Not content to let Rachel Bilson corner the brunette-actress-from-teen-soap-who-gets-fake-job market, Gossip Girl‘s Leighton Meester has signed on as a “global ambassador” for Herbal Essences. “The role will feature her in the company’s advertisements, on their website, and on their Facebook page,” Styleite reports.

Unlike Bilson, who doesn’t seem to be the first person you’d think of in connection to sunglasses, Meester does have great hair. I had no idea she was a natural blonde until I read this article. Does this mean Meester’s going to be lathering up some Herbal Essences in the shower for an upcoming commercial? Or perhaps singing her own version of the “she’s got the urge to herbal” jingle?
