How can you tell if your hair is brown or blonde?

I would suggest that the next time you go to a salon, ask the stylist to pull out the color swatches, which are often broken down by color. Have him or her compare your natural color to the swatches. Explain to them that you were wondering whether your hair would be considered blonde or brown. Other than that, you might try comparing your hair color to some of the home coloring kits found at your local drug store. Have a friend go with you to make the job easier.

Blonde ranges from practically white to Caramel colored.

Brown hair has more Red pigment while blonde hair will have more yellow.
