Breaking Hair News: Amy Poehler Goes Red!

Alle Connell

Talk about a gorgeous makeover: Amy Poehler, former Parks and Recreation star, bestselling author and our imaginary best friend, has ditched her signature sunny blonde in favor of red hair.

She debuted the look at an event celebrating the 60th Anniversary of Allen Ginsberg’s Howl in Los Angeles on Tuesday night. Though it’s hard to see the finer details of her new shade under these lights, we can tell that it’s a medium coppery color with highlights near her face. This is an excellent way of incorporating a new hair color without going into change-induced mirror shock.

Perhaps this is Poehler’s way of putting the very blonde character of Leslie Knope behind her. Perhaps it’s for a new role. And hey, perhaps she just felt like a change. But being a redhead suits her perfectly; we’re excited to see more of this newly ginger Amy very soon.

Now please enjoy the greatest photo ever taken.
