Ashley Tisdale just went from blonde to the chocolatiest of browns, and we’re in love

Apparently, ’tis the season for new hairdos! Actually, it’s always an appropriate time to switch up the old hair color, or even to grab the scissors and go snip snip. And on that note, we’re taking detailed notes from Ashley Tisdale.

Yesterday, Tisdale went brunette with an asymmetrical lob and gave us a nice glimpse via Instagram.

We’re just loving this warm, wintery chocolate color and the sprinkling of playful waves. And even though it’s angled in a totally sophisticated way, it still looks super low maintenance (plus, it’s always fun to get into the beach tousling spray).

Her hair looks so healthy, and the brown totally brings out her eyes.

Wanna see this baby from the side?

Incidentally, we also love the jacket Tisdale is wearing…hello badass biker chick! But back to the hair.

Tisdale notes that it was the brainchild of celebrity hairstylist Kristin Ess, whose Instagram account is full of hair inspo. She even has her own hair product line with Target, offering stuff like cleaners, masks and conditioners, if you’re looking to branch out from your go-to products.

We can’t wait for Tisdale to post more pics of her new hair, and in the meantime, we’re just gonna keep on appreciating this awesome human who continuously puts good vibes out into the world.

Yup, feeling totally inspired to go for a different look — whether it’s something bold or something subtle — and smash the rest of our week with everything we’ve got.

Thanks for giving us this confidence boost, girl!
