The Pink Lady … Helen Mirren

Print Friendly

First reaction on seeing Helen Mirren’s pink BAFTA hair? Wow.

Bye-bye blue rinse, Dame Helen’s candy pink BAFTA hair taps into a trend seen on much younger women – and it looks amazing.

Premiered at the BAFTAs last night, her soft grey dress, low-key eye make up and deep pink lipstick allow all the attention to focus on her hair, which looks both modern and incredibly flattering.

We’re not sure how long she’ll stick with pink, but 10/10 to Ms Mirren – who is 67 – for demonstrating, yet again, that 50+ women continue to turn heads for all the right reasons.

Would you go pink? Did you love Helen’s new look or prefer her with Silver hair? Let us know….

With over twenty years experience on the frontline of beauty journalism, she still gets over-excited at the mention of the words ‘glitter’ and ‘eye shadow’ in the same sentence. She is, however, completely wise to the fact that there’s absolutely no such thing as a ‘miracle’ cream (no matter what the label says!)

I think she looks lovely! I might be a wee bit biased, as I love all things pink, but why not have her hair whatever colour she feels like!! It's much better than some colours people use!!
I now have to wear a wig, but would certainly go pink if I had enough of my own hair!!
Well done look great!

I saw Helen on the Graham Norton Show a few weeks ago and she asked a singer - can't remember her name - about her hair colour, very similar to what Dame Helen is sporting herself.I have been colouring my hair purple for several years, just large streaks at the front and get many compliments,I was 61 when I started this.

I'd love to go Pink, but not sure my OH would be able to live with it!
Helen Mirren always looks fantastic!
