A fresh breeze is blowing through our hair with the changing of seasons – in the form of cool brown hues. And they are incredibly multifaceted: from ashy light to silvery dark brown, there is something to suit every type and taste. One thing we can promise: these cool colours are guaranteed not to leave you cold!

  • Natural and classy in one, discreet yet exciting: brown is a more versatile hair colour than many may imagine. Thanks to countless shades, colour depths, gloss and reflections, brown is never just simply 'brown'. Just think of the aromatic coffee versions from espresso to mocha to cappuccino. Think of earth, wood and autumn leaves. Of chocolate, caramel candy and cinnamon buns... What's your flavour? Schwarzkopf hair expert Armin Morbach for instance raves about cappuccino: 'It is a rather smoky hue with ashy blonde nuances, a very rich colour.' The pro has chosen this nuance for good reason: the cool brown hue is absolutely trendy.

    Cool brown – these hair colours are making us hot! We present the most attractive examples in the gallery:

    Brown Winter Hair: Attractive Mix

    Rich mocha with a dash of cinnamon – an irresistible ombré mix that looks perfect in medium to long hair. The base colour is a deep brown with a flowing transition to a lighter hue at around ear height. To make the colour flow appear even more natural, the hair is cut in layers on the sides

    Brown Winter Hair: Everything Under Control

    To avoid stealing the show from the popular hair colour, accessories such as barrettes, elastics or hair bands should be demure and without frills. Simple bobby pins in shades of brown for instance are well suited to pin back certain sections, perhaps in a low side parting. You can quickly create a minimalist hairstyle that lets the cool brown hue get all the attention

  • Hairdos for Cool Brown Hues

    A natural hair colour such as brown goes best with simple and natural hairstyles: a low, loosely pinned chignon for instance, or undone waves. Straight hair draws attention to the hair colour. Wavy hair not only lends movement to the look but also to the hair colour, since light is reflected differently by various sections for visually appealing changes in the brown hue.

    Extra brilliance tip: Freshly coloured brown hair guarantees an especially intense gloss. Proper hair care supplies your brown with important nutrients for added radiance.
