Brown hair may appear velvety, soft or rich. "Cool browns" are particularly popular in the cool season. These are cool brown shades from light ash brown to cool dark brown

  • The color brown elicits various associations. Coffee brews like espresso, mocha, and cappuccino come to mind; also earth, wood, and autumn leaves as well as chocolate, caramel bonbons and cinnamon buns. Consequently, brown is a versatile hair color, which is fairly exciting despite its restrained nature. 

    Armin Morbach’s favorite shade is cappuccino brown. "This smokey brown also contains ash-blonde nuances although the color is richer", the Schwarzkopf hair expert raves.

    The play with brown shades is subtle and often apparent only on closer look. This may be one of the great characteristic of this hair color. The color can be ordinary and extraordinary at the same time.

    The luster of freshly colored brown hair is particularly cool. Proper hair care provides the hair with nutrients for extra strength.

  • Hairstyles for Cool Shades of Brown

    Most suitable for brown hair are plain and natural hairstyles, such as casually styled low chignons or undone waves. Our models demonstrate these hairstyles above. With straight hair the focus is directed toward the hair color. Wavy hair produces movement not only for the look but also for the hair color because the light refraction varies in wavy hair. As a result, the shading of brown hair shows many nuances.
