11 Celebs With Chocolate Brown Hair to Serve as Color Inspiration

Updated 11/02/17

While we love baby blonde highlights and platinum dye-jobs (we see you, Karlie Kloss), there's also something to be said for a dark, rich chocolate brown hair color. It can complement your features, bringing out green, hazel, and brown eyes and allowing for a more golden, bronzey makeup look. That, and it's especially inviting for a fall hair transformation. 

Below, find 11 of our favorite brunettes to serve as inspiration for your next salon visit.
