If blonds have more fun, Hollywood must be having a great time this summer: Sophie Turner, Karlie Kloss, Emma Stone, and Taylor Swift (even if it was short-lived)—among many, many other A-listers—have joined in on the platinum-hair trend.
And although each girl tends to take a different spin on the shade—from a retro, ready-for-red-lipstick tone to a sportier look a la Kristen Stewart—we haven’t seen someone walk the edgy-polished line quite like Kate Mara, who traded in her cool dark pixie cut she’s been growing out for the past several months. Now, she’s majorly transformed her hair with a white-blond platinum bob.
She was spotted leaving hairstylist Mara Roszak’s West Hollywood salon, Mare, with the new color. Rosnak is also responsible for Emma Stone’s cool cut and Cara Delevigne’s choppy lob. Needless to say, with the ultra-dramatic color lift the change undoubtedly involved, she was in good hands.
We’re loving the way it shines in the sun and looks effortlessly sleek and edgy all at once. And, with a simple change of clothes or swipe of makeup, she could work a whole different attitude with her look. It’s basically perfect for girls who like to play up different sides of their personality from day to day.
Love it? If you’re considering trying platinum on for size, make sure you’re ready to commit. Stewart’s colorist Marie Robinson (the queen of platinum blond) has a few tips for nailing the look. And of course it’s important to stock up on the best products to keep your newly bleached hair healthy and shiny—for that, take a page from Stone’s book.
