Bonkers for Brunette!

01 November 2010

When Grazia's Associate Beauty Editor Lauren Murdoch Smith recently announced she's considering going brunette, there was a collective gasp on the beauty desk. You see, we are a team of blondes - and light ones at that. But hey, there’s no denying that recently there’s been a definite move towards going darker... 

In last week’s Grazia, we reported on the bru–nu–ettes, a new tribe (Cleménce Poésy, Lily Cole, Vanessa Paradis and Keira Knightley) of brown-haired ladies that surfaced around Paris Fashion Week. A-list colourist and L’Oréal Paris Creative Director Christophe Robin told us, 'Brunette hair is like the little black dress – it provides the perfect frame for the face. This season’s shade is as natural-looking as possible and is a multi-faceted colour rather that one that is flat all over.'   

So last week, we saw Jessica Biel take the plunge and now Ashley Olsen has gone to the dark side with a rich brown 'do [above], which, we might add, looks totally FAB with those red lips.

What are your thoughts on the trend? And will YOU be going darker this winter?
