Beyonce's Hair Color at Met Gala 2015

Beyoncé's Dress Wasn't the Only Thing That Was Nude

While we mere mortals spend time coordinating our tops with our bottoms or our shoes with our belts, goddess Beyoncé takes it a step further, matching her hair color with her dress.

Bey's go-to colorist, Rita Hazan, spruced up her locks for the Met Gala, indicating that the color of her hair was meant to accentuate the nude shades within the dress and to complement her skin tone.

"We went with the modern girl look who is blond, bold, and edgy," Hazan said. "The dress was such an amazing moment that her hair had to be on the same level. We went really blond with her color to match the nudeness of the dress to tie it all together."


To achieve the look, Hazan lifted Beyoncé's color two to three shades to a dark blond — something you should only do under the careful eye of a professional — then applied babylights to create dimension and contrast to her hair, so it wouldn't look flat in photos. As far as tones of blond, Hazan stayed in the natural shades to match Beyoncé's skin tone.

Granted, this might not be a trend just yet — but given how quickly "surfboardt" and "I woke up like this" became pop culture mainstays, we have a feeling people all over the world will be headed to their colorist to ask for "nude color" in the coming weeks.
