Should Britney Spears Stay Platinum Blonde?

Britney Spears would like to remind you that there’s another Queen B in pop music, and she knows how to get people buzzing on social media too. The star’s been strategically leaking behind-the-scenes images from her upcoming Britney Jean special on E!, including a sexy two-piece shot and a personal photo that made us go (record scratch) about her hair.

That’s because in the photo, which shows Spears pensively sitting down to write, her hair looks different than we’ve seen it in a while. Ordinarily she sports a spun-gold hue with dark roots and butterscotch highlights, but in the still from the documentary, her hair is all one color: a light, bright platinum, from roots to topknot.

We don’t know if this was a temporary fix for a photoshoot, a hair phase we somehow missed or just the magic of digital editing, but we love the lighter hue on her. We can’t wait to check out the documentary to find out why she was rocking the new look, but in the meantime, let’s discuss. Should she keep her hair this color, or do you like your Spears style a little more ombré?

Hate it. I like the mixed blonde look with the roots much better. This looks like it was over-bleached.

She needs a more natural style-brown or dirty blonde like her natural color is. Her blonde hair washes her out and ages her tremendously.

I like the platinum hair better. The dark roots and light hair is not a good look for anyone.

I think if Christina Aguilera can do platinum blonde, then Britney for sure can pull it off. Britney in my opinion has the skin tone to have this hair color. Christina always looks orange or overly tan with her hair platinum. Go Britney, love it!

I think she should have it anyway she wants it. I’m pretty sure she doesn’t care what anyone else

I love it, the dark roots age her. . .she should keep it all one tone or get her roots one more often. . .

So tired of celebs being way too blonde; in fact, anyone being way too blonde if it isn’t natural. If you are super blonde by nature, no problem, but over bleached looks horrible. Sorry, but it is just true.

I love it platinum blonde. The lighter the better. She is inspiring me to do the same thing because we have same coloring with skin tone and eyes.

Not a fan. Sometimes too much blonde does age a person looks. Ex. Beyonce looks ten years older. Britney is beautiful and im a huge fan. Try an ombre mix.
