Gone are the days of opting for darker shades as the temperature drops and lighter ones when the sun is out — especially for Emma Roberts. From transitioning to a deep mid-summer chocolate brown to experimenting with an autumnal red in February, Roberts is always setting hair color precedents and defying seasonal expectations. Now, the 28-year-old actress is embracing a new fall trend: honey blonde.
A couple hours after walking into Nine Zero One hair salon in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Roberts stepped out with new golden waves from celebrity hairstylist Nikki Lee — a major shift after four months of dark locks. According to the stylist herself, Lee gave Emma her new honey look via Joico’s Blonde Life Lightener followed by In Common’s new Crystal Cashmere in-salon treatment for a smooth, damage-free transition.
“Emma is proving that not everything is going to be icy this winter,” Lee told Refinery29. “Instead we’re keeping things warm. Since we knew we wanted to go long with her hair we wanted to make sure the blonde wasn’t platinum-looking.” 
Not only did Roberts switch up her hair color from brunette to blonde, but she also added a few inches along with it, leaving behind her shoulder-brushing chop for long, lustrous extensions. Lee supplemented Roberts’ hair with Great Length Extensions to add length and fullness. “We left her hair long and I added seamless layers and texture — we were thinking renaissance vibes,” Lee said.
After spending some time on set filming this season’s American Horror Story: 1984, the new 'do marks a fresh start for Roberts. Though her brunette phase this year was a crowd favorite, this golden-honey color may be taking the prize as our favorite. Plus, it feels like every time Emma Roberts changes her hair, an exciting new project emerges — so keep your eyes peeled.
