Just a few months ago, we watched half of Holloywood turn platinum blond before our eyes. (Maybe not half. But, you know.) But when winter settles in, hair shades traditionally get richer. And Emma Watson—aka Princess Belle—has gone increasingly dark throughout the fall.
Looking back to September, Emma had a light, nearly rose-gold color at the HeForShe 2nd Anniversary Reception in New York.
By Halloween, Emma showed off darker streaks—and an amazingly spooky Dior dress—at The Harper's Bazaar Women of the Year Awards in London.
By the time she stepped out to A Tribute to Tom Hanks at the Museum of Modern Art earlier this week, she had a rich, chestnut shade of brown hair. Emma also gave visibility to a rising designer, wearing a black velvet dress by KITX by Kit Willow, an Australian brand.
"I love that Emma’s look is a darker, cooler tone with hints of mahogany," said Taylor Sellers, a master hair designer at Salon 124 in Georgia and a Keune national educator. "It looks dramatic but still so natural because of the way the color is placed around her face." Sellers added that the tone is also easier to maintain than the icy blonde hair we've seen on other celebs—but that doesn't mean the trend is going anywhere. "Blondes love to be blonde, and cool, icy, white tones will continue to be on trend well into spring and summer," he predicted. "It’s a striking fashion statement for the woman who wants to stand out—and is willing to commit to the maintenance that will maintain her color and keep her hair healthy."
