Kate Middleton. When it comes to brown locks, the Duchess reigns: 43 percent of colorists say their clients want to copy her warm chocolate hue.
Ask your colorist for: Milk chocolate base plus caramel highlights.
Looks awesome on: Just about everyone. With cool or warm skin, dark or light eyes, brown done right is universally flattering, White says. It looks insanely amazing with light eyes (lucky you, Kate) because the contrasting combo is pretty rare.
Tweak it if you have...
Freckles and light eyebrows: Warm medium brown will wash you out. Try espresso instead, so it's not mousy, Bossendorfer explains.
Superlight hair: When roots come in, it could look like thinning. Prepare for constant touch-ups, or do low-maintenance light-brown lowlights.
