Breaking Hair News: Dakota Johnson Went Bold and Blonde

Clearly, she needed to lighten up!

Just days after arriving back in Los Angeles after months of filming Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed in Canada and Europe, Dakota Johnson stepped into a West Hollywood salon on Friday (July 22, 2016) and opted for some honey blonde highlights to celebrate the summer sun.

The 26-year-old actress did keep those bangs, Anastasia Steele’s signature look, but her new blonde locks are a welcome departure from the film trilogy’s brunette ingénue.

Johnson went blonde after production wrapped on Fifty Shades of Grey in Sept. 2014 as well, choosing platinum blonde. However, it didn’t last. She was back to a light brown in less than a week.

Let’s hope she stays blonde this time!
