Some actresses are famous for their natural red hair, and made a career for themselves because of it. Others have made their careers for having red hair that is actually dyed in, often without most people actually knowing it. In this list we count down 7 actresses who rocked red hair from the bottle.
Can we please take a moment and appreciate the effort of these beautiful ladies in adopting and maintaining one of the most stunning colours in the world. Red hair is very loved in Hollywood, it changed careers for many of these actresses and we must admit, these ladies are wearing that ginger hair with pride!
The La La Land actress testifies her love for red hair even though she is naturally blonde.
“I like to dye my hair red. I’m not a redhead naturally, but you know I’m a great supporter. I love the red.”
Our favourite True Blood vampire started dying her red hair since her teenage years and loving it since.
“I’ve always been a loner, so I suppose dying my hair red was a way to say, ‘I’m here, I exist, I’m a human being, and you can’t just push me aside.'”
Deborah Ann Woll
“I think I will definitely stay a redhead, over the years I have dyed my hair every colour under the sun but red seems to really fit my skin tone and I like to be a bit unusual. When reading the Poldark scripts I was creating this feisty, sexy heroine in my head and I felt that red would be kind of fabulous. She’s untameable and in a sea of mainly brunettes, it was nice to have something that immediately packs a punch.”
We totally agree with you Eleanor, you should keep your red hair, you are looking beautiful!
Playing Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones was a huge commitment not only to the role but to a major red hair transformation.
“My red hair represents the most amazing period of my life,” Sophie has always been found in declaring her love for being a redhead.
Is one of the actresses that we basically accepted her as one of our own. Her stunning red hair changed her career in the best way possible as she says: “Based on roles that I was getting, called in for, people were responding to certain types of characters with me as a blonde and the minute I went red, it was quirky and fun instead of flirtatious and dumb.”
We all loved the redhead Miranda from Sex and The City and her gorgeous auburn hair. Cynthia always recognised how much she liked her red hair: “The recognition factor is so much higher when I’m a redhead, so when I’m a blonde I can pass under the radar a lot more easily”, she told Marie Claire of the shade, adding, “I like the red very much…I certainly feel like I look like myself in the poster and in the movie, but it’s a lot of work to maintain.”
The confidence is in the red hair and Christina is living proof of it!
‘I think being a redhead has encouraged me to be a bit more playful with my fashion, maybe be a little bit more quirky and eccentric even, so when I go out in the evening I like to play with colour and jewellery and it sort of compliments being a redhead.’
