#HairGoals: 17 Golden Brown Hairstyles We’re Dying To Try

If you have blonde hair and are looking to go darker, but you’re just not ready to go full-on jet black, then golden brown hair can be the perfect shade for you. This golden auburn shade works for every girl, and it’s a great way to transition your hair into a darker brunette hue. This sultry and sexy colour is a glamorous way to spice up your holiday hairstyles, so grab that screenshot and make a beeline to your stylist (or get creative yourself, if you’re so inclined!) with one of these hairstyles that we’re totally obsessed with:

Balayage highlights are a classy, subtle look that gives off a sophisticated and elegant vibe. Mixing light golden brown hair colours with different natural-coloured pigments gives off a beautiful multi-toned look.


3. Bed Head

Give your hair a texturised, tousled look for your next night out. If your mane is feeling a little too oily, use dry shampoo to take your bedhead down a notch.

The drastic multi-toned look of ombré is always eye-catching. Incorporating a light golden brown in-between dark roots and light blonde ends just gives your hair the perfect smudgy look.


6. Long Natural Curls

Long, natural curls always look whimsical and playful. If your curls are lacking moisture, shampoo less and use a nourishing co-wash in between your regular washes and you’re ready to go!


7. Fresh Blowout

Get a sleek and sheen-filled look by grabbing your straightener and making your locks pin-straight.

To keep your hair protected from the stressors of heat styling, use the Shea Moisture Virgin Coconut Oil Leave-In Treatment before straightening. This will not only protect your hair, it will also nourish and moisturise your hair.


9. Middle Part

A middle part gives off a chic and modern look to your style. Pairing it with a golden brown hair colour will give you a sweet and playful vibe.


10. Bob

A short, classic bob is always one of our favourite hairstyles. It’s timeless and works for just about anyone. You can also play with it by switching up your part and styling your bangs.


11. Blunt Bangs

Blunt bangs give your hair an added illusion of fullness. It also gives an edgy and dramatic appearance to make your look fun and flirty.

The calmer sister of the more dramatic ombré, this style works perfectly with golden brown hair. It slowly shifts from dark brunette colours to a slightly lighter caramel, and we love the way golden brown locks can pull off this look.


14. Blunt Layers
