Best Hair Color in Hollywood

I have a thing for redheads. Trust me, the day I start coloring my hair will be the day I officially become an auburn-hued lady. With that being said, if I had to pick the best color in Hollywood, I would declare Isla Fisher’s color the most swoon-worthy. Hello, GORGEOUS.

InStyle recently published their picks for Best Color in Hollywood. Take a look and tell me if you agree…if not, who’s your celebrity favorite?


THE COLOR: “Jen’s hair color is a light brown base with golden-blond highlights, and some baby-blond highlights focused on the ends,” says Negin, of L.A.’s Sally Hershberger salon, who visits Aniston at home to give her this enviable color.

WHO CAN WEAR IT: “Jen’s color can work on a lot of people because it has more depth and variation—so darker skin tones all the way to lighter ones, and any eye color works,” says Negin.

HOW TO GET IT: “Ask your colorist for a light brown base, golden-blond highlights throughout, and baby-blond highlights on the ends,” suggests Negin. “I wouldn’t try to get this color at home, as the highlights can get really messy if you’re not a professional.”

THE COLOR: Gina Gilbert, of the Serge Normant at John Frieda salon in L.A., who colors Jennifer Connelly’s hair, calls it a dark, warm, rich brown.

WHO CAN WEAR IT: “This works best on natural brunettes,” says Gilbert. And while anyone can wear a rich brown shade, Gilbert says that this shade “makes light eyes really stand out.”

HOW TO GET IT: “Ask for a semi-permanent or vegetable color in a warm, rich, dark brown,” says Gilbert.

THE COLOR: “Kate’s hair is a single-process blond with highlights,” says New York-based colorist Sharon Dorram, who works with the Oscar winner. “The base is lifted two to three shades lighter than her natural color, creating a honey-blond color. The highlights around the face are baby blond.”

WHO CAN WEAR IT: “This color works best on anyone with a peaches-and-cream complexion and light eyes,” says Dorram. “The best results will also come from someone who has a light to medium-light ash-brown base color.”

HOW TO GET IT: Ask for a honey-blond base and layers of highlights that are woven into the hair. “This is not a color that can be achieved in one visit,” adds Dorram.

    I’m glad Jennifer Connelly made the list; her hair is gorgeous. I love Kate Winslet in general, but I actually think I like her hair better darker. And I would have put Nicole Kidman on the list over Sienna Miller.

    I totally agree about Kate Winslet. That particular shade doesn’t do much for me.

    I also am glad Jennifer Connelly made the list. Her hair always looks beautiful and she never gets credit for it. The shade is quite lovely. Aniston’s always looks great. Winslet’s is too blonde, it looks better with some red in it. I prefer Nicole Kidman with redder highlights too. Too blonde washes out some of these ladies and makes them look older.

    I’m a huge fan of Jennifer Aniston’s color. It always looks so natural (even though I know it’s not). It’s the type of blonde I find myself struggling to be.

    I’m also a fan of Marcia Cross’s red mane. I know it’s really hard to maintain a color like that. Probably not as hard for her since she’s naturally a redhead. And it goes so well with her porcelain skin.

    Ooh, I’m with you on Isla Fisher. That is gorgeous!!

    I also think Julia Roberts can do no wrong, whether she’s auburn or golden brown or blond. It’s always right for her skin coloring.

    Isla Fisher, Julia Roberts, Reese Witherspoon, Liv Tyler (beautiful glossy brunette), and… oh, um, Whoorl! :)

    How do you know if a color will work for you? My hair is naturally very dark brunette, close to Leighton Meester’s (Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl) before she highlighted it; my skin tone is about the same — very, very light. But I am kind of curious to see if I can pull off something more blond. Except, I think I’d have to get a tan to do that!

    I always love Liv Tyler’s and Rachel Weisz’ hair. I’m a big fan of shiny, true brunettes (so of course I adore Jennifer’s colour).

    I am not loving that blonde on Kate though… I think I prefer her with a bit of red in her hair.

    Have to second (or third or fourth!) the Isla Fisher comments. I love Rachel McAdams when her hair is dark (a la Wedding Crashers rather than when she went blonder for The Notebook). Julia Roberts is always perfect, no matter what color. And I just love, love, love Gwen Stefani’s awful-slash-amazing bleach peroxide blonde. It looks great on her always!!

    Are you saying that you do not color your hair?

    I would like to stop coloring mine…but I’ve been coloring it for the past 15 years.

    If I make this choice, how do I keep it shiny and glossy? Do I just have to cultivate really healthy hair?

    I do not color my hair. It is virginal. :)

    If you are happy with your natural color, let the virgin hair grow! Ceasing to color your hair isn’t going to make it dull, if anything it will gain more luster and shine because it won’t be processed.

    But it’s the shine that really makes Jennifer Aniston’s look. What I wouldn’t give to know exactly which anti-frizz, serum-y product would help provide that shiny-shine (while taming the frizzy halo that forms around my hair in the summertime).
