Smarter Style: Brunettes Having a Moment

Growing up in the 1980s, I always felt having brown hair like mine was not as special as being blonde or redheaded. All the hottest actresses were blond, and pretty much everybody I knew was dyeing their hair lighter.

Fast forward a bunch of years, and all of a sudden brunette is the hot hair color. Celebrities like Scarlett Johansson, who's been known for her porcelain skin and blond hair, show up on the red carpet with their locks dyed a rich chocolaty hue, and natural brunettes like Sofia Vergara, Kim Kardashian, and Anne Hathaway are beauty icons with their dark tresses. Dark hair lights up your eyes and skin tone like blonde just can't, I think. And a brunette dye job is a lot less likely to scream "fake!" than a bad blonde.

If you're thinking about going a little darker, choose a shade only a few steps down from your natural tone, and look for words like "warm" or "natural" on the box...or even better, go to a salon if youre really nervous.


Are you blonde or brunette...and would you consider switching?

Currently, I'm brunette:

But most of my life I have been blonde:

I'm really not sure which is better on me. Women tell me my hair looks nice brown, but most men like me better blonde.

Brunette almost black. I do dye my hair black.. My hair's highligts are naturally redish brown, so a blond brings the red out. Brian liked that too .
