If you think that brunette means plain brown, then how about golden brown… (think Jennifer Aniston). That gorgeous sunkissed golden look can be easily yours at Next International! By blending some carefully placed caramel and honey highlights we can create depth and add a glimmer of summer to your brunette locks … plus, you still get to keep your shine because the use of bleach is minimal. If your hair is naturally wavy or curly then this one is a “must have” for your inner surfer girl!
Mahogany is a really polished look which works well on all hair types. Our Next International stylists would give you a rich chocolate base first before adding a hint of cherry red in strategically placed slices. The rich chocolate is blended with the cherry to create a marbled effect which looks simply stunning. By adding some layers we can create added flair in your newly coloured hair or go for a sleek bob to really show off the shine.
No it’s not just a coffee it’s a hair colour too! Espresso looks fabulous on most skin colours but especially on Asian or dark skin. Ideally suited for very dark brunettes, your Next International stylist can lighten your hair just a few shades to achieve the Espresso look. This makes it a very natural looking colour which is also easy to maintain. For an added wow factor, try a red lipstick or hair accessory to really make this colour pop.
Chestnut is a gorgeous shade which suits hazel or deep brown eyes and flatters most skin types. Chestnut is a warm colour which we can achieve by applying an all over coour or simply by adding auburn tones to your brunette for a more subtle look. Chestnut is set to be a hot color for Spring 2016 which can be teamed up with floral fashions for a super pretty look.
Ever looked at a raven’s wing and seen an almost rainbow sheen in the black? Welcome to raven brown. Raven brown is a very dark brown (almost black) which is the ultimate colour for a high shine look. Unlike some other brunette shades, this one is achieved with an all over colour but if your hair is already dark you’re your regrowth will be minimal. This is a really polished look so make sure you speak to our stylists about choosing the right products to emphasise your shine and condition. Add in a very blunt cut… a fringe if you’re brave and a patent leather band and you will be turning heads all across the Gold Coast!
