Fantastic ideas for spicing up brown hair colours

If you look closely at your hair in the light, you will see that it is full of different shades, with glints of perhaps more copper or blond in different lights. This is why Garnier hair colour is not simple, block colour. Whether you are looking for a rich coppery colour or a deep silky black, the end result will be just as complex as your natural hair.

While it is always possible to go for a full transformation to blond or red, these processes sometimes take time and can be daunting. Garnier hair dyes have a great advantage: you can play with modern trends like highlights, dip dye or ombre hair to enhance, not eradicate, your naturally gorgeous brunette tones.

For chocolatey brown eyes and olive complexions, deep red-mahogany highlights framing the face and flooding the tips can really bring out the warm skin tones and create a sultry, glamorous look. If you are lighter-skinned you can really brighten up your brown hair colour with an edgy blond dip dye or ombre hair style for a youthful beachy look that is funky yet natural. A dramatic look can be achieved with a deep black-brown ombre hair. Perhaps not for the faint of heart or very fair skin!
