Light or Dark Side? 10 Celebrity Moms Who Have Gone Blonde and Brunette

I have been a blonde all my life. I was born with bright white hair and over the past 30 years I have experimented with different shades of blonde. I’ve been ‘dirty blonde’, sun-bleached blonde, I-think-that-is-blonde and have now started to highlight my hair in the perfect shade for me.

A few years ago after the birth of my 3rd child, I wanted a big change. I had already taken the plunge and cut off 15 inches of my hair so the next logical thing was to drastically switch out my hair color. So, that’s what I did — I went dark brown.

It didn’t even last a whole year before I found myself back to the blonde hair that I have known, but the change was fun. There are a lot of celebrity moms who have tried the same change too at one point in their life. Some have gone back closer to their natural hair color and others have stayed on the other side.

Click through to see 10 celebrity moms who have tried out being blonde and brunette:
