Lily Aldridge's Brunette Look That Fans Envy

Lily Aldridge is an American supermodel with enviable hair that has an entire Pinterest board dedicated to it. People request this former Victoria's Secrets model's long brunette cut and color worldwide because it is long, flowy, and looks effortless. This Sports Illustrated model keeps her hair dark with a shiny shade of chestnut brown, but she does change her hairstyle quite a bit. While she doesn't stray too far from her natural brunette hair, there was a time when she went platinum blonde with dark roots (via Byrdie). Her medium brown hair with balayage highlights are so perfect, and the face-framing of the highlights on the second half of her hair soften her features, giving her a youthful look.

Celebrity hair colorist Tracey Cunningham, who colors Aldridge's hair, even told Byrdie, "Lily Aldridge's hair is awesome because if you look at her color as a kid, it's the same color. I knew her from when she was young." Cunningham added that her inspiration for Aldridge's hair color was the same color the model had when she was a young child. Aldridge likes her hair darker at the roots and lighter at the ends with highlights and lowlights because it is low maintenance and very flattering (via Refinery 29).

How to get Lily Aldridge's bombshell look with brunette hair and ombré highlights

The famous colorist Tracey Cunningham, who has worked with Jennifer Lopez and Khloe Kardashian, said Lily Aldridge's highlights are her most requested look (via People). She first created the look for the model when she had to go dark for a project, and Aldridge loved it so much that she kept requesting for it after.

To get Lily Aldridge's brunette hair with the ombré highlights, ask your colorist to match your base color by adding gloss to the roots to blend them in so it looks natural when it grows out. Then, request them to add highlights to sections of your hair to frame your face and the ends of your hair. The last step is another gloss application to tone the color and make it look less yellow. To maintain the color, Cunningham told People, "To keep the gloss on your hair, switch to sulfate-free products." So, there you have it, the secret to Aldridge's perfect hair.

Now that we know the secret to her hair color, how do we get that voluminous texture? Hairstylist Bryce Scarlett told Us Weekly that he uses dry shampoo to build Aldridge's hair texture. He added, "If you're doing your hair and you want to wear it for a few days, use dry shampoo to get texture as opposed to dry texture spray, your blowout is going to last longer."
