The former Vampire Diaries star got everyone talking when she posted a shot of herself on Instagram rocking a short, red pixie hair cut with a shocked look on her face. Her long straight brunette locks were nowhere in sight.
As it turns out though, Nina was just playing around with a wig on the set of her upcoming film Crash Pad. "Prettttty sure I look better in Domhnall Gleesons hair than he does. And I clearly have more down time on set than he does. #StuntWig #LateNightShooting #CrashPadMovie," she captioned the photo on Instagram.
Still, there were quite a few people who skipped over her caption, so Nina headed to Twitter to let fans know she was still a brunette. After Capital FM tweeted, "Woah... so @NinaDobrev's had a VERY drastic hairstyle change! EEEK!," Nina tweeted "Did you read my caption? Nope. I was bored on set, goofing around and trying on my costars STUNT WIG."
She added, "My hair is still as long and brown as always...xo."

While most fans breathed a sigh of relief, Nina proved she can rock just about any hairstyle and still slay. Just like she did when she rocked those hot blunt bangs in a photo shoot for Women's Wear Daily last month. #hairgoals
