When it comes to color trends, brunettes can sometimes feel left out. Their hue isn’t as flashy as red or blonde, but it is precisely because of its subtlety that brown hair is such a great place for creativity. Brown is made by mixing the three primary colors—red, yellow, and blue—and varying the proportions creates a nearly infinite variety of tones. The color shown above—on the lovely Jessica Biel—has a high proportion of warmth, which gives it a golden-red shine that’s softened with an ashy overlay.
