Christina Hendricks is arguably the most famous redhead in Hollywood, but that wasn’t always the case. She started her career as a blonde — until she nabbed a fateful modeling gig at 19. “Clairol took me red, and I was absolutely thrilled. I loved it so much, I still actually have the picture from the shoot,” she says. “I went back to my agency and said ‘I’m staying red, this it it, I love it.’ And they let me!”
And once she landed her role as Joan on Mad Men, fans everywhere started begging their stylists for Hendricks’s hair color. But as it turns out, she still gets it herself at home with Nice ‘n Easy “6R Natural Light Auburn.” Which is why it makes sense that, 20 years after she was a face of Miss Clairol, the brand’s tapping her again for their new ad campaigns.
