CHRISTINA HENDRICKS’ FUN FACT: SHE’S A NATURAL BLONDE
She looks ravishing with red hair, but CHRISTINA HENDRICKS has a secret: that’s not her real hair colour.
“Yes, the rumours are true — I’m naturally a dark blonde,” she revealed to ELLE.com.
“I couldn’t tell you what shade because I haven’t seen it in ages.”
That’s because CHRISTINA’S quest for auburn locks began quite some time ago.
“I started playing with red hair when I was 10 years old. I recognize how odd it is now, but my mom let me do it. I was obsessed with Anne Of Green Gables and Ginger of Gilligan’s Island…and lusted for that red hair.”
And even though she was just a kid, CHRISTINA got exactly what she wanted.
“My mom said, ‘Well, let’s throw a rinse on it,’ and the next day, my teachers asked what had happened when I arrived at school with red hair.”
But it wasn’t just red that the actor was experimenting with; she tried several colours of the rainbow before settling on her current hue.
“In high school, I started experimenting with permanent colour. My mom nearly cried one day when I came down the stairs in jet black hair. I got purple, pink and black out of my system during those years.”
