Raven-Symoné Dyes Hair Purple and Gray, Plus Gets a Bold New Cut!

06/10/2014 at 02:31 PM ET

Is there a “hair changes” memo going around in the inboxes of former Disney stars? Between Demi Lovato‘s multicolor mane change, Vanessa Hudgens’s blue-tipped strands, Debby Ryan’s red-to-blonde overhaul and Ashley Tisdale’s new crop, tons of House of Mouse alumnae have transformed their tresses. Now Raven-Symoné has topped them all, sporting a rainbow-streaked mane and half-shaved do, which she just debuted on Instagram.

The star is taking a break from acting to pursue higher education, and she wanted to start her next chapter with a completely different look. She captioned the above photo, “@a_nicholle hairstyle #rollinwiththehomie. My last Friday in la before I start my life as an #oncampus student! New hair for a new life! #hellyea.”

The exact hue? Like Lovato, she’s rocking combo of purple and gray highlights with a few colorful streaks added in. “@a_nicholle thanks for a bomb color and cut! A few tracks don’t hurt, ain’t to many tho! Loving my washy purp and grey! Here I come San Fran!”

As for the cut, the star decided to go for a asymmetrical chop on one side and what looks to be a buzz cut on the other. (Shades of Lovato again!) What do you think of her new look? Should she keep it or go back to a more standard shade? Share your thoughts below.

So…a young lady whose only “controversial” moves after being in the public eye since she was three has a) befriended a fellow Disney star b) fallen in love with someone who’s made her happy and c) changed her hair color at a time in her life when she’s choosing to pursue her education (and therefore can be wild and crazy with her hair since there’s no expectation of “professionalism.”)

Gotcha. No story here, people, let’s stop invading her privacy.

I enjoy Raven’s talent and sincerely hope she steps out in the public eye sometime soon in a professional capacity. Until then, I hope she enjoys living the life she’s living to the fullest of happiness!

Raven gave up the right to privacy when she put the pics on insta gram…if she (and all the other stars who complain about their privacy) don’t want ppl to look at them…they need to stop posting stuff on social media
