Where have all the famous redheads gone?

21 Aug

It seems a lot of famous redheads have gone blonde lately.  Blonde is one of the few colours that natural redheads and gingers can carry off well, as long as you get the right shade for your skin tone.  Here are the red hot blondes, and the red nots who should stay ginger.

Nicola Roberts

Girls Aloud’s Nicola has gone blonde, and I rather like it. She’s always been a hair colour chameleon but this blonde works really well with her super pale skin. Her look just gets better and better. Verdict: RED HOT

Nicola Roberts

Lily Cole

Hmm.  Ginger roots with blonde – this looks like a home hair dye job gone badly wrong. I love Lily as a redhead and this blonde just doesn’t work. Verdict: RED NOT.

Gillian Anderson

Scully’s nineties-tastic ginger bob is a distant memory now that Gillian’s gone blonde. Here she is at a recent event. I think the blonde really suits her. Verdict: RED HOT

Cynthia Nixon

Cynthia is a natural blonde but will forever be redheaded Miranda Hobbes in my mind. I can forgive her the cut (as she shaved her

head for a recent role) but the colour is really bad. Come back into the red! Verdict: RED NOT
