Drew Barrymore Lightens Her Locks: Which Color Do You Like Best?

We’ve been so busy admiring Drew Barrymore‘s lipstick choices lately that we almost completely missed the fact that she’s been slowly lightening her hair for months.

From the deep chocolate hue she was wearing in December, the actress has seemed to go lighter almost from the tips up, getting progressively more ombré before landing on auburn.

Then at Saturday’s GLAAD Awards, she debuted an even blonder style, going for an allover honey color with hints of strawberry that looks amazing with her fair skin.

She’s not the only star who’s been lightening up for spring (see: Sofia, Minka, Julianne and Jennifer), and we are loving this new, blonder crew.

(PS: Still dying to know which lipstick color she wore to GLAAD? We were too, so we found out: It’s her own FLOWER Kiss Stick Velvet lip color in Dahlia Dahling and Line & Shine lip liner in Red.)

Tell us: Which color do you like best on Drew?

She looks great with the blonde / lighter color.
It looks so natural on her.
Isn’t she a natural blonde?
When she was a little girl “ET” she was blonde and all the photos of her as a young girl she was blonde.
I really do like it very much on her, she could even go lighter.
Go Drew!!!

I prefer the middle picture with the reddish hair. Also, the more natural lipstick looks better than the dark reds. Either way, she is a very pretty woman.

I think the hair color in the middle photo looks great on her :)

I LOVE the most recent, blonder color. Especially that particular shade! I think it looks great with her skin tone. The darker hues in the first 2 photos almost seem to weigh her down & age her. She looks like the weight has been lifted in the 3rd photo, and… she looks YOUNGER!! GREAT CHOICE!!

The middle picture of her is just gorgeous.


oh, and I like the lightest color best :)

@Carolyn she had blond hair as a little girl but I think now it’s naturally very dark(the picture on the left). It seemed like she stopped coloring it when she was pregnant and it grew out very dark. I like the red hair in the middle the best.

She is beautiful no matter what, but I prefer the blonde on her.

Her hair always looks dirty to me, so it doesn’t matter what color is best. I know people like her funky bohemian vibe, but I am not one of them.

She would look great in virtually any hair color. She has calm, yet laughing eyes that exude happiness- which always makes someone beautiful.
