Timeless beauties like Faten Hamama and Soad Hosny were revered for their rich, brunette tresses, so if you are wondering if a head of chocolate-colored hair is boring, think again. The dark hue may be the most common—but thanks to its versatility—it can also be your standout feature.

If you’re looking to go lighter for spring but aren’t quite ready for a total transformation, take a beauty cue from Lebanese TV host and entrepreneur Joelle Mardinian and opt for two-tone hair. Can’t decide between blond or brown? Get inspired by social media sensation Fouz Alfahad and have the best of both worlds with “bronde” hair, which is a chic mix of both.

Those who want to add dimension to fine hair can opt for caramel highlights or the more natural-looking babylights like Negin Mirsalehi and Jessica Alba. Dial it up a notch with multiple hues of warm blond, chestnut, mahogany, and honey to create a stunning sun-kissed effect à la Gigi Hadid’s luscious, waist-skimming strands.

From Diala Makki’s raven brown tresses to Gigi Hadid’s beachy balayage, click ahead for 9 extraordinary brown hair color ideas that prove that the dark side just might be the best side.
