A glow-up doesn't have to be about getting a drastic haircut or switching to a blonde hue. Even a small change counts! Take for example dyeing your naturally brunette locks to a different shade of brown or even making it as dark as black.


A low-key makeover like this is timeless and requires little maintenance. Another plus for choosing a dark hair color? You can do it at home via hair dye kits or bubble dyes. You can ask for guidance from your trusted salon stylist if you're quite not sure which shade to go for.
