Understanding brown hair

Brown hair is in now a days and there are tons of different browns from light, medium to dark brown.
The main focus is to know if your going for golden reddish brown or cool/ ash brown …

Picture above shows medium to dark brown but with red undertone, which in the hair dye box will be the brown with chestnut or worm hair color.

As for the above picture it’s medium brown but with ash or cool tone, so it will be written in the dye box ash brown or cool brown whether it’s light, medium or dark brown.
So to get the exact color, bleaching your hair if it’s dark then coloring with box dye
But if your hair is light and your going brown ( darker) then you have to make sure that your hair is with reddish hue if your coloring to worm browns or ash base if your going cool browns.

Example:
Black or dark brown hair and want to achieve chestnut brown ( red base)
To do: bleach hair with white powder bleach and developer then use the box dye desired 🙂
Note: developer usage depends on the result of brown wanted to achieve, light brown 30 vol, medium to dark brown 20 vol.

If you want to get ash brown from dark hair as well,
To do: bleach hair with blue powder bleach and developer then color using box dye that says ash brown or cool brown whether it’s light, medium or dark ash brown
Note: developer usage depends on the result of brown wanted to achieve, light brown 30 vol, medium to dark brown 20 vol.

Now that it’s clear I’ll post some reddish brown hair color and ash browns just to get more ideas and clear thoughts on brown levels
Cheers
