Rachel McAdams Dyes Her Hair Red

Rachel McAdams Red HairSplash News Online(2)

There’s officially something in the Hollywood water.

Rachel McAdams is the latest star (after Dianna Agron and Ariel Winter) to be spotted with an electric shade of red hair.

PHOTOS: Vote on more star hair color changes and cuts here!

McAdams has actually had the hue since shortly after parting ways with love Michael Sheen in February. So while the other two were just feeling experimental, McAdams may be sporting one of the key signs of a breakover: a bold new look.

Then again, McAdams is no stranger to hair color shakeups: she’s been platinum blonde, chocolate brown and everything in between (even pink!) throughout her career. One thing’s for sure, regardless of the reason: The star seems to be having a lot of fun as a redhead, so we don’t imagine she’ll go back to blonde anytime soon.

Tell us: What do you think of McAdams’s new hue?

I like her with blonde hair. But she is very pretty with red hair as well.

Amy on

I think it looks good on her :-)

Skiwoman60 on

Looks fantastic!!!

KB on

While it’s better than blonde on her, I have always preferred her as a brunette.

Carrie M on

Rachel looks best as a brunette.

Lisa on

When you said bright red hair I imagined the worst. She looks good. :)

alexa on

She can pull off any color. I absolutely adore her!

georgesmithson on

She is gorgeous as a blonde or a brunette… a rare feat in and of itself… but not so much as a redhead.

Mindy on

Rachel’s red hair reminds me of her red hair during “The Notebook” movie. It suits her coloring, and is very flattering.

jsd85 on

Rachel McAdams reminds me of the Notebook. And I love the Notebook. Ahhh….. She looks beautiful no matter what.

Dana on

She looks SO much better as a blonde

William on

In my opinion, Rachel looks best as a brunette. I also like her look with red hair. I am very rarely attracted to blondes and, for as much as I adore her, I like her look least with blonde hair.

Greg on

She always looked better as a redhead or brunette

PM on

She’s so cute with any color hair!

Jam on

Pretty girl, I always loved her acting, especially with Ryan Gosling…..jealous! LOL

Lilla on

Hope it’s for a movie??? Much better blonde

Snow on

Hey, isn’t that Eva Menendez’ hair color?

Linda on

Rachel looks great as a redhead! It does bring back her look in The Notebook, my all-time favorite movie. She’s a beautiful blonde too. I don’t think any color hair would look bad on her!

kjc on

I didn’t know she was single again. So now if Ryan Gosling and her would hurry up and get back together already I think there’d be a lot of happy people. Sorry to Eva, but this couple is destined to be together… It’s in the movie after all.

cynlee on

Rachel McAdams could dye her hair any color and still look gorgeous!

jcsfny on

Looks like she just walked out of a potato field.

holly on

They could have used a better photo (where her hair isn’t being wind blown), regardless, she looks good with any hair color.

Gloria on

I think she is beautiful no matter what hair color she has. She looks great.

jim on

possibly the only woman i have ever seen that looks incredible no matter what color her hair is.

Dee on

i think i like her best as a brunette, like she was in sherlock holmes…but there’s nothing wrong with playing with your hair color!!!!

Roman on

I preferred her blonde hair. That being said, I still want to jump her bones.

Emily on

No matter what color of hair she still be gorgeous those dimples are the cutest.

La-La on


akri on

suits her

Potter on

This girl is gorgeous no matter what she does. And she’s super lovely in person :)

Mary on

The red hair suits her

kelleym64 on

I think she looks great as a redhead. With those dimples, she could be Jennifer Garner’s younger sister.

guest on

as a redhead, she and Jennifer Garner could pass as sisters

guest on

w/the darker hair, she and Jennifer Garner could pass as sisters

John F. C. Taylor on

From that before pic, it is obvious that she isn’t a real blond.

Erin on

Better blonde

Jumpinjohn on

Kinda Jennifer Garner lookin!

Jeanie on

the red hair goes nicely with her coloring and that blond that she wears with the dark roots just looks shabby .. considering most brunettes are dying their hair blonde, get real, you aren’t fooling anyone that has two brain cells

Amy on

She is a doll. I would love to look as great as she does in every color she trys. This girl has no worries. She could wear a potato sack with green hair and she would still look fantastic.
