Emma Stone Is Back to Super Dark Brunette — See the Photos

Emma Stone is embracing her dark side once more. When we last saw the star at the Cannes Film Festival, her hair was a warm auburn shade—a colour the Oscar winner returns to again and again. However, it appears that she’s taken a cue from Bella Baxter and gone back to a darker tone for the New York premiere of her new movie Kinds of Kindness.

While Stone’s hair still has a slight reddish sheen to it, it’s definitely more brunette than red these days. The colour is a combo of espresso brunette with a red undertone, which brings out Stone’s light green eyes. It’s as though her Cannes colour was bumped up a few levels to bring the drama; Stone’s go-to colourist and hairstylist Mara Roszak called her look “vamp goddess,” which definitely tracks with the dark hair and black gown with sheer polka dot and net panels. Roszak styled Stone’s hair simply, tucking it behind her ears and and adding a hint of bend and product for a damp look. Makeup-wise, Stone kept it equally simple with a pretty peach blush and pink lips.

Emma Stone is one of the biggest colour chameleons in Hollywood. She’s a natural blonde and occasionally goes back to her roots, but seems to love red shades the most. Stone often swaps colours for specific roles; for example, she was platinum blonde for her role as Gwen Stacy in the Spider-Man movies and a redhead in La La Land, though Stone returned to her natural blonde shade in spring 2023, when she debuted a bright, sunny blonde bob. It’s been awhile since she’s been super dark brunette, but we’d be remiss not to mention her Poor Things character Bella; Stone wore nearly four feet of jet-black hair extensions and zero makeup for the performance, which won her her second Best Actress Oscar. Is this fresh darker colour for a role or is Stone just flipping the script on the whole “going blonde for summer” thing? That’s a TBD for now!
