#18: Effortless Fall Ombre Brown Hair
Go for an extremely effortless fall ombré brown hair idea by Giovanna Rita, a colorist from Astoria, NY.
“I recommend this look to most women. I always suggest going a few shades lighter than their natural color so it gives them brown sun-kissed hair,” Rita mentions.
The best part about a long brown look is that it’s really for almost anyone with any hair color. It’s beyond low-maintenance since you only need to come into the salon at least twice a year. You can wear it year-round, it’s easy to take care of, and it looks great with almost any long hairstyle.
#20: Long Chestnut Waves with Highlights
Try a foil balayage painted on dark brown locks using Kevin Murphy Color. This idea is from hair artist Chris Brooke of Dulles, VA.
From the Kevin Murphy styling line, Brooke used Body.Builder that’s applied wet before the blowout.
Brooke continues, “I then used Anti.Gravity before curling each section vertically at the midshaft only. I also sprayed the hair lightly in three sections lightly with Shimmer/Shine, then ran my fingers and hands through.”
For at-home care, a Kevin Murphy Hydrate Wash and Rinse is a perfect product to use.
