According to, Dunham’s style change may have been prompted by Sia’s trademark ‘do?  

“Earlier this year while promoting her new album, 1000 Forms of Fear, Sia took an unconventional promotional route, asking others to be the face of her sons in platinum wigs—to match her hair and album cover—as she hid on the sidelines. One of the people she called on was Lena Dunham, who did an interpretive dance and lip-synced to Sia’s lead single ‘Chandelier’ on Late Night with Seth Meyers.”

There are few beauty makeovers as dramatic and nerve-racking, as dyeing your hair platinum blonde, particularly being a brunette. Lightening up – especially if you have dark hair – can be an intimidating process, but based on this recent Hollywood trend, stars continue to suggest that blondes just may have more fun.

The experts at Pravana say it is possible to achieve platinum color while still keeping the integrity of the hair during bleaching. Pravana’s Pure Light Power Lightener gently and effectively lifts and lightens natural hair without affecting its structure. Upkeep for blondes is simple with the Pure Light Brightening Shampoo and Conditioner – a special Dual Ultra-Violet Dye System that neutralizes yellow tones. Keratin amino acids, silk amino acids and wheat protein provide vital protection and strength, while lightweight sunscreens help block the damaging effects of the sun to protect hair.

How to use Pure Light: Mix one part Pure Light Power Lightener to three parts chosen PRAVANA Creme Developer to the desired consistency. Apply to dry hair. Expert tip: Add one NEVO Hydra Pearl in every mixed bowl of Pure Light Power Lightener.
