• Thankfully that ombr mess is just for a movie role and not an actual style choice. After shooting The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Rooney Mara kept the jet black hair, and we couldn't love it more. It serves to futher complement her fair skin and light eyes.

  • We wouldn't look happy either if we had to walk around with that awful hair color. Kat DeLuna looks fresh faced and natural as a brunette, so why the platinum 'do? Being blonde is not a requirement for pop stars.

  • For her role in Green Lantern, Blake Lively had to go red (What is with red-headed love interests in comic books?!), and we weren't so thrilled about it. Something about tan skin and red locks just doesn't gel. We prefer her blonde style any day.

  • For a while there, Christina Aguilera wanted to completely remove herself from the image we had of her, and then she realized that image wasn't so bad and went back to it. Needless to say, black hair is far too harsh for The Voice judge.

  • Mad Men's Elizabeth Moss recently shocked all when she showed off her platinum pixie on the red carpet. There's nothing better than a bold makeover, but we're secretly hoping Moss goes back to brunette soon. Her bright blue eyes get washed out with the blonde.

  • We know how tempting it can be to go red (Who's sexier than Jessica Rabbit?), but Jennifer Morrison proves it's not a one-shade-fits-all. Her auburn color is rich and shiny, but it almost looks like a wig. The blonde is much more natural and makes her look younger.

  • Blondes may have more fun, but it's not a color that works on everyone. When Katharine wore lighter locks, her dark eyes and eyebrows gave away her little color secret. She's since learned how to make her dark hair work by infusing auburn highlights throughout.

  • Katy Perry was born a blonde, but that orange-y color she's wearing on the left is anything but natural looking. We think dark brown/black best suits her big blue eyes.

  • Nicole Richie has made quite the transformation over the years. From a reality star with best friend Paris Hilton to a boho-chic devoted mom, she keeps us guessing. While the dark brown is too drastic against her light skin, the caramel blonde is the perfect shade.

  • This Kardashian sister might have been trying to stray away from her roots by going red. While it didn't look as awful as some hair disasters we've seen, we think her ombr flatters her most. She's able to keep things light on the ends but still wear a dark shade that matches her eyes.
