Elle Fanning debuts a bold new hair colour

We wouldn’t be surprised if this sparks a trend

Elle Fanning is the poster girl for the ‘girl next door’ look. She’s always embraced her natural beauty and stayed true to her young age by never going too OTT or heavy with her beauty look. But every teen has to rebel once in a while, and now is Elle’s time with a candy-coloured hair look.

Now that Elle’s free from the thick of the publicity for her latest film, The Neon Demon, she’s able to let her hair down (literally) and experiment a little. Cue bright pink hair makeover courtesy of L.A. hair royalty Jenda Alcorn. The 18-year-old has referred to the colour as“Dusty [rose] ”in her debut snap on Instagram. Still young and whimsical, with a bit of edginess to it.

And Elle isn’t the only one to branch out with a bright hair colour. It was just a few weeks ago that Beverly Hills 90210 alum Tori Spelling debuted her own take on the pink hair trend, with an ombre finish that has an added twist of dark pink roots through to blonde ends, and let’s not forget Bella Hadid’s (temporary) platinum blonde and pink combo, and Cate Blanchett’s pink bob.

Hopefully this rosé-inspired update is a sign of bold beauty choices to come from Elle!
