Nicole Richie Swaps Brunette for Blonde: Love It or Hate It?

08/27/2010 at 11:00 AM ET

Bye-bye brunette! After eight months of rocking raven locks, Nicole Richie took to Twitter yesterday to share a totally new look. Tweeting, “Let’s Do A Makeover!”, the star shared this self-portrait twitpic of her new honey blonde, tousled bob. Never one to shy from changing up her style, Nicole regularly shifts from red carpet elegance to boho cool. And when it comes to trying out new hair colors, she’s always taken a laid-back approach, joking in December, “I feel smarter already,” when she traded blonde for brunette. Tell us: Did Nicole make a smart choice in going back to blonde or is she better as a brunette? –Katherine Kluznik Rentmeester

I love it. I think she looks so much better as a blond. She looks cute with dark hair too,but I prefer the blond. She has strong features and the blond just softens them, like it does for Jessica Simpson.

She’s been blonde before. She looks good as a blonde… and a brunette.

She looks nice both ways, but I think she looks alot prettier as a brunette. There is enough phony blondes in California. I am a brunette, and Guys do like Brunettes too!

Who really cares about this girl? she is famous for doing nothing. she had a couple of kids. Big Deal. No talent, no known skills, never had a real job, and she changes her hair colour just as often as most of us change our underwear, does she not? Must be a really slow entertainment news day, I guess. Not a really attractive sort at the best of times so I don’t imagine this hair colour will help her much in the looks department either.

I like her better with darker hair. She’s part Afrtican-American, and they never look good as a blonde. She has just enough of the A-A pigmentation in her skin where blonde looks jarring on her, to me. I say go highlighted. That way, she can have both colors and not look weird.

There are more important things in the world going on. Who cares about some idiot who has kids in sin and no talent.
