Cate Blanchett dyes her hair pink

And manages to pull it off brilliantly

Beauty Crew Editor / May 25 2017

This week Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett proved that there’s no such thing as an age limit when it comes to dying your hair a crazy colour. 

Wandering the streets of London, the Australian beauty was spotted with a new pink colour to her usually-blonde ‘do.

Speaking to the UK’s The Telegraph, Blanchett’s hair colourist, Nicola Clarke, revealed this colour change wasn’t an impulsive decision, but rather something they’d been discussing for a while. 

“We've been talking about doing it for a while but wanted to get all the award seasons out of the way to have a play and a bit of fun. It will last a couple of weeks, depending on how many washes it has.” 

The look takes us back to February 2013, when Dame Helen Mirren walked the red carpet debuting this fabulous pink pixie cut.

While pink has become a big trend in recent months, time will tell if Cate’s colour change will spark a new wave of rainbow-coloured locks for both younger and older women.
