Jane Fonda Dyed Her Hair Gray For The Oscars To Challenge Hollywood Beauty Standards

Last weekend, the actress debuted her new silver fox look as she closed out the 92nd annual Academy Awards. Her colorist, Jack Martin, said it was an “honor” to dye her hair. 

“I had the honor and the pleasure to transform the legendary actress @janefonda hair specially for the 2020 Oscar. Spending 7 hours with this amazing Hollywood star and witnessing her energy, beauty, strength and femininity was so inspiring,” Martin wrote in an Instagram post.

“For straight 7 hours while I was working on her hair she was writing chapters in her due soon book, and memorizing her lines in the famous tv show Frankie and grace [sic] that she is shooting the 7th season now, answering emails and reading her newspapers plus communicating with me and her team with the sweetest, humblest soul, she made me feel ashamed to complain of being tired.”


“Her goal color was a silver icy blonde to surprise everyone at the 2020 Oscars,” Martin said. “Jane was extremely happy for getting her dream hair that took her a while to find a colorist that can do it perfectly in a very painless process.”

Showing off her true beauty, Fonda appeared at the Oscars wearing a ravishing red dress. Even at the age of 82, the legendary actress and climate activist has a figure that even many people in their twenties strive to have.

Flowing perfectly with her entire look was Jane Fonda's short gray hair. The red dress came from the Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture collection. Jane paired the long-sleeved sequined gown with simple hoop earrings. She also walked on stage with a red coat slung over her shoulder.

Some savvy to Fonda's previous looks may have noticed that the red dress seemed familiar. This is because Jane wore the exact dress six years ago at the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival. She mirrored the same eloquence that she carries now.

Despite having worn the same dress, Jane's Oscar look was able to achieve a slightly differently flair thanks to her new hair and some accessories. Jane Fonda inspires many and therefore, her appearance at the Oscars was notable. She recycled her old dress despite the red carpet pressure.
