Chrissy Teigen Fast-Forwarded to Fall With This Spicy Ginger Hair Color
Chrissy Teigen is spicing up her life. The model decided to skip the summery blonde in favor of a warm, rich ginger red instead. She shared her updated hue on Instagram with a short video of the finished product. “Breaking news: woman gets new hair color!!!!!!!!!” she wrote, tagging colorist Matt Rez, who crafted the spicy shade. Teigen was previously brunette, with dark roots and lighter, caramel brown midlengths to ends, but she's now firmly on Team Redhead. The color is like a 2023 version of Ginger Spice's signature deep red with lighter money pieces; Teigen's base color is a classic auburn with a slightly darker smudged root, plus a few strategically placed strawberry highlights to frame her face and add brightness.
To finish off the transformation, stylist Rikke Gajda gave Teigan a smooth blowout with a slight ’90s vibe and makeup artist Kristine Studden glammed up the mom of three with a warm peach blush, full brows, and a glossy rose lip. Teigen and husband John Legend welcomed their third child, baby daughter Esti, in January, so it makes sense that the new mom would be ready for a little much-deserved pampering.
While we usually think of red hair as a fall color, spicy copper colors are trending with celebrities; Julia Roberts channeled her Pretty Woman character Vivian with a refreshed red at the Critics Choice Awards, and Eva Mendes also went red during the holidays to change things up. Red is one of the most versatile colors; there's a flattering choice for every skin tone and it can be as subtle as a hint of warm copper or as intense as full-on bright cherry cola red. Chrissy Teigen's dimensional auburn has me questioning everything I thought I knew about color trends…and considering dialing my colorist for a similar look.
