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

It looks okay. But brunette hair is waaaaay sexier!

I actually think a multitonal brunette looks really great on her. The problem with her last turn as a brunette was that it was just one flat color and her extensions weren’t well done at all. She tends to keep her hair and extensions better maintained when she’s blonde.

SHe’s so adorable and just lovable any way, but I prefer her dark hair. She looks more natural and not like every other starlet in Hollywood. Anyway, she’s FUN!

Sooo Rich on

I usually prefer brown – the natural hair colour – but I think she looks much better as a blonde.

I’ve always thought she looked better with blonde hair. The color and the cut are wonderful on her. I love it!
