Zac Efron Now Has Platinum Blond Hair and a Beard

A new year, a new Zac Efron. We’re not even two weeks into 2019, and the actor has already let his followers know that he has dyed his hair platinum blond. Efron showed off the new hairstyle and his accompanying natural-hair-color beard, in a photo of himself in action at an indoor rock climbing place. “No Free Solo,” he wrote, without drawing extra attention to the blond locks peeking out from beneath his beanie.

No Free Solo

A post shared by Zac Efron (@zacefron) on

Efron’s latest hairstyle is a welcomed change from his recent ones. Back in July, Efron shared a photo of himself with a head full of dread locks. He shared a photo of his look with the caption, “Just for fun 🤘.” It didn’t take long for the comments section to fill up with notes about why it’s offensive that Efron, a white man, was wearing dreadlocks, a hairstyle that black people are often judged unfairly for having. One example of that is when Efron’s friend Zendaya wore dreadlocks to the 2015 Oscars, where television host Giuliana Rancic speculated that the actress and singer must “smell like patchouli oil.” At the time, Zendaya eloquently explained that “there is already harsh criticism of African American hair in society without the help of ignorant people who choose to judge others based on the curl of their hair.”

Hailey Baldwin Debuts Her New Pink Hair in Los Angeles

Less than a month after debuting her new bob on Instagram, Hailey Baldwin has thrown us for a loop once again, this time by stepping out with her brand new pink hair. The model debuted her bold new look in Los Angeles earlier this week, while on a stroll with her husband, Justin Bieber.

As ELLE points out, Baldwin has been known to switch up her signature blonde hair in favor of the bold pink look, as she did in May of last year, when she attended the Met Gala alongside Shawn Mendes.

This time around, Baldwin was far more casual, eschewing the bespoke Tommy Hilfiger gown she wore to the Met, for an oversized blazer, a cropped tank top, and neon Yeezy sneakers. Baldwin’s new look is almost certain have social media abuzz, but whether or not she sees the online reaction remains to be seen.

Late last year, Baldwin took to Instagram to reveal that she sometimes takes breaks from social media to help with her mental health. “Being off of Instagram is the best thing ever,” she wrote at the time. “Whenever I take breaks from it I feel so much better, so much happy as a person.. the second I come back on I get immediate anxiety, I get sad and I get worked up.”

Baldwin went on to explain that being on social media makes it “hard to focus” on her “well being and mental health,” amid all the negativity. “I just don’t believe we’re called to live a life where we’re so easily caught up in strangers opinions on something they have NOTHING to do with,” she added. “We need to take a step back and realize we need to express more love and encouragement to one another instead of consistently tearing people down and judging.”

For the Critics’ Choice Awards, the Dirty John star opted for shaggy beach hair that won over beauty fans. Hairstylist Creighton Bowman used Dove hair products including $5 Dove Invisible Dry Shampoo to give the hair more body. “To contrast the ultra-glam style of her green dress, we wanted to bring out another side of Connie and showcase her thick curly hair in a new way on the carpet,” he explained to E! News. Nailed it!

In addition to Mandy’s white hot Michael Kors dress, fans couldn’t get enough of the This Is Us star’s beauty look. Thanks to makeup artist and groomer Kindra Mann, Mandy’s eyes popped with Tom Ford Beauty Shadow Extreme. She combined fuchsia, red blue and deep purple on the outer corner and underneath the lash line. She later used a little bit of Charlotte TilburyLegendary Lashes Volume 2 mascara in black vinyl on top and bottom. She completed the eye look with Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base.

While perfecting the actress’ beauty look, Los Angeles makeup artist Patrick Ta wanted to create a chic but flirty play on old Hollywood glam. Between Shiseido’s ControlledChaos mascara (available this March) and Shiseido’s ModernMatte Powder Lipstick in the shade “Night Life,” we’d say he nailed it. “This look is so gorgeous on her,” Patrick shared with E! News.

Makeup artist Jo Baker wanted a “stark and dramatic bold statement lip” for the Hollywood actress. Maybelline’s SuperStay Matte Ink Un-Nude Liquid Lipstick was just the product. As for her total beauty look, Jo wanted to add a sharpness to each of Emmy’s features. “I made the brows more angular,” she explained. “I added some sculpting on her cheek bones alongside the dark lip and the liner-pinched eyes. This created a bold dramatic and fun look.”

After the actress’ fitting just a few days before showtime, hairstylist Aviva Perea and stylist Karla Welch agreed to do a “super curly disco hair.” So how did they do it? “Starting with wet hair, I coated America’s hair from root to ends with Oribe Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse,” Aviva explained to E! News. “Then using my Dyson dryer on low heat, I diffused her hair gently so not to break up her natural curl pattern. Then using a 3/8″ curling iron, I defined her curls to give them extra definition. I then sprayed her hair with Dove Dry Shampoo for volume and Elnett Hair Spray for shine and hold.”
