While there are no hard and fast rules for summer hair trends — you can rock anything from an autumnal auburn to an icy blue — Chrissy Teigen's strawberry blonde hair can make a person crave some classic summer vibes. With every passing week there seems to be a new hair color trend — from ocean hair to island sunset colors — but Teigen's new hair makes you get a whole new appreciation for the classic summer styles.
Teigen has been known to rock light brown hair with honey highlights for most of the time, so this reddish twist is a pretty drastic change for her — but with a new season comes an itch to shake things up! Teigen revealed her transformation on Twitter, with the simple caption of "New color." In it, she appears without makeup (looking flawless) and a hand to her mouth that says "Ohhh, look what I did!" We're treated to a photo of her with her pinkish blonde locks, matched with layered extensions that hit her around the waist. She's definitely giving off major mermaid vibes with her salon choices.
"The base color looks like a warm coppery blond with foils brightening up strands to a sunnier warm tone. It's almost unbelievable how much the shift in color brightens up her face — and it's the kind of long, dreamy summer hair that pairs perfectly with the beach and sunshine," Glamour reported.
Knowing that we would all be curious about her hair journey, she also posted highlights on her Snapchat, where she took us behind the scenes for the actual coloring. Using one of the black and white sunglasses filters, she snapped her stylist busy foiling her strands, painting on the pretty color. According to Glamour, the color was done by Liz Jung from L.A.'s Mèche Salon, and her usual stylist is the salon's owner, Tracey Cunningham.
You better believe this hair transformation will probably inspire a bunch of other people to book their own hair appointments to go the same warm, coppery shade. As Cosmopolitain reported, "Chrissy is a trend-setter in the vein of Regina George, but without the sociopathic tendencies."
Truer words have never been spoken.
