Dear brunettes: Stop going blond! It’s scary-looking! Exhibit A: Jessica Alba (pictured). Exhibit B: Kim Kardashian. Exhibit C: Audrina Patridge. Exhibit D: Kat Von D. In exchange, all we got was Mischa “Crazy Eyes” Barton. Not a fair trade, you guys.

I’m hoping the popularity and awesomeness of (500) Days of Summer will encourage the fair-hared to consider going darker. Zooey Deschanel‘s luxurious locks in that movie were one gigantic ad for the awesome powers of chestnut brown hair.

PopWatchers, who should we try to convert to the dark (haired) side? Or is Team Brunette better off without those bleachy turncoats?
