With all the buzz surrounding the Gossip Girl reboot, Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) has been top of mind this week. Fans of the iconic headband-wearing ‘Queen B’ will know that since the show wrapped in 2012, Leighton married O.C star Adam Brody (Seth Cohen) welcoming daughter Arlo Day in 2015.

The 33-year-old has also dabbled with a slate of hairstyles - shaking off her Upper East Side alter ego - and most recently rocked a bold platinum hue. Since her Gossip Girl days, Meester has been every shade of blonde from icy blonde to dark roots with heavy highlights but shocked us all this week by returning to what we think of as her signature shade: Glossy, Blair Waldorf brunette.

Celebrity colourist Justin Anderson shared Meester's fresh bob hair to his Instagram pageAnderson revealed every step of the colouring process on his Instagram Stories, showing how he removed the bright-blonde balayage highlights to transition the colour to a shiny, dimensional brunette. Instead of using hair dye, Anderson actually used a shine gloss to deposit colour through her mane.
