When it comes to hair color, brown shades never get passé. They blend seamlessly with naturally dark hair, which is common among Filipinas and other Asian women. There’s also a brown shade for every skin tone. You don’t even have to worry about your existing wardrobe and makeup palettes when you get this lovely neutral for your hair. Today, we’re giving some attention to dark brown hair color. Check out these ideas as well on what dark brown shades to get.

1. Cappuccino

With its deep, dark color, cappuccino leaves that stark contrast against any complexion, making your skin look even more radiant. At first glance, this shade looks black, but when you look closer and when the light sees your hair, you’ll see touches of this dark brown color. The coffee-inspired tones also amplify the glossiness of your locks, making them appear extra healthy.

2. Chocolate brown

Among the dark brown hair color choices, chocolate brown is probably the most popular. You can wear it as balayage highlights or dip dyed hair. Chocolate brown is a shade or two lighter than black. When you have this color on your hair, twists and braids are seen more, so go ahead and experiment with these hairstyles. A headband braid or halo braid would look lovely, especially when you’re attending a wedding.

Editor’s tip: Make braided hairstyles last until the after-party by finishing with a few spritzes of TRESemmé Freeze Hold Hairspsray

3. Deep chocolate

This shade of brown is so dark that it’s almost black, but when the light hits your hair, deep chocolate gives your tresses depth and definition. Deep chocolate is perfect on sleek and shiny hair, so use shampoos and conditioners that make your hair so. Invest in anti-frizz products as well so nothing would ruin your luxe-looking hair.

4. Chestnut brown

Want that subtle, sun-kissed glow on your face? Try chestnut brown hair. It’s a great hair color to try during the summer (but of course, you can wear it all year long). Flaunt it on your beach pics for ultra-hot, Insta-worthy selfies.

Editor’s tip: Keep your hair color from fading by using a sulfate-free conditioner like Cream Silk Color Protect Conditioner. This product also keeps your dyed hair from drying out and getting damaged. 

5. Coffee

This shade borders on dark and medium brown. It’s lighter than cappuccino hair color but not as light as other medium brown shades like cinnamon and honey brown. Go for coffee highlights to add depth and definition to your hair. But if you want a fresh, new look, feel free to color all your strands with this shade, too!

6. Ash brown hair

If you’re on the fence about getting dark hair color or going for lighter shades, ash brown has you covered. It’s actually a medium shade of brown that borders on being dark. Because it’s lighter than other dark brown shade, bleaching may be required to achieve this color. We know how much damage this process can cause your hair, so make sure you give your tresses extra TLC. Switching to a conditioner made for colored hair plus hair mask treatments can do the trick.

Editor’s tip: Revive damaged hair and help replenish lost moisture by applying TONI&GUY Damage Repair Mask once a week. 

7. Mahogany

Taking its cue from the tropical tree, we love this color for its reddish brown tinge. Perfect for you ladies who prefer a little pop of color and brightness to your tresses.
