Changing up your hair color is a great way to start the new season in style, especially if the shade you choose is a rich brunette! Any darker shade will contrast with the super popular platinums we've been seeing everywhere of late, whether it's a deep chocolate color or a lighter "bronde" hue.

If you do decide to go brunette, you'll need a few hairstyles in rotation that can showcase your new color. In the mini-gallery above, you'll find three cute styles that work beautifully with brown hair! All you need to do is decide which one to try first...

Low-shine pony

This low pony is a 'real life' take on the wet look trend that will give your whole look a runway edge, without any 'drowned rat' undertones. Win-win, no?

Get the look: Brush your hair through then part it in the middle or slightly off-center. Work a small amount of regular strength gel throughout, sweeping everything back off your face. Gather your hair into a low ponytail and disguise the tie with a small piece of hair by wrapping it around the elastic and pinning underneath. Complete the look with a finishing spray to add shine and hold.

Long, textured bob

This style is something of a stop-gap between medium-length and short hair, and it looks good on just about everybody!

Get the look: To create the perfect "I just woke up like this" hairstyle with dry hair, scrunch a small amount of wax through the ends for added texture and finish with a veil of hairspray.

Pretty waves

This fairytale hairstyle is another look that can work for anyone. It's also a style that can be easily replicated without heat tools.

Get the look: Part your hair in the middle then spray dry or damp hair with a wave enhancing spray evenly throughout. Divide the hair into four sections and braid each one all the way down to the ends. Secure with hair ties and go to sleep. When you wake up, undo the braids and shake out your hair. Add shine and keep flyways at bay with a finishing spray to complete the look.
