2. She loved coloring her hair with henna. Even her hairstylist, Irma Kusely, was instructed to keep her hair dye under lock and key. “I call it apricot but a lot of people think of it as red.  It’s not red at all.  It’s a golden apricot color. We used regular hair dye when I did her own hair. We then used as a balance, a henna rinse, which she was famous for,” said Kusely.
