Drew Barrymore must have heard how much we were loving her new, blonder look — because she took the plunge and went platinum.

After gradually transitioning from her dark brunette hue for a few months, the star went to a West Hollywood salon with her pal Emily Blunt (below) for some girl time: Five hours in foils, to be specific, while both lightened up their locks.

And both stars seemed to have a little fun with the paparazzi lurking outside the salon, striking silly poses and getting fits of the giggles — no embarrassment about getting snapped mid-process here at all.

This is the blondest either star has been in quite some time, and we’re loving the lighter hues just in time for summer. We’re almost tempted to book dual salon appointments with our own BFFs for this weekend.

Drew and her BFF Emily Blunt? I don’t think they even know each other.

Emily looks like she’s posing for an Olan Mills portrait :)

Platnium? Ahahahaha…. not quite. It lookes like a level 8 blonde. Plantinum is anywhere from a level 10-12 blonde. The higher the lighter!!!! Drew definitely has a honey blonde color happening. WHO writes these articles? Seriously!!!!!

The both look great with auburn hair. Emily and red undertones go so well, she looked great in the “Devil Wears Prada”.

Drew desperately needs a new hair style and conditioning. The color is not platinum but a brassy yellow.

Dusty on

Platinum? Are we referring to their shoes or something, ’cause their hair ain’t anywhere near platinum.

Nancy on

To me, that seems like a harsh process for dark brown hair. Just my opinion.

Shana on

Thats not even close to being platinum…yall need new reporters that know what theyre talking about

I like drew as a blonde and while I’m sure Emilys turned out great the paparazzi should have laid off and let her have some privacy while in the salon!
