The trend of vibrant red hair has taken the celebrity world by storm, and Dua Lipa is the latest star to embrace this fiery hue. Joining the likes of Megan Fox, Malia Obama, and Billie Eilish (who notably added a touch of red to her roots), Lipa has recently showcased her stunning transformation into a bold red shade.
Images of Lipa flaunting her new hair color first emerged in late October, just in time for Halloween. The singer was then seen in early November leaving the Global Radio Studios in London, sporting her luxurious, wavy locks dyed in a rich merlot tone. This appearance confirmed that her red hair was more than a fleeting whim. Adding a unique twist to her look, Lipa incorporated several delicate braids within her hair and complemented her fiery tresses with chic red knee-high boots. As red emerges as the season’s most sought-after color, its influence is becoming increasingly apparent in the realms of beauty and fashion.
This foray into the world of red hair isn’t new for Lipa. She previously experimented with a vivid cherry-red shade for her 2021 Versace autumn/winter campaign. Initially, onlookers speculated it was a wig, but Donatella Versace later clarified in a WWD interview that Lipa had indeed dyed her hair for the shoot. Versace shared, “She also trusted me when I asked her, she did not hesitate [to dye her hair].”
Prior to this, during lockdown, Lipa dabbled with a two-tone hairdo, incorporating strawberry red into her naturally dark hair. However, it was her striking cherry-red hair combined with lengthy extensions and bold, blunt bangs that marked her most dramatic hair transformation to date. As Versace aptly put it, “Fiery red is a symbol of passion and strength,” – qualities that Lipa exudes. Take a closer look at the times Dua Lipa has boldly embraced the allure of red hair.
