Sha’Carri Richardson Has Gone Full Platinum Blonde

Athlete Sha’Carri Richardson is changing up her signature hair color. As noted by Allure, the runner, whose bright red and orange hair was as flame-worthy as her sprints, just shared a video to debut her stunning new hairdo, now featuring a bright platinum blonde shade. 

In the video, Sha’Carri sits in the stylist’s chair lip-syncing to a Nicki Minaj clip where the rapper says, “I took some time off to rest, but now it’s game time, b*tches. You have no idea.” While Sha’Carri talks, her stylist removes the cape, and voilà! Her new look is revealed.

Gone is the orange-red color Sha’Carri was known for and, in its place, super-long icy white platinum waves. But that’s not all. Underneath the blonde wig, there’s a surprise — Sha’Carri’s under layers have been dyed bright blue. In a shot posted by her stylist, Brianna Renee the Lace Tamer, you can see that Sha’Carri is also rocking a subtle ice blue color near the ends, with the darker blue shade hidden underneath so it’s visible when she flips her hair or pulls it up. Sha’Carri also changes into a matching blue Nike top and shorts to complement the new color.

Platinum blonde hair has been a trending shade for celebrities for several years, with everyone from Megan Thee Stallion to Selena Gomez trying out the super-pale shade so it only makes sense for a trendsetter like Sha’Carri to try it out.

Aside from her breathtaking ‘dos, Sha’Carri has also become known for her long, fluttery lashes and her manicures, which throw it back to the legendary sprinter and fastest woman of all time Florence Griffith Joyner, aka Flo-Jo. “Flo-Jo came to the track and knew she was going to dominate,” Sha’Carri said in June. “The way she did that was graceful. I always liked that. If the amazing Flo-Jo had long nails, there was no excuse why I couldn’t have long nails.”

We can’t wait to see the bright streak of platinum cascading behind Sha’Carri as she embarks on another blazing-fast sprint.
