What Do You Think of Sienna Miller as a Brunette?

09/24/2007 at 05:00 PM ET


Though we’ve seen lots of stars go dark for roles in the past few months — Jessica Biel and Mischa Barton pop to mind — we had to look twice when Sienna Miller appeared with long brunette hair on the set of her new film Hippie Hippie Shake. She was almost unrecognizable with her wig on! We definitely prefer the British star with her normal blonde bob that highlights her big blue eyes and unique fashion sense, but we want to know what you think. Tell us: Do you like Sienna with brunette hair? Or should she stick to blonde off camera?

Wow she looks just like Kelly Preston, I like the dark hair..but Sienna is cute either way.

jen on

she really DOES look like kelly preston….wow! i think it looks good. =)

april on

she looks really nice as a brunette
i dno what one i prefer

Lynn on

She is completely beautiful no matter what! I’m jealous!!!

Ashleigh on

i think she looks tenfold prettier with blond hair…the brunette looks kinda dingy&overwhelms her face.


Dont like it!Normally brunettes look great especially with feautres like her but the color of brown is to ashy! It even has a green tint to it maybe a chocalate brown would be better.

Jenna on

I think she would look good, if she ran a brush threw that. lol. It just looks too messy!

Tru on

I thought she looked like Kelly Preston too. Yeah, I’m not liking this color on Sienna. I like her as a blonde, but it would be nice to see her do something with those black roots she sports with the blonde. I like her as a blonde, a baby blonde to be exact, with some contrast of highlights and lowlights. If she were to ever go to brown, I think she should stick with the honey tones, like honey brown.

Rachel on

Oh my gosh. I didn’t even recognize her. It looks ok but the blonde is much prettier!

Nancy on

I think she looks so much better and much more natural as a brunette.

Kristine on

My hair is something of the same ahir tone, and I’m a dark blonde. I even saw the hair color chart, and I really do think she is a dark ash blonde. I just colored it so its a bit darker than its supposed to be, It suppoed to fit my natural color, my roots;) and if fill loos a bit of the color and I will be soething like this:P

But about the color on Sienna, this I think is for a movie role so I really dont think she has any much of a saying in what its suppoed to be. But if she is considering it as a permanent color, I woul suggest something with a bit more red in it.. a little bit richer color

kim on

I actually think she looks older, it doesn’t do her skin tone any favors, she is beautiful, but looks better as a honey gold tone.

cary on

looks good on her! shes always pretty

Rose on


marianne on

She’s Fergielicious!

MajorFashionCritic [[MFC]] on

Way Better As A Blonde!

It Goes Better With Her Eyes!

Molly on

I don’t like Sienna Miller at all, so NO

Jessica on

I think she’s unattractive either way, honestly. I see no appeal in Sienna Miller. However!, the brunette wig ages her. I’ve seen her in it before and every time she looks about 15 years older. The blond hair oddly suits her, right down to the quip about blonds being a little on the stupid, cheerleader side.

Jordan on


alia on

Obviously, she looks better blonde…

But it doesn’t really matter because this is for a movie…
(a hippie one, at that)

Lexi on

I’m sorry but I have to tell the truth. Yes, she looks like Kelly Preston. . . on crack! Her hair looks awful and it doesn’t look natural. Look at the wig center. OMG

jen on

she looks ok

Tracie on

I thought this was Kate Beckinsale. She looks Beautiful.

Marina Sandoval on

I love Vanessa’s fashion style!!! Zac’s smile!!!

Kim on

I think she looks awful in this hair color, but it’s a bit mousy. Maybe a darker/richer color would be more flattering.

alinette on

mmm she is really pretty but she looks a bit older burnette

liz on

it looks like shes wearing a wig

mel on

I love her as a brunette she looks so much better. it brings out her eyes more.. WOW

Anonymous on


Mireille on

Well I think both colors suit her!:)

anna on

no..wayy better blonde

Shelly on

I think she looks just like Kate Beckinsale. The color is alittle dingy on her though.

berry on

Sienna was boring before, and it’s even worse with the mousey brownish locks.

Kristi P on

Kristi p 47 I don’t like it. It makes her look older than she is.

Christine on

I think she looks better as a blonde… the brunette makes her look old… but maybe it is just the tone of it… I think she should go darker

marie urmom on

i think it makes her more smart and intelligent

Jennifer on

I thought this was Kelly Preston, I had to look closer.

I’m a hug fan of Sienna no matter what color hair she has.

Makes me wonder why Britney Spears can’t get a nice wig like this, it actually looks natural.

Anonymous on

She looks better with her hair blonde!!

Bre on

I think she looks like Emma Watson as Hermione Granger. It’s cute, but I agree with Vita. It’s too ashy.

Michelle on

I think she still looks beautiful. She is one of those lucky people that can go blonde OR brunette!

Lisa Marie on

Think she stole one of Britany Spear’s wigs!!

Allison Berryman on

What happens if I don’t like Sienna Miller anyway? She’s a cookie-cutter actress that has nothing new to offer.

Bryanna on

I like it

Marie on

I didn’t even recognize her at first. I think she looks a little bit like Kate Beckinsale.

Myranda on

I thought they were showing a scene from a scary movie. Like Exorsist or something. I don’t like the brunette look.

jess liu on

she looks great either way… looks a bit like Evangeline Lilly/Kate Beckinsale.. both who are gorrrrgeous! !!

V on

Sienna Miller wouldn’t look good no matter if her was brunette, blond or blue. I think she always looks terrible and she looks nothing like Kelly Preston who is gorgeous!

Quiana on

It makes her look…old.

Michelle on

The dark hair suits her, but that wig is too big for her face!!



Hayden on


Blue.Bayou on

This makes her look a little haggard. Like a cheaper version of Kate Beckinsale. She looks younger, and more spirited with blonde hair. This doesn’t suit her, it definitely drabs her down.

unfan on

Who is she? She looks like a bag lady. Who care’s what color her hair is how about a brush? That jacket looks like it came out of a dumpster.

Maya on

I love her both as brunette and blonde. This girl is so beautiful, she can have it both.


Actually in this photo she resembles Kate Beckingsdale. (sp??) From the movie “Click”.
I think she is pretty but her bad fashion sense takes away from it.

Pogue Mahone on

Hard to say; I think she looks good either way; blonde or brunette! I think the blonde made her face look prettier,but her hair looked thinner…the brunette makes her hair look nice and thick!(I wish I had thick hair like that!) How does she get it so full?Is it a wig or hair extensions, perhaps?

Rosanne on

Sienna Miller does not look good at all as a brunette! Tell her to please keep her blonde hair.

ashley on

Sienna has such a gorgeous face that either way she looks beautiful. but I think she looks better with it shorter.

Fatema on

i liek her as a brunette but this shade is horrible she should go for a choclate brown or a dark brunette shade

Jamie on

Sienna will always look beautiful, but in this picture it looks like she’s wearing a brown wig! I’m sure she would look good as a brunnette… maybe in this picture she was having a bad hair day?

Mary on

I think she looks older than she is. I don’t like so much… :/

Robin on

Sienna looks lovely period. She is young and shockingly sophisticated for her age. I just hope she doesn’t burn out too quickly. That is the way of the stars in Hollywood. One minute they are there and the next…bah bye..

anonymos on

She looks better with blonde hair.

missy on


cathy on

You mean that’s not a wig?!?

Victoria on

she looks much better blonde, blonde makes her look prettier

Crystal on

I Love it, when an actor can completely change with somthing so simple as changing hair color, thats when you know she perfect for TV.


she looks older with this werid dark color….

Katey on

I liked her blonde, not sure about this look- could we maybe get a little better pic? I think the coloring will work for her, but this pic is horrible!

Abby on

she has a ton of hair!
i like it though.

Sookie on

I don’t think this look fits her at all… she pretty much lokks like a homeless to me…

sai on

yeah like kelly preston—-


she does not look like kelly preston…but she looks nice…although her blonde does make her eyes stand out…here they look a little dull…

Marg Koppes on

She can pull off both blonde or brunette. Looks great either way she wants to go! She should try red next, she’d probably look fabulous!

Velvet on

I definitely do not like Sienna as a brunette! Geez…I mean she is gorgeous but the dark color makes her look very old. Go back to blonde!

Gail on

OMG, it looks like a wig..or a witch! Stick to the blonde with a decent hairstyle, or she isn’t even recognized.

Lala on

Sienna Miller is overrated in all respects…just cause she looks a bit like Twiggy who cares? She is a horrible actor, and completely non-descript. The cover and pics in Vogue really highlighted how completely plain she is. She is unrecognizable…without her leagues of PR specialists calling the paparazzi…oh I just can’t believe how the hollywood machine manipulates us!

yenci on


Lona Lo on

I like her hair, she looks younger.

melissa on

she looks a little like kate beckinsale in this picture.

camila on

love her like that!!looks much more better

Mily on

My first impression of the picture was: “she looks like a hippie” before I saw it was for a movie. She looks better with blonde hair. However, she still looks gorgey!

Krista on

she’s beautiful, she could pull off anything!
My favorite was her long dark brown hair in Factory Girl. This is beautiful too.
I do have to say I prefer brunette on her as opposed to blonde.

rosie on

still vey pretty. but looks holder.

ALY on

She looks exactly like Kate Beckinsale. I like the borwn on her, it’s a nice change, but I hope one day she goes back to her blonde. I want her to have the long golden hair again that she used to have.

Tweepixie on

Before I used to think she looked like me,now that she changed her haircolour we´re completly identical!!!We could hang our some time!My style is kindda like hers!So let´s say it I´m a mini size version of her :D

ali on

i think she looks much natural with the brown hair but the blonde is great for summer

Daisy on

The har is too long for her petite face shape. The length is horrific, personally, but the colour suits her beautifully.
