Nicole Richie Swaps Brunette for Blonde: Love It or Hate It?

08/27/2010 at 11:00 AM ET

Bye-bye brunette! After eight months of rocking raven locks, Nicole Richie took to Twitter yesterday to share a totally new look. Tweeting, “Let’s Do A Makeover!”, the star shared this self-portrait twitpic of her new honey blonde, tousled bob. Never one to shy from changing up her style, Nicole regularly shifts from red carpet elegance to boho cool. And when it comes to trying out new hair colors, she’s always taken a laid-back approach, joking in December, “I feel smarter already,” when she traded blonde for brunette. Tell us: Did Nicole make a smart choice in going back to blonde or is she better as a brunette? –Katherine Kluznik Rentmeester

Gives her a much softer look. Keep the blond.

she looks great in both

I like The PHOTO of her, and yes, Nicole Richie did make a smart choice going back to blonde, but she’d be great as a brunette as well!

Nicole definately looks better in darker hair! It makes her look to fake and unnatural in lighter hair. Darker hair goes with her complexion and eyes much better!

ruby on

love it

Hugo on

medium brown with honey colored highlights would have looked better!

S on

Blonde is better! The brunette on her was too dark and overwhelmed her petiteness. :)

Tiff on

I like the darker hair better.

I think she looks fine either way. Happy for her that she seems to have turned her life around. Her kids are adorable!

Either way it looks bad. I don’t think she is all that attractive.
