What’s a purple-haired girl to do when it seems like everyone in Hollywood is jumping on the lilac locks bandwagon? If you’re Nicole Richie, you decide to try something new — like debuting your bright blue hair hue on Good Morning America Monday.

The star, who first went lavender back in March, has been very candid about her relaxed approach to the bright color, attributing the initial change to a request from her 6-year-old daughter and saying that she felt the same purple as she did blonde. And in that same interview, she said that her purple hair was a spur of the moment decision, so it was impossible to say whether she’d stick with it for the whole summer. And now we have our answer.

Richie made the morning-show rounds to discuss her new Vh1 series, Candidly Nicole, and she showed off her vivid teal strands there. She had her hair in one of her favorite styles — a pulled-back bun with loose bangs — though she did adjust her makeup to be a little icier to go with the frostier blue hue. And she offset the new style with a simple black-and-white outfit.

Just a bad picture in general. Her face looks contorted. Way to go People! Posting the worst pic just to have the trolls come out of the woodwork.

I’ve always rather liked her, but when I saw her on GMA today all I could think was that she did not look well. Girl, gain a few pounds!
