Admittedly, this is not my all-time favourite hair color change in Hollywood history, but Rose McGowan has gone from brunette to a buttery blonde.  She looks lovely in this picture, but will need plenty of makeup to make sure her skin doesn’t look washed out.

That being said, McGowan has never shied away from trying major colour changes, and as stylists we say “That’s awesome!”  Here she is in 2007 with a light copper, which is really flattering and warming to her skin tone and eye colour.

Sometimes we end up loving a new hue, sometimes not, but it’s almost always fun to try.  The nice thing about colour is, it can always be changed. Not always easily, and not always inexpensively, but it can be done!  If you have questions about a major (or minor) colour change, have a consultation with a colour pro to see if what you’re thinking about is attainable and/or advisable – and affordable (Rose’s new solid blonde is super high-maintenance with touch-ups every 4 weeks on the nose).
