Serena Williams Goes a Lighter Shade of Honey Blonde, and We Just Can’t Handle It!

You may know Serena Williams from her amazing talent on the tennis court, as she has successfully established herself as one of the most skillful female tennis players of all time. But what you probably don’t know is the fact that Williams is also very fashion-forward.

Even though it may not seem like Williams pays a lot of attention or cares too much about her outward appearance, considering she is so focused on winning the game, but her sense of style certainly tells a different narrative.

Now, Williams is also stepping up her hair game with a color that has completely blown our mind. While we remember her for the signature honey blonde hair color that she has sported for the longest of time, Williams has kept up with the spirit of summer and gone for a much lighter shade, completely transforming her entire appearance in a much-welcome makeover that is perfectly suitable for this warm season.

On The Cover

It is no secret that Williams is still among the most attractive women in sports at this time and, combined with her immense popularity around the world, it is a no-brainer that she can often be found on the covers of many coveted magazines, including, of course, Sports Illustrated.

The recent issue of the Sports Illustrated magazine called Fashionable 50 sported Williams on the cover wearing a long coat with no trousers, and also parrot-green heels which make her perfectly toned legs stand out.

While attending the official launch of this cover, the sports celebrity did not shy away from flaunting a major change in her physical appearance, the golden hair color. This looked drastically different from her hair color on the cover of the magazine, which was still the honey blonde shade that has been so iconic for Williams. Williams combined her new hairstyle with a plain-textured cream-colored outfit, making it stand out even more.

Naturally, it would be a shame if we did not mention the person behind Williams’ transformation, Vernon Francois. As her stylist, Francois obviously knew what color would work best for Williams the best, and so he gave her one that does not stand out too much and yet still gives her that extra appeal which was arguably lacking with her previous shade.

Her look at the launch event was further accentuated by adding some light curls to her hairstyle below the roots (that are still a dark-brown shade), which gave the new color that much-needed volume to effectively shine in the spotlight.

Williams has had a much darker shade of honey blonde in the past, as was seen during her most recent performance at Wimbledon. At that time, the honey blonde color started almost halfway below the roots, shining profusely as they were brought upwards in a ponytail and hence caught the flash of the camera.

But this new style is not by chance, as Williams also has a good eye for what is fashionable, at least according to her Sports Illustrated interview. According to her, she tries to make a statement with her fashion choices.
