The 64th Annual Grammy Awards happened on the 4th of April 2022 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The ethereal Dua Lipa was also in attendance wearing a vintage Versace (first showcased in 1992) black gown dripped in gold coined chains.
The Major Hair Transformation
But what really caught our eye was Dua Lipa’s recent hair transformation. She opted for a platinum blond length with hints of her former brunette lengths left at the roots. This transformation read as an ode to Donatella Versace. Chris Appleton, the hairstylist for Dua Lipa, gave her waist-length hair with a sleek platinum look.
Things to Know Before Going Platinum Blonde
Surely we’re all loving Dua Lipa’s iconic hair transformation, but if you are planning on undertaking the assignment yourself, here are things to know:
- You must head to the salon every four to six weeks to touch up your hair color and prevent banding. The scalp produces an average of half an inch of heat that causes hair to lift unevenly across the landscape, which creates a band that can lead to breakage and permanent damage.
- On that note, always leave the coloring job to a professional colorist; you’re only going to regret every attempt of DIY-ing the project. Going platinum is incredibly time-consuming, especially when you must undergo an extensive bleaching cycle. You should be able to discuss the price with your hair colorist upon consultation.
- You can overdo protein and moisture for your platinum hair! While moisture only makes the strands feel heavier, excess protein can actually harden the hair, resulting in breakage.
