#TeamCLEO Mane Makeover: How To Rock Ash Brown Hair

Choosing the right hair colour can be a life-crisis – especially if you’re a newbie like me.

In a nutshell: I never dyed my hair or considered it because of the commitment, special hair and constant touch-ups — so high maintenance and #RIPbankaccount. But this year, I decided to give it a go – with statement fiery red highlights a la Pretty Little Liars’ Aria Montgomery during her pre-A days.

While the red did made me feel like a bad-a$$… it just wasn’t me. So I continued searching for a natural-looking colour that had some edge.

Ash brown has turned out to be one of the hottest hair colour trends this year – just look at Emma Roberts and Taylor Hill rocking that shade on the red carpet and Instagram feeds.

What’s so great about ash brown? Well, hairstylists can create and control the colour and ash-intensity to suit your skin tone. Plus, the colour acts as a “balance” as this smokey hue helps brighten up your overall complexion.
