    Blonde/Brunette

    I've read a sentence like: "She is a brunette". / "She is a blonde."
    In this case, the words "blonde"and "brunette"are nouns, right?

    If I want to use "brunette"and "blonde"like adjectives, then I don't use the article. Am I right?

    By the way, how can I say: "Ele é moreno"?

    Thanks.

    Yes, the article for a noun form and none for the adjective, but also keep in mind that these are the traditional feminine forms; the masculine forms are 'blond' and 'brunet'.

    Sorry, I don't speak-- Italian?

    It's Portuguese, Mister Micawber.

    Ele é moreno. = He is dark. Swarthy and dark-skinned also work.

    Pardon my ignorance, Susie and Emanuélli. At least I knew it wasn't Spanish...
