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!

I agree with Becky. She looks so totally different with brown hair. I’ve been seeing pictures of her and just couldn’t believe it was her. She looks great either way to me. She is such a beautiful woman!

Is it just me, or does the color and style age her like 10 years????

She’s a cute brunette, but much better as a blonde!

C on

She’s gorgeous either way.

blonde, much much better. Brown makes her look secretary-ish. No offense…she’s just the stereotype secretary look with that color and style. Please go back to blonde!

I think that the dark would look much better in a dif style. But she looks more natural and less severe with the blonde…

well this is one girl who can pull off both hair colors and look good with either color……however the dark one makes her look older and more sophisticated….were the blond makes her look cute and playfully young …I enjoy both looks on her not everyone can pull it off!

Nicole on

I think the dark hair looks so sophisticated. I definitely prefer it over the blonde.

I love her, I think she always looks amazing.

Can’t wait for her upcoming projects.
