As much as Megan Fox has been known to switch up her hair color with a fun wig, she’s practically the spokesperson for the stunning combination of dark hair and light eyes. So it may come as a surprise to you just how completely right she looks with her new — and apparently actually dyed, not-a-wig — red hair.
Yes, Fox has dabbled in red hair hair before, like the extra-long, vibrant auburn wig she wore last October. But this time around, it seems like she’s made a long-term commitment to the Jessica Rabbit look with the help of stylist Dimitris Giannetos, who said his inspiration for the look is another animated character, the Little Mermaid.
She debuted the beautiful new shade at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party. “Megan is revealing her new hair tonight, which is coppery red and a shorter length,” Giannetos said in an email, though it’s by no means short — Fox’s hair still extends well past her shoulders. “She’s wearing a beautiful black gown, so we wanted the hair to look very effortless and modern.”
And he definitely succeeded with three key Unite hair products. “I started by using Unite’s Elevate Mousse in towel-dried hair in order to give some body and lift the roots of the hair. I then blow-dried the hair in small sections using a round brush. Once dry, I used some Texturiza Spray to maintain the volume and fullness,” Giannetos shared. “To finish, I sprayed with my favorite Go365 Hairspray so the hair can last all night at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party.”
Fox showed off the new look while posing with a number of other guests, including Billie Eilish, who’s currently carrying the dark-hair-light-eyes torch for Fox while she enjoys being a ginger.
