Courtney Stodden dyes hair from platinum to brown: Hair color tips

Courtney Stodden has dyed her hair from platinum to brown, following in the footsteps of another blonde bombshell, Pamela Anderson. According to Friday's Us Weekly report, the 19-year-old reality TV star explained why she made the change after she showed off her new brunette hair color at the Wowie Awards on December 12. The Hair Care Examiner has a few hair color tips to go from blonde to brown.

The fall/winter is the perfect time for a change and dying the hair platinum to brown, as Courtney Stodden has, makes for healthier hair, as it eliminates extreme lightening. However, the photo of the newly single Courtney in Us Weekly displays her brown hair, but it is crimped and frizzed, assumedly the hairstyle Stodden wanted, but not the healthy look one would expect after choosing a brunette shade.

This isn’t to say Courtney Stodden doesn’t look great with darker hair; the new brunette hair color accents her baby blues. Courtney told Us Weekly "she feels born again" from the hair color change, which is part of the next phase of her life.

Lately I've been a little bit of a daredevil, and I'm trying to enter into the next chapter of my life. I thought this was kind of a good example to prove to myself that I can do it. It was a huge risk, but I'm glad I did it.

When going from such a light shade of platinum blonde to a deep brunette like Courtney Stodden did, it is imperative to NEVER attempt this drastic hair color change at home with a box. One must visit a licensed and experienced, professional hair colorist for optimal results. The blonde requires a filler, a step only working pros can master before the hair is dyed the desired shade. Courtney Stodden’s makeover cannot be achieved, nor should it be attempted with a store-bought box.
