Famous Brunette's

There has always been an equally strong sex appeal between the hot blond, sexy red heads and the sultry brunettes. And since most blonds and red heads are created with a magical bottle of peroxide at the very least the sexy brunette's appeal is the real deal. Next to black, brown hair may be the most common color but don’t be fooled into thinking that brunettes are boring.

The list of famous Hollywood brunette’s could fill a page. From the iconic Elizabeth Taylor, Jane Russell and Sophia Loren to current stars, Demi Moore, Cindy Crawford, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Sandra Bullock, Megan Fox, Jennifer Garner, Mandy Moore, Penelope Cruz, Eva Longoria and Angelina Jolie to list a few. All are perfect examples of the universal sex appeal of brunette hair.

With advancements in 21st century hair color chemistry the choices are many. From rich chocolates, caramel and chestnuts hues, to sable, walnut, mahogany and golden browns, brunette hair color has never looked so good. Brunette hair offers a mysterious look with lots of rich texture and compliments most skin tones and facial features depending on the lightness or darkness of the shades. For those with “fair skin tones” opt for honey and copper to warm up a light complexion. Medium skin tones will look best in chestnut shades. Those with darker skin tones should opt for a more "pure" brunette like rich sable or chocolate brown for a knockout sultry effect. If you're having trouble spotting a brunette hair color you think will work for you, try flipping through some hairstyling or celebrity magazines. Many celebrities have switched to brunette for its deep, rich look. Cut out pictures of the brunette colors you like and take them to a hair stylist. A salon colorist can point you in the right direction with results that last and look amazing.

Brunette hair looks better when there is not one color but multi-tones with highlights, lowlights, or tint-backs to bring kind of a mixture together with the hairstyle. There are a wide variety of brunette hair color combinations that go very well with many hairstyles. To add some glamor to a brunette hue, try adding bronze highlights around the face to complement your skin tones and add dimension to your color. Highlights in golden blond or a light copper red add instant pizazz to brunette’s skin tones. Brunette hair color can fade and look drab. To keep your color looking rich, invest in a color replenishing shampoo for brunettes to boost your brown every time you use it. If you’re shopping around for a color fresher shampoo you’ll no doubt be confronted with a wide choice of brands and prices. For best results ask a professional after all who knows hair better then a hair colorist.
