9 Hair Rules Every Brunette Should Know

There are a ton of hair hacks out there catered to the blondes of the world, with the implicit understanding that brown hair is somehow lower-maintenance and more self-explanatory. However, there are actually a few things every brunette should know about brown hair that seriously help like crazy when it comes to personal style.

I've personally had almost every hair color known to man — from my natural light brown, to blonde, to red, to really red, to black, to everything in between and back again, and I can tell you first hand that there are just as many tips and tricks I utilize for brown hair as when I have the more showy reds and beachy blondes. I've found that my makeup and hair style choices are prone to change depending on the specific shade of brown I choose, and that there are just as many things I need to consider when choosing a particular look when my hair is brown versus when it's a more traditionally "high maintenance" color.

If you're thinking of switching over to brown hair from another color, or already are a brunette and just want to amp up your look, here are nine tips you should know.

1. Remember That Skin Tone Is Important

According to Marcy Cona, Creative Director of Color & Style at Clairol, skin tone is a super important factor when deciding on what specific shade you should choose, no matter what your color. "Your skin tone is the framework to your hair, so you want to make sure your skin tone and hair color complement one another. The right combination of skin tone and hair color shade can define your look." This means that if your skin tone is cool versus warm, you'll want to choose a shade of brown that compliments that specific tone, and vise-versa. Above is a super helpful video from TheMakeupChair YouTube channel for finding your skin tone.

2. Consider Your Makeup

The thing about hair and makeup is that it's basically a visual art, and in a lot of ways it all comes down to complementary colors; you probably wouldn't repaint your bedroom without considering if it matches the accent pieces you already have and if you'll need to buy new ones, right? The same holds true for your hair and makeup. In a piece for In Style, celebrity colorist Mai Quynh recommended sticking "to pinky-nudes, reds, and berry shades on the lips, and use a light bronzer to warm up the skin," if you're a darker brunette. And in the same piece, makeup artist Amy Nadine suggested making sure you accentuate your eyes. This will make sure your features won't get overpowered by your darker hair.

3. Focus On Your Skin

In a piece on the best makeup for your hair in Shape, makeup artist Marissa Nemes noted that, “youthful, healthy skin is gorgeous on brunettes,” since it often creates a contrast with the skin and draws more attention to your face. She specifically recommended using a tinted moisturizer and following it up with a gentle bronzer for that "glowing" look.

4. Know That Blush Is Your Friend

Nemes also noted the importance of using blush, especially if you're a fair-skinned brunette, as otherwise you can easily look washed out. She suggested rosy tones, as they generally look super natural with brown hair.

5. Be Careful With Extremes

In a piece for Allure, celebrity colorist Marie Robinson said that the most flattering shades of brown are usually the natural ones kicked up a notch — usually within just a shade or two of your natural color. "It's about enhancing, not extremes," Robinson said. I personally love more intense contrasts when it comes to hair and skin shades and think it can look totally amazing, so if the natural look isn't your thing, I say more power to you!

6. Remember The Importance Of Cut

Just like you should be considering things like makeup and skin tone, Robinson said you should also think about cut when working with your specific shade of brown. For example, if you have a shorter, choppier hair style you'll likely want to go with a softer shade of brown so that the cut and color don't overpower your face, and if you have a longer style you could consider going darker.

7. Create Contrast With Your Clothes

Senior Editor Kat Collings at WhatToWear.com noted that color contrast with your clothes looks great on darker haired people, as it makes both your hair and your outfit pop. She suggested going for bold colors like hot pinks and canary yellows, and investing in some solid white and cream pieces.

8. Protect Yourself

It's not just blondes who need to protect their hair from damage and fading — brunettes — especially color-treated brunettes, also benefit from specialized products for their color. Beauty expert Julyne Derrick over at theAbout.com Style section recommended a weekly conditioning treatment, letting your hair air dry as much as possible to protect it from heat, and using products that protect against color-fading.

9. Know That Yes, You Can Get Highlights Too

And again, highlights are not just for blondes! Derrick noted that a few face-framing highlights on dark hair work to brighten and soften the face, or a few around your whole head will prevent the color from seeming too monotoned. Check out the above video gallery of different highlighted brunette looks for inspiration.

While brunette hair can definitely be low-maintenance as compared to certain other hair color options, that definitely doesn't mean it's nomaintenance. And knowing a few of these brown-hair-basics will just ensure you love your color all the more.
