The Advertising Standards Authority claims another victim!
This time it's the Clairol Nice 'n' Easy commercial featuring Christina Hendricks going from her signature red hair to a bright golden blonde.

The ASA investigated the ad's suggestion that it's possible to go from red to blonde with only one step, and the investigation prompted the brand to admit that the commercial was actually filmed in reverse.
Christina was told not to dye her hair for eight weeks before the shoot, at which point her hair was dyed the blonde shade. On the second day of the shoot her hair was dyed red again.
The ASA concluded that because of this the ad "misleadingly exaggerated the capability of the product," and the commercial is now banned in the UK.

File this under: Took them long enough!
Christina Hendricks' glorious red mane is finally getting its long overdue shine!
Of course the world has been enamored with it since the moment she appeared on Mad Men, but she deserves more than that! She deserves a contract with a major haircare company!

Proving that sometimes there is justice in the world, Clairol has swooped in and claimed the russet-haired goddess as the spokesmodel for their Nice 'n' Easy line of haircolor!
The pic (above) is the first official ad, and we obviously demand that there be more.
And a commercial with her hair blowing in the wind would be great, too! Gotta give that fire some air!

Paramore's Hayley Williams is known for her colorful locks, so it's only fitting that she wants to come out with her own line of hair dye.
She told InStyle about her techincolor dreams at the Women In Music event:
“I’ve heard a lot of huge nightmare, mishap stories where it messes up or it turns a weird color and they have to cut it because it’s burned off. That sounds awful! I never want to do that to them. I really want to make hair dye eventually because I really want to make stuff that’s not super expensive, where you don’t have to have a license for it, but it won’t kill your hair."
Sounds like a good idea to us! But maybe stay away from Clairol.
