Blonde or brunette: 30 stellar examples to get inspired or come to your senses

Using the example of celebrities, we analyze how hair color can change the appearance, give or, conversely, deprive of individuality.

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

The decision to repaint, as practice shows, most often occurs when a new stage begins in life or we are especially inspired by some kind of screen / podium image. A radical change of image requires both courage and a clear understanding of how comfortable the changes will be. To inspire you to experiment (or to protect you from it), we have selected three dozen star transitions from the light side to the dark side and back. 

Melania Trump

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

The former first lady of the United States lightened her hair by the end of 2018. The image turned out unexpectedly bright, because earlier Melania had long preferred a chestnut-red shade close to natural, and the maximum she allowed herself was partial highlighting of individual strands (bronding). Theories immediately began to multiply as to why Mrs. Trump had dyed her hair, for example, it was suggested that blonde successfully masks gray hair (look for all the funny explanations of this fact in the article “Why Melania Trump became blonde?”). We will note that the light shade definitely refreshed the wife of President Trump, but at the same time made too much accents in makeup — emphasized eyebrows and intense “smokies”. If Melania decides to stay blonde, she will have to master the skills of natural make—up – there is no doubt that for fair-haired people it should be less bright. Melania also has to carefully monitor the lighting during photo shoots: electric light often gives the blonde an unsightly yellowness, and for Mrs. Trump this is fraught with constant comparisons of her hair with the famous hair of her spouse.

Margot Robbie

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

Margot Robbie goes equally well with both light and dark shades. But still, the actress prefers blonde, and when she, repainted in chocolate, appeared at the Oscar ceremony in 2014 (then “The Wolf of Wall Street” with her participation was in the nominees for the best film of the year), everyone gasped in amazement. Brunette Margot looks languid and sultry, but still this hair color, coupled with intense makeup, instantly adds a couple of extra years to the girl. Hopefully in the near future Margot will not radically change her image.

Bella Hadid

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

Bella Hadid once surprised fans with a post on Twitter: in the photo, the model is depicted with a platinum blonde hair and even with a pink tint. It’s good that the younger Hadid did not allow herself more such liberties, visually equating her with Kim Kardashian (by the way, she is also on our list): Bella is a miracle how pretty the dark-haired one is.

Jennifer Lawrence

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

The dark color favors Jen: she dyed her hair into a brunette for the sake of the “Hunger Games”, highly noted by critics, and with curls of a shade of bitter chocolate she received an Oscar statuette for the film “My Boyfriend is crazy”. Let the blonde not be marked by such creative successes, “Joy” remained only in the “Oscar” nominees, but for “Mom!” the actress was nominated for the cinematic anti-award “Golden Raspberry” at all, but still it suits the girl more.

Angelina Jolie

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

In recent years, Angelina rarely experiments with style, preferring a “stable” vamp- dark hair-red lipstick. But it wasn’t always like that. For the film “Life or something like that” (2002) she tried on an image a la Marilyn Monroe and lost all her chic in a platinum blonde. If it’s true that Marcheline Bertrand, the actress’ mother, taught her from infancy to toning her hair in a dark color, then we take off our hats to her foresight: dark Jolie goes much more than light.

Amber Heard

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

The natural blonde Amber Heard wore both pink and red, and kept a dark one for Johnny Depp, a big lover of contrasts. An interesting experience, given the fact that the chosen color is not much darker than the actress’ own dark blond base. However, for quite a long time she has been holding on to the usual blonde.

Emma Stone

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

Neither dark nor light is fully ideal for Emma Stone’s hair. The first makes her a double of Lindsay Lohan, and the second makes her look like an ex-“peppercorn” Emma Bunton. It is remarkable that the actress does not unnecessarily part with the perfect shade of bronze shimmering in the sun for her.

Dakota Johnson

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

Dakota went blonde quite a few times: in 2006, 2010 and 2012. However, all this time the girl, possibly copying her mother (Melanie Griffith is a “branded” blonde), chose a not very successful shade – too light, light and airy, it was in clear dissonance with Johnson’s color type and skin tone, simplified her face and turned into a “girlfriend from the next door.” In our opinion, Dakota looks much more classic dark, which makes her look fresher, and the image is more expensive.

Coco Rocha

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

The Canadian supermodel is a well-known experimenter. Getting a haircut for a boy or radically repainting is not difficult for her. We like both options, but note that in the “dark version” Coco looks much more “expensive-rich”.

Gigi Hadid

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

The story of Gigi Hadid’s reincarnations is typical for all top models: what you can’t do for the sake of a contract. I am glad that modern fashion stylists rarely fight with the original “summer” color type of the elder Hadid and force her to repaint. In general, it suits her both dark and light, but still multifaceted, with “sunny” highlights, natural light brown is much more.

Victoria Beckham

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

In 2007, following Victoria Beckham, thousands of girls dyed their hair platinum blonde. Perhaps this is the brightest beauty period for the former “posh spice”: it was hard not to notice the former Adams then. And even though we miss the blonde bob Vicky, but we admit that she is right about everything in its own time. Today, a deep dark shade makes the appearance of the British style icon and mother of four children more elegant and expensive.

Robert Downey Jr.

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

We do not deny the possibility of radical reincarnation to men: Robert Downey dyed himself blond for the role of blue-eyed Australian Kirk Lazarus in Soldiers of Failure, and this brought its dividends in the form of an Oscar nomination and an additional portion of audience sympathy to Tony Stark’s asset.

Katy Perry

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

The indefatigable lover of change, Katie, could have stopped in her beauty experiments on a rich and dense shade of a black wing, which gave her face a noble charm and resemblance to actresses of old Hollywood (admit it, looking at this photo, did you also think of Vivien Leigh?).

Reese Witherspoon

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

Reese Witherspoon’s natural hair color is dark blond. The actress has long preferred a golden shade and does not allow herself to appear in public even with a centimeter of dark roots grown out. But the moments when she was on duty painted in creamy chocolate, clearly prove that it also suits her very well.

Kirsten Dunst

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

But who exactly benefited from the transition to the blonde category is Kirsten Dunst. The natural “myshino”-light brown shade of hair was well, very simple for the pretty, but very atypical face of the actress. Blonde hair successfully emphasized the eyes and added lightness to the image. It’s good that during pregnancy (in 2018, Dunst and her partner actor Jesse Plemons gave birth to their first child), she did not think to change her chosen image.

Zooey Deschanel

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

But Zooey Deschanel is a natural brunette, and a radical change of color confirms this. Blonde hair has discolored and deprived the face of the actress of colors . not even red lipstick saved. In the form of a blonde, the girl ceased to be recognizable.

Olivia Wilde

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

For a very long time, Olivia was faithful to the chosen style: a natural light brown shade of hair and long mirror curls. After the birth of the first baby, the actress was drawn to change: she cut her hair short and then dyed it. In a short time, Olivia managed to be both a bright blonde and a burning brunette. We concluded that the well-known animal defender has a soft light shade to her face more than others.

Kendall Jenner

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

Representatives of the Kardashian family like to divide the color palette as clearly as possible into black and white. Kendall is no exception, but we really want to advise her to diversify her coloring techniques and try to wear more complex and multifaceted shades (and in the event that she decides to stop at blonde, also lighten her eyebrows).

Elizabeth Olsen

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

Light highlights on the hair of the youngest of the Olsen sisters clearly shows how the color can have an anti-age effect: the blonde Elizabeth looks several years younger than herself with medium-blonde, which cannot be said about her older twin sisters.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

The actress staunchly remains faithful to the length and color of her hair, and we are ready to admit that she is right: a natural caramel-blond shade will forgive and cheapen her image (however, as well as bangs).

Orlando Bloom

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

Not so long ago (in 2016) Orlando Bloom brightened up again, and fans immediately scolded the actor for looking like Justin Bieber (a good compliment to the 39-year-old Bloom at that time). The casket just opened: the shooting of the picture “Smart Chase: Fire and Earth” required a radical change of image. The sacrifice was in vain – the tape had a low rating and collected a bad box office at the box office.

Anne Hathaway

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

Ann in the image of a bright sexy blonde appeared at the Met Gala 2013 and struck everyone on the spot. It happened almost immediately after the actress cut her luxurious curls and cut her hair short for the role in Les Miserables: two bold beauty metamorphoses at once, and Hathaway was immediately recorded as a revolutionary. But almost immediately Ann returned to the dark color, and we support her: it successfully and nobly sets off her pale skin and emphasizes warm brown eyes.

Uma Thurman

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

Brunette Uma Thurman looks unusual, but not too organic. A calm sunny blonde looks much more to the actress’ face (and it’s not that we’re used to it at all).

Carey Mulligan

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

The star of “The Great Gatsby” experimented a lot with color, repainting herself in light brown, then in copper, then in chestnut. The latter proves that dark shades suit her no less than a blonde, but the latter makes her image a little more romantic (as does the length of her hair a little longer than average).

Cameron Diaz

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

Cameron with dark hair looks, perhaps, more bright and impressive, but at the same time older and simpler. The saturated chocolate actress is forced to complement the appropriate makeup, and the skin prone to imperfections forces her to use bronzates at the same time, which significantly ages Diaz. At the same time, blonde hair wonderfully emphasizes her sky-blue eyes. Our verdict is only blonde.

Rihanna

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

Blonde for Rihanna (however, like any other African-American woman in her place, and even Meghan Markle) “a little too much. It is commendable that the singer has recently been more likely to prefer color games within dark shades. 

Charlize Theron

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

The period of dark hair (and eyebrows-threads) belonged by and large to the “early” Charlize and her search for her own ideal image. Now the actress does not hide that she prefers light shades, does not paint dark without production necessity, and we fully support her in this constancy.

Emma Watson

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

Emma Watson, as befits a true Briton, is moderately conservative. We have not seen her with a pure shade of blonde on her hair, but the sunlight and glare, which very conveniently gilded the hair of “Hermione” in this photo, give a good idea that it would be very becoming to her.

Brad Pitt

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

Another light male inspiration in the person of Brad Pitt, who did everything with himself, and grew his hair, and shaved bald, and painted himself. In general, we would recommend a bright blonde to the actor, but not in this honey-creamy yellow shade: a cold palette suits him more.

Kim Kardashian

Блондинка или брюнетка: 30 звездных примеров, чтобы вдохновиться или одуматься

Closing the inspiring top 30, Kim is the embodiment of the famous saying “The best is the enemy of the good.” Let’s say once again that when deciding on cardinal changes, you need to carefully analyze the compatibility of the desired result with your own capabilities (and above all, with the color type).
