Over the years, Emma Roberts has proved she has no fear when it comes to changing up the length, color, and vibe of her hair. From a platinum-blond Elsa braid to a sleek angled bob to a dark-brown Audrey Hepburn updo, you name it, there’s a good chance the Scream Queens star has nailed it. But this is shaping up to be her most eventful hair month ever. In a surprise update to the warm, streaky “desert rose” color—complete with longer extensions—that she debuted less than two weeks ago, Roberts has gone fully red. More specifically, a pale, flushed tone we like to think of as rose gold. Check out the new hue in this Instagram post by hairstylist Nikki Lee, co-owner of Nine Zero One salon in L.A.

It appears she’s actually been wearing the new color for a few days without us noticing (we blame the weekend). Here’s another photo, from an event in Beverly Hills on March 31. In this lighting, you can appreciate that Roberts really is a card-carrying redhead now.


Now compare to her previous blond-highlighted light auburn.

Then flash back to the platinum lob Roberts was wearing just three weeks ago.

Our hair feels exhausted as we contemplate all of the change her hair’s been through. And we’re pretty sure ours would fall out if we tried three new colors and a new length within such a short time period, but as everyone knows, the normal rules of physics/chemistry don’t always apply when we’re talking celebrity beauty. We love where Roberts’ recent hair journey has taken her—this rose gold might be the prettiest shade ever for her delicate skin tone. If our vote counts for anything, we say keep this color—at least for a couple months?
