Sorry Gen-Z-ers. The millennial pink hair trend isn’t going anywhere. Take Elle Fanning, for example, who recently debuted a head of fresh bubblegum pink hair that’s sure to be on our end-of-summer Pinterest boards.
The 20-year-old actress—who follows stars, such as Amber Heard, Busy Philipps and Michelle Williams, on the celebrity-pink-hair train—showed off her new hair in an Instagram on Friday. The picture featured the Maleficent star with pastel pink hair, which she parted down the middle and wore in loose, natural-looking waves that fell right below her shoulders. For a more natural look, Fanning kept her roots dark, which gradually transitioned to her light pink hair color.
The actress paired the look with an off-white hoodie, oversized clear glasses and a minimal-makeup face. “Princess Bubblegum,” she wrote in the caption, nodding to the all-pink heroine in Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time.
It’s unclear who colored Fanning’s hair (she didn’t tag a hairstylist) and if her hair is fake or real. Judging from the roots, we have a hard time believing that Fanning’s hair is a wig, but there’s a possibility that she might’ve used a temporary dye, as celebrities, such as Lucy Hale, have fooled us with before.
Either way, Fanning looks gorg with her bubblegum pink hair, and we can’t wait to see more.
