The saying ‘blondes have more fun‘ has always bothered me. I’m a brunette and I have plenty of fun, but I had always wondered what it would be like. A few summers ago, I took the plunge into the world of bleach blonde hair. It was the worst hair decision I had ever made.
While bleached out locks may look amazing on stars like Amber Heard and Taylor Momsen (who I was surprisingly compared to a lot as a blonde), It just wasn’t a good look for me. My eyes are too dark and my skin is too olive. The guy I was dating at the time said stuff like “It just doesn’t look natural.” Well, duh! It wasn’t meant to look natural, but it was meant to look awesome…and it just didn’t. It felt like spaghetti and required a lot of styling just to make it look semi-healthy. I went back dark in a matter of months.
I wasn’t lucky enough to pull off being a blonde, but these style icons and celebrities totally are. Here are some of my favorite bleach blondes.
