Eva Mendes swaps her brunette hair for a trending ‘sunset copper’ colour

Christmas is over but the red colour scheme is carrying on into the new year in the form of Eva Mendes’ new hair colour. The Hitch actress, 48, just transformed her usually brunette colour into a fiery red hue – and the shade has got “Little Mermaid” written all over it.

Eva posted the transformation to her Instagram account, captioning the selfie: “Mira esto! I went red.”

The new colour is a vibrant gingery red which complements her olive skin tone perfectly. We can’t quite see the roots of her hair, but it looks like she’s had a full-head tint or gloss applied.

Her 3.5 million followers are loving the change to her look, with plenty of them taking to the comment section to rave about the red colour.

“Red hair looks so beautiful with your brown eyes,” says one, while a second says: “Love this colour on you, so beautiful.”

“Red really suits you!” says a third.

The exact colour Eva is wearing is being labelled a “sunset copper” by hair experts – and it’s a hue that’s set to dominate social media and red carpets in the coming months.

“The tone is lashings of bright orange and vivid red tones to add warmth. It’s a vibrant colour that can be worn all over to stand out more or flashes through the hair for a softer inspiration,” explains Sophia Karayiannis, assistant manager at Blue Tit hair salon.

In terms of other red trends on the 2023 menu: “I've already started to see a lot of softer tones like strawberry/apricot blondes and smoky brunettes,” says Ricky Lee Forrest, salon manager at Blue Tit. “Both add a multi-tonal finish with a soft grow-out. The smoky tones popping through already dark hair will just add a bit of life. When it comes to the warmer apricot/strawberry blondes, if you already have a lot of blonde in your hair, it will help keep the overall look softer. The beauty of copper and reds is you can decide how bold to go.”
