Does “The Voice” have a quota for platinum-blonde pop stars?
On Monday night, the show’s season 10 judge Christina Aguilera edged away from her traditionally light locks and embraced a different color of the rainbow. While candy-colored hair and braids are very on-trend at the moment (at least among the festival-going set), she added an alt-angle to her new lavender hue, accessorizing a single front braid with a cascading row of piercing-style hoops. Hairstylist Chris Appleton showed off his work on Instagram with a detail shot, and Aguilera’s makeup artist Etienne Ortega kept the look matchy-matchy, giving her a dark purple lip and lilac eyeliner.
Aguilera shares judging duties on the NBC competition show with Blake Shelton, Pharrell Williams and Adam Levine, and last night she also shared with a fellow blonde pop star. The show’s erstwhile judge Gwen Stefani and Shelton performed the debut of “Let Me Break Your Heart,” their new romantic duet. Stefani joined him on stage wearing a mesh floral fishtail gown by Australian designer Jamie Lee. The pop-punk is no stranger to mixing around her beauty look, either: in March she headed to Tokyo Fashion Week to promote her new album, performing with black dip-dyed hair on display.
