Iconic American actor Julia Roberts has had an array of hair colors over the years, and she seems to bounce back and forth quite frequently between blonde and brunette shades (and looks completely beautiful no matter what the hue). Of course, however, her most iconic hair color is that nostalgia-inducing fiery red hue she rocked during her Pretty Woman days, a.k.a. the early ’90s — and it looks like she’s now bringing it back, more than two decades later.
As noted by Vogue, Julia was spotted in New York City this week with a bright, coppery hair color while filming her upcoming movie, Ben Is Back. As for the style, the actor kept things casual with a side-part and choppy layers, and the auburn highlights looked super-shimmery in the natural light outside. The color even looked amazing with Julia’s street clothes and sunnies, so I’m willing to bet it would look extra-dynamic in a fancy updo paired with a gown for the red carpet. Or, y’know, with a dress like that one worn by Vivian Ward in the classic movie.
Of course, it remains to be seen whether or not Julia will keep the look for the upcoming award shows or if it’s strictly for her new film, but here’s hoping she takes more photos of the auburn shade over the next few weeks — especially for those of us who are contemplating a new hue for the new year. Julia’s sunset-colored hair could definitely inspire fans to reach for the red dye. Hey, I know I’m itching to make an appointment right now.
