Lily James is a pro transformations. Unrecognizable in the series “Pam & Tommy” where she plays the role of Pamela Anderson with platinum blond hair and ultra-real breast prostheses, the actress quickly returned to the mocha brown, her natural hair color. Some time later, Lily James took the brown one step further by sporting a raven black mane and micro bangs for a Versace campaign. But for the summer, it looks like she’s gone back to a more sun-kissed hue by opting for a bright blonde. Directed by her colorist John MacPherson, the star documented the stages of her new transformation via the stories of her Instagram account.
Lily James’ buttery blonde
Inspired by the yellow and slightly golden color of butter, the “buttery blonde” is perfect for Lily James’ complexion. The colorist opted for an imperfect version leaving some of her brown roots showing. He ended up doing a slightly wavy brushing highlighting the star’s curtain bangs. While going from brown to blonde isn’t always easy because the bleaching process makes hair dry and brittle, many colorists use formulas such as Olaplexwhich help restore the hair fiber and reveal shiny hair despite discoloration.
