Hair Color Tip No. 2: Brunettes Can Get Highlights, Too

People usually associate highlights with blonde hair, but they work beautifully in brunette hair as well. Weaving in lighter washes of color into dark hair can help add definition and dimension.

This amazing hair color on Katherine McPhee is a great example of ombré color (see photos of 20 Amazing Ombre Hairstyles). You can get this gradient effect with the balayage technique. Find out what balayage is in this article.

If you love ombré color, you'll also love "bronde" hair color. Check out photos of "bronde" hairstyles. More on brown hair:
