Beautiful brunettes: 10 best hair color ideas

Who said brunettes don’t have fun?! Besides being the most popular hair color, there are many shades and coloring techniques to choose from. Another advantage when going brunette is it makes colored eyes pop, and makes you look youthful without needing to use makeup. When you dye your hair brunette, it also looks more lustrous and less damaged than when you go lighter.

If you want dark hair but prefer a multi tonal look- choose a dark brown shade with subtle highlights for a more natural look.

10 most beautiful red hair color ideas

Thinking of going red? Before you do, browse below for ten looks to inspire you on which shade of red works best for you; as well as a few tips on this showstopper color.

Going red requires your commitment to maintain the shade from fading. Red hair looks vibrant and calls attention, but it’s also the fastest color to fade over time. Purchase a shampoo and conditioner specifically made to help keep red looking good.

Another thing to remember when going red is that once you dye your hair this ravishing shade, it’s best to keep the color for a while. This is mainly because red pigment can be tough to fully take out ,and can leave orangey undertones if you plan on going lighter when you’re done being a redhead.

Red hair looks good on all skin tones, especially due to the many options when it comes to hair coloring. You can go fully red, get highlights or lowlights; and not to mention the many shades of red you can play with. Which look do you like best?!

  • If you want to add eyeshadow, try neutral colors so the main emphasis remains on the bright eyeliner. Nice eyeshadows which work well with most colors are gold, taupe, pearl and similar shades. Of course, if your going for a super bright look, pack on the color!

The best shades of blonde: 10 sexy hair color ideas

Have you ever thought about going blonde but were unsure of what shade to choose? Dying your hair blonde can either be a super exciting idea or leave you terrified and confused.

Will your hair be damaged? Will it look good on you? What if you look too blonde? These might be some of your concerns, especially if you have darker hair and a darker complexion. Blonde can look good on everyone, you just have to find the right shade and whether highlights or a full-head of blonde looks best. And to answer the first question, over-bleached hair can feel dry over time which is why hair treatments to add moisture are a must. Highlights don’t cause much damage, especially if your going for a medium blonde shade or go lighter gradually.

Here are ten blonde hair color looks to help you find the best one for you.

If you’re going to the salon, it’s a good idea to bring pictures of what color you’d like. It’s also good to be realistic with hair color expectations, if you have jet black don’t expect to be able to go platinum after one coloring session. Most often stylists tell you upfront what shade they can bring your hair to, and usually going 2-3 shades lighter is recommended to avoid over-damaging your hair.
