The Hottest Brunette Shades for Winter

Look #1: Golden Brown

Gold has long been looked at as desirable and a sign of richness. Bonus, gold is wonderful for covering those pesky greys. To achieve a lovely glint of gold throughout your brunette locks from roots to tips, here a few tips…

  • Pro Tip #1: First time colouring? Use nice’n easy No Ammonia. It is gentle and full of rich golden tones that will enhance your current naturally untreated hair. Simply choose a shade that is 1 level lighter than your natural (example, if you are medium brown, choose No Ammonia 755 Light Brown).
  • Pro Tip #2: Have some grey? Your best gold: Age Defy in a shade of Golden Brown. Again, choose a shade that is 1 or 2 levels lighter than your natural virgin hair (example, if you are medium brown, choose #6G Age Defy Light Golden Brown).
  • Pro Tip #3: Want some subtle dimension of gold in your hair? For the last 15 minutes of colour application, instead of running the colour through all of your ends take the applicator bottle and run the remaining product down scattered sections of hair. This will give subtle dimension to your overall look.

Look #2: Caramel

The rich tone of a delicious caramel can easily give life to dull brown hair. To achieve this, follow these tips…

  • Pro Tip #1: For first-time colourists, try a semi-permanent shade. It’s gentle and full of rich caramel tones that will enhance your current naturally untreated hair. For a subtle tone, stick to 1 level lighter than your natural (example, if you are medium brown, choose No Ammonia 94 Light Caramel Brown).
  • Pro Tip #2: If you have greys, your best caramel shades are in our nice’n easy collection. Choose a shade that is no more than 1 level lighter than your natural virgin hair (example, if you are medium brown, choose nice’n easy in #6W Natural Light Caramel Brown).
  • Pro Tip #3: To achieve a subtle caramel tone, instead of running your caramel colour through all of your ends, take the applicator bottle and run the remaining product down scattered sections of hair for the last 15 minutes of colour application. This will give you a more natural look overall.

Look #3: Spicy Brown

It’s time to spice things up! Spicy shades have a subtle hint of red without overpowering your brunette tones, giving hair the perfect pinch of warmth. Here’s how to get the look…

  • Pro Tip #1: First time colouring? Use No Ammonia. If your hair is dark brown, choose #95 Medium Bronze Brown.
  • Pro Tip #2: Have some grey? Try nice’n easy in one of the Reddish Brown shades like 5RB Natural Medium Reddish Brown. The brown will outweigh the red so your hair colour will not be auburn or bright red!
  • Pro Tip #3: Want some subtle dimension of gold in your hair? For the last 15 minutes of colour application, instead of running the colour through all of your ends, take the applicator bottle and run the remaining product down scattered sections of hair. This will give subtle dimension to your overall look.
