How well will color take to your hair if it ’ s light brown , brown , or even black ? The answer depends on what color you are going for . Brown hair works very well with tints and colors like purple , red , and even rose gold . Of course , you can always choose to bleach your hair and achieve any color . Although , I highly suggest that if you choose to do so , you should get it professionally done so you do not damage your hair . Bleaching hair can sometimes lead to frying it from the bleach being on too long ; this can result in brittle hair that breaks off .
