With many models and actresses using different hair colors in different movies, ramp shows and performances, practically everyone around is considering changing their hair color to fall in line with these glorious stars. Brunette hair styles are very popular on the red carpet these days and for good reason!

Brunette hair shines in every light and goes well with just about any skin tone. You can add dimension to brunette hair with chestnut and milk chocolate tones on the mid-lengths and ends. A pearl black or a deep brunette is a luxurious color women dye for because it is blindly shiny and incredibly healthy looking.

Either way, this luminescent brunette hairstyle has a way of framing your face, no matter what facial shape you posses.

Mandy Moore with a Stunning Brunette BobStunning Brunette Bob
Mandy Moore is a stunning brunette and this lovely layered bob cut with full bangs is the perfect look for her dark hue.

There are many kinds of bob and if your face shape and facial features could not confidently pull off the short bob, a great alternative would be the medium length bob.

This kind of bob falls just a few millimeters beyond the chin and it does not go farther than the collarbone. If the bob reaches the shoulders, it is considered as the long hair bob.

Mandy's hairstyle is simple and easy to style and is well suited to thick hair types and longer face shapes.

Important Tips for Hair Color

Whatever hair color you choose, consult your hairstylist, and before you make a final decision, try out the color in small portions on your hair. If it looks good then take the plunge. And oh by the way a basic tenet is that if you have to wear more make up than before after you color your hair, then you have the wrong hair color.

A proper hair color should highlight your skin tone bring it alive and glowing. On the other hand, if you have made the wrong choice you will probably look tired and washed out. Professional hairstylists too agree that the most problematic part of the entire process is determining the right skin tone.

In fact most of us have undertones that are subtle and tricky and difficult for even the professional eye to determine. Just as the face shape is important for you to choose a perfect hairstyle, similarly determining the skin tone is a must for finding out the right hair color that adds a sparkle to your looks.
