Eva Mendes Just Dyed Her Hair the Prettiest Shade of Auburn — See the Photos

Eva Mendes is warming up the winter with some fresh hair color.

The actor showed off her new look on Instagram, posting a contemplative selfie looking toward the horizon, the natural light gleaming on her newly-dyed red hair. “Mira esto! I went red,” Mendes wrote alongside her picture. The color in question is gorgeous, of course; it practically glows through your phone screen. Mendes let her new hair color be the center of attention in the pic and wore minimal makeup, just a bit of mascara.

The actor and Skura Style founder had actually given fans a sneak peek at the auburn hue a few days prior, when she posted a holiday message about supporting each other through what can be a difficult, emotional time. In the video, Mendes faced the camera and played with her hair, wearing dark liner on both her upper and lower lashlines. (She did add a small shoutout to the new look at the end of her post.) The color is a bit of a departure for the actor, who typically sticks to either a dark brunette or a caramel blonde hue, though she has dipped her toes into the redhead world before. You can also see the color in action in a video Mendes posted of herself and her dog Lucho; in both videos, the color looks a bit darker than Mendes’s selfie, leading us to believe that it’s a rich but bright auburn red.
