Blake Lively’s ‘Green Lantern’ Brunette Look Not Easy to Achieve
Chocolate brown for "Green Lantern." Warner Bros.
tell you one thing: getting her haircolor just right for the role was no small feat.
Speaking to The Wall Street Journal about the role, the "Gossip Girl" star said there was an enormous effort to match the look of the DC Comics series during pre-production and filming. To wit: in order to get Lively's hair color the correct hue for Carol Ferris (Star Sapphire's normal-girl alter ego), Lively ended up testing 14 different brunette shades. (Who even knew 14 shades of brunette even existed?)
"I flew out to North Carolina just to test the brown, three different weekends on camera," Lively said. "So with that kind of attention to detail, you can imagine how it was in the world of Green Lantern."

(For those of you keeping a tally at home: Blake's brown-haired "Lantern" look is the third hair color she's been seen with this year -- and it's only June! She's rocked her usual blonde, of course, but she even did a stint as a redhead starting in April. In the photos of the "Green Lantern" press conference taken earlier this month, she was back to her traditional blonde 'do.)
