Drew Barrymore Goes Blonde - and Bonds With Emily Blunt

Drew Barrymore must have heard how much we were loving her new, blonder look — because she took the plunge and went platinum.

After gradually transitioning from her dark brunette hue for a few months, the star went to a West Hollywood salon with her pal Emily Blunt (below) for some girl time: Five hours in foils, to be specific, while both lightened up their locks.

And both stars seemed to have a little fun with the paparazzi lurking outside the salon, striking silly poses and getting fits of the giggles — no embarrassment about getting snapped mid-process here at all.

This is the blondest either star has been in quite some time, and we’re loving the lighter hues just in time for summer. We’re almost tempted to book dual salon appointments with our own BFFs for this weekend.

I like Drew better with the darker hue. Her hair now looks very damaged and her coloring is too washed out.

I love Drew Blonde. She was born blonde…

KP on

Love Drew blonde! Reminds me of 90’s Drew :) Emily looks great with any hair colour.

Pam on

I agree Kelly, it does look very damaged, she needs a deep conditioning treatment. That’s exactly why I stopped coloring my hair. I never even knew my natural adult hair color and I love it! Lol!

leigh on

That is far from platinum.

Jessica on

Love her as a blonde, and I agree; she was born a blonde.

gogogirl on

Ok Drew, we get it, your a new mom and its hard getting yourself ready in the morning, but enough with the flannel shirts already!

SoNotHollywood on

That is not even close to platinum, more like honey. People, you have no idea what you are talking about.

Amanda T. on

Emily Blunt is one of the best young actresses working today. Her work in Looper, Devil Wears Prada ( she even stole scenes from the mighty Meryl Streep ) , And The Adjustment Bureau are astonishing. I will watch Blunt in anything.

Caroline on

Drew and her BFF Emily Blunt? I don’t think they even know each other.

kim on

yikes, not a good look for drew. her hair looks fried.

Lisa on

Emily looks like she’s posing for an Olan Mills portrait :)

Sandy Cheeks on

Platnium? Ahahahaha…. not quite. It lookes like a level 8 blonde. Plantinum is anywhere from a level 10-12 blonde. The higher the lighter!!!! Drew definitely has a honey blonde color happening. WHO writes these articles? Seriously!!!!!

BBB on

The both look great with auburn hair. Emily and red undertones go so well, she looked great in the “Devil Wears Prada”.

Anne on

Drew desperately needs a new hair style and conditioning. The color is not platinum but a brassy yellow.

Dusty on

Platinum? Are we referring to their shoes or something, ’cause their hair ain’t anywhere near platinum.

Nancy on

To me, that seems like a harsh process for dark brown hair. Just my opinion.

Shana on

Thats not even close to being platinum…yall need new reporters that know what theyre talking about

Elmo on

I like drew as a blonde and while I’m sure Emilys turned out great the paparazzi should have laid off and let her have some privacy while in the salon!

Lilly on

I’m with you, Kelly. Drew needs some deep conditioning in that hair!

Amy on

Platinum? Platinum must have changed since the last time I saw it.

myladyeve on

Reminds me of her younger years, but she always looks great no matter what color she is!

blair on

Drew looks beautiful either way, but I really think blonde is her color! Just gorgeous!!!

blair on

I thought platinum was a lot lighter! This is more like a honey blonde….

Anna on

How come it takes celebs so long to get their hair done?? It boggles my mind! I’ve been coloring my hair for a long time, and I’ve never had to sit in the chair for 5 hours.

Know-It-All on

@Caroline I don’t know if Emily and Drew are BFFs, but they certainly know each other. Emily’s husband, John, co-starred in a movie with Drew. All of them spent time together while filming in Alaska.

jurby on

love Drew as a blond but with all the coloring she has done i would think her hair is probably fried.

pinkdaisy344 on

Glad the ladies had a fun day out but Drew’s hair looks really fried!

Alissa on

I love Drew blonde. And with the flannel shirt, she looks like the Drew from the 90s right after she got cleaned up but before she cut her hair super short, Poison Ivy era for sure! Can’t wait to see if her little girl will be a mini Drew!

cloudninegirl on

Uh, what’s the big deal?

KayKay on

She always looks rode hard and put up wet!

Oli on

Her hair looks dead

Ambeck22 on

Poison Ivy, anyone?
