Seasons may change, but with sun-kissed brown locks, summer will never leave you. Try working a rich, medium-warm brown as a base tone, and using a few lighter shades (like caramel and copper) as highlights, to give it a wonderful sunkissed finish.

Editor’s tip: Colouring your hair can leave it a little bit brittle. Try TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Hair Masque Treatment to return life and moisture to your hair.
