How to Color Dark Brown Hair to Light Brown Hair There are several ways to lift dark brown hair to a lighter brown color. In every instance, the best results will be achieved by a professional hairstylist in a salon. Stylists are trained to understand how hair reacts to all types of hair color chemicals, and they have a wide range of color shades on hand to achieve your desired result. Most dark hair has warm, underlying pigment that is revealed when your stylist applies the lightener or hair color with ammonia that is necessary to lighten hair. If your desired shade is warm—like golden or red brown—this is no problem. If you prefer a cooler result, like sandy or light ash brown, your stylist may have to tone your hair with a cool overlaying shade that will balance the unwanted warmth. Another option when lightening hair is to ask your stylist to apply lots of very fine highlights. The highlights will make your overall shade look lighter without dying all of your hair. 2. How to Color Brown Hair to Blonde Hair If you want to lighten your brunette shade to blonde it’s best to make an appointment with a professional stylist. You will stand a much better chance of achieving the precise shade that you have in mind, and of walking out of the salon with an even application and without damage to your hair. Your stylist will use a lightener to lift the dark color pigment out of your hair. Depending on how dark your natural color is, she may have to apply the lightener more than once. The lightener will lift your hair to an orange or yellow shade, then your stylist will deposit the desired tone. She may also opt to apply lots of extremely fine highlights rather than lighten all of your hair. 3. How to Color Blonde Hair to Brown Hair There may come a time when you are tired of coloring your brown hair to blonde, and you want to return to a brown shade. You may think it’s as easy as putting brown dye over your blonde locks, but if you do, you won’t be happy with the results. This is because while you’ve been lightening your hair, you’ve been removing all of the natural golden and red tones, so when you cover your hair with brown dye again, it will look flat or even a bit green. Step one? Call a stylist. He or she will know how to first replace the missing warm copper and gold tones before applying the final application of brown hair color, and you will be much happier with the finished results!

The key to maintaining this shade is to get regular root touch-ups. “If you have grey, ask the colorist to put conditioner on your already light ends to protect the base from running through during washing,” Tresch says. “Also, don’t tone down the sun kissed ends. If the ends aren’t already light, add bayalage or foil some ombre ends and tone them with a subtle velvet brown on brown tone.”facebook dialogPinterestDimitrios KambourisFair Skin Tone With Cool UndertonesDakota JohnsonDakota Johnson’s hair color isn’t exactly 50 shades of brown, but more like one shade of chocolate brown with fleck of auburn overtones, according to celebrity hair colorist Sharon Dorram. “To create this color, start with a rich semi-permanent light to medium brown to richen up the natural base color,” Dorram tells Allure. “Then, paint in soft highlights strategically on the ends and around the face frame. Finish with a semi-auburn gloss to create warmth.” Keep this hair color from fading by not using alcohol laced styling products (like mousse and hair spray) and to over shampooing, Dorram advises.facebook dialogPinterestGetty ImagesFair Skin Tone With Warm UndertonesKate Middleton“Kate’s is a maintenance color to remove the odd grey add depth and dimension,” celebrity colorist Nicola Clarke says to describe Middleton’s shiny, picture perfect hair.
