2014 Maui Film Festival At Wailea - Day 2

In the midst of our obsession with Emma Roberts‘ murderous character on American Horror Story: Coven, her short, choppy haircut made us pant over her even more. I love how she never shies away from mixing things up in the beauty department, and her newest look is even more fun than the last. Over on her Instagram feed (which I highly recommend following, especially if you’re a fan of bikini pics and celebrities name dropping other celebrities), Emma recently posted a cute, smiley photo to show off her latest hair change. She’s brunette now (again!) and she’s looking awesome.

Captioning the photo with a shoutout to her hairstylist and the adorable hashtag #brunettebaby, Emma looks super happy and cute as hell. The comments are overwhelmingly positive, too, with fans exclaiming in multiple languages that they’re loving her new look. The reviews aren’t entirely positive, though. Beth Shapouri over at Lipstick provides another point of view, writing,

I confess, I’m on the fence about this new shade. It doesn’t look bad on her, but the ash blond she had before was just so glamorous and ethereal. I don’t know that I’m ready to let it go. Roberts appears not to agree, judging how happy she looks.

Hmm. I can see where Beth’s coming from– especially considering how striking Emma’s dark eyebrows look against a lighter hair color– but we’re talking about one of those actresses who changes up her look on a fairly regular basis. She’s not the type to stick with one shade for too long, so by the time we get used to her as a medium brunette, she’ll have moved on to the next color. I like the brown, though, and Emma definitely has enough confidence and red carpet prowess to make anything look awesome. I’m looking forward to seeing what she does with it!
