Tennis champion Emma Raducanu just dyed her hair a lot lighter

First things first, let us introduce you to MBE and British professional tennis champions, Emma Raducanu. The young star (she’s still a teenager!) hit a career-high, ranked 10th on the Women’s Tennis Association, in July this year and, of course, won the 2021 US Open women’s singles title. But let’s not be silly, hey, you knew that but already!

When she’s flaunting her incredible natural athletic ability, it’s essential that Emma wears her hair back in something like one of her signature ponytail braids. After all, tennis is definitely a workout… but who should I know. *Keeps at home watching and commenting on every game*.

But what hasn’t changed is her hair color—well, until now. I won’t lie, the following post resulted in an audible shock (aka I say “wowww”) when we stumbled upon a selfie of Emma’s all-new hair look. John ClarkHair colorist at Salon John Frieda in London, posted a series of pictures on his Instagram:

Just looking at the first picture, it is clear that Emma’s hair is a a few shades lighter than their previously dark brown color. In the caption, John shared the details behind the transformation, writing: “I used the @johnfriedasalons #glowlights technique to lift her naturally very dark base to a multicolored brunette with lighter areas on her face and where the Sunshine makes it shimmer naturally”.

For those who don’t know ‘glow light’ is a new alternative to Balayage Highlights and is a term coined by Nicola Clarke, hair color by John Frieda. She first used the technique on Kate Moss when she gave her hair a natural summer makeover.

So if you’re also looking for a subtle yet summery glow, why not ask your hair dyer about Glowlights the next time you’re in the salon chair. I am tempted to book me at RN…
