Brunette—Minka Kelly (Natural Level 3, Dark Brown)

Spring/Summer 2012 Trend #1: Brunettes
“My clients are still loving Redken’s Illumination technique – darker roots with lighter ends. Brunettes continue to lighten up into the warmer months whether they go a little lighter on the ends or for their overall color. So many of my clients bring in photos of Minka Kelly for their hair inspiration. She has such a pretty warm golden brown color that looks fantastic with her complexion. As the weather warms up, even brunettes like to brighten up their color for summer!” – Tracey Cunningham
