Eminem’s iconic platinum blonde hair was used as a marketing ploy for his persona Slim Shady. Decades later and the effects can still be felt as many fans today are unaware of his natural hair colour . Our Eminem hair editorial covers this.



Eminem Hair Type

From the image below we can see Eminem has type 1 straight hair which is easily identified since there is no curl pattern.

Type 1 Straight hair also varies in thickness and falls into different categories, thin, medium and coarse. Taking a quick glance we can see Eminem hair texture scales towards the thin side.


What is Eminem’s Natural hair Colour?

Ems natural hair colour is dark brunette. Throughout the majority of his childhood photos online we can see Eminem in brunette hair.

During his rise to fame in the 90s selling millions of albums he has left a lasting impression amongst fans globally and this is evident by a great percentage of fans still posing the question “Is Eminem naturally blonde?” No! Eminem is a brunette.

Today however he makes most of his public appearances in his dyed black hair.

Dark Black Buzz Cut (Current)

Throughout his career Em has kept his hairstyles relatively low and simple. Which is no surprise his current hairstyle has been short black and easy to manage.

Never styled outside his signature buzz cut look or dyed in a variety of colours Em ensures to keep a clean professional look which blends into his beard.



Platinum Blonde (Slim Shady Era)

During Em’s peak years we saw the rise of his alter ego Slim Shady who kept his hair blonde whilst wearing a plain t shirt and rapped about controversial topics.

This era made Eminem a star and something that most people remember by the colour of his hair.

The slim shady era lasted from around 1997 – 2006. He would then re dye his hair blonde in 2013
