Espresso color highlight on brown mane
Highlighting the espresso color on a chestnut mane is achieved using the hair contouring method. This hair color was created by stylist Tarwat Bou Diab from Dubai, UAE.
Diab notes: “You have to consider your age because not every color is suitable for all ages. Also, when coloring your hair, make sure the salon uses high quality products. It is important that the product stays on and the color of the paint does not fade after several washes.
Lighting for ash brown hair
These ash brown hair highlights are definitely earthy, cool and melt with some voluminous sun kisses. They were created by hair stylist Jeanne Casallo of Auburn, Washington.
To create this hair color, Casallo heavily teased the hair to achieve a low-light effect and added hand-painted bits to give the hair a subtle sheen.
“If you are afraid of blonde hair, then this is the perfect happy medium color,” she notes. “She is very lived-in, natural and does not require special care for both cutting and coloring. I recommend using Pravana’s Perfect Brunette Shampoo and Conditioner to prolong the color.”
Dark red shadows for dark brown hair
“I would describe this look as light brown (level 5) with red-purple highlights (level 6/7) on dark brown locks. I used Wella Professional to color and dim the lights,” explains salon owner, stylist and colorist Tonya Ziske of San Jacinto, California.
Siske tells us that the best thing about this dark hair is that it is neither too long nor too short. “It’s the perfect length to wear up or down, straight or curled.”
She adds: “This style and color is easy to maintain. This would be great for women who already have brown hair because they only need to retouch once every few months.”
Caramel brown hair with highlights
This is a slightly angled bob enhanced with a caramel brown hue and some highlights. He was cut and dyed by barber Stephanie Borgelt of Brea, California.
“If you’re a natural redhead (like the model in the photo) but want some light and dark hidden balayage parts, just know that this will be a good mix when it grows out,” says Borgelt.
Dark Caramel Lowlights for medium brown hair
This medium brown hair has dark caramel highlights on the loose and tousled hairstyle. It was created by barber Karagen Drennan of Little Rock, Arkansas.
“The best thing about this style is its simplicity,” says Drennan. “The color is a natural, low-maintenance look, using natural color as a base so it won’t have new growth.”
She adds: “With this cut, she can curl her hair and wear it for as many days as she wants between shampoos, because the looser the curls, the better.”
Deep burgundy shades for cinnamon brown hair
These are maroon highlights with a darkening of the roots that branch out with golden copper balayage and raspberry ribbons! They were created by cosmetologist Evelyn Lynch from Chicago, Illinois.
“Realize that red can fade a little and embrace the warm dimension of colors,” says Lynch. “I would also learn how to use a stick, as it conveys color better.”
Pink brown eyeshadow
That rosy-brown wavy brow with highlights. was created by New Jersey-based certified colorist Nikki Parsons.
“I love that brunettes have a trendy rose gold option,” exclaims Parsons. “It’s colorful enough to feel like your hair color is fun, yet subtle enough for most jobs.”
This dark brown color may not seem like it, but Parsons says it’s hard to care for. “Expect to have to go to your stylist more often than usual for shine and maintenance, or let it fade on its own and enjoy the different shades that will reflect in your hair over time!”
She recommends Keracolor’s Rose Gold Conditioner for maintenance and notes: “Prepare to wash your hair in cold water. I also recommend the Living Proof restoration line for heat and UV protection to help prevent fading.”
Warmth is the secret thief of color. Always support your hair color with products and recommendations recommended by your stylist!
Red-purple highlights on golden-brown hair
These red-purple highlights on golden brown hair were created by salon owner and stylist Chelsea Lichfield of Avondale, Arizona.
She explains: “I got creative with how I applied lighting in the dark. I did not saturate the scalp to the tips. I heavily saturated the scalp and blended the color when I got to the middle to keep the brightness at the ends.
“This look is perfect for women who want to add volume to their existing color,” she adds. “Low lighting is the perfect way to transition from summer to fall. It’s crazy that adding a bit of saturation can make a big difference in making your color pop!”
