Step towards the Dark Side: Brunette Envy!

Winter time calls for a darker shade – but that’s not the reason we’re feeling brunette envy. Emma Stone has revealed a stunning hair transformation from her fiery red, to a refreshingly new brown-haired look!

As a natural blonde, Emma has sported every colour – whilst looking incredible throughout! However, her most memorable look is her signature red. After every style switch up, Emma’s returned to her trusty auburn hues.

Nevertheless, we’re feeling inspired to step towards the dark side by her latest look. By keeping some warm undertones amongst her rich, dark brown colour, Emma has effortlessly transitioned to a chic, natural-looking brunette.

50 Shades of Brunette

The word ‘brown’ is so underrated when it comes to hair colour. Finding your desired shade of brown is so exciting with such a beautiful range of colours to choose from! Golden browns, caramels, rose gold, chestnuts, mahoganies or classic chocolates are just a few to consider. Being a brunette is both versatile and stylish. If you find a brown you love, it always helps to bring a photo with you to show your stylist.

Lowlights

Transitioning to brunette may feel slightly daunting if your hair is fairer, or you haven’t experimented with darker shades before. Lowlights are a great way to subtly add darker tones, before taking the plunge! Unlike highlights, lowlights are usually at least two tones darker than your hair. They can be done free-hand, like balayage or with a more traditional approach using foils. As much or as little colour can be added, meaning our stylists can create a style unique to your hair!
