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

Dark hair looks better on her, it goes with her skin tone. I’d like to see Gwen Stefani with her natural dark hair–she would be stunning. Too many blondes that shouldn’t be blond.

Love it…… I prefer blonde hair on her….

Always has to be someone negative huh Diana? I’m sure you are just gorgeous right? What a miserable life people like you must have, always cutting everyone else down….She looks gorgeous!

I love it! Nicole is awesome, and one of the few “starlets” in Hollywood to make a complete 180. She looks great with either hair color!

I have always loved her as a blonde better than any other hair color. She’s beautiful as a blonde!

She can rock blonde or brunette but her eyes really pop when her hair is dark. I love her – she was hilarious on the show with Paris way back when. She should have her own reality show with her hubby and kids…hint hint.

She looks exactly the same! I don’t notice the change. She is beautiful either way!

I think I prefer the darker hair, but she looks cute either way. :)

I think she is most gorgeous in honey blonde locks. It just really does something for skintone. She looks gorgeous!

Either way she is soooo pretty, cute adorable… Cutest figure, face hair, attitude. I like the way she matured when she became a mamma :)
