Bazaar cover girl Salma Hayek rocked pink locks at the Women in Motion awards dinner, as part of the 70th Cannes Film Festival, on Sunday night. The pastel pink hue matched the floral appliqués on her Gucci gown, and were styled into Marilyn-esque curls.
Hairstylist Jennifer Yepez shared a photo on Instagram, showing the Frida star posing in her wig before heading to the event. "I styled the wig with Honest Beauty Moisture Milk Leave-in Conditioner and Uplifted Volumizing Spray,” she told to Allure. “I then used a medium round brush to blow dry it smooth, before using a one inch curling iron on medium sections of hair about 2 inches wide. I wrapped the hair from root to end, and pinned the curl to allow it to set after."
Aura Friedma, the colourist behind the rose gold hue, added, "I used Wella Color Touch which is a semi-permanent hair color (often used as a gloss or toner) to make a pink tone. I then added a darker cool blonde shadow at the root to make it natural-looking.”
Following in the footsteps of Helen Mirren circa 2013 and Kylie Jenner, who are both known for unveiling bubblegum pink tresses on the red carpet, this an adventurous beauty feat for the Oscar-winning actress, whose hair colour has only ever fluctuated from dark brown to slightly less dark brown in the past. Although Hayek was spotted out the next day back to her usual chestnut brown, Bazaar hopes to see more colourful hair in the future.
We’ll be waiting!
