Press - VOGUE: JEMIMA KIRKE'S FIRST DYE JOB EVER IS PINK
The latest Girls actress to undergo a hair transformation (HBO costars Lena Dunham and Zosia Mamet have recently been spotted with platinum dye jobs), Jemima Kirke debuted her new pastel pink color at last night’s Metropolitan Opera season opening. The simultaneously romantic and subversive shade was made all the more daring because, according to Lena Ott, the colorist responsible for the rosey hue, “she’s never dyed her hair before.”
Inspired by **Kate Moss’**s pink dye job for the spring 1999 Versace runway, Kirke requested a fading color that would only get better as it washed out. With that in mind, Ott first highlighted the actress’s virgin honey-brown hair, then dyed her entire head with a custom blend of Manic Panic Cotton Candy Pink and Manic Panic Cleo Rose. “This way it fades almost naturally, with a soft line and the ends retaining the most color.”
Swept into an Old Hollywood deep side part and paired with a bright poppy lip, Kirke’s tumbling waves have us thinking pink.
