Four Fresh Ways To Breathe New Life Into Your Brunette Hair Colour

Update Your Brown Hair Colour at Fresh Lifestyle Salon & Spas in Blackheath, Islington & Fitzrovia

Sometimes, brown hair can get a bad rap. But the truth is, with the help of the Aveda hair colour experts at Fresh Lifestyle Salon & Spas in Blackheath, Islington & Fitzrovia – brown hair is anything but dull! In fact, it is one of the most versatile hair colours out there.

Whether you’re looking to add subtle dimension to your hair with some balayage highlights, mix in a pop of colour, or have a hairstyle makeover, there are plenty of fun ways to change up your brunette hair colour.

If you have reached a bit of a stalemate with your brunette locks, why not consider trying something that will enhance your shade? To find the shade of brunette that works best for you, ask your Fresh stylist for hair colour ideas just for brunettes, or find your own inspiration from our beautiful brown hair looks below.

1. Try Out A Bronde Balayage

If you are looking to add a touch of blonde to your tresses, the best way to do it is with a balayage. To get the look, your Fresh Lifestyle stylist will keep your brown colour and weave the blonde throughout the lengths of your hair, with the colour getting stronger at the ends of your hair –  you’ll get to enjoy the best of both worlds. This method of colouring your hair means that the root regrowth is less noticeable, so you won’t need to visit us so often!

2. Highlights & Lowlights for Brunettes

If you’re not ready to opt for an all-over colour change, consider highlights as a way to add mutli-dimensional colour to your hair. Depending on your preference, your Aveda hair colour expert can be as subtle or as bold as you desire. For a naturally sun-kissed look, choose a shade that’s a few shades lighter than your base colour. If you have a mid-brown hair colour and wish to add dimension to your hair, you could also consider adding lowlights to darken your hair. For a bold look, consider adding darker red colours to your locks. 

Of course, if you want to lighten your hair (whether by adding highlights or going for an all-over lighter shade), you’ll need to bleach your hair – and the darker your starting colour, the more sessions may be required to reach your desired end result.

3. Join The Dark Side

For a sultry switch-up, choose a colour that’s darker than your current hue. A deep brunette allows you to maintain your brown mane while still experiencing something different. No matter your skin tone, going darker can make for an eye-catching change. Ask your Fresh hair colour specialist which shades would work the best with your skin tone. 

4. Get A Fresh Haircut

Getting a new hair colour isn’t the only way to change up how your brown hair looks – a fresh cut can also transform your brunette mane. If you’re ready for a major change, give a closely cropped pixie a chance. If you prefer a little more length, try a ‘lob’ for your new style.
