Among all the hair colors, brown is probably the most popular among Filipinas. Its different shades give everyone options that suit their skin tone and personality. Brown blends seamlessly with naturally dark tresses as well. If you’re looking for a shade that isn’t far from your original hair color, we’ve got the perfect pick: chocolate brown hair color. And here are chic ways on how you can rock this hue once you decide to color your hair with it.
1. Long, sexy waves
Chocolate brown hair color can add more depth to your dark hair. This way, when you opt for sexy, romantic waves, your curls or waves look more defined.
Editor’s tip: Replace your regular conditioner with Cream Silk Color Protect Conditioner. Its sulfate-free formulation helps maintain the vibrancy of your hair color. It also prevents dryness and dullness, which are common problems you’ll deal with when you have your hair dyed.
2. Pixie cut hairstyle
If you have short hair like a pixie cut, it’s best to have it entirely dyed. Chocolate brown highlights might not be noticeable on short, black hair, so just go all the way. Get a pixie cut with side bangs or even a long fringe so you can play with texture.
Editor’s tip: Make layers and side bangs more defined by applying TONI&GUY High Definition Spray Wax. This hair product will also help keep your fringe in place.
3. Dip dyed lob
Got a busy schedule? Go for dip-dyed hair. It’s easier to maintain than full-colored hair, as you don’t have to go back to the salon to retouch your roots once your hair starts growing. Dip-dyed hair suits lobs and long tresses; this way, the abrupt transition from your natural hair color to the dye is more noticeable.
Editor’s tip: Keep colored hair from getting dry and dull by applying TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Treatment Mask once a week. This product also helps keep your hair frizz-free for up to 48 hours.
4. Tousled waves
Natural waves and curls also go well with colored hair. If you want them to look more relaxed, a messy’ do is your best bet. And with chocolate brown hair color, a tousled hairstyle becomes even chicer.
Editor’s tip: Apply a drop of Cream Silk Standout Straight Leave-On Cream from the mid-lengths to the tips of your wavy hair. This will nourish your hair and keep it smooth and shiny without weighing it down.
5. Loose waves
The key to nailing this look? Scrunch, scrunch, scrunch! It looks a little more styled than a tousled ‘do, but you do not need to curl all sections of your hair like when you’re creating sexy waves. A loose wavy hairstyle is perfect when you need to add a bit of glam to a simple, everyday look.
6. Bouncy blowout
Make your layers look fancy with a blowout hairstyle. This way, you get salon-quality chocolate brown hair that you can slay from day ’til night.
7. Straight, shoulder-length hair
When you trim your long hair to shoulder-length, why don’t you get chocolate brown hair color as well? Get to revamp your look even if you just chopped a few inches off your hair.
8. Simple down ‘do
Of course, if you simply want to let your hair down, you can just leave it be! After all, with a beautiful chocolate brown hair color, even finger-combed hair can look fab.
9. Chocolate brown hair with bangs
Add oomph to your whole look by getting bangs along with chocolate brown hair. Bangs can also help balance out a long face. Just make sure to blow dry your fringe before leaving the house so it stays in good shape.
If you simply want to add color to your hair in small doses, get highlights. They are enough to keep your hair from looking plain and boring. They become more prominent when your hair hits the light, giving your face that warm glow.
Take a break from black hair and try chocolate brown hair color. This might just be the makeover that you’ve been wishing for.
