Jennifer Lawrence’s Hair Color Evolution


Whether she’s blond, brunette, or even red, Jennifer Lawrence continues to give us major hair inspo. But, while some looks had us running to the salon to copy them, others didn’t wow us. Here, we sat down with hair color expert Kate Reid, director of education for COLOR.ME North America, to see which looks worked—and those that didn’t.

1 / 8

Icy Blond

“Jen’s latest shade, icy blond, is executed to perfection, creating a bold and edgy rocker vibe. This steely tone is high-maintenance, so it is not one of my favorites. But, she always manages to balance her look well through styling and makeup.”

Dirty Blond

“Those eyes! These cool caramels with a soft edge deliver a flattering and favorable shade for Jen. In this natural shade, she can truly wake up and run to the coffee shop sans makeup no problem. I really like this type of blond for a lower-maintenance, chic look.”

“Cooler warm shades suit Jen nicely, however, red and copper are too warm for Jennifer. This shade requires a full face of makeup at all times (like the red lip) to make it work. Red ages her a bit too, as it exposes pigmentation and is too high maintenance for every day.”

Sandy Blond

“Sandy blond is a shade that really allows Jen’s skin to glow. The soft warmth of the shade and the understated freehand application of highlights delivers a beautiful, natural finish.”

5 / 8

Dark Brown With Highlights

“With her fair skin, this deep shade is a bit overwhelming for her complexion. On the upside, the dark hue really draws out her eyes, making them absolutely irresistible. It’s best to avoid dark shades with light skin like Jennifer’s unless you want to always wear a bright lip or deep, dark eye makeup to balance the look.” 

6 / 8

Platinum Blond

“This beautiful, neutral color accentuates Jennifer’s porcelain skin for a look that is fresh and wearable. The platinum blond shade suits her cooler skin tones and blue eyes, and her makeup really works with this look. The pink cheek adds a warm, radiant, healthy-looking glow.” 

7 / 8

Caramel Blond

“This caramel is too warm and too solid, which really washes Jen out. To make her features pop and her skin look softer, she should stick with cooler shades in either a light depth or variations of soft warmer shades, as these are all too similar to her skin tone.” 

8 / 8

Blond With Lowlights and Dark Roots

“Deep roots make her eyes pop and the soft, natural, warm blond helps to create an effortless, beautiful glow. Definitely my go-to choice for Jen.”
