Even though salons are open, actress Brooklyn Decker is showing off the long, grey roots she’s come to love before getting her hair colored back to blonde.
A lot of women were unable to go to salons during the 2020 lockdowns and thus had to either learn to embrace grey roots or buy a home coloring kit. For Brooklyn Decker, the 33-year-old actress did the former and actually came to “dig” her greys, which have grown out down to her ears. The Grace and Frankie star showed off an Instagram selfie with her “greys upon greys” on Apr. 7, and said that she’s “enjoyed” the look.
The mom of two showed a close-up of the side of her head, while completely makeup free. Her blue eyes absolutely popped against her flawless skin, as she made a sly expression. In the caption she wrote, “Grays on grays on grays for days and I’m kinda digging ‘em. (To be clear, I’m getting it colored next week, Im not ready for the full commitment… but I’ve certainly enjoyed it),” noting that she wasn’t ready to be a complete silver fox in her early 30’s.
That means the Just Go With It star should be returning to her trademark blonde locks very shortly. One of her hairstylists, NYC’s Michael Angelo, commented “OMG those weren’t there last time I was up in there,” and Brooklyn wrote back, “HAHA I blame 2020.” Fan @angeliquecabral joked, “I call this ‘highlights’” while @meaghanbatesy noted, “I definitely call mine quarantine’s highlights.” User @eastcoastwolf wisely noted, “I love grey hair, embrace it, not every gets to grow old enough to have them.”
Brooklyn must have been using temporary root dyes over a trip to the salon over the past six months. In previous Instagram photos, her roots appear to have been darkened brown, but in others, they are clearly visible as grey. With the amount of stress she and her husband, former pro tennis champ Andy Roddick, 38, went through during quarantine keeping up with two small children at home — son Hank, 5, and daughter Stevie, 3 — that’s enough to go prematurely grey.
Brooklyn has come a long way from her days as a swimsuit model, first appearing in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition in 2006 and landing it’s coveted cover in 2010. Now she’s a busy wife, mom and actress…not to mention aspiring fashion designer with a new collaboration with the sustainable brand Buru. All of that can combine to give anyone some grey hairs, which look darned good on Brooklyn!
