You can definitely say it’s that time of the year.
Proms, weddings, and many formal events call for some great hairstyles.
In that spirit, today I want to give some love to ladies with brown hair.
One of the reasons brown hair has a bad rep is because it can look boring at times.
They don’t call it “dull brown” for nothing!
But if you want to breathe some life into your hairstyle, highlights are one of the easiest ways to do that.
Best Highlights for Brown Hair
That being said, I will give you some ideas for brown hair with highlights.
1. Dark Roots with Soft Golden Waves
We start off with the simplest, and probably most common, hairstyle for highlights, and something you see in commercials all the time. All the hair shampoo products show something similar their commercials. And that’s why we start off with the most commonly used brown highlights hairstyle.
2. Dark Brown Hair with Melting Soft Brown Highlights
Brown hair is perfect for experimenting with different shades. You start off with a bit darker shade, and go lighter as you go down.
3. Brown Hair with Chunky Blond Highlights
Blond is definitely one of the more popular hair colors. But when you have brown hair, you can’t go fully blonde. OK, you can actually, but you’ll damage your hair. So, instead of going full-blown blonde, try some highlights instead. You’ll get a much more playful and whimsical hairstyle.
4. Caramel Brown Hair with Lighter Highlights
Caramel brown is much lighter than regular brown. And you want to emphasize that. You can say caramel is very close to blonde. The best way to emphasize your caramel hair is with light brown extensions.
5. Dark Brown with Blond Balayage
Balayage is one of the best techniques when you want to achieve a natural-looking effect. The trick is that your extensions are dyed in a gradual way. You go from darker to lighter in a matter of seconds.
