On a lighter note...

Loving Kim Kardashian's lighter locks. (found via - one of my guilty pleasures. Image credit: Getty.) I went darker the last time I had my hair done ... against my better judgement. I've read that the darker your hair is, that any flaws in your skin will be more noticeable. (translation: next time I will be framing my face with highlights...)

Have you seen Fergie's darker look? I'm not sure if I like this or not... The "before" is on the right. (It's a much softer look, don't you think?) (found via Glamour's Beauty Blog. Images: WireImage.) There's a survey being taken over on BellaSugar ... currently over 70% do not like the new look.

What do you think?

(By the way, this reminds me of a post by one of my favorite bloggers ... who is absolutely adorable with her dark locks - even first thing in the morn.)


  1. I'm not feeling Kim's locks. I think 'Beyonce' when I glance at her now. Fergie needs an extension intervention. I can't tell if I like her hair but I know I hate the severe style on her.

  2. I think it very much depends on the girl. I know for a fact that lighter hair doesn't suit me (having tried it) - but then I also agree with you that the darker your hair is the more noticeable your flaws are. My natural hair colour is jet black and didn't suit me either! So I now have a mix of my natural hair colour (black) with highlights (some red, some blonde) and for some reason that works best! It's clearly not a "natural" look but it doesn't bother me :-)

    I just wanted to say thank you for leaving such a lovely comment on my blog. And well done for discovering Serendipitous Freelance Writer as well - hers is one of my favourite blogs so do follow her! :-)

  3. i don't care for Fergie's new severe hair the blond picture you posted is a very good look for her.

  4. I don't really like Fergie's darker hair -- the color looks good with her skin tone, but it seems to heavy, too severe.

  5. fergies lighter locks are so much better. or maybe its the straightness of the dark

  6. Good-Grace, tell me you know about this's awesome.
