By March 25, 2022No Comments

If you’re thinking of maybe switching to a shade of brown but aren’t too sure which shade to go with due to the various options, we’d be happy to chat about some fabulous choices! After a readthrough, visit Salon Antoine for a consultation with our professional stylists. We are located at 11092 Lee Highway in Fairfax, VA.


When you’ve decided you want go darker, chocolate brown is a great option. Just as the delicious sweet, it is a smooth, deeper hue. While you may be convinced that brown works better on warm complexions and darker eyes, that’s not the case. Even if you have lighter eyes and skin, the chocolate shade will only make those features stand out even more. This shade can also be considered a low-maintenance one. This is because even when your roots grow out, they will blend beautifully with the deeper tone. It is also a color that tends to add richness if this is something that you are currently looking for. And even just a few beach waves will beautifully show the color off as you walk out of the house.

Of course, if you’re searching for a lighter shade, you might go with caramel. When you’re already rocking a dark brown and just want to change things up slightly, this is the hue to go with. The contrast of the two colors is sure to do wonders to your appearance. This also means that you don’t need to fully color your head with caramel, but rather just add a few stands here and there. Perhaps you might just add two strands toward the end of the face to make them stand out without eliminating focus to the rest of the hair. Caramel has been a big hit in Hollywood and works great if you decide to get an ombré as well. Ultimately, you can’t lose no matter how you decide to incorporate this one-of-a-kind hue.

Are you thinking of a look that blends red and brown? If so, cherry brown is a fabulous option. It doesn’t make you sacrifice one shade for the other and gives you both a vibrant and darker look in the end. As with the previous choice, you might decide to only get highlights of this brown color to see how you like it. Even just several highlights throughout your hair will make all the difference. On the other hand, if you’re set on this hue, it can start right at the root, or a few inches down with a balayage. The choices are endless! No matter which you choose, you can’t go wrong. These shades look gorgeous when mixed together, so curling your hair is sure to show it off. Plus, when the sun hits your locks, the cherry brown will shine through right away.
