Emma Roberts: 'Red hair is the real me'

Emma Roberts loved changing things up with her tresses when she dyed them red recently.

Actress Emma Roberts is surprised at how much she feels herself with red hair.

The 25-year-old star switched up her tresses in March (16), stepping out to unveil flame-coloured locks in place of her previous dirty blonde finish. It seems the change of appearance has also played a big part in Emma's mood, as she now feels more comfortable in her own skin than ever before.

"I love being a redhead," she told Us Weekly. "I've never been red before and I feel surprisingly myself.

"I thought I would feel like a different person but I feel very me. It was nice to change things up after having long blonde hair on Scream Queens for seven months. I feel like a new person."

Another perk of swapping shades is that red has proved to be easier to maintain than her blonde locks.

Emma isn't just getting a makeover in real life; her character in TV show Scream Queens - Chanel Oberlin - is also planning a new look. Like her other hit programme American Horror Story, Screen Queens has a different focus each season, and the second series is set in mental hospital. The characters remain the same though, unlike cast members changing parts in the former.

"I doubt Chanel is looking as 'Chanel' as we remember her (on the finale of the first season)," Emma said. "I don't know what the transformation's going to be but I'm sure (the show runners will have) something up their sleeve!"

The American actress most recently showed off her red hair at Coachella festival last weekend (15-17Apr16), where she rocked a wardrobe with an "ethereal-baby-doll" vibe. This included pieces like a leather skirt, vintage T-shirt and Converse. Her flowing, wavy locks only complemented the edgy aesthetic, as did her choice of accessories. Thanks to attending with stylist Brit Smith, Emma had plenty of shades on hand to wear throughout the shows.

"We brought 35 pairs of sunglasses to Coachella," she recently told WWD.
