Brunette hair colouring: which shade of brown to choose if you have pale skin?

If you have pale skin, you can still opt for a shade of brunette. However, certain precautions are needed to avoid an overly pasty complexion. We take a closer look at all of the brunette shades which will enhance your fair skin tone.

Chocolate brown to enhance pale skin

With its golden highlights, enhanced by a hint of mahogany, chocolate brown is extremely flattering for porcelain complexions, no matter what your eye or base colour. This deliciously natural shade will give you a captivating look.

Light brown for those with pale skin who wish to go brunette gradually

Similar to chestnut brown, this shade of brunette is ideal for women with a fair complexion who wish to darken their hair without a radical change. An easy colour to live with, light brown is full of character due to its depth-enhancing luminous highlights.

Mahogany brown to revive rosy complexions

Brightened up by a hint of red, mahogany brown enlivens your locks with fiery, vibrant shades. This daring colour, sprinkled with touches of red, perfectly suits porcelain skin tones as it illuminates your complexion whilst drawing attention to your eyes.

Copper brown to boost your complexion’s radiant glow

Enhanced with shades of orange, copper brown illuminates pale skin tones. With this shade, give your milky-white complexion a radiant glow and enhance your hairstyle. Anyone can opt for this vibrant colour, whether their base colour is ultra-dark or extremely fair.
