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?

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