And the 2019 Oscars Award for best hair drama goes to … Charlize Theron, who stunned onlookers by changing up her signature blond locks in favor of a dark chestnut hue created by renowned celebrity colorist Tracey Cunningham.

The Oscar-winning actress shared an Instagram post of herself alongside her mom before the ceremony where you can clearly see the raven hue, even though the photo itself is in black and white.

The new 'do was actual less than a week old, according to her hairstylist, Adir Abergel. She dyed her hair that week and the last-minute call to cut her hair into a bob happened the same day as the awards ceremony. “Decided to chop it all off before the big moment. #cantwaittoshare #oscars2019 #hairbyadir,” he wrote on Instagram.

Abergel completed the look with waves parted to one side and tucked behind Theron’s one ear. “Hair is your greatest accessory! Changing your hair is best way to transform yourself,” he exclaimed in another post sharing his excitement over seeing his vision come to life.

Theron’s makeup artist, Kate Lee, opted for a seductive, yet fresh, palette of simple eye makeup and a bright red lip, which complemented the rich brown shade as well as her breathtaking light blue Christian Dior gown.
