Emma Roberts has become the ultimate muse for redheads everywhere. Although a natural brunette, Emma has followed in the footsteps of her aunt Julia, experimenting with shades of rouge more times than we can count. Like plenty of other celebrities, she’s also had stints as a blonde and even tried the rose-gold trend last year. But for her latest film, Emma has officially ditched the red roots she’s most known for sporting.
On Instagram, the actress posed in much darker strands—a shade she’s calling smoky quartz—with a fresh trim to match. The hair change comes courtesy of her Emma’s hair guru Nikki Lee of famed LA salon Nine Zero One. Emma and Nikki have teamed up in the past to create unconventional hair colors and their corresponding names, like desert rose and cayenne spice. Since her latest transformation is for a movie role, we’re sure we’ll see Emma back to a different shade in no time, but for now she’s having fun as a brunette.
