A girl or woman with brownish or dark hair. (Men and boys with brown hair are simply just called "brown-haired.") They are the females whose hair is darker than that of blondes or redheads. Unlike blondes and redheads, brunettes can be see throughout all groups of humans, from Europeans to Africans.

While it common for people to dye their hair blond, it is also common for a blonde to dye her brownish whenever she's in the mood. Perhaps it is to get rid of the "blonde stigma" of unintelligence, ditziness, and sexual promiscuity.

*Note however that there is no evidence that supports the existence of a correlation between hair color and intelligence.
An example of a brunette is Hillary Swank. Thoughout the film Millon Dollar Baby, her long brown hair is tied in a ponytail.

A brunette is someone with brown hair. Usually a girl. Being brunette does NOT make you ugly, annoying, dumb, jealous or whatever anyone makes up. Judging by most of these deffinitions, the blondes are insecure, attacking brunettes like that. But who really cares? Everyone who thinks one hair color is better is an idiot. Blondes started it, angry at the fact they are called dumb and hot(that one is not an insult people)they began calling brunettes ugly, dull, annoying, and totally horrible. Blondes began to make the outrageous claim in which they say "blondes have more fun" to which brunettes simply replied with "brunettes have more fun" sadly many people still think that blondes are hotter or better and brunettes basically get screwed in life. The truth is hair color dictates nothing about who you are or how you look. Blondes are NOT dumb or annoying or slutty or whatever. Brunettes are NOT annoying or jealous or dull or ugly. Basically, don't judge people by hair color.
person1: Hey, she has brown hair
person2: Yes, she's a brunette.
person1: Does they mean she is any less than a blonde?
person2: No.
person1: Does that mean blondes are less than her?
person2: No.
person1: So it just means she has brown hair?
person2: Yup.
person1: Oh.

Brunette's are known to be reliable, dependable, intelligent, and exotic. It's also been said that brunettes are more approachable since the color brown is prevalent across all cultures. Brunettes are more seductive and exotic than blondes, and they stand out. They're unique and individualistic, whereas with blondes, I've heard people say "all blondes look the same" or "barbie doll." Although it is just a hair color, brunettes in general are more beautiful and striking.
The most beautiful women in the world are brunettes - catherine zeta jones, angelina jolie, vanessa marcil, and aishwarya rai (former miss world)to name a few.

A female with dark hair, close to black but a bit lighter 1 or 2 shades (mostly). Being brunette doesn't mean that you are boring, dull, and uninteresting (though its common) because God create all hair colors are beautiful according to His image. Brunette hair can be as beautiful as blonde hair, red hair, and black hair I mean just look at Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Azhwara Rai, Angelina Jolie, Monica Belluci, and Kristen Stewart all have brunette hair and they all look drop-dead gorgeous, but it's at the inside which more important than hair color as long as you have great personality and confidence then you can pull-off your brunette hair beautifully. Blonde hair is nice too, but some of them are not that nice because of most the shades are too pale and washed out according to my taste (like Paris Hilton), blonde also looks a bit terrible with tanned skin especially if it's platinum blonde. So, to all the brunettes who reading this please don't be insecure about yourselves, it's not boring at all, it's nice.
Brunette hair are nice too, not dull and boring

Just as lovely as blonde hair, red hair, and black hair

Overall all hair colors are beautiful

A hair color, common in most areas of the word. The second most common hair color, next to black. It is characterized by higher levels of dark pigment eumelanin and lower levels of the pale pigment phaeomelanin.

Most of the other defintions for "brunette" is full of bullshit. Brown hair isn't any more attractive than blonde hair or redhair, and to judge someone by physical appearance is shallow and idiotic. There are beautiful, elegant blondes (Scarlett Johansson, Charlize Theron), and beautiful, elegant brunettes (Angelina Jolie, Catherine Zeta-Jones). And of course there are redheads, which can be equally as stunning.

Oh, and by the way, most of the stupid bimbo blondes you see have either bleached their hair, assuming that guys think it's "cute", or have succumbed to peer pressure and decided, "Well, I guess I'll just act stupid because everyone already thinks that I am."
Idiot: Oh, she's a brunette, she must be really smart, but boring.
Intelligent Person: You dumbass. Hair color has nothing to do with personality or intelligence, you piece of shit.
