The New York Post chatted with Britney Spears’ hairstylist Kevin Mancuso after the singer transformed her color from blonde to brunette. “We’d been talking about making a big change, both in cut and color,” he said. “We decided the whole idea would be to give it a jagged edge, both hard and beautiful at the same time.” Lauren Solomon, a New York image consultant, says Spears’ new hair color is a bid for attention. “We have not heard much about her recently and she had to do something to get her back in the spotlight. A new, dark sultry look instead of the blond flighty look is going to get a whole new message in the media,” she says.
