Bye-Bye Red -- Kellie Pickler is Back to Blonde!

Looks like Nicole Richie‘s not the only celeb changing her hair color with the cooler weather. After causing a stir when she traded her signature color for auburn at the CMAs, Kellie Pickler lightened up last week –leaving just a touch of strawberry in her newly blonde hair! We loved seeing the singer in a totally different look, but we think that the lighter color suits her bombshell style. Tell us: What do you think about Kellie losing the red and returning to blond?

It was weird seeing her with red hair, but I got used to it. Now I will have to get used to the blonde again! But I think blonde suits her best :)

Pamela on

I like the blonde better, but I like this blonde. The blonde before was so fake and platinum…this is a nice calm colour that looks natural and suits her.

Debra on

Yes! So glad she is back to blonde. It suits her much better.

Lori Moore on

she looks much better as a blond

Amy on

Much better as a blonde!

Bernadette on

I like the blonde much better.

Andrew on

Kellie looks much prettier as a blonde. I hope her friend Katharine McPhee goes back to being a brunette.

Sarafina on

Yes, I think this shade of blonde suits her coloring and eyes better than the platinum shade. I liked her as a redhead too, but I think blonde is better for her. Hope she keeps it this way!


i like it either way i think shes a great singer and great gal her looks are great both ways and i like the strawberry blonde BETTER THAN THE PLATIUM

kim oakes on

I love her being herself as a blonde….don’t change it kelly just be you…..

Beth on

Didn’t like the red at all. Love the blonde!

JR Jake on

If that is what you call blonde, I can dig it. It looks more strawberry than true platinum anyway. The way she sang ‘Santa Baby’ and other songs recently, her hair could have been purple or polka dotted; doesn’t matter. She is a hoot and a great talent to boot. Happy Holidays Kellie.

Leisa on

And THIS is news? yawn.

Brandy on

does anyone really care?

Jaimie on

I think that blonde is DEFINITELY her color…sweet as an angel but when she opens that mouth to TALK, not SING, you’ll get dizzy! HA!

Jack on

I think she should stay blonde. I hate not knowing if the carpet and drapes match

Kathryn Roberts on

She is just cute, but I like her better blonde!

Jennifer on

I think Kelly should KEEP the blonde as it is what America has seen her with since her Idol days, and the red kinda “threw off” her look a little bit. Blonde looks waaaaay better then Auburn!!!!

Kennady on

i luv the strawberry blonde look! its definetely my fav. but it don’t matter wut her hair lokks like cuz i saw her n concert and shes a wonderful performer and singer!!!!!!!

mary kopp on

Please go back to blonde. It matches her spirit and personality.

Jena on

She looks WAY better with blonde! The red color made her look old!

Jan on

I’m glad she is back being a blond I love her she is so cute

Pauline on

It doesn’t matter…she’s beautiful either way.

Noelle on

She could pull anything off.. cute girl for sure and a perfect little body. BUT- she looks a million times better with blonde. Sorry to say. It’s an expensive habit.

Amanda on

Well.. that didn’t last long. Guess Kellie couldn’t stand people not giving her constant attention… pathetic. Another no-talent “celebrity” getting attention for little more than her “looks”, which I personally feel are sub-par anyway.

msslyons on

Like we cared about the color of her hair…

Kristy on

blond is much better on her! even the platinum, whoa, blond is good on her too

cathy on

much better.

Crystal on

Amanda, are you always this rude? If not interested, then don’t comment.

Nikki on

I actually loved the red on her, there are a ton of singers and starlets with blonde hair, but so few with red. I thought it made her stand out, in a good way. Oh well.

Katrina on

MUCH better as a blonde. I did not like the red hair at all.

Liv on

Kellie is a beautiful girlyy!!! I love the blonde!!! :)

Cathy on

I wondered how long it would take her to change back, gave it about 3 weeks. Once blonde…..always blonde!

Dawna on

I like you blonde Kellie, but you are beautiful no matter what…and Amanda why don’t you just keep your trap shut if you are not interested? Some people are just plain RUDE!

Jimmy on

She would be adorable with any color of hair

Audrey on

I did like the red hair on her at all. It didn’t complement her skin tone and looked so very wrong. Glad she has gone back light. I agree that this color is a lot more natural looking and she looks great!

Amanda on

Freedom of speech, ladies… sorry I don’t like your precious Kellie, or her need to be in the spotlight constantly. You should probably go back to her fan site and stalk a little more.

Hateful creeps like Amanda are nothing but jealous losers. We all know that. Ignoring these obnoxious pathetic jerks is probably the best policy.

As for Kellie’s hair, I think she looks far better as a blonde. I actually think it should be a little lighter than it is now, although not platinum.

Megumi on

Du kledde vlideg godt brunt he5r da! Men jeg synes at lysebrunt med mange lyse striper er fint jeg! For da fe5r man en blanding og om man blir lei kan man ge5 over til lyst eller mf8rkt.. Men du har vlideg fin farge ne5
