From ashy brown to dark chocolate, brown shades remain the firm favourite when it comes to selecting the perfect wig. Joseph’s Wigs stock a wide variety of beautiful brown wigs in various tones and styles, with options from our range of popular, trusted brands including Amore, Noriko, and Jon Renau. Brown hair often gets a bad reputation for being ‘boring’ - we want you to know that with the right wig, it can be anything but!
Choosing a Brown Wig
Brown is a universally flattering shade that will suit everyone so you could say that brunette is best. From cappuccino to medium brown to dark chocolate shades, there are shades of brown wigs to suit every taste and skin tone. It’s worthwhile considering that while brown suits most people, there are some hues that may complement you more than others! The key to selecting the perfect brunette lies in the ability to pick a shade that perfectly contrasts your skin tone.
There’s an easy way to check your undertone: simply flip your wrist and inspect the colour of the veins you can see – if they lean towards green, then you have warm undertones; if they instead appear blue, then you have cool undertones. If your veins appear to be a colour somewhere in the middle, lucky you! Your undertones are likely neutral, and you can probably pull off any shade of brown. If you have warm undertones, cool brown shades will look beautiful with your skin. Shades like chestnut, mocha, and dark chocolate will really work to brighten up your complexion.
If you have cool undertones, warm brown hues on the opposite end of the spectrum will make your complexion really pop. Shades like chestnut, golden brown, honey brown, or red brown are perfect for you.
If in doubt, the best way to decide which wig shade is best for you is to try on as many brown wigs as possible till you find one you like.
