Dark, cocoa-hued brown may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about spring hair color, but the deep shade is gorgeous paired with pastels. A rich dark brown is a great way to add shine to your strands, to make them appear thicker, and to give your hair a rest before you start adding summer highlights. Get the formula for this gorgeous shade and tips on application in the style notes. –– Laura Martin 

Application: For rich results that won’t damage hair use a demi-permanent line like Goldwell Colorance. Simply apply the formula below, roots to ends, to freshly washed and towel-dried hair and process for 30 minutes.
