Bye-bye ombre, hello auburn! Just yesterday, Drew Barrymore traded her two-tone tresses for a fiery red. We spoke to her colorist, Tracey Cunningham, who spilled the details on Barrymore's new hue. "We'd been talking about going red for awhile—at least the last couple of months. This wasn't a spur-of-the-moment decision and because she's been red before, we knew it would look good," Cunningham told us exclusively. "We went for a warm tone that would flatter her skin tone, and the whole process took about four hours." What advice would Cunningham offer other blonds who feel like they might be ready for a red moment? "Commit to the color. That's what Drew's doing. She really waited and thought about it, and now she'll be red for awhile. Red isn't a color to be taken lightly."
