Red is making its comeback — in a big way. Kids might get teased for their “ginger” locks, but everyone from Mandy Moore to Scarlett Johansson to Blake Lively has gone red this spring, making it the must-have color in Hollywood.
Of all the redheads we’ve seen popping up this season, the actress who plays Miss Serena van der Woodsen on Gossip Girl. definitely caused the biggest stir. For years, Blake Lively rocked supermodel blonde waves but recently she’s been photographed with a new auburn look. After the initial shock wore off amongst beauty bloggers and reporters, many have warmed up to this fun new share of “fire opal,” as coined by her stylist. To get Blake’s daring, fiery color, look to the “Mary J” wig. But don’t fret ladies; Blake will be back to blonde for her New York City scheming when the next season of Gossip Girl begins filming.
Our next two newly redheaded stars went a darker, more auburn route. Scarlett Johansson who has donned red locks for movie roles in the past, turned heads when she debuted her new look at the White House Correspondents Dinner. Mandy Moore on the other hand, while frequently transforming from blonde to brunette, has never tried red, so her new copper color is a fresh change for her. To get their looks, try out the “Electric” wig: it even mimics Scarlett’s chic bob length.
We’re not sure if the contagious red trend will outlast the summer season, but we’re sure enjoying all these transformations while they last!
