Jenna Dewan-Tatum Goes Blonde

Jenna Dewan-TatumJenna Dewan-Tatum on WhoSay

Miley Cyrus has another doppelgänger! Jenna Dewan-Tatum debuted a freshly dyed, shortly cropped new ‘do on Monday, just one day after Cyrus showed off her blonde pixie. The actress shared a photo of her look on her WhoSay page, writing, “Do blondes really have more fun?? About to find out :)”

However, being blonde wasn’t always so fun — or easy — for Dewan-Tatum; speaking to StyleCaster’s Beauty High (see an image from her shoot, below), the actress admits to a sentimental style mistake.

“I wanted highlights and I have really dark, almost black hair and I Sun-In’d all of my hair and it turned out a really bright orange when I was 17,” she shares. “And then you can’t get rid of it, and you sort of just have to keep dyeing it over and it grows out and it’s this horrible color orange.”

But regardless of hair color, one thing is for sure: the star’s hot husband, Channing Tatum, will still adore her. “He’s the best! He loves me when I wake up in the morning — when I wake up with no makeup on and my hair’s a mess,” she admits. “And if he loves me like that then you can only go up from there. So, I’m a very lucky girl.” Ugh. Yes, you are.

To read more of Dewan-Tatum’s interview — and see more from her photo shoot — head over to Wednesday at 10 a.m.

Please tell me that top picture is a mannequin. That just looks plain scary…

pb on

he’s adorable, she’s adorable, her hair looks adorable!! :)

Katie on

She looks terrible as a blonde. I prefer her as her natural color. I’ve done blonde highlights and it isn’t bad with the highlights but when you do the entire hair blonde.. especially with her brown eyebrows it just doesn’t look good and her skin tone doesn’t make it match well for her..

bree on

She’s so pretty, she looks good either way.

Annabella on

Love the new look, it’s striking!

Kerricatt on

I love her as a blonde, really makes her eyes stand out. LOVE!

Just sayin on

No bueno!

Sunny on

She’s beautiful.

Gabbs on

Really!!? I mean do you see her in any movies? Clearly this is for some attention. She can’t possibly think that this is cute.

Nicki on

Do I recognize her as a blonde? I don’t even recognize her as a brunette!

stefanie on

At least she looks a zillion times better than Miley…

irlyshdnt on


Precious Stone on

Emma Stone is a Precious Stone! A diamond in the dust! She looks good as a BLONDE! Jenna looks good either way. But Chanworth Tatum-Blossom knows….

She’s always be his “Love Princess” of the Kingdom of Chanworth!!!

Penny on

She looks beautiful in both pics!

I see the “mean girls” are out again. Sad.

Jen on

She looks better as a blonde.

kmd0113 on

@Gabbs she has gotten the lead role in season 2 of An American Horror Story.

sunlight on

she looks better with her natural hair color. i’ve done highlights but i never liked any shade of blonde highlights…i’ve always love the dark shades like dark red or dark brown colors because it blends in better with my natural hair color. i would never dye it blond.

Vanessa on

I think she looks great as a blonde! Very trendy.

whatever on

she’s so pretty, she almost looks fake in the bottom pic

Susan on

No. Not all women need to be blond.

Get real on

Everyone calm down!!! It’s a wig for a movie she is currently filming!

Alison on

No, but would I recognize her as a brunette either? Nopes… Just another pretty/generic girl in Hollywood

TexasDey on

She’s very pretty, but blond just isn’t her thing. Not everyone is meant to be a blond.

BBB on

Looks like a great look to try out. The upkeep would be SUPER annoying but if she’s just doing it for a few months just for fun, then enjoy!


Miley take fashion tips over here…!!

Helen on

No this woman is beautiful – insode and out – Milley not so much……..

AimHar77 on

She is a pretty girl & it doesnt look bad, but you always look your best with your natural hair color!! ;-). Change is always good & fun!! Spice it up every now & then! ;-)

Melissa B on

I think she looks better as a blonde.



Summer on

This woman is SO beautiful and can pull off black, brown AND blonde hair! Stunning!

Sidney on

she kind of looks like a russian mail order bride in the first pic. and then she looks like she could be jessica biel’s sister in the second pic.

Paige on

I think she looks really pretty. Wow, what’s with all the haters?

Becki on

She looks beautiful weither she’s blond or brown. I love it.

Kitchy on

I think she looks gorgeous. But she does as a brunette, too. I like the different look, it’s always fun to change things up.

Jessica on

No no no—much better as a brunette

Tammy on

She’s a pretty woman and I think she looks good as a blonde. That bottom picture, however, is one of the most photoshopped pictures I’ve ever seen.

Renee on

She’s Stunning! Gorgeous girl! This look makes her a stand out in a sea of brunette women with overly long hair.

Sandra on

Sorry, but that blonde doesn’t do her any justice. It is not a good look on her at all. It does nothing for her face. Being a brunette suits her to a tee. She looks great as a brunette as it makes her look sultry. Don’t like the cut either. Does nothing for her.

guest on

she looks awesome blonde-gives her a glow and her brows and eyes pop. its a nice soft color! bold black hair makes me look older and washed out. also Jenny mccarthy much better as blonde

roxy63 on

I think she would make a great Ana Steele (50 shades of Grey). She’s beautiful, has an innocent look and can still be sexy. Ryan Gosling as Grey, just saying.

Kate on

Think she is a stunning brunette – blonde not so much wow factor – looks like every other wanna be in Hollywood.

Mr. Fluffy on

Jenna who?

Jill on

The difference between her and Miley? Jenna is actually pretty.

Hannah on

I love her both ways!!!! She said on twitter it was a wig though….I think she is super talented and I’m glad she is starting to get roles she deserves. Can’t wait for American horror story!!


Jenna, what has made you stand out IS your darker hair! This blonde color totally washes you out. You will have time for the lighter colors when you are older. I wish I could’ve enjoyed my dark hair while I was young like you. Now I’m older and have no choice BUT to go lighter. My own dark hair would no longer work on my mature skin. Regardless, you and Channing are the most adorable couple, and I wish you all the Love this World can givve :)

Ginger_Bred on

She’s gorgeous either way. I prefer her natural (she looks more exotic- beautiful skin, raven hair, green eyes). Dying hair blonde is very overdone- but either way, she’s beautiful.

ANNDDDD she’s married to Channing Tatum. I am jealous!
Those two will make insanely adorable babies~ :-)

Aud on


EB on

She was signed recently to play in this season of American Horror story, so for her to change her hair so close to taping, she probably did it for the role. Whatever the reason, it looks cute.

Elizabeth on

She’s a nobody married to a somebody. Without taking her husband’s last name, no one would know who she is.

Angel on

she is still lucky

Dottie C on

I have yet to watch a single interview featuring Channing Tatum where he didn’t refer to Jenna Dewan as “my beautiful wife”. She is the luckiest girl on Earth!

RJR on

Newsflash people… it’s OK to have blonde hair and brown brows. Have you ever seen blonde eyebrows? Not pretty. I don’t know who she is (I know who she’s married to) but she’s gorgeous regardless. Look at that skin. When you have beautiful skin and features, you can get away with ANY hair style.

Roxanne on

She is right about one thing… She is one lucky girl!! It isn’t even legal how gorgeous those babies will be!

red on

I wonder if it is for her role on American Horror Story…she is to play a really sexy role..

Kelsey on

Her Twitter said that this was a wig for a new movie she’s shooting… so she will be back to brunette soon… love her

Shonda on

So pretty:-)
