Update: Carmen Electra's Busy Hair Week!

10/27/2006 at 12:00 PM ET

Earlier this week, Carmen Electra ditched her warm blonde color for dark brown. And she has changed it again! Wednesday night, Carmen showed off her new blond highlights at a party in L.A. Her reps tell us that the brunette look was just for a photo shoot, and she wanted to go back to being a little lighter. Our readers seemed torn about which look they like better, so we’d like to think she took your advice and split the difference! We’re digging this chocolate base with caramel highlights (are we still talking about hair or candy?). Tell us: what do you think of Carmen’s newest hair color? Would you ever change your hair color just for the day?

Click here to see what she looked like earlier in the week!

This is better than blonde or brown. She found her perfect color. It’s gorgeous. I love it !! :)

Kristin on

I agree- a nice combination of the 2 colors.

j on

if you go back to the first blog, i TOTALLY called this!! i knew she’d have some blond back asap!!

Kitty_Kat on

I don’t like this color as much as i like the brown. Brunettes are totally in right now!

Alicia on

Gorgeous! Perfect color for her!

rayray on

YES! YES! YES! She got it right on target…just a little blonde and a little chocolate. It looks beautiful. And yes, I would change my haircolor for a day…I’ve done it before. I took my hair to a dark blonde, then went ultra light the next day. What fun! Carmen always looks great, but she looks much better with the honey blonde intermingled in her hair!!!!

Her Hair looks great no matter what color it is! I do like her as a brunette though (back in the good old Prince days). I think she is one of the most beautiful women. I’m glad she has ditched the trash and jumped on the class train!

Norah on

THIS IS PERFECT! The blonde was too blonde, the brown was almost black. She could not of picked a more perfect color for herself. Don’t change the color again Carmen, this color is toooooo perfect.

Here’s what I want to know. What in the world are these celebs using that makes their hair SHINE after so much processing?!? If I get just one dye job it’s all frizz for me….I’d like to know what she uses for shine – I could care less about the color!

jean on

the shine comes from pricey silicone jels and sprays they reflect light and makes it shine…..as for her hair colour? I love it

Erica on

Very nice. Looks latina!

cassie deangelis on

i love carmines new hair, she looks great both wayss…

Sandra on

Hey j, I remeber when you said that she should go in between the colors. When I saw this blog I remebered that someone suggested the exact thing:)!

Jen on

Carmen’s hair looks great now, it works with her skin tone really well.

eva on

wats her natural color?

Jovanna on

I’m lovin her color its kind of a combiation of both colors she ha beore she looks very pretty.

Candice Carlisle on

Yeah, sure the hair looks much better, but what are those small red bumps all over her lips??? Hmmmmm…

sarah on

looks a lot better than that morticia adams color she had before. she should have fired her colorist the first time she dyed it that dark!

Andrea on

Her hair looks nice, but she could use a little tweezing of the eyebrows and a lot less makeup.

Beth on

There is no doubt that Carmen Electra is gorgeous, but her make-up always looks the same. She is a spokesperson for a make-up company, and I wish she would try some different looks (with her make-up). She always has on tons of eyeliner, and a nude lip gloss. I wish she would lighen up on the eye make-up and try a bolder lip shade.

Libby on

She only looks good with dark hair, it really brings out her eyes and makes her look exotic. She is beautiful.

Shea on

Oh my gosh, what I would give to have her hairdresser, and her hair. Yes, her eyes stand out alot more with medium brown, but her eyes are still more beautiful than most even with blonder hair. I just wish I had the same veratility. She s hot no matter what!



lizmari on

i really like her hair..i was thinking of doing highlights on my hair too but i wasnt sure wat color to put..i think i might go with this one :) lol

n on

It doesn’t matter if its in or not. but whatever it suits her, then it SUITS her. I believe she was just covering up by saying she changed it for photo shoot.

I believe that she received negative comments about her dark hair like they prefer lighter hair color on her better. So then she changed it back to lighter color.

So yes, she does look better with lighter color!

amanda on
