Julia Roberts Debuts Spiced Copper Hair at the Critics Choice Awards — See the Photos

Must read

Julia Roberts is throwing it back to her Pretty Woman days with a fresh, new hair color. The actor and rom-com star hit the red carpet for the Critics Choice Awards on January 15 with her hair styled in loose, spiced copper-red waves. The color is similar to the rich auburn brown she had been rocking but bumped up a few steps to add a beautiful warmth and vibrance to her look. 

It really brings out her hazel eyes. Seriously, I can’t stop staring at how they pop against the red. You could tell me this was Pretty Woman‘s Vivian Ward all glammed up for an event with Edward and I’d believe you.

Roberts has been a redhead many times, most notably in the early days of her career, and it’s fun to see her return to the shade. She paired the copper waves with a peachy-pink blush and matching lip color, a subtle eye, and lush, dark lashes for a pretty, classic makeup look that would have been right at home on ’90s Julia, too. (And given Roberts has been working with Lancôme for more than a decade, we’d bet she’s wearing a full face of the French cosmetics brand.) The new hair color was the perfect match for her glamorous black Schiaparelli gown with glimmering metallic sequins.

Copper hair colors continue to be one of the biggest beauty trends, in part because it’s so easy to customize to your look and your color comfort level. You can tiptoe into the hue with just a hint of strawberry blonde or go full-on bright orange-red. Roberts tends to stick to warm-toned shades, experimenting with a brunette bob with bangs, a light blonde, and a gorgeous rose gold. She’s even gone copper before, revisiting her Vivian-era red back in 2017. Is there any color Roberts can’t wear?
