A few days ago, Emma Roberts was twirling about town with her "1984 brunette" hair color, which she dyed specifically for the new season of American Horror Story. Its length fell firmly into lob territory. Now, the 28-year-old actress has done a complete 180: She just debuted ultra-long — as in Rapunzel-long — hair and a new honey-blonde hue to boot.
The AHS star's new look comes courtesy of none other than Nine Zero One's Nikki Lee, the stylist responsible for her previous brunette hue. Lee teamed up with Seama Eftekhari, who gave Roberts her plush extensions.
Lucky for everyone who's obsessing over Roberts's new look, Lee shared how she got the exact shade as well as why they decided on this color. "Emma is proving that not everything is going to be icy this winter — instead we’re keeping things warm," she said in a statement sent to Allure via email. "Since we knew we wanted to go long with her hair, we wanted to make sure the blonde wasn’t platinum-looking; keeping it this honey tone gives us a more natural and classic vibe for this holiday season," she explains.
As for the formula, Lee used Joico’s Blonde Life Lightener to lift the brown without damaging the hair. "Emma has been many colors for various roles, so keeping her hair healthy is always our first priority," says the colorist. "After her color correction from brunette to blonde, I treated her hair with In Common’s Crystal Cashmere in-salon treatment, which added nourishment and strength back into her hair and left it feeling soft and looking shiny," she adds. As for those Rapunzel vibes, Eftekhari used Great Lengths Extensions for a super-long and full effect. "We left her hair long and I added seamless layers and texture — we were thinking renaissance vibes," says Lee.
To maintain her color and hair health while traveling, Roberts will use Lee's In Common Magic Myst Mini. "After shooting AHS with short dark hair, this was the perfect switch to add brightness and sunshine in her life," Lee shares. We'll have to agree: Roberts's new color is really stunning.
