Dixie Chick goes brunette

Dixie Chick goes brunette–Banjoist Emily Robison tries a new look

Posted on

Color her bad. Dixie Chicks banjoist Emily Robison recently hopped on the brunet bandwagon alongside Gwynie and Cameron, first hatching her new look at the Grammys. And it’s a move that’s raised quite a ruckus. Postings on the country phenoms’ official website are cautiously positive (”It’s something we have to adjust to,” advises Cowgerl 23). But a prankster at Dallas’ country station 99.5 The Wolf sprayed Robison’s hair hot pink on a local billboard. John Barrett, who owns a salon in New York City’s Bergdorf Goodman, calls the new shade ”a strikeout.” Chicks hairstylist Melanie Shelley insists Robison went au naturel (with store-bought color, no less) ”so she could be herself” during the group’s recent hiatus. An added perk: ”She gets so much respect since she’s gotten so dark.” Sounds like something any country girl would dye for.
