15 Brunette Celebs Who Were Born To Be Blonde Bombshells

15 Brunette Celebs Who Were Born To Be Blonde Bombshells

A lot of female celebrities have blonde or brunette hair—we know this for a fact. But what we don’t usually know is whether their hair color is natural or dyed. Part of their job as celebrities is sporting a different hair color to fit their roles better and most of them don’t go back to their natural roots until many years later, which is why it can be quite shocking, albeit usually in a good way, to see these stars with their original hair color. But what’s equally shocking is when we see these beauties ditch their natural hair color for something entirely different, unless we’re talking about Rihanna or Katy Perry who have had multiple hair color transformations over the years, then it’s not as shocking anymore (except maybe when Katy cut her hair short and dyed it blonde, making her look kind of like Miley Cyrus or a female Justin Bieber). Whether it’s going back to the original hair color or trying out a different shade, celebrity hair transformations are a sight to behold. But here, we have compiled a list of female brunette celebrities who have tried the blonde hue and ended up looking absolutely gorgeous.

15. Kylie Jenner

Anyone who doesn’t know Kylie Jenner must have been living under a rock. This reality TV star has been on Keeping Up with the Kardashians since she was 9 years old. She has since become a model and even launched her own line of cosmetic products. Up until a few years ago, she wasn’t much of a looker, but thanks to her family’s overwhelming wealth, she was able to transform herself into the stunning woman that she is now. One of the top 10 most followed individuals on Instagram and owning a mobile app that reached number one on the iTunes App Store, it’s undeniable that Jenner is one of the most influential celebrities right now. We can only imagine how many girls followed suit when she dyed her hair blonde.

14. Lucy Hale

Via and

Everyone’s favorite on the show Pretty Little Liars, Lucy Hale, is a multi-talented actress who has won various awards for her role as Aria Montgomery in the show. And we’re not exaggerating by saying she’s multi-talented—she actually came to prominence when she became one of the five winners of American Juniors, American Idol’s children’s spin-off. She later released her debut studio album in 2014. For so many years, we’d only seen Hale with dark brown hair, which is fine because the shade looked really good on her. It’s almost like anything black looks good on her, and we couldn’t imagine her sporting a different shade of hair. But then she ditched this old look and went blonde, and we realized how great she looks with the lighter hue.

13. Megan Fox

Via and

It seems like it was only yesterday when Megan Fox played the love interest of Sam Witwicky, Shia LaBeouf’s character in the blockbuster hit Transformers. It has already been 10 years since the movie came out, but we still remember how huge it was. And who could forget about how smitten all the boys were with Fox? She became a sex symbol overnight and went on to appear in the hottest and most beautiful women lists, including Maxim’s Hot 100 lists, FHM’s Sexiest Woman in the World and People’s Most Beautiful at Every Age. She was so gorgeous, they just had to cast her as Jennifer Check in the horror comedy Jennifer’s Body. Only seen with dark hair, it was quite shocking to see her with blonde hair and looking really different at that.

12. Emilia Clarke

Via and

Here’s another female celebrity that everyone should probably know by now, whether or not they watch the super popular fantasy drama TV series Game of Thrones. Seeing Clarke with blonde hair is probably the norm for many people, especially those who have seen all seven seasons of GOT. But if you watch celebrity news, then you probably have seen her rock her natural hair color, which is—you guessed it—a shade of brown. For those who had known Clarke first as Daenerys Targaryen, it was probably quite confusing to see her with brown hair for the first time. But either way, she looks exquisite, and if you’d like to see more of her brunette self, check out the romance movie Me Before You, which came out last year.

11. Anne Hathaway

Via and

Anne Hathaway is a household name in the Hollywood industry. Her breakthrough role was Mia Thermopolis in the Disney comedy The Princess Diaries, which had a sequel called Royal Engagement. From there, she has gone on to star in a huge number of movies from different genres, such as Brokeback Mountain, The Devil Wears Prada, The Dark Knight Rises, Les Misérables and Interstellar. A truly talented actress, Hathaway has a long list of awards and nominations. And while she’s not exactly a sex symbol, she has a charm that can melt just about anyone. For a long time, Hathaway has let her natural brown hair flow, although she did wear a wig for her role in Alice in Wonderland. But nobody would have expected to see her with this bright blonde hair.

10. Miranda Kerr

Via and

Miranda Kerr is one of those breathtaking ladies that we can only dream of being with. A highly-successful supermodel, Kerr was the first Australian to join the Victoria’s Secret angels. She started modeling at the young age of 13, and has since become one of the highest-earning models. If you’re a fan, you probably already know that she married Lord of the Rings and Pirates of the Caribbean star Orlando Bloom in 2007 and that they have a son together. But this marriage didn’t last forever, and she eventually married Snapchat co-founder/CEO Evan Spiegel. With her brunette and blonde photos side by side, it’s hard to know which shade looks better on her. Heck, she would probably even look just as great with bright orange hair.

9. Kim Kardashian

Via and

Arguably the most influential member of the Kardashian-Jenner blended family, Kim Kardashian West joins the list of brunette celebrities who look stunning with blonde hair. Regardless of how you feel about her (she’s either loved or hated), we can’t deny the fact that Mrs. West is a head-turner. Blessed with not just a beautiful face but also with a body that’s to die for, Kim K (or Kim W?) went from being Paris Hilton’s friend and stylist to one of the most influential and popular TV personalities in the world. According to, her net worth is currently $175 million. Rocking long black hair for a long time, we didn’t think she could pull off any other shade, but we were proven wrong when we saw how alluring she was with blonde hair.

8. Emma Roberts

Via and

The American Horror Story star, although not a sex symbol either, has appeared in various lists of the most beautiful female celebrities under 30 found all over the Internet. A rather petite woman standing at only 5 feet and one inch, Roberts has this delicate yet headstrong aura about her that we just can’t resist. We also kind of watched her grow up, starting from her roles in Unfabulous, Nancy Drew, Hotel for Dogs, Valentine’s Day and It’s Kind of a Funny Story to her more mature roles in Lymelife, Scream 4, We’re the Millers, Nerve and Scream Queens. Roberts was dating her American Horror Story co-star Evan Peters for a few years until they officially broke it off in May 2016. Roberts looks cute with blonde hair, but she’s also pretty attractive as a brunette.

7. Rachel McAdams

Via and

For many people, it can be quite hard to believe that Rachel McAdams was the same person who played the character of Regina George in the teen comedy film Mean Girls. Honestly, we wouldn’t be surprised if it was her only “mean” role. Her roles following Mean Girls were not remotely similar to her role as Regina George, just take for example her roles in The Notebook, Wedding Crashers, The Time Traveler’s Wife, Aloha and the more recent Doctor Strange. But we’re not complaining—we believe she was perfect for those roles. But if there’s one thing that she brought back from her Mean Girls days that we’re happy about, it’s the blonde locks. It makes her look more captivating and younger, don’t you think?

6. Jessica Alba

Via and

We don’t know what Jessica Alba has been up to lately apart from being pregnant again (for the third time) and being recently caught on camera while reaching out to take an acquaintance’s hand as she stepped out of her ride in high heels. One Google search, however, and you’ll know she’s actually filmed a few movies in the past few years. But gone are the days when she was extremely popular. While she had not completely left Hollywood yet, she’s gotten herself busy with the company she co-founded called The Honest Company, which sells non-toxic household products. It feels like it was only yesterday when she played the role of a genetically enhanced super-soldier in the cyberpunk TV series Dark Angel. We can’t believe she’s about to have her third child.

5. Lady Gaga

Via and

It’s safe to say that Lady Gaga has such a colorful personality that goes well with all her colorful outfits. We honestly believe that her musical talent and creativity have revolutionized pop music in some way. But it’s not just her talent in music that draws people to her. Apart from her eccentric fashion sense, she has a strong personality that can intimidate just about anyone, even former U.S. President Barack Obama himself. While it’s true that some people prefer the timid and quiet type as a love interest, there are also many people like us who truly appreciate Lady Gaga’s strong character. Not to mention she looks really fine as a blonde. We might even prefer it over her natural hair color, although that’s not bad, too.

4. Scarlett Johansson

Via and

Scarlett Johansson is one of those actors who started young in the industry. Wanting to be an actress from a young age, she got her film debut when she was barely 10-years-old. Her long and strong background in the industry has won her many awards for her performances, and has even made her one of the world’s highest-paid actresses. She even has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2008, she married actor Ryan Reynolds, but they later divorced in 2011. Apparently, the two grew apart from focusing too much on their careers. Speaking of career, Johansson had to have blonde hair for many of her roles so this entry isn’t surprising at all. What’s surprising for some people may be the fact that she’s a natural-born brunette.

3. Blake Lively

Via and

Blake Lively is not just an “it” girl in the teen drama television series Gossip Girl, she’s also an “it” girl in real life, or “it” woman if we have to be more accurate. Her acting talent has been praised many times, and she was even featured in Time Magazine’s annual 100 influential people in 2011. Her looks are worth mentioning as well—she was named the most desirable woman by in 2011 and one of most beautiful at every age by People in 2012. A natural brunette, we’ve seen Lively sport red hair and she looked absolutely stunning. And maybe we’re biased, but we think blonde locks suit her best. Maybe it’s from years of watching Gossip Girl.

2. Camilla Belle

Via and

Last on our list is Camilla Belle, an American actress best known for her roles in Rip Girls and Back to the Secret Garden. Not a Hollywood A-lister, Belle isn’t very well known to audiences. She hasn’t been in extremely financially successful movies like Megan Fox and Margot Robbie, but she deserves a spot because after all, she’s a naturally-born brunette who, like everyone else on this list, has dyed her hair blonde at some point in her life. We don’t know how good her acting skills are, but maybe with enough luck, she’ll eventually land a role in a movie that will become a box-office hit. But she’s gorgeous whether she’s a brunette or a blonde, so she should probably do some modeling on the side.

1. Margot Robbie

Via and

Who doesn’t love Margot Robbie? After starring in The Wolf of Wall Street alongside Leonardo di Caprio as his character’s second, smokin’ hot wife, everyone couldn’t get enough of her. We wanted more, and the film industry must have heard our cry since she went on to appear in several movies after that, and she is even starring in four movies set to be released in 2018. Either that, or they plainly saw how talented of an actress she was. But what made us fall deeply in love with her was her portrayal of Harley Quinn in the superhero film Suicide Squad, which actually received praise. But if you’ve only seen these two movies, you probably hadn’t seen her sport brown hair until now. She looks just as gorgeous, if you ask us.
