Olivia Wilde’s new hair is like NOTHING we’ve seen from her before

Bye bye, balayage

Besides going super-blonde for a hot few minutes back in the early 2000s (remember her stint on The O.C. as Alex?) and 2012, Olivia Wilde has typically played it pretty straight with her haircut and colour.

Usually sticking to medium-to-long dark hair with subtle ombre ends, the Vinyl star hasn’t made a drastic hair change in years.

Until now, that is. 

Taking to Instagram, the 32-year-old mum-of-two debuted a haircut and colour unlike anything we’ve seen from her before.

Look at those dark roots! The platinum blonde ends! It’s the edgy style we never saw coming from Olivia, and it’s a pretty exciting departure from her go-to subtle look. 

The short style and blunt cut reminds us of Margot Robbie’s own edgy cut from back in 2015, while the striking contrast in colour is quite reminiscent of Kristen Stewart when she was between root touch-ups last year.
