Lily Collins is a master of saturated hair color! After going ebony brown for her role in Mirror, Mirror, the 23-year-old actress dyed her strands a deep shade of burgundy red for her upcoming part in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. "It’s not-in-your-face kind of red,” she told us of her new hue when she stopped by the InStyle portrait studio during the Toronto International Film Festival, where she promoted her flick, Writers. “To lighten it, they had to kind of do a whole process on it, which I’m always dubious of because it changes the integrity of your hair. I’ve dyed it once before red and it just really ruined my hair. So we’ve done it the right way this time.” And she’s taking care of it, too. “The hairstylist on set is doing treatments on me all the time, and we’re only retouching it every three weeks. She’s using great masques and doing all this stuff to keep it super soft.” Looks great!
