There has never been a better time to be a brunette. For years we’ve been told that blondes have more fun, but now, a revolution is starting from the red carpets and runways, and it’s taking over the fashion world. It’s official; brown hair is in. A big part of brunette hair’s rise to the top of the trends is down to the popularity of ombre, balayage and dip dye; styles that have been consistently proven to work perfectly with brown hair. If you decide to make a change this spring and go brown, you can count yourself in an exclusive club alongside the likes of Kate Moss, Beyoncé and Jennifer Lopez. Perhaps you already are a sultry brunette, but you’re growing bored of your dull shade and want to freshen things up this season? Whatever your current hair situation, you’re sure to be inspired by these easy and pretty brunette hairstyles.
