For as long as contemporary hair-dyeing technology has been available, there have been high-contrast hair-color trends. Y2K chunky highlights, dip-dye ombré, money pieces that frame the face — there’s something timelessly appealing about wanting to be blonde and brunette at the same time. But while these trends are often associated with beauty-capricious twenty-somethings, Charlize Theron just proved that a two-tone look can read more like a classic than a craze.

On Wednesday, October 25, Theron attended The Hollywood Reporter’s Beauty Dinner, celebrating celebrity’s glam squads. She was flanked by her go-to beauty team, including makeup artist Kate Lee, nail artist Tom Bachik, and her two hair geniuses, stylist Adir Abergel and colorist Tracey Cunningham. The Oscar winner’s middle-parted lob was pulled half-back, with the lower layer of hair flipping out in the back and a few strands casually yet elegantly tucked behind her ears. 

But while Theron’s hair has been looking like a blended bronde lately, at this event, it was looking decidedly blonde and brunette via high-contrast sections. Blondest up front, Theron’s hair has significant sections of brown, which becomes especially dark in the back. She’s allowing her medium-brown roots to grow in, even letting a few silver strands shine through.
