Sometimes, the most beautiful brown is also the simplest one: the no-bleach matte brown hair colour.
It is cheap and doesn't even damage your hair much since no bleaching is required, leaving your hair looking healthy and shiny afterward! Call us boring but this is still one of our favorite brown color styles yet.
Want to add a bit of dimension while still looking naturally beautiful? Babylights is probably the right style for you. Babylights are delicate highlights created using a very fine hair color technique to mimic the subtle, dimensional hair color seen on children's hair. They look natural and sun-kissed yet gives your hair that extra something.
Babylights often require bleaching and look especially gorgeous on dark hair. It makes your curls stand out you also don't have to worry about getting a touch up regularly as you won't experience that awkward growing out phase with babylights.
Straight hair or curly hair, there's no type of hair that babylights won't look good on!
Wanting something more obvious but still natural looking? Highlights will always be a classic. If you like a more obvious accent, this is great and will definitely feel worth the money to you. Stick to the subtle and classy look by avoiding chunky highlights.
When will the ombre trend fade? Not so soon apparently. We're not complaining because it's a fun way to incorporate two colours (or more) in your hair! Ombré is a seamless gradation from darker to lighter.
Do it right and it can even look like your favourite coffee drink: Frappucino Hair!
You don't even have to worry about retouch if your stylist kept your natural hair colour as the base.
Meet Sombré! Ombré's shy and subtle sister - the much softer version of ombré. According to an Aveda colour expert, "The key is to use more colours; taking the darker hue found at the roots and subtly weaving it through the lengths of the hair to ultimately create less of an abrupt contrast from roots to ends."
As hair trends are moving towards the more natural look, many people are opting for balayage instead of ombre. It is a more subtle and seamless transition, almost like a mix of babylights and ombre.
This makes for smooth gradients that are fun but suitable for the corporate world.
While it can look subtle, it can look really bright and radiant as well, depending on your desired design.
We're especially in love with this Tiger Eye Balayage Hair Colour by Yang from Gene by Ginrich Hair Salon.
For a more natural look, you can go for warmer tones as they usually match Asian hair colours well. Find your right shade by doing your research before heading to the salon and speaking to the stylist.
As you can notice, balayage starts very soft and close to the roots, leading to a thicker highlight at the ends of the hair.
If you're on the other end of the spectrum and prefer cool, ashy tones, greyish brown is a great option too.
It does require bleach but with help of the brown base, it can last longer than other light colours.
You can also add an ombre to it so that it doesn't draw attention away from your face too much.
Who says that brown needs to be ashy all the time?
Warm chocolate browns may just be what you need to warm up your facial complexion and give your face some colour.
It doesn't have to be too red or warm. Your stylist can customize it for the warm brown to start at lower sections so that the colour isn't too warm for your taste.
If you DO want more colour, here are some options.
Purple and brown go really well together because their undertones match. When purple fades, it turns brownish so it is easy to maintain without looking too brassy.
This combination is so popular that it has sparked off a new name: Mushroom Hair!
We're not talking about the shape of the mushroom but the hue of purple-brown you see under the mushroom.
We love how the hair can be worn straight or curly depending on your preferred style!
Similarly, green matches with brown, specifically ash brown.
You can wear it like ombre above
Or hide it beneath the brown streaks for a multidimensional look.
If you don't want vibrant colours, go for a muted metallic brown. The shine will make your hair look extra shiny and smooth.

A level up from the metallics, you can go full on silver with lots of brown undertones to keep the natural vibes.
Blonde hair can tend to look a little yellowish and not suit most Asians but it's hard to resist jumping on the blonde wagon when famous celebrities like Kim Kardashian seem to have tried it at least once. If you really want to find out if blondes have more fun but not risk ending with a blond 'do that makes you look washed out, consider brown based blondes like this bronde.
Reddish browns are pretty common and tend to resemble copper. While not everyone would like to wear copper hair, you can determine if it's the brown for you by opting for an ombre style to test it out. How about a bronde + copper ombre inspired look like this below?
