Published on Oct 03, 2019

When thinking of changing your hair colour, some ladies try to steer clear of brown because this colour has earned a reputation for being mundane. This, however, is a misunderstanding and here's why we think so.

1. Brown hair is easy to match

Unlike vibrant colours, you don't have to worry about your makeup not complementing your hair.

Even the Duchess Kate Middleton wears her hair brown. Given that A-listers are flaunting brown locks, one thing is for sure - brown hair is here to stay and is slaying the hair game.

3. Brown hair is perfect for a subtle change 

Subtle or striking, the choice is yours.

Those looking to change their hair colour, without being drastic, usually go for brown tones as it's considered a safe colour that you will unlikely regret dyeing your hair.

4. Brown hair is flattering on all skin tones

As much as we love pastel hues, galaxy hair, unicorn hair, rainbow hair, and so on, these colours don't look flattering on all skin tones. With the endless possibilities of brown hair, you won't be hard-pressed to find a shade that suits you.

Whether you are light skinned, olive-skinned or of darker tones, you can find a brown hue that flatters you.
