Long Brown Hair
Long brown hair is a sophisticated and classy look. Even if you're already a brunette and looking to go up or down in shade, here are some important factors to consider.
Choosing the Right Shade
When making a drastic change, it's recommended that you slowly ease your way into the color over a couple of weeks. Staying within the color range for your tone helps to make your brown look natural.
Then once you determine whether you're "warm" or "cool," clipping out a photo from a magazine to show your stylist helps prevent any misunderstanding about what you want.
Warm Brown Colors
Skin Tone (Golden Brown, Pale Peach, Freckled, etc.)
Eye Color (Mostly Green, Blue, Golden, Brown, etc.)
Hair Color (Honey Brown, Auburn, etc.)
Cool Brown Colors
Skin Tone (Dark Brown, Olive, Pale but Pink, Bronze, etc.)
Eye Color (Dark Brown, Gray Blue, Dark Blue, etc.)
Hair Color (Black Brown, Ash Brown, etc.)
Once you are comfortable with your new long brown hair color, you can either continue visiting a stylist, or find a home coloring kit that works for you. Going darker is often the easiest to maintain, with little risk of missing your ideal shade.
