When it comes to light brown and dark blonde shades, anything but ashy tones are usually considered undesirable, and with good reason. Warm shades at these levels are often orangish and brassy, but the best solution isn’t always to go for charcoal and silver tones. Cool colors aren’t flattering on a lot of people, especially in the summer when skin tone tends to be a bit more pigmented. A soft neutral-warm tone like the one pictured above is the perfect solution. The soft golden-khaki hue feels luxurious and soft, and warm but not in the least bit brassy.
