Jodie Turner-Smith Is Making Her Way Through the Hair Color Rainbow


Jodie Turner-Smith never fails to deliver a bonafide red carpet moment. Who can forget when she wore a diamond fringe Gucci dress to the Met? As of late, the actor has leaned into the idea of steady transformation for public appearances. She debuted a bright green hairstyle for the premiere of The Independent, a political thriller, on Tuesday night. The shocking color was just the latest fabulous stop on the color spectrum for Turner-Smith. Only a few weeks ago she was photographed with blue hair and, before that, blonde and, before that, pink.

Turner-Smith’s ever-changing hair color is a fabulous example that a hairstyle doesn’t have to be months-long commitment. Steady reinvention can be a signature look, too (with the right care and maintenance, of course.) Pop stars, such Lady Gaga and Cardi B, have long illustrated this with their vast array of wigs, cuts, and hair colors. In a way, their shape-shifting hair is a vehicle of self-expression for the alter-egos they often adopt for each new album or single. Here, on the red carpet, Turner-Smith is applying the same chameleonic approach—and having major fun while doing it. Scroll through her rainbow’s worth of vivid crops below:
