Should Charlize Theron Go Back to Blonde?

02/06/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

Charlize Theron has been laying low these days, so when we saw her last week at the East of Havana screening in NYC, we were totally surprised by how different she looked. We tend to think of Charlize as a sunny blonde so it took us a minute to fully register her severely slicked back brunette hair and red lips. Clearly, she’s a beauty either way, but the looks are so different that we can’t resist comparing! Tell us: Should Charlize go back to blonde? Or do you like her new brunette locks?

P.S. While you’re thinking about haircolor, what do you think of Jessica Simpson’s new reddish-brown do? Let us know!

I think enough people have a hard time telling her and Ashley Judd apart with her blonde. The brunette is not working for me at all.

BRUNETTE!!!She looks younger.

Wow, is brunette the new blond? Jessica went brunette, too. I wouldn’t be surprised if Kate Hudson, Kate Bosworth, or even Paris Hilton jumped on the bandwagon. It is a very cool color. I like Charlize’s dark, dark hue, but the style isn’t flattering. Soft waves would have looked nicer.

I think the darker color is a good look for her, it gives her a more darker sophisticated look, and the blonde is good for summer,but can get away with the darker look, however, I think she should have gone with a golden brown.

The flat hair isn’t very appealing to her at all… so I can’t really make a judgement. If I had to compare the blonde looks so much better to me.
