Emma Roberts has really earned the title of hair chameleon. This year alone she’s switched between brunette, smokey quartz, and blonde, as well as chopping her locks into a textured bob. Now she’s changed it up again with an icy hue perfect for the coming season — and apparently, it is was the end point all along.

Emma Roberts Blonde Hair

It turns out that the strawberry flaxen gold the American Horror Story actress debuted on Instagram back in August, while a stunning shade, was just a stepping stone. Hairstylist Riawna Capri explains that the latest dye job was Roberts’ third hair-lightening appointment (the second one wasn’t posted). “Going from brunette to blonde is a process and it takes time!” Capri said in a statement. “This was Emma’s third blonding appointment since she has been brunette (August 3).” Inspired to make a similarly dramatic makeover? “Always make sure to trim the ends with every appointment when you’re doing a big color change,” Capri advised. “Don’t expect overnight miracles but you can count on ‘3 times a charm’!”

And as for the final result? Capri, who also works with Julianne Hough and Nina Dobrev, dubbed this refreshing, cool blonde shade Champagne Pop. The Nine Zero One co-owner also trimmed up Roberts’ ends to keep her hair healthy — especially important when you’re going lighter — and used Olaplex and Joico LumiShine to achieve the icy blonde tone.
