Two of the most popular hair colors are brown and blonde. Many ladies choose to be either blonde or brunette but what if you combined the two? Brown and blonde is such a stunning color combo. There are many shades of both colors and they all compliment each other perfectly. Not only that, but blonde is a beautiful way to lighten and brighten brown hair. So, if you have been a bit bored with your hair and think it could do with a makeover, then you are in the right place. Check out these blonde and brown hair ideas for some inspiration. There is a cut, color and style for everyone.
1. Classic Brown and Blonde Hair
The first hair idea that we want to show you is a classic blonde style. So, the hair is a beautiful brown shade with added bright blonde highlights. Hair like this is easy to wear, will suit anyone and it will give your brunette hair a sun-kissed look. Color like this is great for the ladies who want to give their dark brown hair a lift.
2. Brown and Golden Blonde Hair
There are so many shades of blonde and one that compliments brown perfectly is golden blonde. Here is a stunning example. For this look, the hair is long and the root to tip color is dark brown. Golden color has then been added over the top. As you can see, the warmer and richer blonde just looks amazing. It also looks more natural which is what a lot of ladies want.
3. Brown and Blonde Ombre
Another color option that you can try is ombre or balayage. Ombre has a more distinct line between colors and balayage is more blended. You could create the style below. The hair is dark brown and midway it changes into a bright blonde shade. It is a beautiful and trendy ombre style. Try something similar or add more color towards the root of the hair for a more blended look.
4. Brown Bob with Blonde Highlights
Next, we have a stylish bob to show you. The hair is cut quite short and around the front it would be chin length or just below. It is a very dark brown shade and beautiful blonde highlights have been added. We love this style because if the cut was just brown, it would be very blunt and striking.

A more icy blonde would look so trendy.
