Trend Worth Trying: Brunette Hair for Fall

09/05/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

We knew that dark nails were going to be big this fall, but dark hair is sweeping Hollywood; former blondes Britney Spears (left) and Cameron Diaz (right) as well as redhead Lindsay Lohan (middle) have all switched to shades of chocolate brown. PEOPLE magazine’s Beauty Editor Elizabeth Lamonts explains, “the trend is about these celebs saying, ‘Summer is over. I’m ready for something different, darker, more daring.’ It’s about seeing all those great coats and cashmere sweaters in the stores and getting in the mood.” Now, we’ll just have to wait and see who else goes to the dark side this fall. Tell us: Will you go brunette for fall?

I’m not going to go brunette just because its fall! I like being a blonde and it would be too difficult to go back to that after going brunette. I don’t think my hair would survive it. Those celebs get the best treatments from the best hairdressers who know millions of tricks the average person doesn’t. I mean, I LOVE brunette, it’s so warm and friendly (usually) but I’m not going to do it… I’d regret it afterwards.

I think it is a great look. I am seriously considering going to the dark side as well. After years of highlights, I think it may be a nice change.

I think its ridiculous to change your hair color for a season to be in style ,but I am brunette naturally so if anyone whos a blonde or a redhead they can do as they please.But in all I think this would be a waste of time!

Well I’m naturally a brunette and I love it, I wouldnt want it any other way. I find brunettes always stand out more and have a more mysterious and sexy look.

I am not going to dye my hair because Lindsay Lohan and Cameron Diaz did! This is ridiculous. Perhaps we should be paying more attention to the beauty of people who take the time to stop looking at themselves in the mirror to make a difference in the world! Sorry, I just don’t understand why people would ever think of following in the path of some of these so called celebrities. Come to think of it, I don’t understand why they are celebrities!

Brunette? Their hair looks almost black! It isn’t even chocolate brown. It is a bit harsh for all three of these ladies’ skin tones. I agree that is too hard on your hair to change it for a season. Keeping up with the changes in clothes, shoes, accessories and makeup is a workout in itself!

I think Britney & Lindsay look gorgeous with dark hair! Cam looks good too but she is stunning as a blonde.
I have been thinking about going dark because I have naturally more brown hair & always high light it with differnt colored blondes. I think Ill give the dark hair a try! Always up for a change.

I THINK ITS A GOOD TREND BUT THE GIRLS WHO HAVE CHOOSEN TO FOLLOW IT, DON´T LOOK GOOD AS BRUNETTES EXCEPT MAYBE LINDSAY,CAMERON LOOKS LIKE THE JOKER THE COLOUR MAKES HER FACIAL FEATURES LOOK HARDER ,AND ALSO FOR BRITNEY IT MAKES HER FOREHEAD LOOK BIGGER,THEY SHOULD STICK TO BLONDE,IT COVERS UP BETTER THEIR WEAKER POINTS.

It’s yuck on Cameron Diaz. She’s meant to be blonde. It suits her eyes and features. Also, she looks scads older in the dark hair.
