Straying away from the rambunctious and colorful summer hair colors, fall calls for brown hair with blonde highlights. Not only does brown hair with blonde highlights look natural and warm, much like the season itself, but this cute easy hairstyle also flatters most skin tones and hair types. The golden layers will seamlessly drip through a natural brunette and match with the serene sunsets and withering leaves of autumn.
Conveniently, you wouldn’t have to worry about fading either since the blonde will effortlessly camouflage with your natural hair color as time goes on, making this a convenient hairstyle for women. After all, blonde and brown hair is a match made in heaven. Highlights inherently add a level of volume and depth to hair that wasn’t there before; so don’t hesitate to experiment with this type of coloring if you haven’t had this hairstyle done before.
Before going into specific styles of highlights, it’s important to understand the method used to achieve brown hair with blonde highlights. The most common techniques that colorists use to achieve this look are called balayage and foil. Although the techniques are pretty standard, there are some parameters to consider before starting the process.
The first is to decide the size and placement of your highlights with regard to your crown and hairline. Let the stylist know what type of look you’re going for and they can help you make a decision. For example, the placement of the highlights would vary depending on how many faces framing you want and whether or not you want the highlights to merge at the end of the strands when you pull your hair back. The amount of highlights you want depends on how much contrast you desire. The more contrast, the more obvious the highlights appear.
The lightness level of the color you end up choosing will also alter the overall contrast of the look. If you desire a more natural look, then try not go more than three hues lighter than your natural shade of hair color. If you want your highlights to truly pop, then feel free to go lighter than that!
