The 24-year-old supermodel had the internet talking not long after arriving to Monday night's CFDA Fashion Awards in New York. While most fans and haters alike were debating her ensemble (the jury is still out on the sash, pants, and pleated skirt combo), we were busy ogling her new hair color.
The new color, an ombré set of blonde balayage highlights, is a major change of pace for Hadid. For the last year, she's progressively dyed her hair darker and darker, to match the warmer natural color at her roots; in fact, we haven't seen Hadid this blonde since 2017. Everyone – even Beyoncé — seemingly went from blonde to brunette in spring, but in the past month or so, a few celebrities have ditched their old hair color for blonder highlights that brighten the ends of the hair, not the roots.
From the looks of it, the ombré color trend is officially back, and Hadid is just the latest star to usher it back into salons. After blowing up a few years ago, the low-maintenance color technique's popularity simmered right about the time everyone — and we mean everyone — was bleaching their roots and going platinum blonde. Now, it looks like the tides are changing, and we're back to the ultimate lazy-girl color for summer. Although it's likely some of Hadid's brighter pieces are thanks to a few clip-in hair extensions, courtesy of hairstylist Danielle Priano, we think Hadid's new look is worth screenshotting and bringing to your colorist ASAP.
