Hilary Duff surprised fans in a big way when she debuted her blue-green "mermaid hair" last week. The 27-year-old actress has been blonde since we first met her back in the Lizzie McGuire days, so really even just brown hair would have shocked us.
Hil dove right into the deep end with this color change, though, and her gamble paid off bigtime 'cause it looks really cool.
During her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday, Hilary revealed the surprising inspiration behind her colorful new 'do.
"I've never done anything like this," she revealed. "I was just in Cabo with Luca and I was staring at the ocean and I was like, 'I want that on my head.' So, this happened."
We love that spontaneous spirit! And seriously, we're kind of obsessed with her new 'do.
So, what did little Luca think about it? "Here's the thing, Luca is very particular about how he likes my hair," she explained. "There is absolutely no buns on my head, no ponytails - I'll have a ponytail, he's like 'hair down mom'...at least he knows what he likes."
As for her current hair color, he's still trying to decide what color it is (and tbh we kind of are, too). Hil refers to it as green, we see it more as blue - but who really cares what color it's officially classified as? It looks awesome!
