Last summer, Ashley Tisdale surprised everyone by chopping off her signature long, blond locks into a choppy lob (and we subsequently shot four different ways to style it, natch). Thus, it only seems fitting that, a year later, she switch things up yet again. This time, however, instead of cutting her hair even shorter (or getting extensions à la her former co-star Vanessa Hudgens), Tisdale shocked everyone by debuting a completely different hair color. See the Instagram photo reveal below:
We’re definitely not used to seeing Tisdale in any hair color other than her sunny Cali blond, but this “strawberry bronde” shade—paired with matte red lipstick and a distressed white tee—seems oddly fitting. The actress says full details will be revealed on @thehautemessdotcom, a soon-to-be-launched website founded by Tisdale herself and featuring the tagline “Marching to the beat of our own high heels & figuring our sh*t out one step at a time.” A fitting notion for this edgier new look, don’t you think?
What do you think of Tisdale’s new hair color? Should she bid adieu to blond for good? Sound off below!
