, run the water on a colder setting, especially for the final rinse. This will close the hair shaft and seal in your colour. It also gives you shinier hair and avoiding heat on the hair altogether will help reduce damage too.

3. Brunette Styling Hacks

If you’ve added in multi-tonal highlights or lowlights to your brunette, you need a style that really shows them off.

A classic bouncy blow dry will give you hair goals to last for days and the curls will show off your multi-dimensional shades. If blow dries are not on the agenda and time is tight, twist your towel-dried hair after applying Redken No Blow Dry Cream and leave to air dry. You’ll have loose waves without the heat.

If you need styling inspo, your hairdresser can point you in the right direction by analysing your face shape and hair texture so you walk out the salon with your match-made-in-heaven brunette hairstyle.
