Do blondes do have more fun? Do gentlemen prefer blondes? These brown haired beauties don't care. Check out our round-up of the best celebrities with brown hair.

Whether you’re considering a seasonal change or just wondering what next to do with your  brown locks, we’ve rounded up our favourite celebrity brunette hairstyles for inspiration.
So if you’re after 70s-inspired flowing waves or want to cut your layers into a short pixie crop, there’s something to suit everyone.
Take chocolate-haired Carey Mulligan, Angelina Jolie and Dakota Johnson as an example. All three actresses like to wear their locks in loose wavy styles that flatter their face shapes. This is a look also favoured by Australian model Miranda Kerr.

Jessica Alba and Karlie Kloss are among the VIPs who prefer to stick to the lighter end of brunette colour spectrum. But while Jessica is often snapped working tumbling tousled tresses, Victoria’s Secret star Karlie prefers to keep things as fuss-free as possible with a shaggy bob.

Olivia Palermo and Emma Watson are another fashionable pair who are never photographed without picture-perfect brunette hairstyles. These glamorous girls are perfect to look to for inspiration if it’s a sleek and straight style that you’re after.

We’ve long regarded French stunner Audrey Tautou as the master of the elfin crop. If, like Audrey, you’re blessed with delicate features, this is certainly something you should consider next time you visit the salon. It’s one of the sweetest and most summery brunette hairstyles we can think of right now. And it can be styled with minimal effort in a matter of minutes – a quick ruffle and a touch of product and you’re good to go.  

If you love all things retro, Natalie Portman and Eva Mendes are your go-to girls. Both love to get experimental with a backcombing brush before stepping out at a glittering awards ceremony on the premiere of their latest film.
