Nicole Kidman's New Red Hairstyle For The Undoing is an Eyes Wide Shut–Era
When you’re Nicole Kidman and you’re starring on multiple HBO dramas, how do
you tell them apart? With a radical hair transformation, naturally! Shortly
following the announcement that the “limited" series Big Little Lies is
actually not so limited and would be returning to HBO in June of this year,
the show’s lead actress and producer launched herself into filming yet
another HBO prestige series—The Undoing with Hugh Grant, based on the novel
You Should Have Known by Hanff Korelitz—and, for her role, she traded in her
blonde waves for a chest-length red perm.
The actress was spotted filming The Undoing, in which she plays a therapist
on the cusp of publishing her first book when her husband goes missing, on
New York’s Upper East Side this week, costumed in a burgundy trench—velvet?
horsehair?—with coordinating knee-high boots. But, while relatively fresh,
the hairstyle wasn’t actually an unfamiliar one for Kidman—instead, it
recalled the red curls that haloed her for much of the ’90s and into the
early ’00s, from her appearances on the red carpet for the Academy Awards
and films like Days of Thunder to her parts on screen in Eyes Wide Shut and
Moulin Rouge. She was blonde in To Die For, but that look didn’t make itself
permanent till around the time of Cold Mountain and Dogville in the mid-’00s.

Kidman has been frank about the ways that the physical transformations that
accompany immersing herself in a role help her get into character. For
Destroyer, the recent Karyn Kusama–directed cop drama, she “ended up just
never taking” off the jeans and leather jacket that her tormented character
also existed in; she also wore substantial prosthetics that Jezebel described
as “absurd” but maybe weren’t actually intended to be especially
realistic. She did the prosthetics thing, too, for The Hours, in which she
played Virginia Woolf, and has periodically gone back to red hair for various
roles over the years—including for Big Little Lies, in which her hair’s
more of a smooth copper than a deep red, and flat-pressed rather than curled.
Compared to Destroyer, a little hair transformation is practically nothing.
