Cameron Diaz is Back to Blonde! What Do You Think?

05/07/2007 at 12:00 PM ET

Even though Cameron Diaz dyed her hair dark months ago, we never stopped thinking of her as a blonde — and now she’s back to her sunny self! She’s been inching towards a ligher color for months, from her raven color at the Golden Globes to a chestnut brown at the Oscars to her recent ligher highlights. But as of last Thursday, she’s full-on pale blonde again, and we’re loving it! Though, as Cameron told PEOPLE at a recent Shrek 3 junket, the color is not something she planned. “It’s chemistry, baby,” she says of her new shade. “Have you ever gone in and tried to mix 20 volume bleach? Got to be careful with that. As women know. It just happened.” Tell us what you think: Do you like Cameron better as a brunette or are you glad she’s back to blonde?

It’s about time!

I think I liked her chestnut best, but this new shade is really intriguing. At least in this picture here, it doesn’t look like a full-on dye job. The intentional chestnut “roots” really give it a unique dimension. I like it a lot! Whether it was an accident or no, I hope that she keeps this look for a while. I may need more photos to show my colorist!

Amy B on

I love it!! It’s not Platinum this time. It has darker redish tones. I love it. It doesn’t wash her out. She’s fab!

jacqi on

Elda on

AM on

Love her. She always looks amazing…but more amazing with lighter hair. She’s beautiful & has great style. LOVE HER!!!

katy on

i think it looks great! i was never a fan of her really dark hair.

Corey on

She is beautiful any way her hair is. She is someone to look up to in fashion and in life the only mistake I have ever seen is not being with Justin Timberlake

*Wild Jenn* on

she looks great as a blond but to me it looks to childish and girly. a little to school girl for me….and not the good kind ….if you kno wwhat i mean…. with the dark hair her eyes popped and it was a very sexy classy look that was stunning. I think that as much as she likes the blond she should make a bold choice and stay dark.

Brittany on

Love her hair! Love her dress! Love her! She’s so beautiful but the blond really suits her cali girl laid back style much better. Where can I get great summer dress like Cam is wearing?

h on

Cameron is beautiful no matter what her hair color is. But I really think she is stunning as a brunette. I guess the blonde is fitting for summertime though.

Alli on

Love the hair and the dress! Too cute!

stephanie on

I THINK THE WAS HER HAIR IS NOW SHE IS AT HER BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Babybear on

What are you trying to say STEPHANIE!.
She looks ok.

alia on

Yeah…I loved her as a brunette, but I love her even more as a blonde. It just fits her and her personality:)

Lauren on

I think she looks much better as a Blond. She way preetier as a blond then when she is a burntte.

k on

I LOVE HER AS A BLONDE!!!!!!!!!…ugghh the brown was soo boring, old, and drab!

enigma on

Hey Kendra, I don’t she’s slouching, I just think Cameron is hunching her shoulders up a bit from laughing and smiling…anyway that’s the way I see it, no offense please….

Cameron is blonde by nature so, it suits her best!!


Maurine on

She looks great. She looks much better as a blonde and looks fabulous here.

Misty on

Love it! I think she looks fabulous!

glad on

i like her both ways but i think that for the summer blond looks better on her..she is soo pretty !
and her blue eyes stand out either way

Candi on

Love her hair this way. It is so cute and much better than the dark look she was going for. Although, I did read somewhere that she liked the dark better. Oh, does she EVER wear her hair down. It seems like she ALWAYS has it back in a ponytail. LOVE LOVE LOVE the dress…

AnnieM on

She looks fabulous!

Rebecca on

I wouldn’t call it “pale blonde”, but I do love the color! It’s a nice in-between from her old light blonde color and her more recent dark color. This looks the most natural on Cameron.

nick on

she was better when she was brown

Sophia on

I think she blends in with the crowd as a blonde. She’s much more distinctive as a brunette, and her beautiful blue eyes pop with that chesnut color.
That being said, a beautiful woman like Cameron can pull off just about anything!

Shangella on

Actually I prefer her with dark hair. I thought it made her eyes pop out and it really went well with her complexion. Either way, she is beautifull.

Sue on

Cameron could have purple hair with orange highlights and she would still look BEAUTIFUL, she always looks GORGEOUS.

sue on

The dress is Chanel. She’s so pretty.

Carrie on

She was barely cute with brown hair. She looks much better with blond hair, just look at the more recent movies she’s made, they ALWAYS make her go back to blond. She is a blond bombshell, not a good brunette.

alice on

Both hair colors work for her and give her a completely different look. And her legs look amazing in that dress.

kel on

she looks more like a star with blonde hair!…its fab…brown is too plain and boring!…i think the brown was just a break up thing!

Jesshiee on

I think she looks better as blonde. Not that it was bad before on her either but either way she looks good.

night on

Great hair, but more importantly, she looks happy ALL the time…blond or brunette. She’s a pretty woman.

Kendra on

enigma when I look at it your way I see that your right.. so sorry!!!

Lauren on

i like her new (again) look. it is cameron diaz. she looks like a natral blonde. the color defiently suits her crazy outgoing personality.

lauren on

YES!! i love it. She looks good either way. I actually died my hair the same color of brown that she had for the winter, and i’ve already added a few blonde highlights in the front, but i need more for the summer!

Ali on

Wow, I didn’t even notice.

Cass on

I love this – I think she looks so much better blonde. And she’s looked much happier recently then she has in a while. Good for you Cam!

alina on

Ok. I would just like to remember you all that, besides the really fabulous body, especially the legs, Cameron is rather ugly. Without makeup she is hideous. Maybe Justin saw it in the end. Not that I love Justin…anyway, that’s my opinion.

Michelle on

Cameron is a gorgeous woman no matter what color she wears
She is a woman of substance and depht.

heather on

She can shave her head and still be fantastic !! She has a beautiful soul.

enigma on

Hey Kendra, sure no problem and no need to be sorry, ok!!

Cheers and Enjoy!

Lourdes on

To me she looks even more beautiful in blond. She is sweet and classy, blond is for her.

Autumn on

Personally I like her with dark hair. It made her eyes completely shine. Plus it made her stand out from all of the other blonde hollywood clones.

rere on

I am so glad she went back to blonde! That depressing to dark black hair was getting so old.

rere on

the dark hair was depressing and too dark. I love the blonde.

Lauren on

Its about damn time. She looks better as a blond, always have always will. The darker just didn’t look right on her. She doesn’t have the complexion to pull it off.

Melissa on

I love her dress! Can someone tell me about the dress? Her hair looks great, her natural blond gives her a more youthful glow. The brown hair color made her look way older than her youthful self is!

margaret on

her hair looks really pretty

Sylvia on

Cheers for blonde!

Ashley on

I think she looks much better as a blonde. The brunette color she had before made her look cold.

Maryse on

Yay Cam! I’m so glad she’s gone back to the blonde. I love the pale blonde with highlight/tones at the roots. I liked her with dark hair also, it brought out her stunning blue eyes, but I like her more this way. The dark hair made her more older, which she looked beautiful regardless, and as I said, it brought out her eye color. With her blonde hair back, it fits more with her personality. She’s a sun bunny or a beach babe and she’s got such a bubbly personality, the color also brings more youth to her. I just like her with blonde, it just suits her. I love Cameron either way, she’s amazingly beautiful.

Diana on

Dream girls. The dress is Chanel!

Mothergoose on

FINALLY!!! we have been waiting for this Cameron!!!!!!!!!!!! much better blonde!

Jen on

So glad to see she’s a blonde again! SOOOO much better!

happy on

She looks so fab! I hated the black and the dark brown but this is more her.

Susana on

In the article 20 volume perioxide is mentioned..which would probably give the color she has..but 40 volume is more for the really blonde..Now THAT you have to be careful with!

Amy on

Cameron needs to stay blonde…She just doesn’t look right any other way.

Crystal Beach girl on

About flipping time!! lol! She looked evil with her hair so dark.

valentino on

Annie on

Does anyone know where to get a cut shift dress like Cameron’s. I love the color and the shape.

Aliya Maulesh on

She lookes fantastic!

DARK HAIR makes her look older!

Apple on

She looks fantastic! Blond is her colour!
DARK HAIR makes her look older!

Angie on

Well, this took long enough. She looks way better in blonde, and I would like it even better if she had left out the red. But, it is a step up from the dark brown.

Emilie on

I definately liked her better brunette… it brought out her eyes more…why does everyone have to be blonde!

kari on

i like MUCH more the chesnut hair but anyway she’s beautiful! and love the dress too

elle on

No! I loved her brown hair!

Karen on
