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?

Jess seems like she does not know who she is. She seems to wear styles only because they are trendy or wear her hair a certain way for a guy. She needs to be herself! I could be completley wrong about her lack of individuality but this is how she is portrayed in the media….

Jessica is looking a lot better! Her hair looks pretty good, except for the extensions. Hopefully she’ll leave it alone for a while now. Although the lips are looking pretty ridiculous, but her figure looks fabulous, she’s not hanging out everywhere, and she looks so happy.

I don’t even know why this girl is famous…what has she done lately?? Further more, what GOOD songs has she made latley, or films?

I think she is ugly…and I’m not saying this cause I’m jealous, I’m saying it cause I’m seriously telling the truth.

If Jessica was smart she would have stayed with Nick instead of getting with some oily haired weirdo.

I agree…that’s why i said ‘maybe she’s expressing herself that way’! Because i think ‘yes’ that IS probably why she changed her hair color.

She is beautiful! I love the fact that she is going back to blonde. Nothing wrong with the brunette hair, everyone needs to experiment.

I think Jessica is beautiful, but personally I really thought she looked best as a brunette. Too many blondes out there and she just looked so natural as a brunette. Her natural beauty just shined through. Blonde is too “typical” for celebrities, that’s all you see in the magazines. Jessica being a brunette was a nice change.

Jessica looks great! I like her hair better blonde but she looked good as a brunette too. It was just startling the first time I saw it.
