The 'Translucent Brown' Trend Is Adding Soft Dimension To Your Hair Color

If you're craving a new avenue to explore when it comes to switching up your brown locks but still remaining a brunette, the translucent brown trend may be just what you're looking for. A gentle hint of honey brown that seems to sift through darker pieces is what this look is all about, and the results are subtly eye-catching — reminiscent of the way light can catch your hair in just the right way at dusk.

There's a lot to love about this trend. The upkeep really couldn't be easier, and you'll feel as though you and your hair had the perfect beach day. "Imagine you have curtains in your house, thick chocolate velvet curtains – that's expensive brunette. The brown linen curtains, with light passing through, is softer, with not as much pigment saturation. It can read high and low in light versus having really stark color like you would with the expensive brunette," Sunnie Brook, Biolage global ambassador and celebrity stylist, told PopSugar. So, if your brunette locks are feeling a bit lackluster, it may be time to test out the translucent brown trend.

Subtle honey

These gentle, light brown ends give just the right dimension and really nail what the translucent brown trend is all about. Nothing too drastic, but the perfect subtle hint of light here and there. We could not be more enthusiastic about this easy, breezy pop of mellow color — a true winner in our book.

A touch of dimension

The translucent brown trend can also have a range. The color can be a fairly noticeable touch of dimension — or it can border on the barely sunkissed hint of gold we love. If you very much identify as a brunette and want to keep things that way while also experiencing the boost of a change, the translucent brown trend may be just the thing for you.

Gentle highlights

The translucent brown trend does have a lot in common with softer honey-colored highlights that add just the right amount of glow to your brown locks, and we love this vibe. There's a subtle mystery in this barely-there style that encompasses the chic, classic energy we love to see. After all, brown hair is so far from blah

On the slightly bolder side

While the trend is characterized by subtle and soft, we are also swooning over takes on this style that truly glimmer in the light. A hint of rich color here and there amidst your darker locks is the glowing contrast that truly has our hearts. While many trends breathe life back into brown hair, translucence is one we are truly celebrating.
