    I know you can say "Elle est brune / blonde" meaning she has brown / blond hair.

    Is it possible also to say "Il est brun / blond" meaning he has brown / blond hair?

    Merci à l'avance!

    To me, "brun" cannot be associated with "blond".
    Try to Google "cheveux bruns" and check the images. Brun would be "dark haired".
    Brown would more be "châtain" to me.

    I meant brown hair or blond hair.

    It's useful to know that brun and châtain are different.
