Jessica Simpson's Even Blonder! Love It or Hate It?

Splash News online

We guessed that Jessica Simpson‘s dark caramel color in Cannes would just be a step in the re-blonding process, and we were right! (And who doesn’t love to be right?) Last Friday, BFF Ken Paves lightened Jessica’s color “on a whim” just before her event in Cannes. “We were inspired by her new movie, Major Movie Star, which she is about to start filming!” he told PEOPLE. But on Monday night, Jessica turned to her long-time colorist Rita Hazan to add back in her signature bright blond highlights. Rita tells PEOPLE, “I highlighted Jessica’s hair by putting in highlights which were not too fine — to give it an illusion of being a lot lighter than it really is.” This isn’t the end of the process, either: Jessica’s hair will keep getting blonder — just not overnight. “It’s better to start slowly [so you don’t] damage the hair. In a few weeks, I would most likely do a single process, followed by highlights using a pale, baby blonde shade.” So, we can look forward to Jessica getting back to her old platinum ways!
Tell us: What do you think is Jessica’s best look? Should she keep going blonder or do you miss the dark hair?

cute top. and she does look best blond, but is there something different about her lips? maybe it’s just the gloss.

I don’t know, she just looks weird to me…Even her hair has two tones and then those lips…. who knows…

I personally think Jess is looking better than ever these days. I do agree that she goes overboard with the cleavage displays. But I love that she has her shapely figure back. The little extra weight makes her face fuller and I think that looks beautiful on her. People argue about what is too thin on celebrities, and I think her size right now is the perfect amount of thin. And I wasn’t crazy about her going brunette, but I have grown to love it. It made her skin tone look warm. But hey, its getting summertime, most people like going blond for this time. I think it looks great.

I think that anyone that comments negatively about Jessica Simpson is jeleous. If we want to be critical, then I would say her hair color needs rework ;)

Love the top! I know she is going blond for her movie role, which starts filming in June. I would like to see her go back to a brunette when she is done filming.

Who cares about her highlights?!? What’s up with her wearing glasses that make her nose look HUGE?? Has she had work done??

wow, she doesn’t look anything like the way she does normally. her smile looks tight and forced…i feel like she has had some work done to her lips. i guess the cosmetic surgery craze runs in her family with ashlee’s nose job…

I think she looks way better with blonde hair! Brunette is okay on her, but it made her (fake?) tan look orangey. She looks beautiful!

By the way, I love her hair! Great color on her! :)
