Sarah Michelle Gellar has temporarily dyed her hair pink so she can “embarrass her children”.
The Buffy the Vampire Slayer actress took to Instagram on Tuesday to reveal her latest hair transformation, having spontaneously decided to swap her signature blonde locks for a rose-pink shade during the coronavirus lockdown.
“Well, because we are still in quarantine, I had to think of a new and creative way to embarrass my children: ‘Quarancolour,'” the 43-year-old told her fans in the short clip, referring to her daughter Charlotte, 10, and seven-year-old son Rocky, whom she shares with husband Freddie Prinze Jr.
In the accompanying caption, Sarah noted that she had used a temporary colour product and would be rocking the pastel hue until it begins to “fade out”.
Her post quickly racked up over 900,000 views and attracted comments from many of her 3.1 million followers.
Celebrity make-up artist Daniel Martin praised, “So gorgeous honey! I love how it warms up your skin too!” while another fan posted, “Pretty in Pink – I love it.”
And others noted that Sarah’s fun makeover had inspired them to consider a bold new look too.
“Yessss!! I’ve been so tempted to do something like this too! My kids would be mortified (especially the 19-year-old). You look awesome!!” a fan added.
The actress isn’t the only Hollywood star to experiment with their hair colour while staying at home and practicing social distancing during the lockdown.
Jennifer Love Hewitt unveiled new pink locks earlier this month after trying out the Lime Crime Unicorn Hair Color Conditioner, while Elle Fanning, Dua Lipa, and Ireland Baldwin have also tried out pink tresses.
Elsewhere, Hilary Duff has opted for a bold blue shade and Taraji P. Henson has been rocking a dark red hue.
