Raving Beauty's

Exotic, Romantic and Seductive are words used to describe brunettes. Brunettes throughout the ages have always had a special place; also some of the most famous "blondes" in the past century were in fact brunettes: Jean Harlow, Marilyn Monroe, and Bridget Bardot not to mention the hundreds of them today.
At first, one may think that making someone a brunette is a simple task for a colorist to do. But the truth is that making a good, rich brunette can be very challenging. The most beautiful brunettes are when they have variations of browns, caramels, honey tones, running through from light to medium shades.

I suggest, making the base (Tint) more of a cooler blue base and add the warmth with fine slices or fine weaves of hi-lites. We often hear my tint is dull or it’s washed out, well this is because we focus on perfecting rich chocolate bases on already warm natural color, (all humans are warm, and chocolate is blue based ) even the ones that consider themselves mousy have either red or gold natural remain pigment, hence why I suggest to add hi-lites or low-lites of warmer shades to blend into the desired base (Tint) instead of in your base formula.
The great thing about brunette hair color is that it has a wide assortment of fantastic shades, and by adding a little this or that into a formula can make Jambalaya Soup, keep it natural and simple and add hints of sparkles.
