Press - VOGUE: DREE HEMINGWAY TAKES THE BRUNETTE PLUNGE: HOW TO WARM UP WINTER SKIN WITH A DEEPER HAIR COLOR

After spotting Dree Hemingway on Instagram today with freshly dyed chestnut hair, we had to wonder: Did the perennial golden girl plan to mark her 27th birthday with a dramatic above-the-neck transformation?

“It’s not like she woke up one day and said, ‘I want to be a brunette!’” colorist Lena Ott, owner of Suite Caroline salon in New York City, says of taking the model-actress’s flaxen hair several shades darker for an upcoming film role. To create the perfect shade for Hemingway’s fair skin, Ott applied a pearly medium-toned dye over Hemingway’s sunny highlights for a “cool gold brown” hue with no hint of copper and plenty of light-catching dimension.

While Hemingway’s new look made us do a double take, the real appeal of her deeper color was quite subtle. Contrary to popular belief, blonde hair can wash out pale skin, says Ott, while a dark shade gives the impression of a healthy glow. “The biggest change was how warm her skin looked.” Consider us sold.
