Brunettes Can Own Eye-Popping Pastel Hair Too…

Rainbow hair first started hitting the streets in 2014, where a few select women took some bold strides to rock unforeseen colorful tresses in everyday life.

Since then, pastel hair has progressed to a commonly adored expression for those living in pop-life, where you can see women from NYC to China flaunting their auburn-yellow hair, pale-purple tresses, or jean-hue manes down city streets.

Animated hair in the rainbow trend class can work well with all hair types, but it’s particularly well-liked among those with lighter hair textures. This is because blonder locks set the foundation for electric color that seems to pop the eyes of onlookers.

Hence, brunettes may feel a bit desirous of this advantage hair perk, which may seem hopeless to achieve with a darker ‘do.

No worries you brunette babe! There is a now-viral, rainbow-brunette trend going on that produces the same eye-popping effect on darker hair when integrated with naturally-dark roots.

Know first that all hair tones need to be pre-faded for rainbow hue application. In the world of coloring, there is a one to ten color wheel that assigns numbers to a person’s natural hair tone—one for dark-brunette, and ten for platinum-blonde.

This means brunettes will need to raise their natural tone to a at least a six on the color helm in order to get some eye-popping, brown-pastel action going. Further, the pastel hue you choose will also determine how light you’ll need to go.

Are you feeling intrigued? Let’s look at some amazing Fall/Winter rainbow hues for sassy brunettes that cater to all skins tones.
