There was a time when gray hair meant looking old and faded. Those days seem to be a thing of the past as more people are finding silver hair stylish and absolutely slaying it. Celebrities are embracing the gray and standing proud in their natural beauty the spotlight: Jamie Lee Curtis, Helen Mirren and Diane Keaton have all stepped out in striking silver in recent years.
Fonda, an Academy Award-winning actress and star of the Netflix series “Grace and Frankie,” has been a blonde for decades, and she has looked fabulous. From her early days in “Barbarella” through her two Oscar-winning performances in the 1970s and in her Netflix series, Fonda has kept her hair looking light blond, somewhat long, and always fabulous.
Hints of Fonda’s transformation to silver emerged at a special screening of “Grace and Frankie” in January 2020. When dazzling on the red carpet, along with her co-star Lily Tomlin, in a gray suit, her hair looked lighter than usual.
But, Fonda made an even more dramatic appearance during the 2020 Academy Awards ceremony on Feb. 9, when she took the stage to announce the Oscar for Best Picture. When she emerged in a fiery red gown and a sassy silver pixie hairstyle, she wowed the audience.
Fans went crazy for Fonda’s new look on social media.
Twitter user Renee Silverman gushed over Fonda’s new do:
