Carey Mulligan Ditches Her Brown Hair

July 22, 2011 By:

Carey Mulligan must have heard us begging and pleading to ditch the brown hair because she showed up to Comic Con in San Diego with a shorter blonder do.

Carey was one of the first people in Hollywood to sport a blonde pixie cut, but when everyone started to follow, she decided to grow it out and dye it brown. Not a good idea.

She originally went blonde back in 2009 for a film role and kept it that way. Even though she’s been blonde for years, she told Elle UK that she actually prefers being a brunette.

Just because you prefer something, doesn’t mean that it suits you. For example, I would love to be a red head, but I have come to terms with the fact that it looks hideous on me.

"I took Carey from a medium brown to a gorgeous, soft blonde," celebrity colorist Negin Zand told Us Weekly. "She wanted something more natural than the platinum color we've seen on her before and it really suits her. It looks amazing with her new, short cut!"

Carey gets a dumbs up from our end. The softer blonde is a great for the actress.
