Better off Blond

Sure I know these ladies are lovely no matter what, and I know they sometimes have to color their hair for work purposes, but I still think they look better blond.

Scarlett Johansson

Sarah Jessica Parker

Renee Zellweger

Pink

Michelle Williams

Wow, Cameron Diaz scared the heck out of me! What is with that expression?

Penny said...

I don't know.They all look really good with dark hair.I'm always on the fence,because they look good with both.

What doesn't really work,is when they try to go red.It takes a special something to be able to pull of red hair.No matter how big (and hot) a starlet you are.

insomniaclolita said...

I agree, I really think they look better blond. Out of all of them, only michelle williams that can pull this off. Fergie looks really bad with dark hair, no kidding.

tanya said...

agreed! Especially with Christina Aguilera...scary.

LENORENEVERMORE said...

...whatever it is, I believe change is always good, but in this case I agree most should stick to the lighter shades... ahhh women...such complex beings!

Absolutely Not Martha said...

i like the dark hair on renee and pink--drew can do no wrong in my book.

Jake Hammell said...

Charlize Theron looked super-fine with dark hair!
Scarlett Johanssen's hair is too long in that picture. I think she'd be able to do that colour without the hussy-red lipstick and a better outfit.

Clare said...

I think Scarlett looks great but the other ladies look so much better with blond hair. Especially Michelle Williams.

...love Maegan said...

couldn't agree more. ...as someone who ALWAYS wants to look exotic with dark hair but can't pull it off ...when you're blonde, you're blonde.

sallymandy said...

You called it. They definitely look better blonde.

The Seeker said...

yeah, I agree, well Cameron Diaz looks much better blonde!!!

Char said...

I think it's the dark, dark shades - they could totally rock it if they didn't go so very dark and harsh.

I think SJP and Drew both look great.

isabelle said...

I really like Cameron Diaz's look on this pic!

Oliphe Butarbutar said...

I think for Charlize Theron black is a great color for her :D
Btw, nice blog xP

down and out chic said...

i agree w/you except i think sjp is pulling off the color really well in that photo.

Lindley said...

i agree!!! i have recently been contemplating red, but i love my blonde locks. what to do, what to do!

Kierstin Bridger said...

yup,everybody but S.J.Parker
Sometimes blondes whoe dye look like their hair is burned...believe me I would look terrible as a blonde!
About your hot in santa Fe comment?
Dude, you live in LA!
Santa Fe is lovely! Itin the mountains it was SNOWING when we were there. Ya gotta GO!!The art is fabuloso.

miriam said...

mmm, I think so too. scary...

Mary-Laure said...

I agree with you except for Charlize Theron.

Connie Hsiu said...

i agree with most of them, but there are a select few that i like better brunette :)

K.Line said...

I categorically agree with you in every instance of this post. You called it perfectly, IMO.

clorivak said...

Ya nailed it!!!

Raina said...

I love that you tackle the hard news. ;)

Diane said...

I agree with you on most of these (especially with Scarlett Johansson blech!) but I absolutely adore Michelle Williams as a brunette. Maybe it's the short hair, though. I'm a sucker for girls with short hair, hoodies, and button-ups. Sigh.

Pop Champagne said...

Scarlett is soooooo pretty! No wonder she does so many high fashion editorials!

apriliniowa said...

I'm thinkin' Drew Barrymore/Michelle Williams are the only ones working the darker hair well.

Elizabeth Marie said...

I like Drew...but woman you're giving me a complex! I JUST went dark haha.

I hope you're having a good day! xo

Kellie said...

I agree w/ all of those except for SJP. I think she can look equally great w/ either. The rest though? All better as blondes.

Emz said...

I think Drew Barrymore is ok as a brunette- But yea blondes should stick with being blonde, if they're fantastic at acting like renee zellweger theres NO way people aren't going to take them seriously anyway!

Alicia @ boylerpf said...

Absolutely blonde is better for these chicks!

LiLu said...

Agreed with EVERY SINGLE ONE. And I am proud brunette!

Diana said...

Totally agree with you!!

Janelle said...

You're right! They all look better blonde. Drew looks good either way though.

Gabby said...

I agree, with the exception of SJP...I like her hair color in that picture.

Felicia said...

That's an unusually good picture of SJP, and Fergie can take a flying leap into my fist. She would look a lot better with her hair over her entire face.

thereddeer said...

I think I have to agree with you with most of these, but I think Sarah Jessica Parker looks alright as a brunett.

Missy said...

I so agree! The Blonder the Better according to the world of Missy!

ASSHOLE BOYFRIEND said...

If you put a blond guy in a room with all dark haired guys, I would gravitate to the blond,nothing beats a blond man, but a woman with straight black hair? Wow.

Maverick Malone said...

Wow...they all are quite gorgeous looking in these photos.
Nice post :)

xox, mavi

alissa said...

i agree on every single one! its kind of fun to change it up im sure, but they should all go back to blonde!

Chris said...

I agree with pretty much all of them. Isn't that weird? Why does it seem so jarring to see a blond turn brunette? I guess the same is true of the reverse. I think one of the worst is Scarlett Johansson. The blond hair added a delicate beauty to her. She is still pretty, but with a totally different vibe. And I always liked SJP better as a blond, like in the earlier episodes of SATC.

Kim said...

I would have to agree with you. I've seen a lot of this at work lately - women going brunette because it's the style but some of them were lovely blondes and now just look off.

Diane said...

i'm a big fan of dark hair and pale skin. charlize theron's hair is just perfect! so shiny!!!

gangsta bride said...

I completely agree. I mean honestly, I think everyone looks the best with their natural hair color. sorry.

Dan W Johnson said...

I tend to think there are too many women wanting to be straight haired blondes these days but all these women look better blonde...

Sister Wolf said...

WOW! All horrible! Now I want to be blond more than ever. Waaah.

esther said...

yes, positively.
...but i have to say, charlize still looks pretty hot. she can't help it.

Dooder City said...

I do think that some people look great as blonds. Can I make a request about Drew? I want to see her in her short blond faze when she wore slips and daisy's in her hair.

Pen Pen said...

I agree 100 percent!! Especially about SJP--I love her wild dirty blond of sex and the city!!

Trixie La Belle said...

Well, as a (coloured) blonde myself I totally agree and think blonde suits them the best. In many cases the dark color looks very fake on these ladies. SJP and Drew Barrymore can handle it the best though in my opinion and Scarlett Johansson... well, I've never actually seen her in a movie with brown hair, and I hope not ever having to do that either :p I love her as a blonde. As a brunette in such heave makeup she looks kinda old and vampy.

Bon Don said...

As long as the blonde looks natural!

Girl Japan said...

Fantastic Post!!!! I agree and disagree lol . I love natural hair color I really do... Parker looks good natural... I don't know what their natural color is anymore.. lol Cameron looks younger blond for sure!!!

Staci said...

a few of them were idiots to go dark....but i love the blue eyes dark hair look...

K @ Blog Goggles said...

Ooh, I agree, except for Cameron Diaz and SJP.

Chessa! said...

agreed, sistah! the only one who I think looks arguably better as a brunette is Drew. she looks great as both but that color looks so rich. having said that, they all look ok with it (except for Michelle Williams who is so gorgeous but looks homely with that hair and Christina and Charlize who look too severe)...speaking of Christina, her blond hair lately looks a little too Barbie, Candy Playboy Playmate lately.

Milly said...

I think some look fine as a brunette

Mermaid said...

I think SJP still looks good but you're right, most of them look horrendous.

Though, I think that's just a bad photo of Scarlett.

Tina { Luphia Loves... } said...

def agree with you here!

Hanako66 said...

ha! you are so good at this

carina said...

SJP and drew look great as brunettes!!
Im totally considering a colour change from blonde to brunette but am a teensy bit scared!

kathleen said...

You know who pulled it off beautifully? Reese Witherspoon as June Carter Cash. I thought it was stunning. (I'm glad she didn't make your list!)

tablet for drawing said...

SJP I think looks great with darker hair, and Charlize was smoking as Aeon Flux, but that had to do with the clothes more so than the hair, I guess.
