8 Brown Hair With Blonde Highlights

There's that never-ending argument over who has more fun:blondes or brunettes. Whether you're hoping to add dimension with highlights or simply update your brown base, these celebrities show us a variety of options to present to your colorist ot try at home.

1. Caramel Balayage

Sometimes, your brown hair just needs a minor update. Like Brooke Shields, you can add a touch of warmth to your hair with caramel highlights woven through the ends.

2. Sleek Streaks

A dark brown base looks great with light blonde highlights throughout. Take a note from Savannah Guthrie and get the best of both hair colors.

3. Blonde Babylights

Not sure about lightening up your hair? Follow Natalie Portman and start with a few face-framing ribbons of gold toward the front and ends.

4. Classic Caramel

You don't need the brightest blonde for extra dimension. As tennis powerhouse-turned-style icon Serena Williams shows us, richer gold ends make all the difference for a highlighted effect.

5. Almost Blonde

If it weren't for her dark brown roots, we'd guess Olivia Wilde had gone blonde. This ombré style is ideal for a fresh update on lighter brown hair.

6. Bronde

Is it blonde? Brunette? We can hardly tell the difference, as Jessica Alba has gold highlights that melt into her light brown base.

7. Honey-Colored Babylights

Jessica Biel's caramel-toffee hair is boosted, thanks to a few pieces of blonde throughout. Cameras flashing or not, her hair gets even better in the light.

8. Flashes of Brightness

In the right lighting, Sophia Bush's hair transforms from brunette to almost bronde. Her face-framing highlights aren't completely noticeable, but certainly do the trick for this trend
