Jessica Chastain's Auburn Look That Fans Envy

Jessica Chastain is currently in the midst of having a truly memorable year. The Juilliard-trained actress has appeared in the recent HBO miniseries "Scenes from a Marriage" alongside Oscar Isaac, and her latest film "The Eyes of Tammy Faye" premiered in September 2021 (via IMDb). On the docket for 2022 is the highly anticipated film "The 355," which is being produced by Chastain's Freckle Films, as well as two other movies currently in post-production (via Variety).

The 44-year-old actress first received acclaim for her acting skills in 2011 when she portrayed Celia Foote in "The Help." Her portrayal earned her Best Supporting Actress nominations at the 2012 Academy Awards and the 2012 BAFTAs, among many other accolades (via IMDb). Since then, Chastain has dazzled in films such as "Zero Dark Thirty," "Molly's Game," and "A Most Violent Year," and has become a Hollywood starlet in the process. 

Though Chastain is widely regarded for her impeccable fashion, her hair is the most important part of her signature look (via Elle). Fans envy Jessica Chastain's auburn locks, and even though it's actually her natural color, we've discovered the perfect way to get this exact shade during your next salon visit.

Jessica Chastain learned to appreciate her red hair later in life

Jessica Chastain often changes her look for her various film roles, but the California native always goes back to her roots once she's done filming — literally. You know the absolutely gorgeous shade of red hair she has? Yeah, that's all-natural (per PopSugar). Although Chastain has embraced her natural hair color as an adult, she actually struggled with her appearance at a young age. During an interview with Refinery29 in 2017, the actress spoke about what it was like to grow up with red hair.

"As a child, I didn't want to be different — I wanted to look the same as everyone else because I didn't want to be singled out," Chastain told the publication. She added, "I was ridiculed for having red hair; for having freckles. But whatever you are ridiculed about that makes you different is what you'll celebrate in the future. If I wanted to dye my hair, I could, but I realized that's who I am, and my differences [make me] special."

We're happy to hear that Chastain learned to appreciate her natural beauty, and her stunning red hair has become a source of envy for fans around the world. Even though the "Interstellar" actress doesn't typically dye her hair, you can achieve this same auburn hue with a few helpful tips.

Jessica Chastain's hair color is a blend of auburn tones

For those of you who wish to emulate Jessica Chastain's signature hairstyle, you're in luck. Even if you weren't born with red hair yourself, you can still replicate her beautiful auburn hue with the help of a professional hairstylist. We recommend having the color done by a professional at a reputable salon, since this particular shade of auburn is multi-tonal and can be difficult to achieve at home. The last thing you want is to ruin your dye job and end up with a color you aren't happy with.

According to Byrdie, Chastain's hair has a distinctly copper tone. This tone serves as the natural base for the rest of your locks, which is something to keep in mind when you're discussing the details with your stylist.
