Blond vs. Brunette: 9 Celebrities Who Look Better with Brown Hair

If the recent influx of celebrities taking the platinum plunge (cue actresses Rooney Mara and Emma Stone) has you toying with the idea of a pale dye job, then consider the bombshell appeal of chocolate-colored hair before making any drastic changes.

Models Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Gigi Hadid donned dark wigs at the Balmain Fall 2016 show. Others to enjoy dalliances with brown hair include model Suki Waterhouse and actress Margot Robbie. Both beauties briefly embraced brunette lengths before returning to their natural, flaxen roots.

Meanwhile, actresses Anne Hathaway and Kristen Stewart enjoy the best of both worlds by keeping platinum and chestnut shades on rotation. Actress Angelina Jolie’s rich brown hair is as much of a beauty signature as her pouty lips, but it wasn’t the shade she was born with. Jolie began dyeing her hair a chestnut hue at an early age, and hasn’t looked back since.

Superstar singers Lady Gaga and Maya Diab are known for their striking blond lengths, yet we can’t help but swoon over their natural brunette manes.
