WOW! Can you believe Blake traded in her golden locks for a ginger red? Do you think it looks better or worse?

Blake Lively, 23, showcased her hot new hair color at the Time 100 Gala for the magazine’s issue on 100 Most Influential People In The World on April 26 in NYC. We love the new Blake!

The Gossip Girl star is famous for her beautiful blonde curls — we never thought she’d leave the blonde team! Kyle White, celebrity colorist at Oscar Blandi salon, says red is a big trend for spring and definitely recommends it!

Kyle thinks the level of lightness is good for Blake’s skin tone and the contrast against her blue eyes make them glow! After seeing Mandy Moore and Drew Barrymore rocking it in red, will you take the dive, too?

Kyle says, “The trick is to get the right red for you. The biggest considerations when choosing the best red for you is skin tone, eye color and lifestyle.”

Here are his suggestions:

1.People with fair skin and light eyes look best with strawberry blondes and copper reds.

2. Medium skin tones and brown eyes should go for auburns and mahogany shades.

3. The darkest skin tones are most natural looking with deep berry reds such as black cherry.

Kyle warns us that red is the largest color molecule, so it slips out of the hair quickly and is the fastest fading hue. “If you want to keep your new red hair vibrant and fabulous it’s going to require some effort.” He suggests using a dry shampoo between washes and a sunblock specially formulated for the hair.

If anything, we would have expected Blake to go brunette before taking the dive to a ginger red. This is a huge step for Blake and we support it! Who would have thought she could pull off such a unique hue like this?

Do YOU like Blake as a redhead? Tell us!
