Two Tone choppy long Bob (lob) – brown hair ideas for thick hair
The cut of this choppy bob is expertly edgy and is a guaranteed way to look young and cool. However, the soft, pretty shades of dark brown and, slightly lighter, nutmeg soften up the style and leave it looking totally girly.
Swept Blonde and Brown Ombre
Hairstyles don’t come much sassier than this one. If you rock brown and golden blonde ombre or balayage, part it deeply on one side and sweep it over in this cool, voluminous style.
Layer Up – layered brown hairstyles for female
This hairstyle is all about the layers. Starting off short and choppy and going all the way down to the bottom, these layers create a truly unique shape in this warm, reddish brown hair.
Wavy with Bangs – layered messy balayage shoulder length brown hair
Any aspiring beach babe should definitely try out this hairstyle. Thick full bangs frame the face perfectly, especially with those loose beach waves, and the sun kissed golden balayage will leave you looking like you’ve just come back from a tropical island vacation.
Ombre Curls – brown hair ideas for long hair
For a look that’s fit for a princess, wear your hair straight and sleek in the length, with the ends dramatically curled outwards. The soft touches of honey ombre look incredible with those spiraling curls.
Dark to Light ombre hairstyle for brunette
Good ombre is all about the gradual fade. These long, flowing waves start off as the very darkest shade of brown but beautifully transition into bright, platinum blonde at the tips.
Ash Brown hair color ideas for long straight hair
Long, straight ash brown hair like this is the perfect way for naturally dark haired girls to experiment with lighter colors, without doing damage by repeatedly bleaching and dying. The undertones in this color really brighten up the whole hair and will work wonders for any skin tone.
One of the best things about brown hair is that it can make your locks look more luscious and healthy than ever before. If you’re lucky enough to have long hair like this model, try dying it a frosty ash brown and wearing it poker straight like this.
Looking for a way to add body and bounce to your long hair? If so, here it is. Choppy layers, a carefree wavy style and chunky caramel highlights all come together here to create a truly luscious look.
Very subtle tints of pastel blue and green have been added underneath the ash brown in this hairstyle. This quirky effect looks gorgeous and will keep your brown hair looking youthful and fresh without being too bold.
Here is another example of just how stunning pastel tones can look when hidden in amongst ash brown hair. The silvery streaks of blue at the ends of these brunette waves look fit for a mermaid and are sure to turn plenty of heads.
The chin length bob is a sure fire way to look completely chic and on trend. This is a classic cut which is never likely to go out of style. One way to update the look and put your own personal mark on it, is to color your hair different tones of brown and add some super soft, touchable waves.
This classic shade of brown is a completely low key and low maintenance color. One way to jazz up this look is by adding thin, perfectly curled waves throughout the hair. Even if your locks are usually fine or limp, you’ll find that this trick creates volume and definition.
Big Waves and Bangs
There is something very vintage about this forties inspired hairstyle. We simply can’t get enough of those big, bouncy curls and that full, face framing fringe.
Not only are these big, flowing waves incredibly beautiful, they are also surprisingly easy to style. Get the look yourself by opting for chestnut brown with golden balayage and add some big, carefree curls.
Silky, perfectly spiraling curls like these look like they have come straight out of a fairytale. That delicious shade of warm, golden brown adds to the pretty appearance of the style. If you want to shake the look up, however, try experimenting with edgy dark roots.
Two stunning shades of brown complement each other perfectly in this curled hairstyle. The dark base brown is sleek and sultry, but the sweet streaks of caramel brighten up the whole hair.
The contrasting colors in balayage hair don’t have to stand out against each other boldly. These long locks are a perfect example of just how subtly some sun kissed touches of light brown can make a difference to your look.
It would take most of us quite a bit of time and effort to recreate these sleek, spiraling curls without one hair out of place. However, we’re sure you’ll agree that it is well worth it. Try out this style on your next big night out.
Vibrant Dip Dye
This hairstyle is anything but subtle. If you’re looking for a guaranteed way to turn heads wherever you go, this is the style for you. The very deep shade of brown dramatically turns into a brilliant blonde just before the hair turns curly.
