Braces are first and foremost a medical device, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun with them! Adding a pop of color to your braces can be a great way to enhance your natural features, especially if you have brown eyes and brown hair.
In this article, we’ll be exploring 13 different brace colors that are perfect for bringing out the beauty of brown eyes and brown hair. So whether you’re looking to make a statement or just add a little bit of personality to your braces, you’re sure to find something you love on this list!
Red is a bold and vibrant color that can add a pop of energy to your look. When paired with brown eyes, it can make them appear brighter and more striking. If you’re feeling daring, try pairing red braces with a red dress or blazer for a head-to-toe look. Or, for a more subtle approach, pair red braces with neutral colors such as black or white. With red braces, you’ll be sure to turn heads wherever you go.
Maroon is a darker, muted version of red that can add a touch of sophistication to your look. It blends perfectly with brown eyes and brown hair, creating a cohesive look. Maroon braces can be worn with a variety of clothing options, from casual jeans and a t-shirt to a formal dress. Plus, maroon is a color that’s often associated with autumn, so it’s perfect for the fall season.
Burgundy is a deep, rich shade of red that will level up your smile and overall look. It pairs well with brown eyes and can complement the richness of brown hair. Burgundy braces are stunning worn with a dark red lipstick. And, if you’re a wine lover, you’ll be happy to know that burgundy is a color that’s often associated with, well, burgundy wine. Plus, they don’t stain if you drink it!
Eggplant is a deep purple color that can add a touch of drama to your look. You may confuse it with black, but at a closer look you can see those dark purple shimmers. Eggplant is a great match for brown eyes and it can enhance the natural depth of brown hair. Eggplant can be the perfect color for a dark moody outfit, so be sure to pair it with a matching sweater or blouse. As a fun fact, eggplant is a color that’s often associated with royalty, so you’ll feel like a queen or king with these braces.
Black is a classic color that can add a touch of sophistication to your look. It’s bold, but it’ll match with anything in your wardrobe, so you’ll never have to worry about clashing colors again. Brown eyes and dark brown hair are ideal shades for black elastic ties on braces, because the contrast with your white teeth is so striking. If you have dark frame glasses, it works even better.
6. Light Green
Light green is a fresh and lively color that can add a pop of energy to your look. Green eye shades are fabulous for brown eyes, so it’s only natural that light green braces will work well too. However, they can look a little bit like you have food in your teeth, so choose a more unusual shade of green. Light green elastic ties are a great color for spring and summer, so they will match perfectly with your seasonal wardrobe.
7. Dark Green
Dark green is a deep and rich color that works well on its own, or combined with light green or purple. It pairs wonderfully with brown eyes, creating an original look and it can complement the richness of brown hair. Dark colors generally work well if you have brown eyes and brown hair, but you can complete your look by adding a dark green eyeshadow or eyeliner in your makeup arsenal. After all, if you choose this color, you’ll wear it for at least a month.
Teal is a beautiful and unique color that can add a fresh and modern touch to your look. It’s a great color for brown eyes, making them appear brighter and more striking. But beware, lighter shades of teal and turquoise can really stand out from afar, so if you don’t want too much attention on your braces, choose a more muted color. Teal is also a great color for the spring and summer season, it can make your look fresh and lively.
Lavender is a soft and delicate color that brings femininity to your look. It’s a great color for brown eyes, making them appear softer and more romantic. Make sure not to choose a pastel or very light lavender as these colors, although beautiful, can quickly lose pigment and become yellow. Match your lavender braces with a colorful outfit that complements this lovely shade, and wear it in spring and summer for a soft look.
Purple is a rich and elegant color that’s perfect for boys and girls alike. Not to mention it’s the go to color for eye and lip makeup if you have brown eyes and brown hair. And it’s popular for a reason: it doesn’t stain, makes your teeth look whiter, and looks fantastic. Purple is also a great color for the fall and winter season, it can make your look rich and warm.
Violet is a daring color worn on braces, so either stick to neutral clothes, or go with super colorful outfits to match its energy. It’s a great color for brown eyes, making them appear deeper and more dramatic. Intense violet like the one above is perfect for late summer, but it can also brighten up gloomy winter days. Just be careful to wear matching lipstick.
Nacarat is a rich and vibrant orange color that can add a pop of energy to your appearance. It’s a great color for brown eyes, making them look brighter and more striking. Insert orange elements in your everyday outfits, like an orange necklace in the summer, or an orange scarf in the fall. Nacarat also works particularly well with darker skin complexions, so be sure to take advantage of this.
Silver is a timeless choice and a classic for all patients who prefer a more subtle approach. It’s a neutral color that can complement any hair or eye color. Silver is also a great color for any season, and aside from masking the metal in your braces, it can really make your look elegant and classic. But my hope is you’ll stray from silver from time to time to try out bold new colors.
