Blonde can be too bright and too hard to maintain but brunette can be boring and common – bring these two beautiful colors together and you’ve got the goldilocks recipe for a beautiful hair color.
Brown to Blonde Ombre
The ombre look is probably so popular because it lightens up your darker locks without the high maintenance of blonde highlights. This simple look is best with some lighter highlights around your face and then using balayage to blend the blonde ends into the brown roots.
Caramel Highlights on Brown Hair
Too blonde on naturally dark hair can look unnatural. We want our blonde highlights to compliment our natural hair color. If you have a warmer brunette natural hue then opt for some caramel highlights on the top layers of your hair. This will keep your hair looking natural and won’t cost as much as a full head dye.
Ash Blonde Highlights on Brown Hair
If your skin tone is cool and your hair doesn’t have the warm orange and red hues, then you could opt for an ash blonde over your brown hair. Keep it natural by keeping the highlights minimal. Make the front brighter but around the crown let the highlights start about an inch or two down. It will keep the maintenance to a minimum.
If you don’t want the blonde to be drastic, then keep the ombre very subtle by going from dark brown to medium brown to blonde at the tips. This will almost create a red hue throughout your hair, especially where the medium brown and blonde meet creating a gorgeous and dynamic hair color.
Warm Highlights for the Front
We want to keep these highlights simple so rather than covering your head with foils, only cover a few tresses at the front and keep them towards the bottoms of your locks. This will warm up your hair color, keep cost and maintenance down and it adds movement to your layers.
Go Short then Highlight
If you want to go blonde and you’ve been considering going shorter, then combine these two hair desires. The shorter your hair, the simpler it is to take care of your highlights and keep it looking natural. The blonde highlights will give your shorter hair a lot of style and dimension, especially if you opt for a wavy texture or choppy layers.
