It was the weekend of celebrity hair transformations: Rihanna went blond, and now, Hailey Baldwin is ending the year by taking her newly dyed rose gold locks to the dark side. The model shared her new brunette 'do on Instagram with a couple photos, which also showed off her new fringe bangs. We might be used to seeing Baldwin rocking light hair, but this isn't the first time she has gone au naturel.
Her colorist, Ryan Pearl of NYC's Cutler Salon, tells Mane Addicts that she went dark for the Met Gala back in 2015 and that embracing her natural roots is good for a number of reasons: "I love the way it brightens up her skin tone and eye color. It’s also a lot more low maintenance for her hectic lifestyle." Pearl achieved the rich tones by gradually darkening Baldwin's locks with filler and toners. He balanced the 20-year-old's deep shade with natural-looking, hand-painted highlights and finished with a glaze for a beautiful shine.
