Do You Like Katherine Heigl As A Brunette Or A Blonde?

Katherine Heigl has been sporting dark brown, almost black hair for most of the year. But recently, she lopped off several inches and switched things up to a curly bob for the "Killers" premiere.

Hair Model Citizen: Penelope Can Do No Wrong

It's always a bit of a shame when a ravishing brunette highlights her hair.

It's pretty safe to assume that when a recession hits, people are going to cut corners financially, and for plenty of women, salon visits get crossed off the list immediately.

When Being A Blonde Isn’t So Fun

A women wrote to Salon.com’s resident advice columnist, Cary Tennis, and as usual, I was a little confused by his answer. That is to say, I really couldn’t figure out what his answer was. The woman wrote that she met a guy a few months ago on Craigslist’s “Just Friends” section. She was new to…
