86 Trendy Ash Brown Hair That Will Suit You

Ash Brown has been the hot colour trend in 2018. While some people are going for the bright and glossy rainbow and polished pastel-colour, the old-soul are going for the brunette brown shades. The Ash Brown Hair is a matte that is rather dull and not shiny. But you can apply various colouring techniques to make changes in the shine of the hair. The Ash Brown also won’t be able to complement all kinds of hair; few exceptions arises with the natural and artificial tones.


So what are the exceptions? The people with the cooler tones will go with the ash Brown as they tend to have the natural hair colour that will bring out the brownish hue but the warmer tone person tend to have the hair colour that will change the brown into a greenish tint. The calmer tone eyes and skin colour will also flatter the hue which won’t be with the warmer tone. But don’t worry warmer tone people can put the ash brown as highlights.

Another thing that decides about the ash brown being suitable on your tone is the colouring techniques.

The Balayage technique is done just by taking some strands of hair randomly into your hand and applying a hue to these strands, which should be a little shade lighter than the other. It creates a contrast of colour between the hairs that involve hair-colour and does not include the hair-colour. So, Ash Brown highlights are beautiful.

The Ombre technique creates a gradient look with the colours. You can have the ash brown to the hair below your ears to the end for Ombre. The Sombre method is same as Ombre, but instead of adding the colour just below the ear, we start from the root by gradually increasing with the tone matching the hair with slightly increasing the hue.

Some of the most stylish Ash Brown that the year has brought is below on the galleries.
