Should Charlize Theron Go Back to Blonde?

02/06/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

Charlize Theron has been laying low these days, so when we saw her last week at the East of Havana screening in NYC, we were totally surprised by how different she looked. We tend to think of Charlize as a sunny blonde so it took us a minute to fully register her severely slicked back brunette hair and red lips. Clearly, she’s a beauty either way, but the looks are so different that we can’t resist comparing! Tell us: Should Charlize go back to blonde? Or do you like her new brunette locks?

P.S. While you’re thinking about haircolor, what do you think of Jessica Simpson’s new reddish-brown do? Let us know!

go back to BLONDE!!!

Jackie on

She looks beautiful in both pictures. I think that she looks better with her hair DOWN rather than PINNED BACK.

Nicole on

I think she looks gorgeous either way, but I think blonde does her more justice.

Becky on

i think she looks like a totally different person with brown hair. she looks good in both hair colors but i like the blond on her better.

Sydni on

I say blonde.
I think that the brunette is a little severe for her.
Blonde better suits her skin tone.

rachel b. on

personally, i like her hair blonde and not dark on Charlize Theron.

She looks good either way, but I like the dark hair she sported in Aeon Flux. I don’t like it pulled back this tightly though. It’s too severe.

I think that Charlize looks million times better with darker hair. Blonde hair look country for her and she looks shophisticated with darker hair. And this dark shade don’t make her look older! Go on, girl, you look AWSOME!!!!!!

Maybe it’s her hairstyle, but the darker hair makes her appear older. If it weren’t for the style, I think she would look okay in either color.
