A Closer Look at Nicola Coughlan’s Hair

Published 13th Jun 2024 by Josie Jackson

Nicola Coughlan is a prime example that a person can suit multiple hair colours; known for her roles in Derry Girls and Bridgerton, the Irish actress has been known to rock both blonde locks and copper curls. If you have a client that’s thinking about switching up their look, but is worried that something new might not suit them, Nicola is the perfect inspiration. Here, we take a deep dive through the star’s Instagram, taking a closer look at her most memorable hair looks…

Copper Curls in Bridgerton  

While Nicola Coughlan’s natural hair colour is dirty blonde, the bright copper tresses of her Bridgerton character Penelope Featherington perfectly complement her soft porcelain complexion. Did you know that while filming season 3, Nicola wore seven different wigs, rumored to cost around $8,000 each?

The Cowboy Copper hair trend could be the perfect option for your clients looking to try a bold new look.

Honey and Beige Blonde

When she's not filming Bridgerton, Nicola has been seen sporting this goregous honey beige blonde.

Strawberry Blonde

The best of both worlds, Nicola has also tried her hand at strawberry blonde. You can find out more about how to achieve this tone on your clients here.

Full Fringe

While playing teen Clare Devlin in Derry Girls, her hair was cut into a full fringe, which begs the question: is there any hair look that Nicola Coughlan can't pull off?
