In a summer beauty move that has us doing a double take, Julia Roberts has ditched her signature auburn locks for a sun-kissed blonde shade. The Oscar winner debuted her lighter strands at a recent fundraiser in Los Angeles, instantly giving us hair envy, and we’re totally here for her warm-weather hair transformation.

Roberts has remained fairly faithful to her rich ginger-brown hair color for decades, with the occasional subtle highlighting here and there. But this new buttery blonde hue is a major departure from her usual hair color—and we can’t get enough of it.

The 56-year-old’s fresh blonde has gorgeous multi-tonal highlights that almost give it a lived-in, balayaged effect.

The vibrant face-framing pieces around her eyes and throughout the front sections brighten up her whole complexion, while the deeper blonde woven through the lengths and ends add gorgeous depth and dimension.

According to her longtime colorist Kadi Lee, achieving Roberts’ sunkissed blonde was a “slow and steady” process focused on keeping her hair healthy. The end result is a multi-tonal, lived-in blonde with gorgeous dimension. Face-framing bright pieces brighten her complexion, while ribbons of deeper blonde woven throughout add depth.

Paired with her glowing tan skin and bright white smile, Roberts’ new blonde shade screams whimsical summer fun. It’s the kind of hair color that instantly breathes vitality and youthfulness into anyone’s look, giving the typically low-key star an extra radiant and playful vibe.

We don’t know if the actress will keep the blonde or if it’s just a short-term style switch-up, but it’s safe to say we’re obsessed either way. Roberts’ new hue proves that taking a walk on the lighter side doesn’t have to be high-maintenance or extreme.

What’s more, the flattering golden tones give us major inspo to go for a similar sun-kissed look this season. Perhaps with a few well-placed highlights around the face or some balayage toward the ends, we too can get the radiant, sunkissed vibe that Roberts is currently rocking with ease.

Whether it’s a full head of flirty blondes or some face-framing money pieces, Roberts reminds us that for summer, at least, blondes have more fun!
