“As a redhead, I was originally really shy. I was 13 and changed my hair from blonde to red [for the show] and I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is so weird, this is not me’. “But my role in Game of Thrones went from being a very vulnerable and insecure young girl to being a powerful woman who is very confident in herself and very empowered. So whenever I think of my red hair, I relate it to such a strong woman,” she shared with People.
“I find power in every haircut and color because you can transform yourself into whatever you want and you can reinvent yourself.”
To keep up with the color, Turner dyed her hair weekly. However, she’ll be sporting a wig in the last season of Game of Thrones. “It’s really empowering thing to use your hair for roles,” she explains. “When you’re wearing a wig, it gives a sense of momentary transformation and it doesn’t let you really commit to a role. So I try to really use my own hair.”
Turner goes on to share her love for Wella’s new in-salon treatment, Wellaplex. “As an actor, I’m always dyeing my hair and using heat on it, so it’s really important to keep my hair healthy so I can keep changing it.”
Even though the 22-year-old actress isn’t a natural redhead, we still adore her and her [red] locks. Rock it like a Redhead!
