Katherine Heigl’s New Hue: Kim Vo Takes Her to the Dark Side

Katherine Heigl is the latest big screen star to hit the red carpet in a sexy new, deeper hue. The actress decided to go the way of Scarlet Johansson and Fergie and asked celebrity colorist and salon owner Kim Vo darken her signature light locks. Heigl stepped out in her new auburn hue at the premier of her latest flick The Ugly Truth looking ravishing as ever.


Playing blonde Izzie on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy prevented Heigl from drastically changing her hair, but now that her character is bald, she’s able to go for a new look. “I feel a little more exotic,” Heigl confesses.


We caught up with the celebrity colorist and asked about the sultry hue he created for Heigl. “The actual color is a unique blend,” Vo said. “If you want to recreate the color for your clients, mix a light chocolate shade with an amber/cinnamon twist.  It should have auburn hues but still be in the brunette family.”


We think the new, darker shade brings out Heigl’s lovely complexion and chocolate-brown eyes. Brunette seems to be the “in” shade of the summer–we can’t wait to see which celeb tries the hue on for size next!
