List Rules Women must have had brunette hair at some point in their careers.

Here is the list of attractive celebrity women with brunette hair, including actresses, models, and musicians. These babes have gorgeous and shiny dark hair that only enhances their good looks. While some celebrities who are natural brunettes often lighten their hair or dye their locks a different color, the beautiful brunettes on this list often show off their raven hair. Varying between jet black, light brown, and anywhere in between these famous women have the bone structure to be among the most alluring celebrities of all time even with the darkest hair around.

For some of these celebrities, brunette hair is the norm. Actresses like Angelina Jolie, Megan Fox, Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway, and Zooey Deschanel more often than not sport the brunette look and do so strikingly. The same goes for singers like Katy Perry and Selena Gomez, whose often changing, but usually dark, hair has earned them spots on the female pop singers lists for a while now.

Others who made this list dyed their hair brunette for a role and, for at least a small part of their career in Hollywood, looked great while it lasted. Few can forget when Katie Holmes cut her hair into a stylish bob while keeping the same jet black color she's known for. Others like Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, Rachel Bilson, Sofia Vergara, and Kerry Washington have varied their hair color between really dark and pretty golden brown, not losing a bit of their beauty while doing so.

These brunette actresses are known for being dark haired actresses. Who do you think is a pretty brunette woman? Who is the most beautiful brunette, or most beautiful brunettes in the whole universe?

So who is a hot or sexy brunette in Hollywood? Vote for your favorite dark-haired celeb, add any not listed in the gallery below, or even re-rank this list of the beautiful stars with brunette hair.
