Mane Monday: Reese Witherspoon's Go-To Hair Colorist on Spring's Hot Hue
Lorri Goddard, who also works with Jennifer Lawrence and Chloe Moretz, says ombre is out and "blended childlike color" is in.
When it comes to hair color, particularly among actresses (and, let’s face it, actors too) Hollywood’s biggest celebs don’t just trust their locks to anyone. Enter Lorri Goddard, the hair pro who’s been creating custom color for Reese Witherspoon (she took the Wild actress from Legally Blonde to chocolate brown for her Oscar-winning role as June Carter Cash in Walk the Line, and back to blonde again), Jennifer Lawrence, Chloe Moretz and Rooney Mara, and recently opened the Goddard + Bragg Salon in West Hollywood with hair stylist Chris Turner-Bragg.

Since hair color can be a somewhat subtle thing (particularly among actresses who usually can’t do anything too drastic) to us salon civilians, we tapped Goddard to give us her expert insight on the hair color seen during this awards season and what trends she is predicting for spring.
Pret-a-Reporter: It seems like the year of the blond. Did you notice more blonds on the red carpet this season that in the past?
Lorri Goddard: Yes, there was a focus on gorgeous fresh hues of blonde this season.
What is the biggest trend in hair color at the moment?
Beautiful, blended childlike color in all hues. It feels right with '70s-inspired hair and runway-inspired sleek ponytails.
What techniques do you use on celebrity clients that work especially well for the red carpet to appear best on camera and in pictures?
I always implement hand painted Balayage threads of color moving into blended shimmery moments of light. Or threads of Balayage moving into beachy panels to reflect a halo around the face.
What was your overall take on hair color during the Oscars or with celebs during awards season in general?
Ombré is dead. Blended beautiful color is back.
