This hair color looks like it hit the beach all summer, which feels exactly right for "sunlight brunette."
Even the darkest of mocha loves a little honey. This mane by Texas-based stylist Charlie Price is like an edgier Goldilocks.
Turn the brightness all the way up on your sandy brown hair with all-over caramel blonde.
Subtle Caramel Touches
Make it the most low-maintenance with touches of warm golden brown at the very ends of your brunette strands, like seen here by colorist Justin Anderson.
Golden "Money Piece"
Say hello to the "money piece," which is the face-framing lock of hair that naturally lightens in the sun. A glowy strand of gold to frame each side of your face instantly brightens your complexion.
