On Wednesday, October 7, the 51-year-old was seen rocking a bright pink streak in her hair while on set for a photo shoot in Calabasas. The former No Doubt front woman posed in a pair of animal print cut-off shorts with a black tank and a R13 fringed cargo jacket. She topped the whole look off with a pair of $5,040 embellished cowboy boots by Philipp Plein.
Though it didn’t stick around for more than a year, the epic neon pink ‘do was formative to the cool-girl’s edgy image. When talking with Vogue last year, the songstress revealed that the hue was a result of a breakup.
“It’s so true: If you go through a breakup or a really big change in your life, sometimes you go ahead and change your hair to try to, I don’t know, wash whatever feelings those are out of your hair,” she said in a video. “I was really confused at this time. I was 29 years old. I was really confused about my relationship. I didn’t know who I was. I had come off a long long tour. I had gotten famous. I got to buy a house. I got to move out of my parent’s house. So much had happened.”
While navigating all of this, she turned to Manic Panic for a bit of relief. “I didn’t have any budgets. I didn’t have a stylist… I wanted my hair like cotton candy light hair. I had this vision of what I wanted and I ended up with fuchsia pink hair for like a year.”
It seems that the style is coming back on trend again. After all, Stefani isn’t the only A-lister who’s recently stepped out with this bright new color. Ashley Benson was seen leaving the Mèche Salon in Beverly Hills on Thursday, October 8, with chunky pink highlights.
