Any avid viewer will tell you, Mad Men is one of those iconic shows that will live on in our memories for years following the series finale, with Betty Draper's character arc in particular being one of the most interesting we've seen to date. The '60s era wardrobe and well-coiffed hairstyles of the decade were key in helping January Jones embody her role as Betty, and funnily enough, also to distance herself from the character. "After each season of Mad Men, I would try to change my hair as much as I could," she tells InStyle. "I couldn't cut it or grow it out, but I could put highlights in it, or dye it pink. It changes your mood and attitude, and it helped me separate myself from the character, but also to develop them."

Even outside of her role as Betty, the actress held no reservations over changing up her hairstyle as her #tbt Instagrams will confirm, so her role as a Kérastase spokesperson for their upcoming May launch is an especially fitting one. "Ever since I was a child, I was changing my hair. One of the best pieces of beauty advice I've been given is that it will grow back, so I've done a lot of hair risks knowing that," she adds. Jones credits her creative spirit as the driving force, and with the rainbow of color trends constantly gaining popularity, we wouldn't be surprised if a mermaid-esque ombré was her next move.
