Minka Kelly Goes Blonde

Minka Kelly BlondeCourtesy Tracey Cunningham

Hollywood’s top hairstylists were busy this weekend: First, one of our favorite blondes went short; then, one of our favorite brunettes went blonde.

A-list colorist and Redken’s “creative consultant for color” Tracey Cunningham posted a picture to her Instagram of client Minka Kelly with the caption “Before and After.”

The Instagram was a split photo of Kelly with her covetable long chestnut locks, next to a shot of Kelly striking a sultry pose in the stylist’s chair at Mèche salon, showing off her brand-new honey-colored hair.

And Kelly seems thrilled with the results, writing on Cunningham’s post, “Thank you for the fun summer goldierocks … I love it!! You’re the best in the bizz!”

What do you think of Kelly’s new hue?

Although I was very jealous when she was dating Jeter, Minka is gorgeous

Angie on

She would be gorgeous with blue hair!

I prefer the brunette, but she looks lovely either way.

KIM on

As long as she stays away from Jeter, she can do whatever she wants with the hair.

Hot!! It’s soft and natural

I like her hair better darker but the girl is so pretty she can pull off anything.

Nadia on

I think she’s gorgeous regardless of hair color, but I think dark looks best on her.

Lisa on

She looks gorgeous with both colors but I think the brunette with highlights suits her better and brings out her natural beauty. She doesn’t need the fake-looking blonde but maybe she just wanted a change for summer. I agree with Stacy – I was jealous of her, too, when she dated Derek Jeter.

blonde makes her look old. Brunette young

ceci on

She looks better with her natural brunette hair color. The blonde looks so fake and dull.

Guest on

I love both hairstyles!

tori on

Minka is stunning as a blonde! WOW!

Netta on

definitely better as a brunette. the blonde looks very fake

guest on

the blonde is awesome gives face a glow, this pic doesnt really show her face so Id like to see another but when my hair is bold and dark I look more washed out

Renaebug on

She is a natural blonde who dyes her hair brunette. Look at pics of her when she was dating Donald Faison (when she was a lot younger). Her hair was blonde back then, and she couldn’t afford the fancy colorists she does now, so you know it was natural. Now she’s going back to her more natural hair color (blonde) for the summer and everyone’s talking about her “natural brunette.” Please. Stop trying to sell this chick as “natural” all the time when she’s anything but.

The blonde is nice for summer, but I do prefer the darker hair. Regardless she is a beauty.

Redhookfox on

Beautiful girl, more so as a natural brunette

D on

Dark haired wonen always try to be blonde but it doesn’t always work. I’m a blonde and tried to go dark once and that didn’t work either. I’m sure within 6 months she’ll be back to her darker hair. But change can be fun, especially with hair.

man Id love to dump a huge load down her throat!!
