There are very few women in the world who are natural blondes. In fact, just two percent of the world’s population is naturally blonde. Women have been trying to go blonde even before Christ. In accident Rome, women actually tried to die their hair blonde with pigeon droppings. In renaissance Venice, they used horse urine. No word on how effective those two methods worked.
Being blonde has been a signature look for many actresses in Hollywood. But even if it looks natural, it’s not easy to have the color as a signature look. Take Marilyn Monroe, for example. According to her long-time hairdresser, Gladys Rasmussen, Marilyn’s signature look took a lot of work, “There are several problems with doing Marilyn's hair; its very fine and therefore hard to manage. It gets oily if it isn't shampooed every day and her hair is naturally so curly that to build a coiffure for her I have to first give her a straight permanent. The way we got her shade of platinum is with my own secret blend of Sparkling Silver bleach plus 20 volume peroxide and a secret formula of silver platinum rinse to take the yellow out.” It’s much easier for the ionic blondes of Hollywood to maintain their hair today. Everyone from Gwyneth Paltrow to Amy Poehler has a team making their signature shades look fabulous.
Unfortunately though, many actresses try to go blonde and it just doesn't work for them. Or perhaps they look beautiful, but not as beautiful as they do brunette. Here are ten celebs that went blonde, but just shouldn't have.
10 Kim Kardashian
It practically broke the Internet when Kim Kardashian went blonde a few weeks ago. However, there were conflicting reports about whether it was Kim’s real hair or a wig. First, one her colorists, Lori Goddard told US Weekly that Kim’s “blonde-on-blonde” included a jaw dropping $500 worth of highlights. So it had it be real, right? The reality star told US Weekly “I was like, 'Why not have a fun new look?’” No one really should have been surprised Kim went blonde because back in 2011, she told In Style Hair, “I wish I could have platinum blond hair like Gwen Stefani, but it wouldn't work on me.”

Rihanna is known for her short, wild and sometimes shaved hair. It’s part of her signature bad girl look. But the pop singer certainly knows how to mix it up and has gone blonde several times. In May 2013, Rihanna posted a pic to her Instagram account sporting long Beyoncé-esque tresses. The next day the singer Tweeted, “I woke up in a new….weave!” However, a lot of times Ri Ri has gone blonde, it hasn’t been a weave, just a wig. Rihanna’s blondness has inspired others to go blonde, including Rita Ora who was called the “blonde Rihanna” after her performance at the 2015 Oscars.
