Actress Diane Kruger had to work hard to get her hair blonde again after accidently dyeing it brown.

German star Diane Kruger isn't immune to hair disasters, as she recently had to fix her tresses after accidentally turning them "mud brown".

The 39-year-old model-and-actress has flaunted beautiful blonde locks for years, seen in the likes of campaigns for Calvin Klein and movies including Inglourious Basterds. But earlier in October (15) at the God's Love We Deliver Golden Heart Awards in New York, Diane's hair had an orangey tinge. Quizzed on whether it was for a role, the star admitted it was the result of a hair dyeing session gone wrong.

"Oh, my God," she sighed to Allure. "I hadn't coloured my hair in six months, and I had been away working for two months. I'm in New York and it looked a little dull, so I just thought, I'll go to CVS (pharmacy) and buy a gloss. Only it turned my hair a dark mud brown.

"I called anybody that I know in New York who could help me. (Hairdresser) Serge Normant literally saved me this morning. And now it's still slightly red, but it's getting better. I have to keep going back. The woman at the salon who is helping me said it's going to take three visits."

Luckily things appear to be back to normal now, as she showed off golden curls in Los Angeles this week (beg26Oct15). Diane previously shared who she trusts with her tresses, naming French beauty expert Perrine Rougemont as her stylist of choice. They've worked together on photo shoots since the star was 16 and have formed a close friendship over the years.

"I’m really picky with hair, and have terrible hair, and she really knows how to do it and she’s also a really, really nice person," Diane recently told The Violet Files. "I just can’t stand having a weird energy when I’m already sort of stressed out to go on the red carpet. I feel very safe with her."

However, when it comes to her make-up Diane is happy to take control. She's been surrounded by so many cosmetics pros during her career that she feels confident in creating her own looks, always letting her outfit do the talking rather than her make-up.
