Even American royalty isn’t immune to the color of the season. On Oct. 25, Malia Obama was spotted sans her signature goddess braids and with a new look altogether: red hair. As reported by the Daily Mail, the former first daughter was seen leaving a movie theater with a friend in Los Angeles with her hair styled in loose waves and a gorgeous brown-tinted red color. This is the same shade she wore her braids in, so it’s safe to say that Obama is a big fan of the hue. Striped trousers, a grey tank top, and a cream jacket pulled the rest of the look together, making it look more like she was walking a runway just hanging with friends.

Red has been unofficially dubbed the color of the season and celebrities have been having a field day with it. Megan Fox recently revealed her take on the trend with a new bob haircut and there has been renewed interest in Taylor Swift’s signature red lipstick over the past few weeks as she’s been photographed field-side supporting her new boyfriend, Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs. The color’s resurgence makes sense for a lot of reasons. Cooler tones tend to be complemented by deeper shades, so during the winter months when everything gets, well colder – including the hues in our wardrobes and makeup – it’s fitting that we reach for the bold shade for a pop of color.

Obama’s new look is perfect for people looking for red hair inspiration this fall and winter. If you’re on the hunt for your own version, make sure to Daily Mailtake her picture to your colorist.
