Eva Mendes is turning up the heat this winter with her fiery makeover. Ahead of kicking off 2023, the Hitch actress decided to start the new year, new me trend by swapping out her signature brunette hairstyle for a vibrant red colour. Eva, who has rarely changed her famous brown locks, shared a close-up of her transformation in a Dec. 27 Instagram. Looking away from the camera, the star’s hair looked effortlessly undone with its textured layers and was swooped over in a deep side part. And Eva made sure her ‘do was the mane attraction as she wore little-to-no makeup. “Mira esto!” the mom of two with Ryan Gosling captioned her photo. “I went red.” Eva credited hairstylist Richi Grisillo for her dramatic makeover, which appeared to have happened sometime during the holidays. On Christmas Eve, she posted a short Instagram video of herself running her fingers through her freshly colored tresses, pairing the look with a simple white T-shirt, layers of chunky necklaces, a dab of pink lipstick and smudged eyeliner. At the time, Eva didn’t call too much attention to her transformation. Instead, she shared a heartfelt message about how the holiday season can be complicated. “Whatever you celebrate or don’t celebrate, if you’re with friends and family or flying solo, I’m sending you loads of love during this time,” she wrote. “I know how hard it can be for some. She added, “Don’t let Instagram trick you-we’re all dealing with our own s–t.” Getting a little more personal, Eva admitted that she’s not one to hide her emotions.
