The Vampire Diaries star showed off her blonde ombre locks when she hit the carpet at the CW Upfronts in New York City Thursday, wearing her hair in textured waves.
To complete the look, Nina rocked a low-cut, bejeweled Alberta Ferretti black blazer and skirt and gold Christian Louboutin strappy stilettos. Although she hasn't gone fully blonde (yet), this is a big step away from the dark brown hair color Nina has been known for while she's starred on the CW show.
As for why she changed up her look, the 25-year-old actress told E! News her new hair color is for an upcoming role in Final Girls. "I didn't think I would have any shade of true true blonde in my hair, but now I guess I do. Never say never," she said with a laugh. "It's for a part. It's for a character and I do like it. That's what I love about acting. You get to do and try things you probably never would have otherwise. I never thought I would do this but now I kind of love it."
Don't expect Nina to go from ombre blonde to fully blonde just yet though. The thesp said she'll be dyeing it back to brown as soon as she can.
