Hilary Duff has brand spanking new hair. Again.
Not too long ago, we unveilled the Nickelodeon star’s luscious new mermaid locks. Yup, this blonde bombshell decided she was too cool for icey tresses, and went for a marine green dye job.
It was a bold, and completely unexpected, move.
But it seems that the decision was short-lived, as now the 27-year-old has debuted a completely new shade on her Instagram account. Hello, Barbie pink dip dye.
When we first saw the snaps of Hilary’s mermaid tresses a few weeks back, we wondered if the Lizzie McGuire star had taken inspiration from the youngest Kardashian, who is famed for her tumbling teal locks that launched her into the business world of extensions.
In the snap that showed off her colour change to the world, the star was wearing white ripped skinny jeans and pointed court shoes – it seemed she was taking on Kylie Jenner’s style, too.
But she later admitted, “I did hear the Kylie Jenner comparisons right when I dyed my hair. I was like ‘Oh no!’ I didn’t know she had green hair, but the color was similar.” Speaking with E! News, she went on: “I think it looked amazing and she’s a trendsetter and I’m happy to be in that company.”
It’s very coincidental, then, that her latest pink hair change comes just days after the Jenner sister sported a bubblegum ‘do at Coachella.
But if it wasn’t Kylie Jenner, what did inspire her to ditch her blonde bombshell look in favour of these colourful new shades?
Speaking on the Ellen Degeneres Show, the star revealed: “I’ve never done anything like this and I was just in Cabo with my son and I was staring at the ocean and I was like I want that on my head. So this happened.”
Sounds totally reasonable to us. Who wouldn’t want a permanent reminder of a summer day dream?
And that’s not the only reason behind the drastic makeover.
In another appearance to promote her new TV series, Younger, she delved even deeper into her reasons for going aqua. During filming she lived in Brooklyn, and she admits, “I think it rubbed off on me because I have blue hair now!”
The actress’ co-star Nico Tortorella also followed suit, appearing to have ‘done a Duff’, dying his hair the very same colour.
Do we spy a new celebrity wave coming our way?
We wonder what colour may be coming next…
