Britney Spears goes brunette to promote her latest perfume: cute or mousy?

Britney Spears went from her trademark golden blonde hair to a warm brown. She Instagrammed the photo above where she’s holding a bottle of her latest perfume, Naughty & Nice, and sporting newly-dyed hair. I like this color on Britney much, much better than the brassy blonde she had at the People’s Choice Awards just a month ago. Here’s a look back at that color, which looked like her colorist tried to match the shade to a new cheap wig he wanted her to wear. That’s some Barbie hair.

See what I mean? That was kind of fug, especially from the back. It’s hard to tell from this Instagram photo but I think this color looks more natural. It’s obvious that only the crown of her head is real hair, but that goes with the territory for Britney.

This isn’t the first time Britney has gone brunette. Back in 2008, when Britney was hanging out with questionable characters Sam Lutfi and paparazzo Adnan Ghalib (whom she eventually got separate restraining orders against) she had brown hair too. (People Magazine chronicles Britney’s hair history if you’re interested.) Britney’s hair back then definitely wasn’t as cute as it is now. Here are some throwback pictures, and I swear I didn’t pick the worst ones! These are the worst ones.

    She looks younger as a brunette.

  2. Mrs. Darcy says:

    I agree she looks younger, now let’s get her a decent haircut and rip out the extensions. It is a dramatic change, I don’t know why a dark honey blonde with some lowlights has never been her go to, sure it’s Aniston boring but it’s way classier than Barbie blonde and wouldn’t wash her out as much as this extreme brunette.

  3. MrsBPitt says:

    I love the new brunette on her….she looks beautiful!

  4. Brown Eyed Girl says:

    love it! she looks younger now and the color is less brassy/trashy. Always have love for my britney girl!

  5. Blannie says:

    With her money, why can’t she get some better extensions that don’t look like ratty doll hair? I don’t get it with these celebs and bad hair. She needs to call Jennifer Aniston to find out who does her extensions and get there STAT!

  6. sweetpea says:

    I sometimes think her blond hair feels like the hairdressing doll I had as a kid. Couldn’t run a brush through it so I had to simply pin it up to make it look less ugly. And is it just me or is there something off about her face in the second pic?

  7. Kiddo says:

    I like her better with darker hair, but why is the brown color so flat? In fact, the blonde color is really flat too. They both look a little unnatural without variations in tone; high or low lights.

    This poor girl out there shilling perfume-what is ‘enough money’?? (For her ‘handlers’)…
    That said, She does really need to get her hair in order…she should have taken out all those extensions years ago and let it just grow out -no color no nothing…..I prefer her blonde-but a color that actually occurs in nature…

  9. QQ says:

    IDK yall historically Dark hair on Britney is like an advent calendar of Bad Stuff

  10. Ellie66 says:

    She looks good with darker hair but the empty sad look in her eyes not so much. :(

  11. MichelleSF says:

    That first photo is so sad… that is the emptiest, fakest smile. Seeing that makes it hard to comment on anything else, but strictly speaking on hair color, closer to your natural will always look better and younger.

  12. amanda says:

    Per usual, this just makes me worry about her.
    Her hair has always been a bit of a barometer for her currently mental health.

    Seeing her with a drastic change in color, gazing into a mirror, with unhappy eyes and and uncertain smile, has me thinking the worst for her.

  13. KLO says:

    All I see in the top picture is her sad, sad eyes.

  14. Mylene - Montreal says:

    I Love her brunette !!! Better look !

  15. Maritza says:

    The danger sign would be if she wore the pink wig again, that’s when she would speak with the British accent.

  16. JenniferJustice says:

    Her face looks “off” in the first two picks because we’re not used to her new nose yet. Look at her nose in the last pic with Lufty or whoever that is. Her nose used was way wider in past years. She just had a nose job last fall and she looks completely different now IMO.

  17. shellybean says:

    Those throwback pics are making my head itch just looking at them. Poor Brit. So glad she’s past that.

    I prefer her blonde. I’m flying to Vegas this weekend to see her show, I wonder if she’ll still be brunette then.

  18. Dirtnap says:

    Saw the pic before the headline and thought Sally Field had a facelift. Now that I realize
    it’s Brit, I have to admit that I like the darker hair on her.

  19. Ellie says:

    She can’t do anything without people thinking back to 2007/thinking she’s sad/empty/clueless.

    STOP. She looks fine. She’s just smiling in a mirror.
    People really see what they want to see don’t they?

  20. Meggin says:

    I have always loved Britney as a brunette and disliked her with that cheap blonde hair. I think the brunette compliments her so much better.

  21. testington says:

    Is she ever going to have a hair color other than cheap bleach blond or box brown? Her natural light brown hair was lovely and it’s been well over a decade since we’ve seen it.
