When I walked into Molly Sims's dressing room at a warehouse in Brooklyn in New York, I had to do a double take. From the back, it seemed like Jessica Chastain or Amy Adams was sitting in the chair. Molly had just undergone a major transformation, thanks to the work of Nexxus celebrity color expert Aura Friedman. For the first time in 10 years, Molly ditched her sun-kissed blond locks in favor of bright strawberry-red strands. It was hard for the megamodel to hide her enthusiasm over her new hair hue as she kept enthusiastically checking herself out in the mirror.
"I looked at her skin tone, hair color, and eyebrows," Friedman said of choosing Molly's red hue. "She has a lot of golden in her skin tone. I knew she would freak out if it was too dark. She's used to being a blonde. I thought it would be great to have the lightness and dimension that a blonde would have but with more copper and apricot-y tones."
As a hair-dye virgin, I had tons of questions for Molly about getting over going-red jitters, keeping the color from fading, and changing up your makeup routine to match your hair. Read on to see if redheads may just have more fun!
