To branch out into new directs the gorgeous actress with naturally straight, medium thick strands signed to work with a modeling agency.
Her decision approximately two years ago was triggered by a need to recreate herself like fellow actor Daniel Radcliffe did when he performed Equus on Broadway.
When questioned about her model mode the lovely 19 year old said "fashion's great because you're able to recreate yourself whenever you want." She explained "my way of getting casting directors to look at me in a slightly different way was modeling."
Another form of recreation will come in the Fall of 2009 when Emma moves to the US to attend university. She has told the media she is looking forward to some time out of the limelight.

Emma's gorgeous base hair color is a light brown toasted base with rich golden-blonde multi-dimensional highlights and some vanilla to baby-blonde highlights painted throughout the end sections of her strands.
This hair color design provides a beautiful looking natural fading of colors from a darker brunette base to lighter baby blonde ends as if Emma has been hanging out at the beach or growing out a former blonde base.
Needless to say her gorgeous natural fade looks very beautiful.

Emma's hair color works fabulously because it has depth and variation. It is very compatible with her skin tone and her eye color."
Don't Try This At Home
First ask your professional hair colorist if your skin and eye tones are compatible with the light toasted brown base and the vanilla blonde highlights. If not, ask your haircolorist for tones which are custom designed to flatter your skin and eyes.
Don't try to recreate a multi-dimensional haircolor look like Emma's at home since the highlights can get tricky.

If you desire more dimension and variation of color consider having multi-layered darker lowlights interwoven throughout the base.
