The hottest brunette shades for winter

A brunette will look great as a brunette in December just as much as July, but if you feel like warming yourself up for the winter, we are happy to help. Here you have three hot looks you can choose from. 

 


Look #1: Golden Brown

Gold has long been looked at as desirable and a sign of richness. Bonus, gold is wonderful for covering greys. To achieve a lovely glint of gold throughout your brunette locks from roots to tips, here a few tips.

Pro Tip 1

First time coloring? Use Soft Color without ammonia. It is gentle and full of rich golden tones that will enhance your current naturally untreated hair. Simply choose a shade that is 1 level lighter than your natural color (for example, if you are medium brown, choose Soft Color 77 Golden Brown).

Pro Tip 2

Have some grey? Your best gold: Koleston Light Golden Brown 53. Again, choose a shade that is 1 or 2 levels lighter than your natural virgin hair (example, if you are medium brown, choose Koleston Permanent Hair Color Cream 67 Chocolate Brown).

Pro Tip 3

Want some subtle dimension of gold in your hair? For the last 15 minutes of color application, instead of running the color through all of your ends, take the applicator bottle and run the remaining product down scattered sections of hair. This will give subtle dimension to your overall look.

Look #2: Caramel

The rich tone of a delicious caramel can easily give life to dull brown hair. To achieve this, follow tips below.

Pro Tip 1

For first-time colorists, try a semi-permanent shade. It’s gentle and full of rich caramel tones that will enhance your current naturally untreated hair. For a subtle tone, stick to 1 level lighter than your natural one (example, if you are medium brown, choose Soft Color Golden Cocoa 773).

Pro Tip 2

If you have greys, your best caramel looking shades are in our Koleston collection. Choose a shade that is no more than 1 level lighter than your natural virgin hair (example, if you are medium brown, choose Koleston Chocolate Brown 67).

Pro Tip 3

To achieve a subtle caramel tone, instead of running your caramel color through all of your ends, take the applicator bottle and run the remaining product down scattered sections of hair for the last 15 minutes of color application. This will give you a more natural look overall.

Look #3: Spicy Brown

It’s time to spice things up! Spicy shades have a subtle hint of red without overpowering your brunette tones, giving hair the perfect pinch of warmth. Here’s how to get the look.

Pro Tip 1

First time coloring? Use Soft Color. If your hair is dark brown, choose Medium Red Brown 457.

Pro Tip 2

Have some grey hair? Try Koleston in one of the Reddish Brown shades like Chic Brown 575. The brown will outweigh the red so your hair color will not be auburn or bright red.

Pro Tip 3

Want some subtle dimension of gold in your hair? For the last 15 minutes of color application, instead of running the color through all of your ends, take the applicator bottle and run the remaining product down scattered sections of hair. This will give subtle dimension to your overall look.
