Celebrity Hair Trend: Going Light

Lately, we have been seeing quite a few dark-haired Hollywood bombshells with lighter locks. Are you guys liking the look? Share your thoughts!

The super gorgeous Megan Fox with lighter hair. I’m not a fan of the lighter ends with the darker roots though.

  1. I liked those two stars when they had their normal dark hair (: Megan Fox is gorgeous, but i don’t like her lightened ends ..

  2. Since Megan’s still looks like her normal color it doesn’t bother me however her natural rich dark brown is just so much better. It seems almost less shiny this way. I DO NOT like Kim’s hair this color at all. Seems to age her. =P

  3. Neither of them look good with lighter hair, it just doesn’t complement their skin tones. They’re already gorgeous just the way they are, they shouldn’t try to go lighter.

  4. Isn’t Leighton Meester a natural blond though? So its not surprising that she would have lighter hair then in GG.

  5. I think it’s their MAKEUP that’s done poorly. Kim should not wear her blue-toned makeup with her yellow/honey toned hair.

    Megan should not wear silver/grey shadow with her streaks.

    If they choose the right palette, the hair would look nice. Megan could dye her whole head light and it would make more sense than just having strands of blonde. Strange looking. I think Megan’s beautiful though!
