Blondes allegedly have more fun, but some of the most famous women in the world have been crossing over to the dark side recently.

We take a look at some of the celebrities making the case for brunette hair colour this season.

Lucy Hale

Lucy Hale, who has gone from brunette to blonde and back again in the past, is one of the latest recruits to Team Brunette, with the Pretty Little Liars star shaking things up again this month with a new look.

She has shared her joy at the transformation with her 23 million Instagram followers, saying it “feels so good”.

Former blonde bombshell Charlize Theron made a surprise beauty move at the Oscars this year, debuting a sleek, razor-sharp bob in a rich chestnut hue.

“Changing your hair is best way to transform yourself,” the man behind the transformation, Adir Abergel, divulged on Instagram.

Emma Stone

Redhead Emma Stone also had a darker tinge to her hair color at the 2019 Oscars, where she walked the red carpet sporting a coppery-brown chignon that brought out the colour of her blue eyes.

Cate Blanchett

Cate Blanchett had a brief but striking flirtation with the dark hair dye earlier this year when she dyed her locks for the play When We Have Sufficiently Tortured Each Other.

“I just felt like it was right for the character and it was right for the look of the play,” she recently told Vogue.
