Get the Formula: Margot Robbie’s Oscars Blonde

Celebrity colorist Jacob Schwartz, who created Margot Robbie’s “Barbie blonde,” reveals the formula for his A-list client’s signature shade with Schwarzkopf Professional products while sharing her 2024 Academy Awards final look on his Instagram.

The “Barbie” star paired her loose, straight blonde locks with a sparkling strapless Versace gown.

“I am so honored to have worked with Margot for this amazing Barbie press run, culminating with tonight’s Oscars,” says Schwarz, who also used Olaplex products to achieve her color. “I used my Spun with Gold technique to create her signature sparkling blonde.”
