Hilary Duff Cites Reason for Constant Hair Changes: Boredom!

Hilary Duff explains her constant hair changesDaniel Boczarski/WireImage; Andrew Evans/PR Photos

When it comes to her hair, Hilary Duff has been experimenting with the color wheel lately. But the newlywed star — who recently went back to blonde after going brunette (and cutting bangs) — has an explanation for all of the quick changes: boredom. “I was like ‘I’m bored and I like wanted to dye my hair really really blonde,’ and then I got scared — and then it turned out really blonde,” she told PEOPLE at the The Beauty Detox Solution book launch party in West Hollywood on Wednesday. “I haven’t been this blonde and my sister’s like calling me Lizzie [McGuire] which is so funny,” she says, referring to her star-making role on the Disney Channel. “I’m like, ‘No please don’t call me that!’ [But] it might just be that I feel like I’m really blonde because I haven’t been in so long.” While experimenting with her color recently, Duff just couldn’t get it exactly like she wanted it. “I was at the salon two days a week for the past two weeks and it was driving me crazy. But you know when you’re just not happy? You’re like, ‘I need this tweaked and fixed,’ and so it was just me being mental,” she admits. But no matter how “mental” she becomes about her hair color, Duff says hubby Mike Comrie loves her regardless. “He loves me blonde,” she says, “but when we met I had brown hair so I think he loves me anyway.” Lucky gal!

Aw. lol. How cute. She’s one of those people I’m always jealous of for making whatever color work but I do like her best blonde with the bangs. wasn’t she blonde in ’10 Just fits her sunny happy personality better. Haha and she is a mature Liz, has turned out so good and what a stunner can’t believe it’s been almost a decade and she is married and thinking of kids of her own.

I swear Hilary can pull off any look! She looks beautiful and glowy happy. LOVE the bangs/blonde. My #1 look on her.

Ashley on

Haha, How funny. I recently went through that same thing! I was bored and wanted a change, so I dyed my hair auburn and cut my hair short at an angel. I’m super happy with my results and I’m constantly getting complements wherever I go. =) She looks great in whatever color she chooses, the bangs suit her well!

sara on

love how any hair colour takes her so well!! love her as a blonde tho, suits her personality

Tanya Reese on

She looks beautiful either way. But i like her with Brown hair. It brought out her eyes.

Holly on

Can Hillary Duff complete a sentence without the word “like” in it? Isn’t valley girl talk from the 1990s? She certainly does not make herself come across as very intelligent. Please try to expand your vocabulary!

Nerdista on

I think she needs a job. I’m sure it’s thrilling to talk to her, “hey, what have you been doing?”, “oh, just dying my hair LIKE every two days!”.

Jennifer on

LIKE I can’t LIKE believe that I LIKE even bothered LIKE reading this. LIKE I don’t have better things to LIKE do with my LIKE life.
**************************************************
LADIES, LADIES, LADIES: When you say “LIKE” every- other-word, you just end up sounding immature, insecure, and not particularly smart. It’s the most annoying verbal trait I can think of.

i think the boredom is with her hair, natalie…it has nothing to do with her being married at 22….does everyone not remember that our ancestors got married real young….god some of you people are such hyprocrites. my parents got married at 19 and trust me they didn’t get bored with each other…so everyone get off your high horse and leave Hilary Duff alone. I think she is great with whatever color she dyes her hair

I wanted to ask, “Why do critics read articles like these and then post comments?” But then I realized in our world today, we need them in order to grow tougher skin and to be better. Also, to learn how to ignore people. I like Hilary Duff. I think she is beautiful. It isn’t easy to allow yourself to be the criticism of so many people in an article with the last sentence asking, “what do you think?”

Truthfully, I think the blonde hair color does make her look more innocent, but that is how we were introduced to her. However, that does not mean she is Lizzie on Disney. She still has that “Girl next door” feel to her and that to me isn’t a bad thing.

Lena on

I like that she keeps it fresh.

ruthie on

I think it’s sad that we’re talking about her hair changes, instead of her acting career. What happened there? Do we really need to know every little things that actors and actresses do.. really? And saying ‘like’ all the time is a junior high/high school thing to do. Crazy. She’s older than that, right?

Adrienne on

Meeeow, ladies. Jealous much?! She’s beautiful.

A on

She’s a young millionaire…what else has she got to worry about? She’s lucky and that’s good for her! Oh, and I like her better as a blonde. :)

Janice Rannals on

She is so adorable! My sister can pull off any color she wants too and I get so jealous! Love the blonde and love Hilary!

Kyley on

I wonder how many times Hilary Duff can say the word “like”

Marky on

You people have got to be kidding about high-schoolers being the ones who say “like” all the time. I am a well-educated person with friends who have Master’s Degrees and I hear “like” every 3 words from some of them. It just becomes a habit for quite a few people. Irritating, but not the end of the world, and certainly not worse than the rudeness some of you have in constantly criticizing others for every little thing.

Hillary seems to be a nice young woman who is more mature than many her age, and just enjoys having fun with her hair style and color. She looks great, no matter what she does with it. As for getting married at 22, my nephew married at 21 and seems to be doing fine 7 years later, is published, and working on his Ph.D. Not everyone who is 22 is an airhead.

Natasha on

Hilary has always been experimental with her hair color, she’s not big on cutting it though, which is cool. She looks great in any hair color, but I do prefer her as a blonde, since it’s her natural color. I don’t think it’s bad that she says the word like alot. At least she doesn’t end any sentence with a cuss, and she’s totally not insecure, and she is smart as well. Love Hilary SFM!!!

Honestly? I think there are more crucial/pressing things in life than hair color. If she is “bored” she can do more productive things with her time.

Stephanie on

She is bored because she got married at 22?? I got married at 22 and have NEVER been bored. We will celebrate 15 years of marriage next week. That was just a dumb comment.(@Natalie).

Katharine on

Hillary is a pretty girl, but I like her better with the brown hair. It looks more natural and brings out her eyes. And very blonde hair is such a Hollywood cliche!
