Blake Lively Becomes a Redhead!

Blake Lively Red Hair
Rex USA

Spotted: Blake Lively ditching her blonde locks for a new, reddish hue! The Gossip Girl star stunned at the TIME 100 Gala in New York City Tuesday night, but her gorgeous green Zuhair Murad dress wasn’t the only thing onlookers were talking about. The actress — the new face of Chanel handbags — arrived on the red carpet sporting strawberry-tinged locks. “It’s for the film Hick,” Lively told PEOPLE. “I thought [my character] needed red hair. It helps when you’re playing a role, when I don’t feel like myself. And I don’t really feel like myself with red hair.” Colorist Rona O’Connor transformed Lively’s locks about a month ago, however, the actress managed to fly under the radar following her last public appearance at CinemaCon in early April. So how does she like her new look? “I love it,” she gushed. “I feel like Ariel.” We love Lively’s new hue, but what do you think? Tell us: What do you think of Lively’s red hair?

Blake is one of my favorites and she looks gorgeous either way…I like the red hair, but I must say I definitely prefer her blonde!!

Anna on

Same, Sarah ;-)

Julie on

Her hair looks very pretty, shiny, soft…But it just seems to blend in a little too much with her skin tone. Make’s her skin look orangey as well.

jd on

girl is absoulutely GORGEOUS any color of hair. I think she is just stunning, looks great Blake

I’m really excited to see Hick. It also stars Chloe Morets, who is just amazing. It’s an Indie tho, so who knows when or if it will ever come out.

Claire on

Blake is a stunning young lady in whatever hair color she chooses for herself. She has AMAZING style – always looks HOT. Wish i could spend a day in her fabulous closets!!!

teekay on

I agree with the comment that the hair colour is too close to her skin tone now. Maybe if she wore less bronzer or the red in hair was darker… not sure.

If she has to do it for a role, so be it. But, she is much more beautiful as a blonde and I hope she gets back to it soon! Red is not for all people; most cannot do it well and it is very unattractive on most. Most people would look better blonde or have some blonde streaks in their hair.

It is a nice color but I agree to close to skin tone, when you change your hair color you have to change your makeup etc,,,

Sandy Cheeks on

This color doesn’t flatter her at all… She doesn’t have the natural coloring for a redhead to pull red hair. Trust me, I’m a secret redhead under my blond hair. It definitely looks fake.

Suez on

Anyone else think she looks like Bryce Dallas Howard?

Daphne on

Everyone is being kind, which is nice for a change, but I’m sorry, her hair isn’t really red. It looks like she dyed it with colored hairspray for Halloween and it’s starting to wash out. I’m glad she is enjoying it and hope that it looks better in person, but from here it’s an odd, totally fake hue. I’d have preferred something a bit more natural-looking. (Like an Amy Adams’ red.)

Jay on

I love the red, so much. She reminds me of Ariel too haha <3

Kelli on

I think a darker red would have been more complimentary, maybe a dark auburn – but she is definitely better as a blonde. Gorgeous all the way around anyway though and a huge fan!

LC on

I think she looks HAWT

XXOXXO on

Natural redheads do it best ;-) Her skin tone is far too dark to pull off the redhead look–I think blonde fits her more than the red.

And-why do people always insist on making the eyebrows + hair match?–No natural redhead has red eyebrows…it’s either very blonde eyebrows/eyelashes–or brown tone (light or very dark).

lexie on

Most attractive women with long blonde hair don’t look very good with other hair colors/lengths. Sorry to say, Ms. Lively is another case-in-point.

lena on

at first look her hair looked shiny and soft, but when I looked at her whole face i realized the color isn’t bright enough, just looks like an average brown and makes her look like an average girl. She’s prettier than that!

Oh well, looks aren’t supposed to matter anyways.

Jon on

I like Blake Lively’s new Red Hair! Also, Congrats to Demi Lovato’s Friend, Tiffany Thornton, who got Engaged a Couple of Months ago, and it’s nice Demi Lovato will be one of her Bridsemaids!

Andy on

To distract from her second nose / warty mole thing that always puts me off on screen.

Elle on

She looks great as usual!

I disagree with the comment that red hair is “unattractive on most people”. So untrue!!

Deb on

I don’t care what that woman does to herself she always rocks the look.

Natasha on

Blake is a very interestingly gorgeous girl, and I love the coppery-orange red hair she’s sporting! I think it makes her look more exotic, and I’m that she took a chance with such a lovely hue. I was surprised to find this out though, because I thought she would be one of the last of hollywood women to go red. All in all, love the look Blake!
