It grates us that people can so simply minimise all Brunette Colours to one simple term: Brown Hair. So we have broken down the beauty that is a Brunette and its different hues.
Photo: Tumblr It grates us that people can so simply minimise all Brunette Colours to one simple term: Brown Hair. Did you know you could get a Warm Brunette or that you can find Ash Tones outside of Blondes? Or that they come in more options than just dark? So before we start ripping out our Hair in frustration, we thought we would break down the beauty that is a Brunette and introduce you to the different hues. Photo: Tumblr The Natural Brunette Natural Brunette’s are exactly as the title suggests, they are a Natural shade. They are a single pigment hue that will give you a smooth, one-dimensional Colour that is just like a Natural Colour, but beautifully toned. Our favourites: 3 Dark Brown is so dark that it's extremely close to black. It’s glossy, shiny and gives you incredible depth unseen in other dark Colours. 5 Light Brown is our version of a true Brunette base Colour. It is a neutral hue that is our first choice for those looking for “Brown Hair”. 3 Dark Brown Shop Now 5 Light Brown Shop Now Photo: Tumblr The Cool Brunette Cool Brunettes have dominant Ash or Beige Tones, that have nothing to do with the Colour’s lightness. They are a creamier, softer Brunette with a smokey hue. They are superb for those seeking a sleeker, more subdued shade. Our favourites: 6.2 Dark Beige Blonde might not be as dark as you would think for a Brunette but we use it for a cooler, softer Light Brown or mix it with a darker Natural Brunette shade (5 Light Brown) for a creamier, Natural variation. 7.1 Ash Blonde is a favourite to mix with a Natural Brunette to create a Toned down, cool Light Brown. It creates this unique hue that isn’t easy to replicate with a single Colour. 6.2 Dark Beige Blonde BUY NOW 7.1 Ash Blonde BUY NOW Photo: Tumblr The Warm Brunette Warm Brunettes have dominant Golden, Chocolate, Copper or Mahogany hues. They have the most intensity and bring a glow to the Hair that translates into incredible depth, giving your Hair Volume, unlike any other Colour. Warm Brunette’s are the best way to recreate a Natural looking, sun-kissed warmth. Our favourites: 5.53 Chocolate Brown has a bit of it all. Its has a Mahogany depth with a bronzed, Golden reflect. These double hues make for a thicker, richer Colour with a full, warm Natural Brunette effect.5.52 Deep Chocolate Plum is a polished Colour with a perfect balance of warm hues. It's rich, it’s shiny, it’s incredibly vibrant and very a dominant shade. 5.52 Deep Chocolate Plum Shop Now 5.53 Chocolate Brown Shop Now
Is there a Hair Colour that can create greasy Hair more than others? Or, even better, is there a Hair Colour that can help manage it?
Photo: Tumblr Long live your Natural oils that keep your skin firm and wrinkle free. But when those oils reek havoc with your Hair you're taking on a whole other beast. Nothing is worse that waking up the next day after a serious blow dry, to look back in the mirror and see it all turned to grease. There is only so much copious amounts of dry shampoo can do to extend it and we all know once those oils are in, they are only properly removed with a good ole fashioned shampoo. So is there a Hair Colour that can create greasy Hair more than others? Or, even better, is there a Hair Colour that can help manage it? Yes and yes. Typically dark Hair Colour’s with weaker Developer’s will be more prone to oils. Whereas lightened Hair dries out the Hair resulting in less oils. Now while less oily Hair may sound appealing, but bleaching does not, there are still other ways around it. Lightening your Hair with the help of a strong Developer like a 30 or 40 Volume Developer will help dry out your Hair but won’t damage your Hair like when using Bleach. If you don’t want to have a full head of Blonde, why not try some Highlights to help break your Hair up to beat that grease!

Photo: Tumblr When your think botched home Colour job what do you think? Is it that horrible yellow, over processed Blonde with way too much warmth? Yeah, us too. It’s a dead giveaway of a bad home job or poor use of Bleach. So if Lady Gaga had you thinking Yellow could be your Colour (shudder the thought) it's time to scrap that thought once and for all and start taking your Blonde seriously. So what causes Yellow? Basically, it's because of a poor Lightening job. Either the Bleach or Colour hasn’t been left on the Hair long enough or the Developer wasn’t strong enough or the Colour wasn’t properly Toned, if at all. Yellow is common in Bleach users because it strips your Hair of any Natural or artificial Colour pigment and when it's not finished correctly, it shows. But here’s the thing, you don’t need to keep being Yellow or need to completely change your Colour if you are currently Yellow. Our number one choice to avoid the Yellow is to use High Lifts wherever possible. They have delicious Tones - Ash, Beige, Silver - that will counteract the Yellow. And they don’t cause the damage you get with Bleach. Plus, you Lighten and Tone your Hair at the same time, bonus! Make sure you choose a strong enough Developer to Lighten, otherwise you could be left with warmth and the same problem. If you have Bleached Hair and are suffering from the Yellow, life is not doomed. Pick a Highlift to Tone, with the help of a 20 Volume Developer, for a silky Blonde with depth and reflect. Your Highlift choice is easy and is solely based on the Colour hue you want. Choose Ash to Tone down your Colour for an Ashy, smokey Blonde.Choose Beige for a creamy, classic Blonde. It’s also the best pigment to counteract the Yellow.Choose Silver when your Hair is also brassy, for a chic, Silver Blonde. 901 EXTRA LIGHT ASH BLONDE BUY NOW 902 EXTRA LIGHT BEIGE BLONDE BUY NOW 908 Extra Light Silver Blonde BUY NOW
