When you think of Blake Lively, you immediately think of her trademark gorgeous, blonde mermaid hair. But if her appearance in Age of Adaline taught us anything, it's that Lively can rock any beauty look, no problem.

Such is the case for Lively's latest hair-color change—a darker and richer hue that she has called "bronde," referring to a cross between blonde and brunette. Over the past couple weeks her look seemed to have been gradually darkening, but her latest style looks almost like balayage with soft streaks of lighter hues woven through honey-colored locks. She shared the new style on her Instagram, with the caption: "Brondes have more fun."

Cue the hair envy.
