Five smart tips to keep your brunette shade brilliant.
1 / TRIM THE ENDS
If you’re transitioning from blonde to brunette, there’s no hiding your split ends. If you are concerned about cutting off too much length, snip off a little at a time more frequently to keep your color looking fresh from root to tip.
2 / GRAB A MASCARA WAND
Sometimes brunette shades can look a little flat. To add some depth, select a hair color that is 2 shades darker than your current color and use a mascara wand to apply the color. This adds subtle dark pieces to hair. Or, if you want to add dimension, try this technique with an Ultra Blonde Nice'n Easy Shade.
3 / LOOK FOR "3 SALON TONES" ON THE BOX
Nice’n Easy works with your natural highs and lows to give you the most authentic-looking color. To achieve a brunette shade that’s never fake or phony, try this: Nice 'n Easy.
4 / KEEP IT NATURAL-LOOKING
If you color often, try coloring just your roots or use your fingers to comb the hair color product through the ends of your hair for the last 5 minutes only. This will enhance the natural tones and highlights in your hair, so your brunette shade always looks natural enough to be your own.
5 / FILL IN YOUR BROWS
Nicely-kept eyebrows frame the face and accentuate your features. Try a brow pencil that is ONE shade lighter than your hair color (too light and your brows disappear, too dark and it looks unnatural). Note, if you have red tones in your hair, don’t pick a brow pencil with a red undertone. It will wash out your complexion, so stick to a brown pencil.
6 / CONCEAL YOUR GRAYS
Blondes can mask grays at the roots better than brunettes because grays blend better with their color. If you only have a few grays at the roots, try Root Touch-Up in a brunette shade to manage your regrowth. If your hair is mostly gray, consider going lighter brown or darker blonde to blend better with your grays and give you more time between coloring.
