The appeal of light brown hair color
One of the reasons that light brown hair color has such enduring appeal is because of how easy it is to get and look after. Most people are able to achieve a shade on the light brown spectrum using less dye than almost any other color. Because the dye used is often less intense than the bleaches and strong hues used for other colors, it also helps the hair to remain relatively healthy. What’s more, light brown hair does not require a lot of upkeep. Unlike more striking colors that reveal root growth quickly, hair that has been dyed light brown grows out subtly.
Stay on top of the trends
With the rise of modern coloring trends such as ombre hair, natural color looks are becoming more fashionable. Light brown hair balayage is now one of the most popular color styles for women of all ages: its natural and sophisticated effect has made it the look of choice for both those headed into the office or off on vacation.
Combining light brown hair with lowlights can be a great way of providing some deeper accents to your overall look. They can help make your hair look thicker and healthier, while making the lighter parts of your hair seem even brighter by contrast. For people with warm skin tones who want to bring out reddish and amber hues, putting caramel highlights in light brown hair helps to add vibrancy.
How to dye light brown hair
Achieving the perfect light brown hair color depends on the natural shade of your hair, or the coloring already in your hair. If you are blessed with naturally dark locks then you will first need to bleach the hair a few shades lighter. For those who have mid-brown, red, or blonde hair, you should not need to use bleach to start with. When mixing your dye, pay attention to how much of the different color hues you are using. For example, if you already have quite rich red tones in your hair, consider using a slightly ashier base to balance it.
Once you have successfully achieved the light brown hair shade you want, be sure to maintain it properly: use shampoos and conditioners specifically tailored to color-treated hair and limit your use of heat tools.
