Whether it's for a role, following a break-up, or "just because," all of the celebs on this list have taken the peroxide plunge at some point. While some lived to tell the tale, others are still recovering from the tabloid and fan bashings. Guess we all know why the "star in hiding" baseball cap is such a necessity.
Blonde is a polarizing hair color. When Kim Kardashian unveiled her blondie locks people compared her to Draco Malfoy from Harry Potter (ouch!). People were unsure about Camilla Belle going honey-hued (was she just copying Taylor Swift?).

Let us know what you think after you check out this list of celebrities who went blonde.
