Every 20 minutes a blonde woman dyes her locks brown, leaving her fair-haired friends behind.
Okay, we might have made that statistic up, but when you check out the hottest fashion blogs this season, you’ll invariably see a blonde celeb jumping ship as she dusts off her mirror and regains her senses.
What’s the case for being a brunette?
First off, dark hair looks great on EVERYONE. Period. And lest you think brown hair is boring, check out our top reasons to make brunette your crowning glory:
1. Bronde Balayage Lets You Have The Best of Both Worlds
It’s true, you’re no longer forced to choose between blonde and brunette. Made famous by Gisele Bündchen, “bronde” is the best of both worlds, radiating a warm, springtime hue that is quickly becoming a timeless classic.
2. Warmer Skintones Benefit From Brunette’s Spicier Shades
Unlike bottle-blondes who often struggle against their hair’s natural tendency to swing towards brassy or ashy, brunettes have total control over the warmth of their shade and can custom tailor hints of cinnamon and spice to compliment any skin tone.
3. Brunettes Shine Thanks To A Variety Of Glazes
Because glazes are ammonia and peroxide free, they won’t lift or lighten hair color. Instead, glazes combine mild dyes and shine boosters to increase the depth and vitality of brunette hair colors, leaving your mane full of shine and looking like it’s fresh from the salon for days on end.
4. Brunettes Can Go From Edgy To Classic Without Damaging Strands
Brunette shades are super versatile; you can look chic one day and keep things classy the next. Shiny and bold locks can swirl with definition and glam when long and loose, or be pinned up to appear prim and proper. Worn either way, rich chocolate hues make anyone appear more confident.
5. Being Brunette Is Easier On Your Wallet
Yup, believe it or not, it is much cheaper to have brown hair versus any other hair color available! That’s because being brunette makes roots easier to get away with. Plus, brown-haired gals can find color matches much faster, and they can dye our hair less frequently. If ‘winning’ was still a relevant hashtag, I would be tempted to use it here.
And, If Those Glorious Reasons Weren’t Enough
It turns out that there’s actual statistical data to support the statement that brunettes have it best: A study by Garnier revealed that brunettes are twice as likely as their blonde counterparts to earn more than $65K a year.
