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

I think she looks a lot more natural as a blonde!!! I think she look 100% better!!!

wasn’t she blonde for a little bit before? The last time that I saw her was when she had her first kid and she was blonde then.

She looked fabulous as a brunette – better for her skin tone.

Nicole always looks great, but with the blond hair she is absolutely stunning. Blond definitely suits her better.

Nicole looked glamourous but still naturally pretty with darker hair. She does not have a unique look any more with the blond hair. The darker hair look was romantically soft and it enhanced her eyes. The blond look is too cliche. I hope that she focuses on her family and her charities and stays away from idiots and drugs.

I’ve always preferred her as a blonde…it really brings out her eyes…she has beautiful eyes…

Love the cut & style but I think she looks better with darker hair.

I love her but her hair looks so over processed

Proud of her! She has grown into a woman to be admired.
