Light caramel is a more sheer golden shade on the spectrum and works well with warm complexions and brown eyes. Steer clear of this colour if you have a fairer/pinker complexion. This colour is used mainly for balayage and ombre.
This is a deeper, red-based brown shade and gives off a stunning vibe when it is lighter. This is one shade that works for every skin tone. If your hair is naturally brown, try warming it up with this shade.
This shade is a cool, natural, beige shade of brown that works well as a transition shade for highlights and other hair techniques. It will look brilliant as a global colour for people with light eyes.
This shade is a beautiful combination of gold, light brown and red to create a sort of sun-kissed vibe for your hair. This shade is again used widely for highlights, but it could work as a global colour as well, if you are the experimental type.
For someone who would like to go lighter with their hair colour but want to keep away from the red/gold tones, this cool-toned brown with grey accents is ideal. A subtle balayage or global would work wonders especially for people with light brown eyes.
A crowd favourite this is a dark, close to black shade. This shade is the ideal base for most hair looks, and is perfect for those who would like the dark look without looking like a chalkboard with jet black hair.
