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

NICOLE ROCKS! I really admire her for extracting herself from the Hollywood bull and becoming a real woman. I am glad for her family that she did not become a statistic of Hollywood. YAY! You go gurl! Oh and the hair…do you gurl…I think (and really it does not matter what I think) that with her darker skin tone that her natural color with highlights works best…

I like her as a brunette.

Brunette hair is more flattering to Nicole’s complexion, but she can get away with blonde locks.

she looks great either way. Too bad hair dye is so damaging!

She looks so much better with darker hair. She looks part hispanic and the blonde always washes her out. She looks gorgeous with dark brown hair…and younger!

Yes! It looks great on her. Love her and her cute little family!

Normally, I think pretty much everyone looks better as a brunette, but Nicole actually looks so much better as a blonde. For some reason, the darker hair really made her nose look larger and made her look washed out. The blonde just compliments her so much better.

LOVE IT!!!!!!

She looks gorgeous either way if you ask me, but I prefer Nicole with dark hair… loving the bob though! :-)
