Kate Mara: Redheads rock

Kate Mara thinks redheads have more fun than blondes and is looking forward to returning to her natural color.

The House of Cards star recently had to hit the bleach bottle for her role as blonde beauty Sue Storm/ The Invisible Woman in The Fantastic Four.

Proving that blondes don't have more fun, Kate is looking forward to ditching her new colour in favour of her natural reddish hue.

"My natural shade is auburn, but I dyed my hair blonde for The Fantastic Four. But I'm excited to finish the movie and go back to red. Redheads have more fun," she laughed to People magazine.

Kate wowed on the red carpet at the Coach party held in New York last month, where she rocked a bright yellow top paired with ruffled maroon shorts, both by Sandro.

Her hair was styled into a faux undercut, which stylist Peter Butler says was inspired by the hot weather.

"It was 1,000 degrees out. She said, 'Maybe we could do it so it's beachy but up?'" Peter laughed to the publication. "I sectioned off the top, and once I got the base braid in, I dropped it down and did a loose French braid. That braid is sitting on top of the other."

To compliment her summery up do, make-up artist Nick Barose created a look that wasn't too heavy for the occasion but still made her best features stand out.

"Kate loves to play up her eyes, so I did a fun reddish-brown smoky look, using a new fall Votre Vu shadow.

"[The blush] it's actually the same coral Yves Saint Laurent colour that's on her lips. I dabbed it on the apples of her cheeks," Nick explained.

The pair collaborate on a regular basis, with Nick always pleased to work on new looks for the 31-year-old actress.

"She always wears cool clothes. She makes it fun and easy!" he gushed.
