60 Chocolate Brown Hair Color Ideas for Brunettes

Prev1 of 60Next

Vibrant chocolate hues remain in the mainstream from season to season. No wonder, they are of the same importance to brunettes and girls with medium brown hair as platinum or strawberry blonde to blondes. The palette of chocolate shades varies from milk chocolate with warm red notes to the cool bittersweet one. Commonly we attribute to the chocolates all the sweet and delicious browns, such as mocha, hot cocoa, truffle brown, chocolate cherry, brown sugar, espresso, sweet cola, etc. Chocolate hair looks classy, dramatic and occasionally a little bit strict. Even men unconsciously believe that women with chocolate hair are more serious, trustworthy and loyal. That’s why dark-haired ladies happen to hold top positions much oftener than lightheaded blondes. However, a chocolate brunette can easily look very feminine and romantic once she curls her delicious locks or shape them into a chic updo. Since chocolate palette is rather broad and versatile, even most blondes can afford it.

The Right Hue of Chocolate Brown Hair

The choice of the right hue depends on your skin undertone (warm/cool) and your personal preferences: some women prefer chocolate tones with a reddish tint, others try to achieve noble cold shades. With the right choice of hue, chocolate color refreshes your face and makes it look younger.

According to the four-season typology that suggests creating your image around a defined color palette that brings out the natural tones of your appearance, women with warm golden undertone of skin, belonging to the autumn colortype, will look great with chocolate hair hues, bearing a warm reddish sheen. And ladies with cool or olive skin undertones (summer or winter colortype) should try to achieve deep velvety hues without any warm red tints. Normally these are the shades such as hot or black chocolate. As for the “spring girls” with clear warm skin undertone and natural light golden blonde or strawberry blonde hair, chocolate hues are not their best choice, since a “spring” face is going to look a kind of washed out in such a rich vibrant frame.

Chocolate hair harmonizes the best with tanned skin and green, hazel or brown eyes. However, keeping in mind all the variety of chocolate hues, it would be fair to say that almost any woman can select her most flattering chocolate shade. There are fantastic examples of rich chocolate hair, complimenting fair skin with cool undertone and clear blue or blue-grey eyes. Such looks appear highly contrasting and eye-catching, but remember to make a start from something that is given to you by nature. How to choose the right hue?
