Brown hair is one of the easiest colours to get right at home. There is no risk of getting brassy tones which could happen when you try to go blonde. If you already have brown hair, you may be able to make your locks look even richer by adding lowlights to your style instead of an all-over dye job. A beautiful colour for those with naturally brown hair is chocolate-brown. This hair colour looks especially gorgeous on women with brown eyes. If you have naturally brown hair, colouring it with chocolate-brown is a low risk style change that can give gorgeous, enviable results.
Start with a close shade change
If you are new to using hair colour, we recommend trying subtle changes, for example going from brown to chocolate brown. You will have results that aren’t too dramatic but that will make your hair look healthy, rich and luscious.
Consider professional or home colour
There are a lot of great home colour kits to choose from and they are obviously the more cost effective option compared with a salon. However, if you decide to colour your hair by yourself, ensure you read the instructions carefully and that you pick a well-known, trusted brand. L'Oreal, Clariol, and Garnier are some respected brands. It is recommended that you test any home hair colouring product on your skin first before applying it to your hair. This is to ensure that you do not have an allergic reaction to the product.
Ask if you can carry off the look
Will chocolate brown hair compliment your skin tone? If you have light to dark brown hair, you can easily colour your hair chocolate-brown. Some natural blondes can also carry it off. If the available chocolate colours aren't right for your hair, it may also be worth considering lighter shades of brown such as espresso, caramel, or a darker brown such as coffee.
