Not too dark and not too light, these medium brown hair color options give you that sweet spot in between.

If there’s something Asian women and Filipinas are blessed with, it’s beautiful dark brown and black hair. For those who wish to upgrade their look in a simple, subtle way, medium brown hair color might just be their winner. It’s a way for them to achieve that new look and get comfortable with lightening their hair color.

The beauty of medium brown hair is that a lot of its shades take inspiration from nature (and from food!). They’re also pretty versatile so they can work with different skin tones. Here are five shades you might want to splash your tresses with for your next look.

1. Butterscotch

This color takes on the light but warm tones of the popular dessert, the key ingredients of which  are brown sugar and butter. We love how this treat-inspired hue lends a sense of softness to facial features! Butterscotch also looks great on sleek hair, so apply a drop of hair serum for some added shine.

With its naturally golden tones, honey instantly adds a touch of warmth and depth to brown hair. Step out into the sun and let the light show off this color’s beauty. Dye your hair honey brown during summer to complement that just-came-from-the-beach glow.

Ashy, not brassy, so goes the phrase. If you want a color that draws out more of the browns and grays than tinges of red, try ash brown. This hair color gives you a soft brown shade that is both chic and edgy.

TONI&GUY Damage Repair Mask

Editor’s tip: Frequent dyeing can leave your hair fried and lifeless. Restore its moisture, vibrancy and softness with TONI&GUY Damage Repair Mask.
