Jessica Alba Goes Brunette to Blonde and Back Again Overnight

Looks like Jessica Alba could teach her Barely Lethal assassin character Victoria Knox a thing or two about disguises. The star managed to go from her signature ombré brunette hue to the bright blonde she wears in the film and back to her original shade in the blink of an eye.

On Nov. 24, Alba posted a photo of herself sporting much lighter locks and looking ready for a nap in her trailer. “#victoriaknox #selfie @barelylethalmovie taking a break btwn takes -hiding out in a rm -all this #action and #stunts r exhausting,” she wrote. (Um, no kidding — this certainly looks pretty challenging.)

Then the next day, she was back to her roots (so to speak), posting another selfie while wearing a new Jennifer Zeuner necklace, no trace of her blonde shade to be seen.

A quick tour of Alba’s Instagram shows she’s been back-and-forth between the super-light locks and her normal hue for a few weeks while shooting, so it’s clearly not something permanent (though we think she should consider making it official!). We’d love to have our own glam squad to give us overnight blonde locks whenever we were feeling like a change!

What do you think of Alba as a blonde? Think she should go for it permanently?

Looks like a hair piece or part of a lace front wig to me. Not a simple rinse-out solution.

Some of the Hollywood people are so self centered, it’s either laughable or sad.

you can see the lace from her wig in the blonde picture. so yeah, the blonde is a lacefront wig.

Jessica is so pretty just the way she is! I love her as a brunette.

Tess on

And this is newsworthy why?

Pat on

never cared for the blond hair with black roots and eyebrows look

Patti on

Rachel on

Tick tock, until her hair falls out!

I really like the blond on her. It’s something different. She should do a medium blond, not platinum like she did for fantastic four and not her usual brown. Something in between. She’s the most beautiful woman on the planet. Really think her husband is so blah looking I know it’s about hair but had to say!

She’s a beautiful woman, but when she’s blonde, it makes her look sallow. It’s like when Asians try to go blonde — not a good look — and I’m Asian. Mother Nature usually doesn’t get it wrong: stick close to your natural hair color (you can lighten up or darken a bit, but nothing too drastic) and you really can’t go wrong.
