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?

blonde hair on

I wish I could have Rita Hazan do my hair. Every stylist I’ve ever been to thinks they know everything about hair… when actually they know nothing about hair. They rush into it and get sloppy and if you complain, they get angry. I was tired of my stylist trying to get my hair blonde and she would give me uneven stripes and still have roots on the sides and top. I would have her redo it, and she would get pissed, and I still didnt like it. I colored it brown myself with Natural Instincts, and I like it. I’m trying to grow my hair long, but I needed a trim, so I searched for a hairdresser (in my crappy college town) with lots of experience. I found a stylist who was also the owner of her shop and she claimed she had 15 years experience cutting hair. I wanted it trimmed 1/2″ straight across. I gave her a shot, and it ended up shorter on one side, choppy, and uneven. WHY IS IT SO HARD TO FIND A STYLIST WHO KNOWS HOW TO CUT A STRAIGHT LINE????
I would like to go blonde again someday, but I’m just too afraid of having it messed up again. Unless I could find someone like Rita Hazan, but that would be a miracle. DOES ANYBODY HAVE AS MUCH TROUBLE AS ME? AND WHAT IS A SINGLE PROCESS? (from reading the article)

ok so i dont have anything against jessica, but… i personally think that she got a nose job and a boob job. she was already reahhly pretty. i didnt like her hair in cannes, and it was o.k. when she was brunnette, abut she looks best blonde.

Dani on

Now that you mention it, take a look at that nose! It looks bigger to me…

Marce on

yeah, the color-of-the-hair-fat comment .. hum… totally crazy. Also just curious people, why do some of you refer to her as “Jess”? I mean, are you guys friends or something? … I think Jessica Simpson tries too hard to be a diva. All she needs to do is be herself, leave her hair alone, not overdo the makeup and she’ll do fine.

Slim chic on

What is up with her NOSE!!!!
it stands out more than anything else
Anyway i’m happy that she’s blonde again
