Get the Scoop on Britney Spears's New Baby-Blonde Locks

Britney Spears is gearing up for a come-back appearance in a video segment that will be played during Madonna’s upcoming tour. Looking better than ever, Brit lightens her locks and lets down her hair — and her hair stylist, Kim Vo, gives PEOPLE the scoop on the new look. “I took her into the baby-blonde spectrum, like a child who’s been at the beach,” Vo says of softening the star’s darker blonde color. “She now has a lot of streaks — including some dark in the back — but the effect is baby-blonde. She is blonder than she’s been, which she loves.” But why suddenly so light? Vo had to take into account Madonna’s golden hair and give Britney something that would contrast and complement the Material Girl’s look. The straight style, however, was Britney’s call. And Vo kept fly-aways at bay with one of the star’s favorite products. “Britney loves the Perfect Polish Dry Serum. It’s a product that keeps her hair polished and frizz free. When we’re doing a straight hair style this is a must.” We think Brit’s straight blonde style is the perfect summer look for her. Tell us: What do you think of her new hair? Would you go that blonde?

You can see how long her real hair is in this picture too! I wonder what it would look like without the extensions…. looking good though!

I think her hair looks great and so does she!! I can’t wait for her comeback, then all the Jessica Simpsons in the world will see why she is the ONLY POP PRINCESS!!! Good luck Brit, all of us in the MIA can’t wait until you have a new cd!! We wish you only the best and hope you have a speedy recovery!

I wish she would just wear her natural hair down, I mean its been how long since she shaved her head, I think its time to get rid of the extension.

Honestly, I think it’s boring and unflattering. The color is OK but she still doesn’t look pretty. I guess as long as she’s not driving around acting crazy, I don’t have a problem with how she wants to wear her hair.

Britney looks beautiful! I love her hair color and long legnth. She’s a young gal and should have fun with her hair. I think she’s never looked better!

I’m a very recent fan of Britney, due to her CD BLACKOUT – its very cool. It won NRJ awards in France as Best International Album. Can wait for the new one! There’s no other Princess of Pop, she has an unique voice, and people should stop dishing on her for the wrong reasons. There’s plenty of (des)information out ther don’t believe in everything!
Love her hair, its nice.
Request for a New Tour – and Portugal in the list!

there’s never going to be a “comeback”–this girl is gone. She looks pregnant 24/7 to top it off.

I think she needs a little more work. But she does look better than she did even 9 months ago. Keep it up and it will all come back. I am not a fan of her music, but I have been following her story life, and she has gotten better about everything.

I don’t like it her hair looks fake.She should give up hair extensions and go back to her natural hair color.
She looks older with blonde hair.
And her skin is red it looks burned.This girl is overrated she was never gorgeous anyway.
