Trend Alert: Brunette Stars Going Blonde

Trend Alert Brunette To Blonde

Anne Hathaway turned heads at the Met Gala last Monday by debuting a new blonde hair color, but she’s not the first natural brunette to embrace the bleach recently.

Drew Barrymore didn’t jump straight from a deep brunette to ultra blonde like Anne, rather the star has been taking baby steps–going from the dark chocolate shade she rocked for some time, to a light auburn to a honey blonde, and then finally going to a light strawberry blonde. Of course Drew is no newbie to light locks–the color chameleon has been blonde many times in the past, and I’m excited to see her rock her blonde locks out and about this summer.

Another star who regularly mixes it up is Demi Lovato, but the natural brunette had been wearing her hair long and dark for quite a few months–until this week! Demi stepped out with a blonder, shorter ‘do, and while it’s not the blondest we’ve ever seen her, it may be the most natural looking blonde shade we’ve seen the singer wear.

As for Anne, this is her first time going blonde (though she did wear a platinum wig for the film Alice in Wonderland), and so far, I think she’s wearing the dramatic change well! She said at the Met Gala that Debbie Harry was her inspiration, making her Monday debut fitting, and I’m really loving her as a ‘blondie’!

Whether it’s natural or enhanced, to keep blonde hair its brightest, protect it while you shampoo:

    It works for Demi.

    It really doesn’t work for any of them. Every one of them looks 100x better with their brunette hair (with the possibly exception of Drew, since that is a bad hairdo to begin with).

    It is obvious when a brunette goes blonde. Especially if you don’t change your eyebrows.

    I wish people would realize that there is nothing wrong with being brunette. Blonde is not automatically more beautiful or glamorous.

      Agree 100%

    I think all three look nice with blonde hair.

    Hmm…I guess it’s fun to switch it up. I prefer Drew as a blonde but I feel like Anne’s appeal as a blonde will be short-lived. Demi is better as a brunette, but her makeup in the bottom pic is ten times better than the top.
