Published on Apr 03, 2020

COVID-19 is casting an air of uncertainty on Ramadan as well as the upcoming Eid celebrations. But that doesn't mean you can't brighten up the mood with a spanking new hair colour! 

You can still plan for house-visiting as long as the number of people in the house is less than 10 so if you're looking for a reason to refresh your hair colour. Liven up the spirits with these 10 colour inspiration ideas.

1. Cool Mocha Brown 


Mocha brown isn't the most exciting but it sure is a glorious combo with tanned skin.

The cool brown shade gives a nice contrast for tanned skin as it gives your complexion a brighter glow.

Pair it with natural curls and you will look simply stunning. 

2. Warm Auburn Brown 


If your skin tone is a little warmer, you can consider trying warmer shades of brown such as brown with a hint of auburn or burgundy in it.

It looks particularly stunning on warm skin as it makes yellow undertones look creamier!

The best part about this colour is the budget required; as this is a single-tone hair colour, you don't have to spend a fortune on it. In fact, there are a number of top hair salons offering this hair colour at less than $100 for all hair lengths. What a bargain!

3. Blonde Highlights


If your budget is a little higher, we would highly recommend you to go for blonde highlights.

Adding blonde highlights to a darker base emphasizes the colour of your eyes and gives your hair that gorgeous dimension to uplift your overall look.

You can choose to go for thinner highlights or thicker balayage highlights that are more obvious depending on the vibe you are intending to achieve.

The placement of the highlights is crucial particularly for ladies with natural curls. If placed correctly, the highlights can bring the best out from the gorgeous springy 3A / 3B curls.

The gradual tone change from dark to lighter browns at the ends of the hair helps bring attention to your beautiful tanned skin.

Adding a hint of Magenta can make the brown pop while still not being too bright that it darkens your complexion.

6. Purple Colour Blocks


If you prefer to go full on purple, consider colouring different sections of hair with different tones of purple.

Silver hair on tan skin looks really wonderful particularly if your skin has an olive undertone.

You do however have to put on quite a bit of makeup to avoid your face looking a little "washed-out" by the grey silver colour.
