When you picture Charlize Theron in your mind’s eye, there’s a solid chance you visualize her with long, silky blonde hair (possibly dripping in gold, like in her J’Adore® Dior® commercial). After all, those platinum locks are part of her signature look. But for her turn presenting at the Academy Awards®, she completely transformed from a blonde bombshell to a brunette babe.
According to her longtime hairstylist, Adir Abergel, he switched up Theron’s shade to a deep chocolate this week with the help of celebrity colorist Tracey Cunningham. As for the bob, Abergel and Theron decided to “chop it all off” as they got ready for the Oscars® red carpet. To create the sleek coif, Abergel used Virtue LabsTM; Un-Frizz Cream ($40) to prep her strands before styling it with the ghd® platinum+ styler ($249).
Of course, Theron’s stunning makeup added even more sizzle to her new look. Celebrity makeup artist Kate Lee kept things on the subdued side. Lee’s pared-down beauty masterpiece included a dramatic, feathered brow, glowing skin, and a striking orange-red lip that contrasted beautifully with Theron’s cadet blue gown. The artist used Dior Addict® Stellar ShineTM; #639 Riviera StarTM;, which launches on March 1, to create the pout. The result: a show-stopping beauty look fit for red carpet royalty.
