Carmen Electra Goes Dark! Love It or Hate It?

Carmen Electra is definitely one star who likes to play around with her hair color — we’ve seen her run the gamut from bright blonde to deep brunette. But when she turned up at the L.A. premiere of Hairspray last night with almost-black locks, we couldn’t help but do a double take! Maybe it’s the darker color or the sleek, straight ‘do, but Carmen just looks so different to us. Carmen’s rep tells PEOPLE that the change is for a new film so we’ll have a while to get used to the new look. But right now, we’re still undecided about which color we like better. So we want to know what you think! Tell us: What do you think of Carmen’s new darker color? Love it or hate it?

Sandra on

I think it looks more natural than the fake blond, but still, it’s fake dark…stay natural ladies!

sophieb on

Sorry girls im going to say carmen looks better with caramel colour hair. Dark just doesnt do it for me im afraid.

Megan G. on

The darker color really brings out her features, and she looks so fresh faced and pretty with less makeup. Overall I think it’s a classier look.

Gisele on

I like it! But she needs some demention in it!! NO brunette has one tone!

dawn on

LOVE the dark color. Really brings out her blue eyes.

coral on

Love the hair color! But her makeup needs to be adjusted to emphasize her new look, thats all. Can’t really judge a person that looks great with almost any hair color!

Jennifer on

I love the dark hair :) Def brings out her beautiful blues and the honey color was looking a little drab anyway. Hopefully she’ll keep it longer then the last time.

alia on

Well, I don’t hate either one…. I think Carmen should go in between these two colors….and I agree w/ Sandra—I think girls should just stay their natural color….

jamie jantz on

I love it!! It really makes her look professional and polished. The other look kind of makes her look dirty.

Lauren R on

I think Carmen looks beautiful with any hair color.

mackie on

I THINK THE HAIR COLOR IS GREAT, BUT SHE NEEDS SOME DIFFERENT MAKEUP.

gracie on

I favor the dark. It makes her eyes pop.

Anonymous on

She looks kind of like Courtney Cox. And she looked better before.

bri on

I personally like both styles!!

Daisy on

Funny I’m going dark myself! I hope celeb’s stick to the brunette trend, ’cause most of them look natural and beautiful.

VB on

Her hair looks very limp and blaaah now. I think she should have stayed with the old bouncy, full golden-toned locks.

Desiree on

Just plain love it!

Terra on

Carmen’s blue eyes stick out no matter what her color……. SHe’s has a beautiful face that can go with any color. But the darker does def defines her blue eyes that much more.

shelby on

love the color!!, not the style

Elda on

loving her hair either way.

marisa on

I like that the color brings out her eyes, but it ages her a little bit…

F on

love carmen electra!!!! shes a beautiful women no matter what her hair color should be at the moment. she looks awesome no matter what!! GO GIRL!!!!

k8 on

I agree with Marisa…she looks beautiful no matter what, but the dark colour definitely makes her look older.

Joanne on

I think the new darker hair color makes her look really washed out. She should really change her make up to suit her new hair.

PAULiNA on

the caramel looks tons better, its just more fittin for her complexion.

Katelyn on

I love the lighter color (left picture), she looks younger

Miranda on

I think the dark gives her a more serious look. At quick glance, I think she looks a bit like Courtney Cox-Arquette.

Monica on

Hate it!! she looks 10 years older, with her new dark brown hair!

chris on

it doesnt matter dark or light, she will always be hot.

Bebe on

I think Carmen looks great
with a “reddish brown” color
back when she was hosting
that MTV show Singled Out.

Blonde hair makes her look
fake and black hair makes
her skin pale.

Emilee ♥ on

I like the darker better, but she needs to change her make-up. Her eyes are beautiful, and the color really brings out her light baby blues. I love the dark hair now, but maybe add some hues of warm red tones and/or warm brown tones, just to freshen up the color a bit. I didn’t really care for Carmen’s hair in the left picture, I always thought it didn’t suit her. Regardless, Carmen is gorgeous no matter what color.

lindy on

I thinks he is undeniably gorgeous..but i like her with a lighter shade…she should add some highlights a couple shades lighter to the dark…she looks beautiful anyhow/…..

Dani on

I agree that it looks fake because it is one color. Natural is better….

L on

She is so beautiful, but you would never know it with that color of hair. She looks all washed out. If she stays with it she should add some demension to it so that it looks more natural.

nummy on

definately caramel, the dark looks too harsh against her face but the highlights are soft and warmer.

amanda on

i think she looks more emoooo

Zoey on

Hate It!!!!!!!

who cares on

I agree with Sandra- but I think Carmen can wear a lot of hair colors, and while I donn’t particulararly like her, she has gorgeous eyes

Kelly on

she looked so much better before
with her lighter hair and curls.
but shes gorgeous either way

Judy on

I think she looks really good in blonde, dark do is ok but it washes her out she looks much older. She is gorgeous no matter what, but I prefer her blonde.

Jamie on

Carmen looks great in any color, any style! The blonde was bright and bubbly, the light brunnette was cute but mysterious, and now the dark brunnette is sophisticated but sexy! My personal fav– the new dark brunnette really works!

randa on

i hate her hair dark… go back carmen!

Jess on

i think it looks much more mature then what she previously stiled. i adore it.

Anna on

Blonde

melli on

i hate it

haley on

like the darker color. it looks more natural. she looks much more put-together.

Susan on

Neither Carmen or Cameron are flattered by this color!

Capri on

i think that her hair looks thinner now that it’s darker, and her face looks much paler, she should really dye it back to blonde

Stacy on

She is Stunning with dark hair! She is is Stunning no matter what hair color, I just think she looks better with darker hair! ;)

Roxanne on

The dark greasy hair makes her look like she hasn’t seen much soap and hot water lately. Shampoo is your friend, use it regualarly girl.

lee lee on

i dont love it….. nor do i hate it. it’s cool i guess. hell next year she’ll be rocking RED!

Cara on

It’s beautiful. Maybe a teeny bit lighter?

Casey on

I don’t really like either, but if i had to say which one looked better i would have to say the blonde look

Rachel on

She has great hair nomatter what!

STELLA on

I LIKE LIGHTER HAIR ON CARMEN- SHE LOOKS MORE TAN AND GLOWING- ITS SOFTER. THIS DARK MAKES HER LOOK SO PASTY WHITE AND GHOSTLY. ITS HARD AND MAKES HER LOOK WAY OLDER- IT LOOKS DYED AND ARTIFICIAL. BLONDE HIGHLIGHTS – LOOKS MORE NATURAL- SHE USUALLY HIGHLIGHTS IT WITH GOLDEN AND I LOVE. SHES GOT BANGS NOW AND LIGHTER HAIR AND LOOKS AWESOME- SHE LOOKS YOUNGER.EVERYONE IS COPYING HER. THE BANGS DRAW YOU TO HER EYES RATHER THAN THOSE LONG LAYERS THAT WEIGHED FACE DOWN.
