Laura Harrier's Brunette Look That Fans Envy

Laura Harrier's dark brunette hair may not be as shocking as platinum blonde, it is neither dull nor lacking dimension (via Byrdie). The BlacKkKlansman actress constantly tries new styles for her hair while keeping her base color dark and timeless. She worked with hairstylist Lacy Redway during the Oscar-nominated movie's press tour and kept her color brown, even if she was experimenting with trendy yet traditional hairstyles such as box braids. Redway told Refinery29 that she wanted to highlight Harrier's strong 1970s activist character in the film, and the inspiration for her hair looks was Pam Grier and Diana Ross, all brunettes (via Vogue).

Referring to Harrier's subtle purple highlights, master hair colorist Marley Xavier told Elle, "Very dark brunette tones look super sexy on darker skin. You can add balayage through the hair to bring [a] softness and playful element to the look ... that adds contrast." The International-model-turned actress shared that her favorite look at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival was an Audrey Hepburn-inspired little updo with bangs. Her dark hair was compared to Holly Golightly and admired for its timeless elegance (via Stylectory). This lady knows how to keep it classy!

In an interview with Vogue, Harrier shared her concern with her hair.

But now, she claims her hair is at "a good place." Want to know the secret to keeping your hair looking happy and healthy like Harrier? She uses Bumble and Bumble Invisible Oil shampoo and conditioner, Oribe Gold Oil, Olaplex, and twice-yearly keratin treatments from a hairdresser in Paris.

In 2020, Harrier was vocal about the importance of having Black hairstylists on set, so actors of color could appear onscreen with their natural hair, which helps the stars look their best. Harrier told InStyle, "It's really frustrating to have so few hairstylists of color that are unionized because there [are] so many talented hairstylists out there, so it's definitely something to push for."

The Bulgari ambassador had the whole expensive brunette look down before it even started trending. According to Cosmopolitan, her dark tresses with blunt ends are one of the significant hair trends for 2022. Whether she has her hair in braids, a low ponytail, or long waves, Harrier's hair is the ultimate deep natural brunette inspiration (via Byrdie). She is one talented actress who is here to stay!
