Move over, pastel hair—there’s a new hair color trend this season. Ruby Rose has taken to Instagram to show off her amazing fresh hue: emerald green. Does this mean jewel-toned hair is going to be the hot look for spring?

Allegedly, the Orange Is the New Black star dyed her hair this color to help her prep for her role in xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, which is set to release in 2017. She first hinted at the possible change last week, posting a picture of herself mid-workout with the caption, “Last day as Ruby. Starting tomorrow as Adele.. xXx transformation to come…”

She later posted photos of the color transformation in progress—done by Brant Mayfield of The Chris McMillan Salon in Beverly Hills—going from brown to blonde and then to green. If you’ve ever dyed your hair a color, you know how long of a process this tends to be. Using PRAVANA Artificial Hair Color Extractor, Manfield gave her a fresh slate for the green, and took her full-on emerald by applying PRAVANA VIVIDs Green. We’re totally digging the fact that she left a bit of root visible, as well. 

In case you didn’t know, we’re major fans of green tresses over here at NYLON, so we’re giving a big thumbs-up to Rose’s new ‘do. She’s been rocking it only for a few days, so we’d like to thank HelloGiggles for bringing this to our attention.
