Which light brown style will you try first?

Light brown hair has all the richness of a darker shade combined with the sun kissed tones of a blonde color. In essence, it's the best of both worlds! It even has a beauty buzz-word of it's very own - bronde - in case you were doubting its credibility as an on-trend color option...

When choosing your shade, it's important to choose one that works well with your skin tone. For warm, cool and neutral tones, there are a lot of different hues to consider, some of which will appear more flattering than others. A total clash can work wonders however, just look at Nicole Richie and her cool purple locks! Whether you decide to clash or coordinate, the Féria collection by L'Oréal Paris offers a whole hosts of different shades to consider with 3x the highlights ensuring your hair never looks flat or dull. Not only that, every single dye in the collection will give you a gorgeous multi-dimensional color without damaging your hair.

Once you've got your new shade all sorted, you're going to need a new hairstyle or two to help you show it off! We've put together a list of ten great looks for light brown hair. All you have to do is scroll through and get inspired!

Big and messy

A high, disheveled bun is a great way to keep all of your hair up and under control. It's also an especially useful updo when you're a day or two post-shampoo.

Top tip - Apply BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray by L'Oréal Paris to your hair before teasing to get some serious volume when teasing, whether or not you use a bun maker insert.

Beautiful bangs

Whether you have a long or short cut, getting bangs cut in is a surefire way to update your style without devoting every last strand to your new look. Long, side-swept bangs like these are a great place to start if you're coming from a fringe-free zone but if you're feeling brave, there are always micro bangs and blunt brow-skimming incarnations to think about!

Bobbing along

The bob is a style which has proved itself to be the eternal "It" style. From the 1920s all the way up to Karlie Kloss right just now, it's a look that will always be on-trend, whatever your hair color!

Flyaway with me

A lot of the time, flyaways are seen as negative and must be flattened, pinned down and generally gotten rid of for the good of us all. But not all the time. Sometimes, a pretty windswept hairstyle can help to soften your whole look, making it appear more delicate and very pretty.

Top tip - Spray your finished style with LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray by L'Oréal Paris then use your fingertips to muss the top and sides, teasing a few wispy pieces loose as you go.

Chic chignon

If you're in need of a hairstyle for a formal occasion or job interview, a simple low chignon should do the trick. It's sophisticated yet understated so all the emphasis rests on your face, your outfit and whatever it is that you're saying and doing.

Crowning glory

Are you someone who has always dreamed of having their own crown? Well, you can totally get one! Ok, it might not be made of gold but it's an easy braided look to achieve when you know how and hairspray is a whole lot cheaper than 24 carat gold...

Top tip - Follow our easy tutorial to master this look in no time!

Swept away

Sweeping all of your hair over to one side is another great way to switch up your look without doing anything drastic to your cut. Part your hair deep on whichever side you like best then sweep everything over the opposite shoulder. Twist or braid the hair at the back and pin to add some cute detail.

Top tip - Curl the hair on the fuller side then brush it through for a cascading, unified wave and finish with a generous mist of LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.

Sleek 'n' simple

Poker straight hair with a sleek finish showcases any hair color spectacularly. No fuss, no muss, just shimmery gorgeousness.

Top tip - Spray dry hair all over with SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray to instantly add shine and banish frizz.

Brilliant braid

If tousled hair is more your thing, a messy braid might be a better option. Starting with mussed waves, loosely French braid your hair all the way down then use your hands to mess it all up a bit. Finish with plenty of hairspray and you're all set!

Top tip - Spray damp hair with TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and blow-dry in large twisted sections to make some waves before you start braiding.

'I don't care' hair

Like a messy bun, a disheveled chignon is a great way to show off your hair color thanks to a whole lot of texture. With a few loose, face framing pieces, it's also a style that looks good on just about everyone!
