The ombre hair colour has been a popular choice for a while now, and this stunning one in particular is bound to get you tons of compliments. If you want to go super light, choose a dirty blonde for the middle section of your hair length and an out-and-out blonde for the ends. Doesn’t this look spectacular?

4. Ravishing in red

When Shilpa Shetty Kundra went the red way, many of us felt the urge to make a hair appointment right away to emulate her hair colour. So, it’s no wonder we couldn’t help but add her picture to this list. You can make this different by adding some light brown highlights as well, to make this one a winning look.

If you don’t want to experiment too much with your tresses, opt for a shade just one or two lighter than your brown hair and have your hairstylist add multiple streaks of it to your mane. This might be a tad bit understated, but it’s definitely a look to take inspiration from.

6. Sunkissed

If you’re into the entire hair colour scene, you’ve definitely heard of the balayage technique. Here, any shade lighter than your base colour is applied free-hand onto the hair. This looks more natural and gives the hair a layered and lovely look. Give it a shot!
