Bella Hadid Used Glitter to Go Blonde and the Result is Gorgeous
Bella Hadid’s brunette locks are pretty much her calling card, so we had to do a double take when she walked down the runway in Paris at the Maison Margiela couture fashion show Wednesday as a BLONDE. The model took a page from her sister Gigi Hadid’s book and went almost completely incognito in a flaxen bob. But get this, she didn’t opt for a wig or dye job — this hairstyle was created entirely with glitter.
To achieve the golden (literally) locks, hairstylist Eugene Souleiman painted a thick layer of gold glitter from root to tip. You can even see her dark strands peeking out from underneath. Talk about a real wet hair look.

Ironically, while we all know the supermodel as a brunette, she’s actually a natural blonde who changed her hair color to differentiate herself from Gigi. “I just have a darker personality. And my sister being blonde and me being brunette, it’s a good separation,” she told Allure back in 2016. So this glimmering look is actually closer to her real hair color.
In this instance, Bella’s gleaming hair coordinated perfectly with the gold collar and boots she was modeling, but glitter as hair dye? Sounds like it’s an option better saved for the runways.
Would you wear Bella’s glittery look? Tell us what you think @BritandCo!
