All of the Chestnut Brunette Inspo You Need This Fall

Sorry blondes, this autumn is all about the brunettes. But not just any old brunette. We’re talking chestnut brunette. With vibrant auburn undertones, these warmer, richer shades are anything but basic. And our favorite A-listers are taking note. Celebrities from Kim Kardashian to Selena Gomez have been spotted sporting this cool color trend. Check out our round up of the best chestnut brunette hair color inspo below!

Lily Aldridge

We’re loving Lily Aldridge’s take on this fabulous fall trend. This chestnut hue perfectly compliments the Victoria Secret model’s skin tone, for a glow-from-within kind of aesthetic.

We can’t get enough of this talented young starlet. Not only does she have some major acting chops and some serious red carpet style (this sequined pink set is to die for), she also has some of the best hair in the business. So naturally, she’s rocking the chestnut trend.
