My hair is very dark brown with 70%gray I am trying to cover the gray but also lighten my hair a little. While you can't lighten the black hair..I am beginning to get the color I want. At the roots and trying to fade some of the black. I am happy with this on my roots...covers gray and not light or gold looking! It's a nice deep brown without orange!

When I first started using Madison Reed, I started with Lucca Brown and I liked it very much. Then I wanted to try and go a shade darker, so I decided to try Tuscany Brown. I love both. With the darker brown, I may have to touch up the color more often. It has been a month and I see my few greys starting to grow out. I usually try to wait 2 months, but with the darker color I may have to do it sooner.

I dyed my hair previously using MR's Tuscany Brown 6NGV last month and wanted to go lighter. I have naturally dark brown hair with red tint and was very impressed that the Lucca Light Brown was able to show! I just dyed it a few hours ago and I'm still in love with it. Even though its Autumn, I live in Hawaii and I can show off this color during our pretty island weather ;)

Want Red Hair?

Want to turn your look up to 11? Red color is your ticket to check-you-out hair. But you can also opt for subtler shades, like deep mahogany Firenze Brown or burgundy hair color Trieste Red. Coloring your hair red is definitely a bright idea—how bright you want to go is up to you.


Want blonde hair?

Blonde color runs the gamut from natural to striking. Ashy platinum shades like Roma Blonde deliver rock-star cool. Neutral blondes, like Capri Blonde, are easy to maintain and grow out. And ultra-warm honey blondes, like Sicily Blonde, are more on-trend than avocado toast.
