Christina Hendricks has been a ginger bombshell for as long as… well, for as long as we’ve given a shit about her, frankly. She made her name as Joan Holloway, the busty redhead with a major ‘tude on Mad Men, and that’s just how we’re used to her. So what do we think now that she’s a blonde?
We should note, this isn’t really a major change for Christina herself, since she grew up blonde and only dyed her hair red after becoming obsessed with Anne of Green Gables:
“Growing up, I was light blonde, but my mother used Clairol to make me a redhead when I was 10 because I was dying to be Anne of Green Gables,” the star, married to Geoffrey Arend since 2009, told Marie Claire. “When she finished, I felt this burst of energy, like, ‘Ah! I’m finally me!’ — which is a pretty funny sentiment for a 10-year-old.”
Now that Christina’s a Clairol spokeswoman, she’s returning to her roots, so to speak, with the blonde dye. I feel like this won’t last long, but here we are for now.
What do you think of the new ‘do?
