Katherine Heigl isn’t exactly immune to stirring up controversy, but on-set tussles aside, if there’s one thing that really gets her fans talking, it’s her drama-queen-worthy hair changes–and after months as a brunette, the actress is back to blonde. In the past, honey-colored hair has been her standard blonde staple, but this time around it looks like Heigl hit the bottle a little bit harder, bleaching it out to soft platinum. And while most stars tend to stick to one side of the hair color spectrum, Katherine seems to be one of the few A-listers who can gracefully shift between extremes. But we want to know your take on the change. Should Heigl stick with the lighter color, or defect back to the dark side? –Katherine Kluznik Rentmeester

She is always beautiful

Fugs. Dark works for her best. Pretty sure she’s a natural brunette too. Sad.

Ms Heigl should’ve stayed blonde in the first place she looked like an idiot with dark hair most natural blondes do other than a few. for example Melissa Newman looks good as a brunette but she dyes her hair brown to cover gray granted she’s also nearly 2 decades older than Ms Heigl and from hollywood royalty. her parents being Paul Newman & Joanne Woodward who were one of very few film industry couples to stay married more than 50 years something Katherine & hubby Josh Kelley will never do.

Katherine is so beautiful; to me it does not matter what her hair color is; she could even be bald; SHE IS BEAUTIFUL…INSIDE AND OUT!!!!

She looks better brunette. She looks too washed out with this much blonde.

I love Katherine but this color does not look good. I agree w/ Rachel….she needs a dishwater blonde or the blonde that she started out with on Grey’s Anatomy. She looks good more natural than extreme.

Me on

Considering she went brunette for a (very badly cast) role as Stephanie Plum in One for the Money, why would she stay brunette?

I love it from a guys point of view! She pulls it off just fine. Beautiful as ever!

She looks great as a brunette, but the platinum makes her look washed out.

I am a fan of hers and I think she is gorgeous. HOWEVER, this makes her look pale and washed out. Her hair looks better in lighter shades, but not like this. Still love her though.
