Eva Green loves extreme shades when it comes to her hair.
The former Bond girl is known for her striking looks and raven hair. Her natural colour is actually dark blonde which the 35-year-old has always found dull so she likes to experiment – but has had some mishaps along the way.
“I’ve dyed my hair black since I was 15. One of my mum’s friends had very dark hair and blue eyes and I just thought, ‘OK, I have to try it!'” she told British InStyle. “I felt more like myself after I made the colour change. I love extreme shades – I’ve been dark blue, a dark brown and even red at one point. That was a challenging shade because it eventually went green!”
One colour Eva would love to try is bright blonde. But just like Kim Kardashian, who had to give up her platinum locks after only a few weeks earlier this year, the actress thinks it would be too much strain on her tresses.
“I’ve done movies with a blonde wig and I’d love to go blonde. But colourists say it would destroy my hair because of how much I’d have to bleach it,” she explained. “My hair got very damaged because it’s super straight and I always use tongs to give it texture. I’ve just had the new L’Oréal Professionel Pro Fibre Revive in-salon treatment – it makes your hair shiny and healthy.”
Eva likes to be experimental when it comes to her make-up looks too, although it wasn’t always the case.
“I was shy until I was 16 and started at the American School of Paris. It was a chance to be a new me,” she said. “I had new black hair and would match my eyeshadow with my clothes so I’d wear purple or green. It was very theatrical.”
