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 & Taylor Schilling 2014 Emmy Jewelry!

Aug 27 2014 6:45am CDT | Source: I'm Not Obsessed

Is it just me or does it seem like the jewelry trend for the past few years at celebrity awards shows has been to tone down the bling? We just don’t seem to hear about celebs wearing jewelry worth six or seven figures and having bodyguards shadow them just to make sure the jewels aren’t stolen. That doesn’t mean celebs are going bare, however! Celebs such as Christina Hendricks, Michelle Dockery, Lucy Liu and Kelly Osbourne wore gold pieces ...

Sofia Vergara, Julia Roberts, Michelle Dockery & Amanda Peet Red Carpet Pics From 2014 Emmys!

Aug 26 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: I'm Not Obsessed

The actresses are always much more, well, sedate, than the singers, so it’s no surprise that the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards red carpet didn’t have the fashion risks we saw at the 2014 MTV VMAs. Yet what was similar to the VMAs was that there was no clear red carpet trend, either. Everyone went with their own style. It’s fun to see the ‘Orange is the New Black’ ladies outside of their prison garb! We hav ...

Christina Hendricks vs January Jones: who had the best red gown at the Emmys?

Aug 26 2014 6:05am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Christina Hendricks arrived on the red carpet early so her red Marchesa dominated early fashion conversation. Some of you liked this Marchesa on her (I think CB liked it). I did not. One, it’s Marchesa which always looks cheap once you see the full-length look. I joked that bad, ill-fitting skirts were part of the Marchesa Signature, and here you go. I guess the dress is taffeta and that’s why the skirt looks that way? So, basically, this is a prom dress for the bustiest ginger in ...

Lizzy Caplan covers LA Confidential, claims she was told she wasn’t ‘WB pretty’

I’m finally up-to-date on Season 2 of Masters of Sex. And I am pretty disappointed. I sometimes felt like I was the only one really, really in love with the first season. I told everybody to watch Season 1. Did you watch it? Probably not. And now I’m not even sure I should still recommend it because the second season has been a mess. The writing has been all over the place and they’re making a concerted effort to make the two female leads, ...
