dark brown hair! hell Catherine Zeta-Jones has dark brown hair! You must have reaaaaaaaaaaaaally high standards when it comes to hair colour ‘cos hers is at least a shade or two lighter

andrew December 15, 2013 at 7:52 am

yes, that’s absolutely NOT dark brown

J.J. December 16, 2013 at 9:52 pm

whats wrong with you? isn’t it obvious she’s got a brown dye in her hair and that it’s dark underneath, look at her virtually black eyebrows for crying out loud. Besides we can’t go by the picture on the website, if you really want to contest celebrity hair and eye colours, look them up on google images and you’ll see maggie grace has dyed her hair numerous times different colours but always has dark roots.

First! I’m no hairstylist but I know what a dye job is, so how about cutting back on the patronizing tone, alright? Second! I took a good look at her roots which is why I posted. Third! eyebrows can determine very little on a person’s hair. Irish actor Stuart Townsend comes to mind

Anders Holm

This Norwegian kid

While I have faded blond, mousy hair, my own eyebrows are practically see through & my facial hair sprouts in a ginger colour

you’re getting very defensive on something that isn’t that important and you’re making yourself sound rather foolish, maggie grace is dark haired, I don’t see why that’s so hard for you to process, take a look for yourself

J.J. December 18, 2013 at 5:48 pm

correction; her hair is dark brown (brunette) and her eyes should be listed as forest green (green w brown)

smiley February 6, 2014 at 12:41 am

I agree with you. Her hair should just be listed as “brown.”

smiley February 6, 2014 at 12:38 am

Her eyebrows could be drawn on. This is what makes you look ridiculous, when everyone is arguing with you and yet you still think you’re right.

J.J. February 6, 2014 at 2:32 am

her eyebrows are clearly real, not drawn and the colour is clearly dark. and if you look her hair has a brown dye and is rather dark at the roots. people disagree with me because they don’t take as much notice as I do or examine things properly. it would be like someone arguing over a colour that’s in between purple and blue, I’d just say it’s violet but I’d still get ignorant people like you still willing to argue your point for no apart reason but for the sake of causing an argument

Her mother’s name is Valinn Everett. I wonder if anyone can trace her mother’s ancestry. I am assuming it is also German and English.

andrew November 20, 2013 at 5:28 am

English or Scottish

J.J. September 22, 2013 at 11:57 pm

correction; her hair is dark brown (brunette)

J.J. June 26, 2013 at 6:00 am

correction; her eyes are forest green (green+brown) they’re not brown
