Tricia Helfer built her career being a statuesque blonde bombshell, but now she is turning heads as a smouldering brunette. Looking every inch the screen siren in a jade dress and light, modern makeup, Tricia was certainly rocking her new color with ease.

Tricia Helfer hairstylesHelfer has fair skin with warm undertones, so her choice of warm chestnut brown hair looks amazing with her complexion and eye color. Her top layers are a deep chestnut color that fades into a warm golden light brown. The style is long, loose and layered which works well with her oblong face shape.
