January Jones' Hair Evolution From Pink Streaks To Red-Headed Extensions

24 January 2013

There's been pink streaks and blonde bouffants, long red plaits and a brunette pony - yes, January Jones has had quite the hair history. In fact, the gorgeous actress has changed her 'do so many times, we're losing track.

To be fair, January's constant beauty updates are usually down to her various acting jobs rather than a desire to be unrecognisable. Ms Jones gave the red-headed trend a try for her role as a former prostitute in Sweetwater and even dabbled in the dark side but she's best known as a blonde siren.

Yes, our favourite January moments are when the star is stalking the red carpets in true Marilyn Monroe stylee - we're talking icy-hued bombshell waves teamed with porcelain skin and bold red lips. It works wonderfully with her retro aesthetic and she sure knows how to amp it up with beehives and flickly bobs that wouldn't be out of place in Betty Draper's hair wardrobe. Her oh-so-glam Mad Men character seems to have rubbed off on January's personal preferences and she knows how to channel that classic elegance with aplomb, even when she is off-duty.

So although her career inevitably influences Jan-Jones' hairvolution, this is one lady who likes to get playful too. In March 2012, we saw her tackle the streaky trend with bubblegum pink accents in her blonde tresses. And remember in 2011 when she went all futuristic on us at the Unknown premiere with a severe up-do tempered by a poker-straight, side-swept fringe? Talk about versatile!

During the Sundance Film Festival, the actress exclusively spoke to Grazia Daily about her ever-changing mane. 'I have been every colour and now my hair is falling out in clumps,' she told us. 'I’ve been blonde, red with extensions for this film, then blonde, then black, and now blonde again. I’m going to have to shave it off and wear a wig.'

So what's her favourite hair hue? 'I like it all colours, it makes you feel different according to what colour it is, but I prefer to be blonde. My son recognises me in photos when I am blonde, he says mama.'

As for the different reactions she gets, the star said, 'I didn’t get treated differently when I was red-headed, but when I went dark for a few months, I was suddenly invisible. Not just as a celebrity, but to my friends and family. I was like, "Come on you guys, it’s me!"'

Well, you can hardly blame them, Janners. See for yourselves with January's hair transformation in the gallery above. Wonder if it'll be a blue wig she opts for...
