Nadine Lustre has been thinking about going platinum blonde for a while, and her shoot with Nylon Manila presented the perfect opportunity for it. The actress has been taking a break from the screen as she focuses on herself and the music. Her comeback is bold and strong, as she shines bright in her bedazzled outfit and pin-straight blonde that is a stark contrast from her natural roots.
Blonde for a Day
She shares the photo on her Instagram to her 10 million followers with the caption, “Blonde for a day,” which unsurprisingly wowed a lot of people. The golden tress was achieved by hairstylist Paul Nebres, who has already worked with her in the past. Other hairdos he has pulled off for Nadine include a mullet for her L’Officiel Philippines shoot and her high ponytail braid for her single, Glow’s live performance.
This isn’t the first time the singer/actress has gone for lighter hair color. Back in 2018, she decided to lighten her hair and went for a blonde balayage. Hairstylist and colorist Kiko Pedaza chose ash blonde because it transitions or fades well in the long run and the tones complemented her complexion. We think it’s safe that this icon can rock any look.
Behind the Reel
More than her looks, a lot has changed for Nadine. She tells Nylon Manila that her journey with music has helped her solidify how honest and authentic she is. “I love music. It changes and moves me in a way that you cannot understand.” As a songwriter, she can’t describe how incredible it feels to connect with people through her music.
The queen of keeping things real found that expressing herself through music is unlike her other creative endeavors. Not that she was being fake, but words and lyrics resonate with people differently and this is another way of speaking her truth. Wildest Dreams was freeing and an emotional release, and we love to see just how much Nadine Lustre has grown.
Give her album a listen and be awed with this extension of Nadine. It’s unapologetic and genuine, and she delivers it in such a soulful way. Not to mention, the platinum blonde color really suits her and it’s welcome back any day.
