As summer turns into fall and the leaves start to change, it's only natural to want to change up your hair color. After platinum blonde peaked once again this summer, it may be time to take things down a hue or two with a bronde or rich brunette shade. After all, darker hair colors are less likely to give you an accidental ombre dye if you skip a salon appointment, and they're totally season appropriate. You know, all warm and rich, just like the pumpkin spiced everything we're going to use as our main source of sustenance in the coming months...

If you do decide to go brunette, you'll need a few hairstyles in rotation that can showcase your gorgeous new chocolate shade. That's where we come in. By scrolling through the mini-gallery above, you'll find three cute styles that work beautifully with brown hair!

1. Long, tousled bob

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

To style: To create the perfect "I just woke up like this" hairstyle with dry hair, scrunch a small amount of L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum through the ends for added texture and finish with a veil of hairspray.

2. Mermaid waves

This fairytale hairstyle is another look that can work for anyone. It's also a style you can achieve by simply going to sleep. Seriously.

To style: Part your hair in the middle then spray dry or damp hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves 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; if you share a bed with someone, don't explain, their unexpected bewilderment will be entertaining. When you wake up, undo the braids and shake out your hair. Mist with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray to finish.

3. 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?

To style: 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 veil of hairspray.

What do you think? Which brunette hairstyle do you like best?
