Zendaya Used $56 Semi-Permanent Dye to Get Her Hair Red
Zendaya is known for never sticking to a single hair look for too long. And thanks to wigs and clip-in extensions, the Euphoria star hardly ever wears the exact same style or color twice — making the red hair she debuted on the 2019 Emmy Awards red carpet a complete surprise.
But if you're getting déjà vu seeing Zendaya as a redhead, it's because this is the exact same color she dyed her hair back in July when she showed up to a photo call for Spider-Man: Far from Home. The drastic change led fans to tweet her to ask if the color was real. The actress confirmed that she colored her hair using semi-permanent dye at the time, meaning it would fade off evenly in a handful of washes.
Still, fans were quick to jump to the conclusion that the star's new hair color was a sign that she's going to play Ariel in Disney's live-action remake of the Little Mermaid. But even though Zendaya's soft waves styled by Ursula Stephen channel Ariel, it's been announced that Halle Bailey got the part.
Since then, Zendaya's hair has transitioned from bright red to auburn, golden brown, and now back to red for the biggest night in television. The actress used Overtone's at-home conditioning kit to get her hair coppery red before hitting the red carpet. This pigmented conditioner only takes 10-15 minutes to deposit the color, and lasts for a number of washes depending on your natural hair color and the shade you use.

Depsite the star being somewhat of a chameleon when it comes to her hair, her Emmy awards look is proof that this could be Zendaya's go-to color when she wants to give her brown hair a break. Here's to seeing how long she'll stick with it the second time around.
