Smarter Style: Brunettes Having a Moment

Posted by   + Show Post

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?

I am a brunette and I did go blonde once. People told me I looked like Daryl Hannah (from the movie Splash) and treated me like I needed my hand held to even get directions. LOL

I'm thankful for a hubby that loves me, 4 healthy children, a warm
place to sleep and enough food for our meals... God bless America!

I'm a natural brunette. I like to dab in the red hues for my hair to bring out my natural highlights more

I used to be blonde, first natural and then "enhanced". I always wanted to be a redhead, but it always went horribly wrong when I tried. I'm gray now, and would never go through the growing out process again.

When I was young, my hair was a dish water blonde. The older I get, the darker it gets. My natural color now is brown, but I've been a redhead for a good 3 years now. Before that, I dyed it blonde. I'm seriously considering either going back to blonde, or just letting it grow out.
