Change can be fun. It can also be liberating. One of the most dramatic ways to change your look is to change your hair color. Get inspired to make the hair color plunge with these dramatic transformations from your favorite celebrities.
Alesha Dixon completely changed her look by cutting off all of her length and dying her hair blonde.
Toni Collette traded in her blonde locks for a much deeper color.
Bella Heathcote traded in her long reddish hair for a medium length blonde look.
When you picture the star of the original 90210 series, you picture a hot blonde bombshell. This wasn’t always the case. As pictured on the left, Jennie Garth appeared at the Opening Of Burberry To Benefit Shakespeare Festival in 2001 with chestnut brown hair. Maybe it’s because we’re used to seeing the actress as a blonde, but we think that the darker color washes her out.
Emma Stone is considered one of Hollywood’s young, talented redheads, but it might surprise you to know that her natural color is blonde. We thought she was permanently going back to her roots after she dyed it back to blonde for her role in The Amazing Spider Man and kept the color through 2013 (pictured left in January of 2013), but recent PR appearances (including the photo on the right from the 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards) have photographed her as a redhead again.
January Jones, best known for her role on the AMC television series Mad Men, is no stranger to hair color. On the show and in her personal life, you will most often see her as a blonde but the young actress has tried a variety of colors including red and an interesting shade of pink which she debuted on Instagram.
If asked “what color is Cameron Diaz’s hair”, the majority of her fans would proclaim that it’s blonde without question . . .which is the correct answer if you omit her brunette years in 2006-2007 (such as the hairstyle pictured on the right at the 2007 Vanity Fair Oscar Party). Making the color choice must be a hard call for her because she looks phenomenal in both!
It’s hard to keep track of Ashlee Simpson’s hair color. She has rocked blonde, brunette, red, and jet black. According to US Weekly, Ashlee is a natural blonde (obviously not the salon enhanced platinum blonde pictured above), but we’re not so sure. Many of her blonde PR photos reveal very dark roots (like that pictured above)
Jessica Alba started her career at age 13 starring in The Secret World of Alex Mack as a brunette. Over the course of her career, she has lightened her hair several times. Though we’re certain that Jessica would look smoking hot with any hair color she chooses, we’re glad that she has returned to her original brunette hair color, which complements her skin tone beautifully.

When a young thirteen-year-old Christina Aguilera hit the Hollywood scene on The All New Mickey Mouse Club (1993-1995) her hair color was honey blonde. She has primarily remained a blonde (though much lighter) throughout the years, but has had several stints with black and brunette hair colors, like the color pictured left in 2003. She is going brunette again for her ABC’s Nashville guest role. We can’t decide which color we like better on the megastar. She looks great in both!
We are accustomed to seeing our favorite Desperate Housewife Felicity Huffman with some shade of blonde (like the color pictured on the left from 2008). She recently arrived at the 2015 Variety and Women In Film Pre-Emmy Celebration as a dark brunette.
Julianne Hough was a natural blonde before beginning to color her hair at age seventeen. The Dancing with the Stars judge has tried several different colors (including brunette as pictured in 2008) but has returned to her roots (with a little help from her colorist).
Is she a blonde or a brunette? It’s hard to tell with actress Emma Roberts, daughter of Eric Roberts and niece to Julia Roberts, because she changes it as often as others change their clothes.
Though we generally see actress Ali Larter with blonde locks, she is not afraid to try out new colors especially for roles. There is no denying that Ali is a beauty as a blonde, but the deep chestnut she appeared in at Disney’s “Cinderella” World Premiere in 2015 is striking!
Actress Elsa Pataky who appeared in several of the Fast and Furious films generally chooses a blonde hair color but we LOVE her as a brunette! She looks completely different as a brunette.
In her early teens, Renee Olstead appeared as a natural redhead in the television series Still Standing (2002-2006). Since 2012 she has opted to go blonde. Though we love her natural hair color, there’s no denying she looks great as a blonde as well.
It is a rare sighting to see naturally dark blonde Reese Witherspoon as a brunette, which she has changed for several roles. It’s shocking how good she looks!
Kim Kardashian has had many hair colors. We think that her natural color suits her the best!
Karreuche Tran looks completely different with blonde hair but she can pull off either color easily.
