We are still not at the end of the road Sha’Carri Richardson sprinted in our hearts and on our hair goals list a few months ago. (We still haven’t passed the full stadium that kept her out of the Olympics after a triumphant qualifier, but I digress.) The talented runner became instantly recognizable for the stunning orange wig she wore to run, and while she was seen in darker tones. , more red variations of the shade as it seemed warm, fiery hair was Richardson’s favorite shade – until now.
Richardson posted a video on Instagram revealing an unexpected new look. The clip begins with the star athlete sitting in a lounge chair, showing off her natural hair. As she syncs with Nicki Minaj’s voice – “I took a few, you know, I took some rest, and now it’s game time, bitches” – her stylist removes her blouse, cutting her “after”.
Richardson now has super long, platinum blonde, shoulder-length, wavy hair – a huge change from his usual color. But what makes it an even bigger change is the amazing section of blue below. The look was created by an Orlando-based stylist Brianna Renee, also known as the Lace Tamer.
Peekaboo color like Richardson’s new blue is a huge trend for fall, says New York-based stylist Luis miller. “The Peekaboo colors that I see a lot – some in the middle of the bang, then under the side, around the face,” he says. Seduce.
missouri colorist Colissa Nolé observed the same – and not just on blonde hair like Richardson’s new base color. “High contrast and pops of light next to a dark base are also very helpful,” she says.
We’re obsessed with how blue matches his Nike jersey and briefs. (If you take a closer look, it also seems to match the emphasis on her fabulous manicure.) And honestly, we can’t wait to see that beautiful hair flowing behind her when she returns to the runway.
