Blonde hair with dark brows

One of the best ways to add an edge to a wholesome blonde colour is with a bold, dark brow, says Sarah Simpson.

The beauty rule has always been to keep your brows within a shade or two of your hair colour, but here at BeautyEQ we believe rules are made to be broken, so we're all about this beauty juxtaposition right now. 

Brows catapulted into the beauty spotlight a few years ago and they continue to reign supreme. A trend like this pays further homage by making them pack such a punch against lightened locks.

For those who have naturally fair brows, tinting or brow tattooing is a great option for getting depth of colour, or for the more non-committal, adopting a darker pencil or powder to fill in your brows will give more definition and structure, two things which work beautifully for this look.

The key to trying this trend is to experiment with different shades to find one that is perfect for you. Cooler blondes may prefer a cooler dark brown while a golden blonde may want to seek out a warmer brown to complement their colour.

Who knew such a small tweak to your beauty regime could make such an impact!
