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.

Queen of the bouncy blow-dry, Kate Middleton champions curly ends and plenty of body at the roots.
Usually a blonde bombshell, Suki has gone over to the dark side with a new brunette hairstyle. Opting for a chocolate brown hue, the model wore her new ‘do in relaxed tumbling waves, with her trademark fringe.
The warmer colour complements Suki’s light tan and 60-inspired make-up. Want to try this hue for yourself? Be prepared to follow suit and play around with new make-up looks and tones to match with your new colour.
When doesn’t Eva’s hair, and entire appearance, look entirely perfect? Whether curled or straight, her warm brown locks are the envy of us all.
Mila Kunis certainly scrubs up well on and off the red carpet. Whether out and about with Ashton Kutcher or at a premiere of her latest film, her brunette locks always look effortlessly fabulous.
Olivia Palermo never seems to be photographed with a hair out of place. Fitting with her immaculate wardrobe, the socialite works her light brown hair into multiple perfectly styled up and down dos.
Top model Karlie went for a brave and extreme chop this year, from long locks to above shoulder-length in one go! Though we miss the longer hair in dramatic styles on the runway, we think her low-maintenence light brown bob is perfect for framing her beautifully featured face.
Audrey Tautou is THE master of the pixie crop. It would make sense for her delicate elfin features to be framed by none other than a perfect brown elfin crop (though we did like her 1960s-styled hair in Coco Before Chanel).
Jessica’s whole appearance is generally pretty breathtaking, and it wouldn’t be the same without her glossy locks which – whether up or down, casual or preened – always look utterly perfect.
Sandra’s poker straight hair seemed to be rather at the ‘Gravity’ premiere. Though she often opts for wavy styles or up dos, her unbeatably sleek locks flatter her youthful face.
Natalie has an unmatchable hair portfolio, from bald for V for Vendetta to those tiny buns (which Miley Cyrus has taken inspiration from) for Starwars, and somehow she always looks completely beautiful. Some of us can dream… We like this lighter brown look she is sporting recently at the Ballet Fall Gala.
Baby faced model Miranda always looks perfectly put together, even when out with two-year-old Flynn on her hip. She hit a glamour high at the Met Ball (arguably, who didn’t?) with this Hollywood Golden Age-influenced curled style – which is perfectly finished with her deep red lips.
Though some of us are still getting used to Emma without her Hermione style, she sure knows how to work a red carpet with classically glamourous up-dos and minimal make-up.
Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra’s glossy brown locks always look glossy and gorgeous, and compliment her skin tone to perfection.
Apart from a few dramatically short styles in the past, Angelina’s glossy brown locks have been pretty much a constant. The healthy-looking mane packs a punch in a tendrilled up do, or flowing down her couture gowns.
Though she famously said: “Don’t touch your hair after a breakup”, she has had her fair share of subtle style changes over the years. We love her signature low-maintenence fringe with works when her hair is up or down.
Nicole has mastered glossy Hollywood curls and isn’t going to stop with the high-impact look. It can add drama to a little black dress, or flatter statement makeup.
Miroslava is known for her neat little brown bob, but we like these more styled looks hse has been experimenting with recently like this 1940s-inspired do at the Mademoiselle C screening.
Aside from that one time that she was papped getting out of the sea, ‘The Face’ judge and model extraordinaire always looks completely perfect. We love this face-framing straight style.
Model Joan looks stunning with her warm brown hair pulled into a tight ponytail at the ‘Modern Muse’ perfume launch.
Fresh faced Jennifer always looks immaculately groomed on the red carpet.
It helps that Kerry has a unbelievably beautiful face, but her brown hair is also part of the charm.
Ashley’s glossy brown locks always look perfectly groomed.
