Blonde Hair Highlights for Brunette

Women need to take care of when they are dyeing their hair. Harsh chemicals can damage the hair and skin, so you should always read the label before using a new product. Light brunette hair colors will normally accept blonde highlights quite well; however, it can be harder to apply dye to darker shades.

To get light blonde highlights in dark brunette hair, you may need to bleach your hair first. Always get a professional stylist to help you with the bleach. Leaving bleach on your hair for too long can cause the hair to become brittle and snap. This will leave your hair in a real mess. Therefore, we have created a list of some of the best brunette hairstyles with blonde coloring.
