Why Dree Hemingway Really Ditched the “Little Miss Sunshine Blonde”

“My hair doesn’t dictate my personality”

In a recent interview with Fashion Unfiltered, Dree Hemingway made it clear that she doesn’t want to be typecast as the “Little Miss Sunshine blonde.” (She’s also “not afraid of a boob out ever,” which is evident on the cover of Twin magazine hitting stands today.) A radical dye job doesn’t frighten the actress either: “I don’t like to fit into a box and my hair doesn’t dictate my personality,” said Hemingway at last night’s Coach Pre-Fall show, where she rocked punky tangerine strands by Suite Caroline founder and colorist Lena Ott. While the Soho salon has an esteemed reputation for flawless, buttery blondes—seen recently on the runway at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on the likes of Devon Windsor, Stella Maxwell, Megan Williams, Rachel Hilbert, and Elsa Hosk—they also do a mean set of rainbow highlights. Ott was able to tap into Hemginway’s “inner unicorn” and bring out the “Dreamsicle” in Dree. As for the real reason the Chloé girl decided to take the plunge: “I turned 29 and I thought I would regret not doing something wild before I turn 30. Also, fuck 2016—horrid year.” Buh-bye blonde—hello fresh, orange outlook.
