What to Ask for At the Hairdressers – The Brunette Edit

Are you a blonde looking for a complete colour change or a brunette looking for a colour refresh? Before you embark on your new colour journey it’s important to do determine which shade of brown to ask for at your hairdressers in Bournemouth.  After all, there are so many brunette shades to choose from.

Finding out whether you are cool or warm toned is one great way of choosing a hair colour which will complement your skin tone.  An easy way of doing this is by looking at the veins on your wrist. If they are more green than blue, you are likely to have a warm undertone and suit a golden brunette colour.

If your veins appear blue, you are cool toned and will suit an ash brown. If your veins aren’t particularly green or blue, it’s likely that you will suit a natural brown colour or a colour with red undertones.

Here we compiled some Bournemouth hair colour trends and ideas to help you ask for the perfect brunette shade at your hair colour consultation.

Caramel Balayage

Whether you are a natural brunette or have colour treated hair, caramel balayage is the ultimate low-maintenance choice! This natural looking brunette has soft caramel balayage highlights that give a beautiful dimension to your existing colour.

Cool Espresso

This perfect dark brunette shade is ideal for those with cooler undertones. To take this colour even further you can ask for a sombre effect at the hairdressers in Westbourne to add lighter, smoky tones through the ends.

Mushroom Brown

First, it was mushroom coffee taking the internet by storm and now it’s mushroom brown hair! This a very ashy tone with grey undertones which looks beautiful on cool skin tones.

Chocolate Brown

A classic colour that never goes out of style! Because of its neutral undertones, chocolate brown suits most skin tones. It’s also a very adaptable shade that can look great in a light or darker shade.
