Strawberry brown is the color refresh we can’t help but be obsessed with. With Kendall Jenner acting as the main inspo, this highly saturated hue is beautifully understated. As if you needed some convincing to take the plunge and adorn your mane in this springtime hue all year round, we reached out to Shvonne Perkins, Senior Educator at Madison Reed, for her expertise.
It’s a timeless shade

This shade sells because it can be striking and glamorous or have “It looks soft, natural, and boho. So many women have wanted to try reds, but the typical ‘dyed red’ hair scares some people off. Strawberry brunette (or blonde) is warm, inviting, and versatile,” Shvonne tells us at About the timeless look.
How to Get Strawberry Brown Hair Color
According to Shvonne, you can achieve the look whether you layer red over brunette or create a brunette layer over red locks. “Anyway, that tone just makes hair and skin sing,” she says. “What’s so striking about this shade is that it’s so great to look at with soft makeup and bronzer, or you can pop it out and look very old Hollywood with a simple eye and a red lip. It’s just pretty, and you’ll never notice that hair in a room. You can commit to it via permanent color or use a tinted mask with copper to layer your existing shade and flirt with that shade to see if it works with your skin. Madison Reed’s Zucca Color Therapy Mask is awesome because it has buildable results. The more often you use it, the more copper pigment you will see.
Best Strawberry Brunette Shades
So who can pull off this distinct color? “The answer to this question is surprising and remains stuck in beauty myth territory,” says Shvonne. “Strawberry shades are actually best for people who already have a bit of heat on their skin. I hear women say all the time, I can’t have golden or red tones because I already have the dewy skin and which I don’t want to add to it. Couldn’t be more wrong. Start looking at pictures of strawberry brunettes and you’ll see this common thread running through warm skin tones. It’s incredibly flattering,” he notes. her.” Strawberry blonde looks gorgeous on all skin tones, just find the perfect red for your undertones. For example, if you have olive skin, your ideal red probably has a slightly cooler purple flavor.
