Knowing which shade is best for your skin tone is crucial if you're thinking about having fun as a brunette. These days, brown strands are beautiful and exciting. Since there is a wide variety of shades, from caramel to dark chocolate to rose tea brown, the possibilities are unlimited.
Whether you're ready to transform your current hair colour or choose to magnify your natural brown hair, here are the factors you must consider before colouring your hair.
Remember, "Blond girls are pretty...Red girls are smart, but only a Brunette can steal a boy's heart."
Identify your Skin Tone
Finding the perfect brown hair colour starts by determining your skin tone. There are three different types: warm, cool, and neutral.
According to experts, people with a peach, yellow or golden shade have a warm skin tone. If your skin complexion has pink, red, or blue shades, you have a cool type, and if you have warm and cool shades, your skin tone is neutral.
Remember that it doesn't matter if you have a pale, medium, or dark complexion; your skin tone will be cool, warm, or neutral. Identifying your skin tone is vital to finding the perfect brunette hair colour.
Cool Skin Tone
We recommend a light ash brown hair tone if your skin tone is cool and your eyes are pale blue or brown. Milk Tea Brown from KAO is the colour you desire if you want to achieve a sophisticated result.
Another option for those with cool complexions and blue or green eyes is beige blonde highlights like KAO's Silvery Brown. This tone is elegant and beautiful.
Neutral Skin Tone
If you have a neutral skin tone, an excellent option is pale cocoa hair colour like Chestnut Brown from KAO's natural series. This colour provides the perfect balance as it is not too colourless nor too lively. You can add more brightness with a few blonde highlights.
It would be best to prefer shades that emphasize your mesmerizing eyes and beautiful features.
Warm Skin Tone
KAO's Rose Tea Brown hair colour is a warm and romantic shade terrific on people with yellow, golden, or peachy skin tones. Hair stylists recommend adding golden blonde highlights to pop up your warm tone and green or hazel eyes.
Light caramel brown hair colour such as Marshmallow Brown from KAO is a soft shade perfect for people with warm skin tones. This tone is not a good match if you have a cool skin tone, as it will make you look pale.
4 Simple Ways to Find your Skin Tone
If you're clueless about how to find your skin tone, here are four simple ways:
- Look at your skin. Take the time to look at your skin and determine your skin undertones closely.
- Match yourself with people with similar complexions and eye colours. You can look at celebrities, friends, or family members to better understand your skin tone.
- See your wrists and veins as it's easier to identify the blue, green, pink, red, and yellow tones. You have a cool skin tone if your veins are blue or purple; you're warm if your veins are green.
- Check your eyes. If you have gold shades in your eye colour, you probably have a warm skin tone. People with cool skin tones have more blue and green.
Tips for Colouring your Hair at Home
- When colouring your hair at home, it's vital to follow the directions on the product package. Please remember that chemical processed hairs process colour quickly, so avoid leaving the product on as long.
- Buy two boxes to avoid running out of hair colour through the process. If you only use one, you can save the other one for next time. KAO Liese Creamy Bubble Natural Hair Color is a quick transformation hair colour product with a rinse-off formula.
- Never mix two colours to create a new tone; leave this to the professionals. Stick with one shade and follow the instructions.
- Always test the product to guarantee you're not allergenic and prevent your hair from turning orange or purple.
- It's wise to wear old, easy-to-remove clothes as tints can stain clothes—we recommend covering surfaces with garbage bags or newspapers to prevent issues.
