We’ve seen some crazy hair transformations over the past year, from Charlize Theron’s gothic black bob to Ciara’s daring orange look. While we adored the dramatic changes, this unexpected one from Blake Lively might be one of our all-time favorites.
You’ve probably heard that Lively will be one of the stars of the adaptation of Colleen Hoover’s best-selling novel It Ends with Us. But for a while, people weren’t so sure if it was real news, that is, until Lively confirmed the news by posting a snap of herself rocking a brand new do.

It seems the ever-so-iconic blonde locks we associate with Lively are now gone. Lively is now embracing her inner Blair Waldorf with this new dark brunette (with an auburn) look. She shared the look on her Instagram story on January 27 while wearing Blake lingerie and a red lip. See the photo below:
Now we’ve seen the Simple Favor star darken her hair from time to time, especially during the colder months, to accentuate her skin tone. But this is the first time we’ve seen her with hair this dark, and we’re obsessed. (And I can’t wait to see her portrayal as Lily in It Ends With Us!)

In a previous interview with The Cut, Lively admitted that she’s a somewhat shy person and sees her hair as her “shield.” When asked about doing something as daring as a pixie cut, she said, “Hmm, I don’t know. For me, my hair is like a shield. I’m actually quite a shy person by nature. If you have long hair, you can let your hair down and cover your face.”
Who knows, she’s already stepped out of her comfort zone with this new color, maybe we’ll see more hair transformations from her in the future? Either way, we know she’ll rock it.
