Being on Game of Thrones sounds like hell for your hair. No wonder Emilia Clarke wants to switch things up a bit now that she's wrapped filming the hit HBO show. Instead of long platinum blonde hair with intricately woven braids, Clarke showed off a completely new style on the Oscars red carpet.

After recently trying out a pixie cut inspired by her favorite '90s celebrity couple (Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow), Clarke dyed her hair a dramatically dark brunette shade. The actress turned to Virtue ambassador Nicola Clarke for the new look. 

"Emilia returned to a rich brunette for the Oscars -- a really rich, healthy glossy shade that is just a touch darker than her natural color. I used Virtue ColorKick to amp the gloss and shine and maintain the health of the hair during the color process," said Clarke. 

This new color technology is salon professional-only product that's mixed right into color bowl to keep hair as healthy as possible. It does this by filling in the keratin protein of the hair, which typically decays during the coloring process.

According to her Instagram post showing off her new look, the hair transformation was a huge part of her mission for the night. "Blondes have more fun eh?! Well I will see about that this fine #oscar2019 evening..... let the good times roll," Clarke captioned the photo.

 

Hairstylist Jenny Cho styled the star's now-bob hair length sleek and straight with the front pieces tucked behind her ears. When worn with a sparkly lavender gown, the small styling detail gives the look an effortless vibe.
