Dakota Johnson is a good sample of wispy bangs have made many of us consider going for a chop. Now, the actress-Dakota Johnson new and various hair colors are going to inspire your fall 2019 dye hair.
The Fifty Shades Darker premiere celebrated in Los Angeles and this is an occasion for which Dakota Johnson embraced switching up her look with a fresh new hair color that knocked her beauty game out of the proverbial park.
The ingenue-turned-box-office supernova exceeded expectations with a deep brunette dye job. Artfully blended extensions turned her shoulder-sweeping layers into a modern take on the French braid that was tugged apart just enough to add a little sexy, unstructured mussiness to the clean lines of her Valentino dress. From a look at the winning effect, there’s never been a better case for crossing into the dark side.
Spoiler: Brunette isn’t Dakota Johnson natural hair color!
As Melanie Griffith’s daughter, Dakota Johnson has had more than her fair share of time in the public eye. So, as you can imagine, she’s well-versed in how to impress on the red carpet. She's also had decades to find that perfect balance between having a signature look and always evolving her appearance to keep things fresh.
You may be surprised to learn that she hasn’t always been a mousy brunette with long hair. She used to own the rock blonde locks, regularly sways between wavy hair and dead-straight hairstyles, and has played around plenty with her hair length. But that fringe – it’s her thing and she’s sticking with it.
