Olivia Wilde dyed her hair jet black, and the goth vibe is truly her best look yet

New day, new ‘do!

Because Olivia Wilde has bid adieu to her blonde hair in favor of a gothic-chic jet black tint. Keeping her chin-length chop intact, the 33-year-old actress took to Instagram to showcase her edgy new hair color, and in the process seems to have also revealed her next big theatrical project.

“Dark times call for dark hair,” she captioned the debut Instagram selfies, adding on a clever #1984play to the end.

Ohhh—we totally get Olivia’s decision to swap up her ‘do now. Clearly, she’s hinting that she *may* (although we read that as *totally*) be bringing George Orwell’s 1984 heroine Julia to life on Broadway. Variety did confirm that the dystopian bestseller would be making it’s way to the Big Apple all the way from London this summer, after all. And Olivia’s a world-class actress who’d be perfect for the part.

But back to Olivia and her badass new hairdo, folks. Wilde’s been changing up her hair left and right, chopping off her long ombre into a brighter blonde bob, and now this. But we love the spunky performer’s spontaneity in the beauty department. And clearly, she’s never met a hair color or cut that she couldn’t totally nail!

As for the jet black bob, it’s not exactly what comes to mind when we think of a fresh summer hairdo. But hey, there’s no denying it looks absolutely phenomenal on Miss Wilde!
