  • Update your style for 2013 with these on-trend colours and cuts

    If you have brunette hair, you should take advantage of your natural beauty and shake-up your style with an enhanced colour or cut.

    Think brunette means boring? Think again! Brunette hairstyles are so versatile and brown hair looks great cut short, in an updo or worn long and loose.

    Change the look of your current brunette hairstyle with glossy multi-tonal hues, just like Kate Middleton. Adding reddish or deeper brown to your natural hair can warm mature features and knock years off your look. The new hair colouring trick that insiders and beauty experts love is balayage – a sweeping technique that gives hair a natural sun-kissed look.

    Going grey, just like the Duchess? Add some blonde low-lights to your brunette hairstyle to keep your natural-looking colour for a little bit longer. And if all else fails and your hair appointment falls through, try Color Wow Root Cover Up to hide your grey in an instant! Available in four shades (blonde, light brown, medium brown and dark brown) and including pigments that adhere to your hair without stickiness, this is a super-safe way to conceal those pesky grey hairs.

    And if you just fancy a small change, but don’t want to do anything drastic, why not try adding a fringe? A blunt fringe is very youthful and looks especially great on thick, straight hair. You could also try adding layers or even extensions to your brunette hairstyle – it’s just a small change but one that can completely alter your look in an instant.

    Or maybe you just need some inspiration for a new updo for a special occasion. Updos are so versatile – they can be classy and elegant or fun and relaxed, depending on the style you’re after.
