Ulyana Sergeenko answered the question of how she would be dealing with the grow-out from the platinum-blonde dye job she debuted in January with a simple Instagram this afternoon—and then another courtesy of her fellow fashion comrade Elena Perminova. The answer: She wouldn’t. The Russian street-style-star-turned-designer is back to brunette after cutting off her flaxen strands entirely and embracing one of Guido Palau’s midcentury Dior Couture pixie cuts instead. And you know what? It looks great on her. The gamine look isn’t all that easy to pull off, but Sergeenko is managing it just fine, as far as we’re concerned. Add another one to the season’s short-hair handbook. Thoughts on her drastic trim?
After Fall’s all-out embrace of “dark glamour,” which resulted in a sweeping mass of Lisbeth Salander-inspired severe brunette dye jobs, it really was only a matter of time before the hair-color pendulum swung back in the other direction. And so it started to swing for Spring, first on the runway at Marc Jacobs, where a crop of models were given Edie Sedgwick-style peroxide treatments, then on the red carpet, as boldfaced names like Natalie Portman, Emma Stone, and Emily Blunt all cashed in their brunette and auburn strands for shades of gold. “Wintertime is normally when people go darker, but I’m seeing the opposite this year, people going lighter,” confirmed celebrity colorist Tracey Cunningham last month when we asked her to weigh in on the nascent trend—a trend, it should be pointed out, that has not gone unnoticed by the Russian style set. As the couture shows trudge on through the Paris snow, it appears as though Ulyana Sergeenko has taken her light brown locks a shade of warm flaxen, while Elena Perminova has opted to boost her already sunny strands with a shock of bleach. Thoughts on their winter white blonde transformations?
