Emma Stone’s Hair Color: White Blond vs. Strawberry Blond

Will the real Emma Stone please stand up?

The answer is both…and there are too many Emmas to count! Anyone who loves to follow hairstyle trends and their fearless leader knows why there are many versions of this blonde/redhead/brunette/almost-any-color-ette. She ranks with other famous chameleons yet provides us with a milder versions ranging from Madonna to Rihanna, Lady Gaga to Gwen Stefani, and Drew Barrymore to Katy Perry…

her hair color changes from month to month or week to week!

The White Blonde above was the color du jour on Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards, where she was named MTV’s first Trailblazer. Only a month ago her Strawberry Blonde was enchanting at the MET Ball 2012. (With those Lanvin hair ornaments and higher-than-high updo everyone was talking about the hot look.)

Emma’s shades are more wearable than most

As we hinted at above, Emma’s hair colors are more likely to be copied, as opposed to the other makeover queens. Obviously bleached blond isn’t for everyone, AND the majority of real women would choose an Em shade that’s fairly close to their natural hair color (one to two shades lighter or darker). Single-process, semi-permanent treatments are easier to maintain and change than high- and lowlights.

Even similar styles are different, depending on finishing touches & the color

Here, two updos feel different…the first exudes classic elegance, the second girlish charm! Curls are the base of both styles; the first ends up as a messy bun, and the second a messy topknot. Both looks were designed to be “fun,” according to Em’s stylist Mara Roszak. We think she achieved that, don’t you?

Battle of the Blondes: Rita Ora’s hair vs. Rihanna’s hair

Different shades of blond, same kind of pose
Stars copying their predecesors is nothing new, but entertainment writers make it seem that way when referring to Rita Ora and Rihanna. The first “R” has even been called The British Rihanna. While they don’t look exactly alike, they have similar tastes such as low-cut gowns, little tats on their left sides and long blond curls. As for the differences, their light haircolors are not the same here: Rita poses in a Marilyn-like platinum and RiRi wears a hard-to-define blond all her own. The texture varies, too. Rita’s hair is smooth and polished and Rihanna’s full and loose!

Their blond hair color and Beanies are nearly the same!
Earlier this year, the singers were photographed in trendy Beanies and bleached blond. Since then Rita has topped the Vodafone Big Top 40 for a second week with her debut single R.I.P. Hence, the continued comparisons between Rita and the global superstar.

While their cat eyes are not identical, is their hair color?
It’s hard to tell, because  these images are captured in different settings. Rihanna’s hair has a hint of butter color, but that may be due to the natural lighting.

In the end, these questions aren’t important. It’s not a crime to emulate famous names from the past. Just think of all the women who have tried to look like Marilyn Monroe: Madonna, Christina Aguielera, Lady Gaga, Gwen Stefani, Michelle Williams and many more actresses.

What’s more interesting is whether Rita will continue to be labeled the new Rihanna and whether she will end up with a fraction of RiRi’s fame!

Katy Perry’s haircolor sings the blues

It wasn’t surprising to see Katy Perry in blue hair at the MTV Movie Awards, but it WAS surprising when she wore the color in a way that works for real women! Compared with her electric blue wig, the pastel hairpieces seem downright conservative. The peek-a-boo streaks twirl through ringlets, making them new and different without screaming “Look at me”!

If you WANT to scream “Look at me,” follow Katy’s cue. Electric blue perfectly fits the singer’s acting career which includes providing the voice of Smurfette in the Smurfs movie and guest starring in the Simpsons.  When asked about wearing the hot hue to the MTV event, Katy said it made sense because she’s wearing it on the cover of her California Gurls.

If you fall in-between mild and wild, consider going with heavier streaks of blue and purple as K.P. has done. Like the wig, these colored hairpieces require no commitment. They work especially well with full, loose curls. Russell Brand’s fiancee isn’t the only one dabbling with the haircolor. At a past MTV Music Awards show, Gwen Stefani stood out in pale blue pigtails. The daring women who dye for this shade have nothing on Marge Simpson who’s been wearing it longer than anyone (from the ’60s until now). 

It will be interesting to see if Katy is a blue-head when she plays herself (not animated) with the Simpson puppets in The Fight Before Christmas set to air on Dec. 5th. What do you think?
