Salma Hayek Pinault Is Welcoming Summer With a New Hair Color

It’s been a full three months since the salon was ordered to close due to the coronavirus.

Sure, there were root dressing products, hair coloring tools and a whole lot of hair accessories to support you while the salon was closed, but no DIY root cover-up can match the expert craftsmanship of your favorite hair colorist.

Now that salons across the country are slowly reopening, we’re all reuniting with our stylists, including celebrities like Salma Hayek Pinot.

The award-winning actress and producer debuted the refreshing summer hair color on Instagram with a before-and-after collage. In the before photo, Hayek Pinault proudly showed off her overgrown gray roots. In the after photo, she went for a glamorous fluffy blowout with soft caramel highlights.

“In anticipation of the remake, I finally had to do my roots,” she wrote on her post.

While adding gold highlights to a darker base like Hayek Pinault’s might be extreme, the actress’ subtle caramel highlights are perfect for summer. The overall warmth of her new hair color is reminiscent of prime time, when everything – including your hair and skin tone – looks like it’s glowing under an Instagram filter in the short time before or shortly after sunrise on a summer day.

While Hayek Pinault’s hair swap is a practical one, it’s enough to sway anyone who’s been hesitant to make an appointment at a post-quarantine salon.
