3 quick beauty fixes especially for my brunette sisters

beauty buys for brunettes

By Andrea Michelle

Brunettes are perceived to earn more money, are thought to be more intelligent, and are considered to be sexier than women with any other hair colour according to this post I stumbled across online. And while it makes for an interesting read – it cites not one but six robust research studies to support it’s claim – as a life-long brunette with many close blonde girlfriends who’re richer, smarter and constantly cause whiplash in men, I’m taking it with a grain of salt.

But I know this much is true: Dark hair shows grey hair sooner. Dry shampoos and some mattifying hair powders can leave us looking like we’ve got a bad case of dandruff. And eyebrows are everything.

Here’s 3 of my favourite beauty finds that have kept me from looking like a Frida Kahlo impersonator, and are worth adding to your brunette beauty kit, stat.

    The root cover up does look interesting but I’m concerned at 90% grey it might not work?
