He did have goldy locks in the older stuff but in the Late Silmarillion he is called "Celegorm the fair". Fair can be for hair (=blond), for skin or just mean "beautiful". As his brother is named "Caranthir the dark" because of his skin color I'll say that's the same for Celegorm. ;)

I have understood that Caranthir was nicknamed "The dark" because he have a very bitter character

Then Celegorm would be named "the fair" cause of his strong sense of justice ? Like when he is abandonning children in the forest ? :p But I just realised that "Caranthir the dark" is a little more complicated and may rely to hair too, check wikipedia :

I understand this whole debate, but that is thing of the interpretation of the fans.
I also read the Silmarillion, but with a different interpretation in my language, so in that respect he was dark haired for me.
On the other hand, FŽanor was also very jealous of his noldor purity, your sons of red hair have this hair inherited from Nerdanel, but where could inherit blond hair Celegorm?

AFAIK "fair" could also refer to silver hair. We know FŽanor's mother had silver hair.

It's written in the Silmarillion that Miriel had silver hair. Celegorm's hair is not mentioned, but he has silver hair in my headcanon.

You read the spanish translation ? Is it a good one in your opinion ? :) I'm French and while the Lord of the Rings' isn't bad the Silmarilion's is just awful (not only it's bad but sometimes the traducer even mispelled names or, worst, forgot some words or sentences --' ).

But yeah what I was mentionning is not exaclty interpretation but different versions of Tolkien's writings, he doesn't always agreed with himself. But I agree with your argument on Feanorian's purity, that will be pretty odd to have Celegorm with golden hair, not mentionning that Finarfin's kin (and Idril and Glorfindel) are supposed to be the only Noldor with golden hair.
Anyway, this all debate about hair color is funny, but sometimes it takes enormous proportions and I'm not wanting to be pickier than I already was. :D
