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 saw her last week on 1 of the morning news/talk shows (GMA?) and to me, the color seemed to fall somewhere in between blonde and brunette. I personally prefer Charlize as a blonde (as if she’s going to ask me) but this “not light enough to be blonde but not dark enough to be brunette” look doesn’t work for me.

She’s soooo much more chic with the brunette. And it’s a nice color on her, not too dark like Cameron Diaz’s. She looks absolutely beautiful, she should leave it this way!

Definitely brown. She looks so sophisticated, as a brunette. Being Blonde is so common in Hollywood…

She looks sophisticated as a brunette. She should keep the new look for awhile then go lighter in the spring/summer.
