Ash brown is the definition of "timeless" as it's always trending. It will look great on you if you have a cool skin tone. The colour is also noticeable enough without being overwhelmingly bright.

Take note that you will most probably have to bleach your hair to achieve this shade! But if you are worried about the bleach damaging your hair, try out this new ash range hair dye that works well on Asian hair with no bleaching required.

#4 Caramel brown
