what shade of brown look best with auburn highlights?
- Missy KLv 41 decade agoFavorite Answer
Any shade of brown will work good with auburn highlights. If your hair is lighter you could get lowlights, which are basically the same but the "highlighted" areas are just darker than your natural color instead of lighter. Generally speaking you'd want to get auburn red highlights if you have brown hair with copper undertones. If your hair is just a dark brown you may want to consider true red highlights OR coloring your hair to a nice shade of dark auburn before getting lighter auburn highlights put in.Source(s): Cosmetologist since 2000
