11 Hottest Brunettes Who Look Horrible As Blondes

The saying is that blondes have more fun, but these beautiful brunettes prove that phrase oh-so-wrong.

There are some women in the world who look equally as beautiful no matter what hair color they are rocking. For example, Emilia Clarke looks gorgeous as a blonde or brunette. Then again, Emilia Clarke could probably be bald and still be one of the most beautiful women in the world. She’s pretty much perfect.

Though in the case of the eleven women on this list, they can't really pull off both colors, and especially not in the way Emilia Clarke does. It’s odd how a hair color can make such a difference in one’s appearance. Being that celebrities are often playing with their appearances, either for roles they take or just because, we've gotten to see these dark haired beauties with lighter locks.

While blondes are usually portrayed as "the hot girl," brunettes aren't always just the cynical, quirky best friends. Sometimes, brunettes are the kickass main character (Lara Croft!), which makes sense seeing as darker hair can make a woman look like a dark temptress. Like, honestly, some of the most beautiful women in the world are brunettes.

While it was cool to see what these hot brunettes looked like with blonde hair, we're glad that they mostly went back to their darker mane. Luckily, when you're a rich celebrity, it's fairly easy to make drastic changes to your hair. So, these are eleven super hot brunettes who look much less attractive with lighter hair. I guess you can't win them all...

11 Jessica Biel

Jessica Biel is undeniably sexy. I mean, if someone is hot enough for Justin Timberlake, who is the rest of the world to argue?

8 Kim Kardashian


Love her or hate her, Kim Kardashian is beautiful. Yes, yes, she paid for her looks and she may have had surgeries and blah, blah, blah but she’s hot so let’s all just accept that and get over it.

Now, that we’ve accepted the fact that Kim Kardashian is hot, we can all also accept the fact that Kim Kardashian is much hotter with her darker locks rather than her bleach blonde hair. Why did Kim K go over to the blonde side? Well, apparently she thought it might help her get pregnant. Yeah, we’re not sure about the logic to that either but while she was having trouble conceiving before Saint, Kim said she was done over thinking it and went blonde.

7 Vanessa Hudgens

It seems that Vanessa Hudgens is doing anything she can to break free of her Disney days. One thing the beauty, who was known for her long, dark hair, did was dye her hair blonde. High School Musical no more.

6 Natalie Portman

5 Leighton Meester

Like Kristen Stewart, Leighton Meester is another natural blonde who is better know for her brunette look. In order to land the role of Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl, the natural blonde had to dye her hair brunette. Sure, it was a risky move for a young actress trying to make it in Hollywood but seeing as Gossip Girl ran for a cool six seasons, we’d say the gamble paid off.

4 Anna Kendrick

Anna Kendrick has actually zigzagged through basically every hair color in the spectrum. She’s been a brunette, blonde and redhead. The 30-year-old doesn’t really have to depend on her looks considering how talented she is but being hot doesn’t hurt her career.

Kendrick has not only seen commercial success in the Twilight series and Pitch Perfect but she’s also gained herself an Oscar nomination for her performance in Up in the Air.

3 Anne Hathaway

How amazing does Anne Hathaway’s full, dark locks look against her fair skin? She looks like Snow White. So, why would she ever want to dye her hair blonde? You got us.

2 Angelina Jolie

1 Zooey Dechanel

In Zooey Dechanel's case, her hair leap to a darker hue which got her to where is now in Hollywood. Her natural color is blonde, which she can be seen showing off in the movie Elf. In the early years of her career, she kept to her blonde roots but didn’t gain much attention. Once she switched up her look to a darker do and bangs, Zooey’s quirky hair suddenly fit her quirky characters and people started to take notice. Now, Deschanel is a Hollywood heavy hitter, from starring in indie darling (500) Days of Summer and New Girl, the latter for which she has won an Emmy and been nominated for three Golden Globes.
