Christina Hendricks told red hair was 'ugly'

Dec 27 2012, 11:24am CST | by

Christina Hendricks' modelling agency thought she looked "ugly" when she first dyed her hair red.

The 'Mad Men' star - who is a natural blonde - changed her hair colour when she was modelling early in her career, and despite initial criticism, she decided to keep her flame-coloured look after beating off competition from a number of other models thanks to her new bright tresses.

She said: "When I first started modelling I was blonde. Then I got a job and they wanted to do my hair bright red. I'd always wanted to, but the head of my agency was like, 'You look terrible, it's so ugly, you cannot have red hair.'

"I came back as a readhead and couldn't get my hair back to blonde for two days - in the meantime I had to audition. I booked two or three jobs, because were a lot fewer redheads than blondes, and I was like, this is working for me, I'm keeping this!"

Christian also credits her flame-coloured locks for helping her to land Hollywood movie roles, such as 2011 action film 'Drive', and she says her hair ensures people remember her.

She said: "I think it does make you stand out. People remember you when there's a sea of faces. It helps."

Christina Hendricks dons a yellow Stephen Jones turban: love it or hate it?

Oct 9 2014 6:35am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

When I was in college, I went through a ‘do-rag phase. I had a collection of vintage scarves and I would use them as headbands, ponytail binders or as traditional “kerchief” ‘do-rags. I left that phase behind. Nowadays I’m mostly in a low-ponytail phase, if I do anything to my hair at all. But Christina Hendricks is still experimenting with scarves and headpieces and such. Or whatever this is. These are pics of Christina at the Club Tacori ...
