When I first made the leap from brunette to auburn hair, it was a challenge to find a perfect eyebrow product to compliment my coif color. Auburn hair can mean a variety of shades, most commonly described as “reddish-brown”. But auburn hair can also range from medium to dark in tone. Auburn also encompasses maroon, chestnut, and burgundy. Specifically, auburn is more red in color; chestnut is more brown; and burgundy is more purple.
With that squared away, let me fill you in on some great brow enhancement options if you are an auburn beauty. Oh, and BTW…..Lucky you if your auburn locks are au naturel.
