Hilary Duff Darkens Up Her Hair: Love It or Hate It?

09/30/2010 at 03:00 PM ET


Just six weeks ago, when she tied the knot with Mike Comrie, Hilary Duff was still a dyed-and-true blonde; but the actress was all smiles yesterday in L.A. as she staked her claim as Hollywood’s newest brunette bombshell. Over the past few weeks we’ve watched the newlywed gradually go darker, even trying an ombré look that rivaled that of Hollywood trend-setters like Drew Barrymore and Lauren Conrad–but we weren’t sure if she’d go all the way with the darker look. And while stars like Katherine Heigl have taken the change of the seasons as a chance to lighten up, Hilary has committed to cozying down for fall by shedding her extra sunny look. Do you think Hilary should keep the brunette hair, or do you prefer her as a blonde?

I’m not a big fan of “ombre locks”. I think Hilary looks best as a blonde. Maybe just lighten it a little to a nice honey-wheat shade.

Looks nearly natural :)

I like it. The lighter hair washed her out.

Mrs JP on

Love it!

Good for her and why not change hair color, sometimes change is good. She can pull any color off.

Way to go :-) !!!

Jae on

Looks dull. She looks so much better with dark burnette hair.

I don’t know if I’d call that brunette; it looks more like a dark caramel blonde to me. The shade suits her, but then so does the lighter blonde. Looks great either way!

Ever since “Lizzie McGuire”, I’ve liked her as a blonde.

'k on

She’s a pretty girl. She looks fine either way.

I think a darker brunette or a lighter blonde shade would suit her – this inbetween colour is a little drab.

I like Hilary either ways, she should just do what makes her happy!

Blonde, blonde, blonde!

She is not one of those people that can pull off any hair color she likes.

Much like Katherine Heigl, she looks great as a blonde, but darker shades not only don’t work, but look really bad on her.

Presumably she likes it, and hopefully her husband does too, but she’s got to know that she’s really only beautiful as a blonde.

That’s not brunette, that’s dark blonde. It’s so much more natural on her : )

Cricket on

Maybe she is getting ready to have a baby and her natural color is darker.

Lisa on

I think it looks great!

Yikes, she should have went darker, or stayed lighter. This color is awlful!! Stars can try to start a FAD, but they suck at it.

Thomas on

she looks very beautiful, but I prefer her as a blond cause it’s her natural color !

Sam on

I like it, she looks good.

Kathy on

I think she looks better as a blond but I can’t help think that this natural look is a good way to hide any possible pregnancy. After all, to dye your hair while with babe isn’t good, this way no one will know …

Lisa on

100 percent better!!! Nice contrast,I can see her features better.

Raquel on

It looks cheap like u didnt have enough dye. Its either go one way or the other.

Vanessa on

she needs to tan. she looks like ghost!

I think Hilary is a beautiful girl who could do anything with her hair and would still look good! It’s great that she likes to mix it up and try new colors occasionally.

isabella on

she looks cute either way

Melissa on

I grew up at the beach and my hair was and still is naturally like this it’s funny that people pay money to have their hair dyed this way instead of just going outside.

Doba on

Why can’t women in Hollywood just have a normal face without lip-injections and botox? I mean, she’s in her late teens / early twenties, if you can’t be natural then, when can you? I miss normal looking women.

arbresha on

she look grat with blond ore with dark hair

arbresha on

she look great with blond ore with dark hair

arbresha on

she look great with blond ore with dark hair it is beter with a blond but anyway it looks cool

Foufa on

I really like her this way, her hair looks very natural, but I am surprised people magazine calls her a brunette, that’s just a darker shade of blond.

Natasha on

I think Hilary looks great in any hair color, because she has a gorgeous face, but I think this hair color looks like a light auburn red to me, with some blonde at the bottom.

Natasha on

Hilary looks great with her hair like this. It looks like it’s light auburn in the roots, and fades to strawberry-blonde on the ends. She looks beautiful with that shade. It would be interesting if she goes full-on redhead.

Duffan on

I think she looks fabulous in every way, she’s beautiful, Love U Hil… Kisses to all the fans

Haylie on

i love my sisters hair. whatever she likes is ok with me….. just not neon! :) love you sis :)
