Beautiful Brown Hair Color

Nothing says elegant and understated like the subtle glamor of perfectly colored beautiful brown hair color. What sets just plain old box colored brown apart from the beautiful, dimensional, sparkling coffees, toffees, caramels and espressos seen on the heads of celebrities?

The answer: foils.

Most of those beautiful, perfectly toned, multi-dimensional shades of rich browns you see on celebrities are done using multiple colors of hair colors, or done with a double process hair color technique.

To explain double process: basically the hair is foiled with a lightener to achieve the desired lightness required to get the perfect tone. Meaning the hair is lightened past that funky orange stage to a paler color, then toned with the perfect desired shade. This allows much cooler, less warm shades to be achieved and is perfect for those looking for that perfect light brown.

This can sometimes be done in one step, depending on the condition of the hair ie, if the hair already has a dark hair color on it or not… A consultation can help your hair color professional establish your “hair history”

Also if you already have highlights just adding a rich brown gloss can be an easy step for you to achieve the color you crave!
