We're used to seeing Emma Watson in her trademark honey brown hair ever since her Harry Potter days, but Emma just recently made a bold move of swapping her light brown tresses to a much darker, almost black shade, and it's absolutely gorgeous!

While we love our balayages and ombré, Emma's latest hair swap make us want to go dark, too! And just in case Emma’s new 'do wasn't enough to convince you to do the same, we're leaving you with five more reasons why you should go to the dark side, STAT.

It's a classic color!

Some girls think that dark hair is plain and boring, but we say, dark hair is a classic color that's extremely versatile, too! If blondes and redheads have to worry if the color of their OOTD would clash with their 'do, dark-haired gals don't have to!

It hides hair damage with a breeze.

Darker hair tends to be more forgiving when it comes to damaged hair compared to lighter locks. So, if you're prone to getting split ends, or have frizzy hair, you can be sure that dark tresses will help you hide those bad hair days without breaking a sweat.

Dark hair looks thicker.

The options are limitless.

Dark hair is often associated to black hair only, but there's more to dark tresses than just the color black, Candy Girls! Just like your favorite blondes, browns, and reds, there are fifty shades of dark hair colors you can play with. So, go wild!

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
