Dascha Polanco’s New Haircut and Color Is Dramatically Different
With NYFW fully underway, we’re mostly focused on the stunning garments featured in the runways shows, but those celebs in the front row are definitely also on our radar. At Jay Godfrey’s recent presentation, Orange Is the New Black star, Dascha Polanco was spotted rocking not just a new haircut, but a new cut AND color – and guys, it’s a definite must-see.
The actress ditched her long brunette locks for a blunt, banged bob that is rose gold! There is so much change happening our hairstyle-loving hearts can barely handle it. The new cut, which gives off a very Uma Thurman a la Pulp Fiction kind of vibe offers some solid inspiration to those ladies out there wanting to update their fall lobs. It definitely takes some guts to go for this drastic of a change, but this isn’t Dascha’s first time in the rainbow-haired ring. She’s previously rocked a gray ombré color as well as a magenta ‘do.
Dascha’s new look is courtesy of celebrity stylist Cynthia Alvarez, who is also responsible for Polanco’s past pink and gray locks. Alvarez says “we wanted to do something completely different from her previous hair looks that is also on trend for fashion week. We decided that bangs + bob + rose gold were IT! All three of those are trending for fall plus they are super complementary on Dascha.”
In a note from PRAVANA, Alvarez mentions, “What I love the most about this color is it can change tones depending on the type of lighting. In natural light, it reads rose gold. In dark spaces, it looks copper-ish. And in bright lighting, it reads peachy.” Is this opal hair 2.0? Seems like it just might be.
