Light brown hair is such a gentle, pretty color. Don't let it get bland! Toss in a few blond highlights to jazz things up. Mixing different shades of gold keeps your face looking bright, shows off your eyes and, best of all, lets your soft hair color get the attention it deserves.
Light brown hair looks good on almost everyone. Ensuring your hair matches your skin tone is crucial to keeping your light brown beautiful and your blond boisterous. Check your veins at the wrists near the palms. If they're blue, you're cool-toned. If they're green, you're warm-toned. The highlights you pick have to be cool or warm, too.
Honey shades are gorgeous, because there's an exact color for nearly every head. If you're cool, pick a pale honey color to weave in extra-fine strands at the temples. For warmer-skinned ladies, go for the gold and get a little chunkier. This is an amazing, subtle contrast with light brown hair. Honey highlights are sweet with all sorts of other blond shades, too, so you can get that buzz-worthy mane you crave.
Strawberry blond is just a little bit impish. Warm-skinned women can handle the reddish tone in light brown hair best, but if you're a cool customer and insist on a little strawberry delight, try a pinkish-blond hue. This can look really natural and beachy or a bit stylized and girly, depending on what you prefer. Mix strawberry-blond highlights with as many other blond shades you can handle for the best effect. The more you blend this shade, the more natural it will appear.
Platinum is a severe color on its own, but when you touch a few tresses with it, it's quite flattering. This is a major contrast, even with hair that's already a really light brown, but that's part of the fun. Platinum is definitely a cool tone, so leave it alone if you're caramel-skinned or ruddy. Platinum and pale honey look beautiful together against light brown.
Sandy blond could probably be mistaken for light brown in some cases. There is a difference, though -- and those little differences are what highlights are about! Sand-colored highlights can blend strawberry blond or platinum strands into the rest of your hair. They're natural-looking on almost all light brown heads. This is a tone that might appear on its own, even if you don't hit the actual sand that often. Keeping this blond close to your light brown hair is pretty and feminine.
