The actress surprises on Instagram with new hair color.
"Summer is all about color," wrote Jessica Alba under a new photo of herself on Instagram wearing a rainbow t-shirt. But while she was referring to the pinks, blues, reds, and yellows of her ensemble, the rest of us were mostly intrigued by her surprisingly darker hair.
A departure from her long-standing balayage coloration - Jessica Alba is known for wearing a soft, caramel color through her mid-lengths and ends, but the new brunette hue is a few shades darker and more intense. The perfect shade to accentuate her deep brown eyes and olive complexion.
Shiny and disheveled, with glossy lips, raised eyebrows, and a tanned complexion, the new look drew the looks of many fans. Kate Hudson wrote "Yes !!!!" while makeup artist Daniel Martin proclaimed, "LOVE LOVE LOVE Baby Girl !!!".
The key to making darker colors look as healthy as possible (like with Alba) is to make sure the hair is super-nourished and well-groomed. Reach for clever multitasking shampoos like the "Elvive Color Protect More Than Shampoo" from L'Oréal Paris, which softens the hair, gives it shine, and strengthens it like a hair mask, while the "Tame Hair Serum" from Aesop the hair smooths, gives it more shine and at the same time protects it with antioxidants.
