Love the idea of going all in with a rich, brunette shade? Color experts give advice on what you should consider before coloring your hair.

  • Selecting A Color “Complexion and eye color will greatly affect your decision on haircolor choice,” asserts All-Nutrient Artistic Team Member Frances London DuBose. “Black hair can be very harsh as can neon colors.” As a general rule of thumb bronze or yellow skin tones and medium or dark eyes look wonderful in copper and warm browns and light complexions with a bluish tone and darker or brighter eye colors can wear darker colors like black and mahogany.
  • Hair Health “The single biggest obstacle in creating a new color is the current health, or lack of health, of the hair,” says Keith Ferguson, All-Nutrient Regional Educator. “Healthy hair can undergo virtually any color change, including using bleach and higher-lift colors. For those with damaged hair, now is not the time for highlights or drastic changes. An accomplished colorist will give you the best options that will not only get your hair back into condition, but will provide you with the best color techniques.”
  • Color Duration “Semi-permanent color is non-peroxide, demi-permanent has a low-volume and permanent uses a 20-volume developer,” explains DuBose about the technicalities of color choices. So, semi-permanent color cannot lighten hair, and the color will last through about six to 12 shampoos. Demi-permanent can lighten the color a little and deposit color so it lasts a bit longer—about 12 to 26 shampoos. Permanent color is just that—you’ve got it until it grows out.

Lucy Liu

OO
From Charlie’s Angels to Elementary, we’ve had a crush on Lucy Liu’s long, brunette mane forever. 

Whether she wears it sleek and straight or with waves and curls along the ends, Lucy’s deep brunette hue is the style icing on her mane style. With very subtle deep brown highlights woven through the almost-raven shade, she’s every womans’ brunette idol.
