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?

what is wrong with her nose? It looks bigger with those sunglasses.. and she looks okay in blonde..much better as BRUNETTE!

I think the blonde is very flattering on her. Brunette shades are so lovely and rich and I personally go back to reds and browns alot, but then when I’m blonde again I wonder why I didn’t just stay blonde in the first place.

In regards to some earlier comments about hair color and the part it plays in how “heavy” you appear… Once, looking back at a picture, I thought I looked “fatter in the face” with darker hair. Then, when comparing the pictures, I realized that I wasn’t insane, my face/weight hadn’t changed, blonde is just more flattering. (Cuts have a lot to do with it too…)

So, I don’t think she looked “fat” as a brunette, the shades she wore looked great, it just wasn’t as flattering as blonde is. Blonde looks better on some people just like brunette looks better on others. Ah, the joys that skin tones bring us! LOL :)

Jessica should stay blonde always! The brunette was growing on me, but I do realize that I love her hair so much more blonde. (PS Stay natural jess. Stop with whatever you’re doing to the lips.)

She looks better as a blonde, but her too small shirt and oversized lips look bad. What has she done to her nose???

Personally Rachel, I agree with Lacy M. Vanessa is way better looking than Jessica! Like way BETTER, like there is noooooo COMP!

Cheryl on

Blonde fits her personality. She needs help in making it look less dyed, dried and fried.

Christen on

I like Jessica as a blonde or a brunette, but I think she looks best blonde. I like her look now.

kuchi on

loves it.. like the color.. she looks great!..

Katerina on

I actually really liked her brunette. This shade of blonde is strange and doesn’t suit her. Her face also looks a little strange…like she got plastic surgery or something.

i think that jussica looks good blond, but i also like her chocolate caramel look she can wear them good both ways. but she should get a major hottie to replace nick. he replaced her with vanessa so she should follow her hot for a sexy guy =]
