Hair colour ideas

Hey! I have dark chestnut-y coloured hair with quite pale, olive skin -looking to change my hair colour but would love thoughts on what colour/highlights/lowlights you would opt for (that don’t wash pale people out)?

Maybe an auburn brown? Ombré? Caramel? Or even darker?

Thanks so much! X

Oo it’s hard without seeing your hair in person but there’s so much you can get done now!

We wrote about some of the techniques here:

Balyage may be really nice for you to bring about some warmth? Definitely seek advice from your hairdresser first though and save lots of inspo!

It’s funny you say that because as soon as I went back to my natural dark/brown colour - i felt like I looked so washed out too and started having to wear a lot more bronzer and blush! ha

I think there’s something about having blonde/caramel-y colour put in that somehow actually warms things up complexion wise. I’m obviously not a hairdresser but have spent so much time in hair salons getting my own hair done and think a caramel-y balayage + a face frame will look really nice if you want a bit of a change.

Or perhaps its worth doing a gloss or tint and warming up the brown in your hair. Before doing anything deffo have a consultation with a hairdresser, it’s always so helpful x
