Alright, we’ve talked 2019 hair trends, and though the return of copper is sure to be huge this year, Google searches for ‘brown hair’ are rising (and you’re about to see why).
Just like tonal blondes, going ‘brunette’ doesn’t mean committing to one shade all over. Talk to your stylist about face-framing colour techniques; toffee-toned babylights, toasted chestnut shades (think deep, rich red), or try balayage. All of which will add dimension to chocolatey locks.
So, how about styling brunette tresses? According to Helen Davis, of Pickles & Co salon, “creating a natural look is starting to become popular, not only for colour, but for styling too. Shabby chic waves are bigger than ever, using a mid-length base, with soft laying – textured, but not heavy”.
Healthy hair is (unsurprisingly) ‘in’ too. When asked about ‘trends’, Davis goes on; “it’s about how shiny the hair is, meaning every highlight needs toning, every brunette needs glossing. We are finding that clients want healthy hair that you want to touch because it just flows, the softness of the waves and texture creates a movement that will naturally fall into place.”
There’s heaps of brunette inspiration out there, from your Instagram feed, to your bus ride to work (I can’t be the only hair stalker on the number 53). But, to encourage your commitment to brunette – and because my ‘saved’ Insta pictures are 99% shots of glossy brown hair – here are the snaps you can take straight to the salon chair.
