Shame on any of you ladies that have the coloring to pull off red hair and haven't tried it yet. Do it for the rest of us!
I read once that Christina Hendricks gave Karen Elson the formula for her red hair:
"Oh, I have a story for you," she says conspiratorially. "I was in Milan, and you would see the same girls at castings. There was one girl—she was like, 'I can't get any work. I'm so sick of this, I'm ready to quit. I love your hair color. What do you color your hair with?' and I was like, 'Oh, it's red. Here's my formula.' It was Karen Elson. A couple of weeks later, she had bright-red hair." Christina leans into the tape recorder and says, "Sorry, Karen, but you did ask about my hair color. Then I saw her on the cover of Italian Vogue, and the rest is history!" She laughs. "Karen is amazing. I'm such an admirer of hers." But she's right: It is a good story.
