Bye-Bye Blonde! Scarlett Goes Brunette: Love It Or Hate It?

02/03/2009 at 01:44 PM ET

Entertainment Press/Splash News

Her smile may have been just as bright as ever at last night’s world premiere of He’s Just Not That Into You in L.A., but Scarlett Johansson revealed her dark side on the red carpet with new long dark brown locks. Over the past couple months the star has been gradually going darker and darker, moving away from blonde bombshell look that she made her signature style — and that are played up in her new Dolce & Gabbana The Makeup ads. Tell us: Do you prefer Scarlett as a brunette, or do you miss her old blonde hair?

Natalie on

I actually think she looks better as a brunette. Oddly enough.

amy on

she looks stunning with any hair color.

Jenny on

I love that shade – it doesn’t make her look washed out at all. I thinks he looks gorgeous.

VnnPnk on

She looks much better as a brunette. The blonde washes her out & she looks too pale.

krystal on

she looks waaaay better as a brunette.

Jennifer on

I like her a lot, but I think she looks gorgeous with blonde hair, I don’t like the brown on her. Then again, maybe I’m just used to it.

Debbie on

She looks much better as a brunette…much more natural

Trish on

She looked nice blonde – but I am surprised to say that she looks stunning as a brunette.

Toni B on

She is a very pretty and classy girl. She can do it even with blue hair. Much love to her!!!!!

Southern_Goodness on

I love the dark hair. She’s beautiful — on the inside and out. From what I’ve seen of her, we could use more actors/actresses like her to set a good example and stand up for worthy causes. Good for her — and her brunette-ness :)

*KT on

It looks ok, but the blonde looked better. This won’t last…she’ll be back to blonde in a matter of weeks.

Jane on

I don’t like it. She looks like groucho Marx with those eyebrows.
Blondes have more fun. Just like Britney, she will be back 2 blonde soon!

just cuz on

it’s much better than the fake platinum. but it still doesn’t look natural.

Jon on

Scarlett looks good as a brunette.

kelly on

I like the color a lot, but I wish she’d had it styled with a tad more volume. It is a little too reminiscent of Cher this way.

ally on

Dark hair adds some drama to her features. It’s a fantastic switch.

Chris on

She looks like a Latina. Muy Caliente :)

BGIRL on

Her new hair color looks soo… pretty on her and it brings her features out.

Katarina on

The girl could have green hair and she would look gorgeous.

Sofia on

I love this shade of brunette, Scarlett looks beautiful- then agian, she looks gorgeous with any shade :)

carley on

yea she waz getting to pretty 4 me..

Bubblegum on

I love the brunette! I like her as a not quite platinum blonde, or this.

Shavon on

Scarlett is so beautiful she could have green hair and look good!

jd on

I think she looks stunning. Actually looks like a friend of mine. Beautiful, definetly better than blond!

Breck on

I Love Scarlett. I think she is a great actress and just plain gorgeous. I just love her. She looks great with both hair colors.

sierrafaith1 on

Have to say I like her better blonde. Although, she is very pretty and could get away with either color.

Katie on

I like it blonde…
I mean, this looks alright…
:) Shes beautiful no matter what.

Ohioan on

She looks great – the dark brown sets off her great skin tone better than blonde.

Pamela on

I don’t like it much, but I think maybe it’s because to me her hair looks flat and limp. If it had more volume, I would like it.

Antony on

She’s stunning! :) She seems like a decent human being and her hubby is SO HOT!

McKenna on

Nope nope nope. She instantly looked twenty years older to me. Her skin-tone and facial features scream “Blonde!!!!” to me, and so the brown color just looks misplaced. A major “thumbs down”.

me on

what kind of sunglasses is rebecca romijn wearing in the star tracks feb 3, 2209 photo?

Audrey on

well, i think she’s beautiful any way she does her hair, but personally i like the blond better. it suits her better, because blonde os like “classic scarlett johanssen”. she should try a scarlett colour too.

Coll on

I just don’t think she is a pretty girl at all.

Glinda on

Honestly, I don’t think it’s a very flattering color on her. She looks better with her hair lighter, doesn’t have to be blonde, but lighter than this would be better.

puff on

I might be the only one here, but I don’t like the brunette. She has beautiful features, but that colour is just too dark for her skin tone. I think the blonde adds to her retro look.

Emj on

She looks great as a brunette. Though she did look really beautiful as a blonde (Especially in the island). She’s also one of the few women/actresses that I know that can be blonde and not get the tag of a dumb blonde.
Nice colour though. Peace Out!

candy button on

Scarlett is so beautiful it wouldnt matter if her hair was purple!

Donna on

No, she looks too generic this way. She looks a lot like Megan Fox in some photos, and a lot more Hispanic in some other ones. Though maybe this is due to the straightness of the style.

Emma on

I think she is extremely attractive with both shades, however I think a warm blonde suits her better. It just brightens her up and she looks less washed out. But I liked it when she was a darkish blonde, not bleach, more honey tones in her hair.
