Katherine Heigl Goes Back to Blonde: Love It or Hate It?

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

Katherine is a very beautiful woman and she looks way better in blonde than with the dark hair.

She’s beautiful no matter what color her hair is, she should do whatever makes her happy!

I think she would be a beautiful red head.

It doesn’t look right. I have always liked her as a blonde better but this particular shade is not flattering. I agree with another poster – it washes her out.

horrible job at dying the eyebrows !

this light haircolor looks very harsh for her fair skin tone. It also just washes her out.

She looks better blonde, but more natural colour would be much softer and more REAL.

I’ve always preferred the blond hair on Kat – it looks more natural on her. I went from natural dark to honey blond for over 20 yrs. Then decided I wanted a change and went for the dark auburn look for fall. Its really hard to get back to the right shade of honey blond. I did it gradually over two or three months so as not to get that too-bleached look. Maybe she didn’t have the time to change it back gradually because it was preferred in her next project. Give the girl a break!!!

Why didn’t her hairdresser use more than one color. Mine uses foils applying 4 different colors. its red tones.

Who really cares..most actors/actresses do this for movie roles…but more importantly they DYE their hair dark for a few months -this is when they get botox, or have surgery done to their face..so that when they go back to blonde or anotehr color…all we see is a change of haircolor …we know something is different and they think we can’t figure it out…hence..Cameron Diaz..nose job..Jennifer Aniston –nose JOBS..perhaps Heigle got her teeth fixed or her double chin or lack of chin fixed? hmmmm
