For a certain kind of girl, ringing in the sunny season is as simple as a brand-new dye job. And we’re not just talking about adding a few face-framing sun-kissed streaks—because when done right, a bold color tweak is the beauty equivalent of a freshly stocked summer wardrobe.
Case in point: Brie Larson shot to fame with a pitch-perfect dirty blonde hue, but her Titian makeover earlier this month leaves no doubt that there’s more than one knockout hair color for everyone. Amal Clooney might agree: As it turns out, the significantly warmed-up shade of brunette she stepped out with at Cannes is just as well-suited to a bright red lip as her signature obsidian mane.
Emma Roberts, who had a scene-stealing run as an almost-platinum blonde, is now a dead ringer for her aunt Julia Roberts in her Pretty Woman days, thanks to her recently adopted fiery auburn color. As for the damage that a radical dye job can do to an otherwise healthy head of hair—what about it? If Emma Stone, Rooney Mara, and Kristen Stewart are any indication, in the right professional hands, even a rich brunette can be lifted to a bright white blonde shade that requires little more than weekly deep-conditioning love.
Here, seven reasons to let your colorist have a little fun.
