Jennifer Aniston’s new color is so blonde it’s almost platinum! Experts say this washes her out!

When we watched Jennifer Aniston on Good Morning America on Feb. 10, we were shocked to see how much she lightened her hair! Instead of the golden blonde color it used to be, her hair is now so light it could almost be called platinum — that’s quite a change! We loved Jen’s color before, and we think she went a little too blonde this time.

We contacted Nikki Pena, a hair colorist from the Pierre Michel salon in New York City who specializes in blonde coloring, to see what an expert thinks about Jen’s color change. And Nikki agreed with us! She said, “I definitely think it’s way too blonde.” Nikki said Jen’s old hair color had a “golden glow”, while her new color is more of a light, beige, weak blonde. She added, “On her skin tone, the gold complements her much more.”

Not only that, but Nikki doesn’t feel this light blonde is a good color for the winter season. “It washes her out completely,” she said. “Maybe if she had it in the summertime. But in general, the golden is much prettier on her.”

Nikki also said that if you’re looking to go blonde, a more golden tone is almost always the better choice! “I would recommend to clients to always go for something a little bit more on the golden side, because it gives them a pretty golden tone for their skin,” she said. “That color would actually be less maintenance and is healthier for the hair. It would give you more shine, and just looks prettier in general.” However, if you really love this light, platinum blonde Jennifer is now sporting, Nikki says all you have to do is add in “a whole bunch of very pale highlights throughout the hair.”

What do you think HollywoodLifers? Should Jen go back to her original golden hair color?
