Mismatching we can get behind.
Think rocking blonde hair with dark eyebrows is a beauty faux pas? Think again! This bold and eye-catching look is one of the major trends of the moment, donned by celebrities and tastemakers alike. "We're reliving beauty and fashion trends from the 90's right now" says L'Oréal Professionnel artist Jason Backe. "That really strong brow, for instance, is part of what we are emulating today." Keep reading for four reasons why blonde hair and dark eyebrows are a winning combination.
Reason #1: Blonde Hair with Dark Eyebrows Is Striking
When you match your hair color to your eyebrows, the look is very natural and can, at times, look a bit washed out, especially when you pair light-colored hair with fair brows. When you contrast those colors - like with blonde hair and dark eyebrows - it draws immediate attention to your face - a benefit we're definitely loving! "Just make sure you have the confidence and personality to pull off a dramatic look," Backe warns. "If you are a wallflower, something like a bold brow is going to draw a lot of attention so you just need to be ready to make a statement when you walk into the room."
Reason #2: Anyone Can Pull Off Blonde Hair with Dark Eyebrows
Another reason we love the blonde hair with dark eyebrows trend is that anyone can try it! "Any woman can wear any color because there are variations in every skin tone," says Backe. "As with any kind of color choice - whether it's your hair or your brows - you just want to make sure that it's complementary." If you're not sure which shades to pair together, ask your colorist for recommendations.
Reason #3: You Can Control How Dramatic Blond Hair with Dark Eyebrows Looks
There are plenty of color variations to choose from when it comes to pairing blonde hair with dark eyebrows - which can help determine how intense the look will be - making this hair color trend a bit more inclusive for those who are seeking a color change without a ton of drama. "There's no rule for what's too dramatic or not," says Backe. "I think you can look really striking with platinum hair and jet black eyebrows. It just depends on your personal taste, and what is exciting and inspiring for you." Discuss your optimal look with your colorist. He or she can help dictate the best hues to match your taste.
Editor's Tip: If you're not ready to color your eyebrows, no worries! There's an eyebrow makeup product for that. By using an eyebrow pencil or mascara to test drive the blonde hair with dark eyebrows look, you won't have to commit to the season's hottest beauty trend until you're fully ready.
Reason #4: It's Easy to Maintain to Blonde Hair with Dark Eyebrows
Despite what you may think, maintaining color-treated hair doesn't have to be a headache. Backe recommends visiting a salon for a gloss treatment in between color services to keep your hair looking shiny and fresh, as well as feeling soft. He also recommends L'Oréal Professionnel's Vitamino AOX product range for protecting your hair color against UV rays. "Think about protecting your hair the same way you would protect your skin," Backe says. "When you're heading outside, keep your hair covered with a hat or sit under a beach umbrella."
