Lea Michele’s New Haircut Proves The Power Of A Subtle Trim

Share

After lounging seaside with her new husband Zandy Reich for a couple of weeks, Lea Michele has returned from her tropical honeymoon to get back to business. Like anyone, the first thing on this actor's to-do list was a trip to the salon. It looks like a new haircut is precisely what Lea Michele needed to conquer the post-vacation blues.

Michele has been all smiles on Instagram since her March 9 wedding in Napa Valley. She's flooded your feed with photos of palm trees, champagne, and sunsets at the beach, looking sun-kissed and carefree.

Now, it's back to the normal routine for the newlywed and she didn't waste a minute to make an appointment at the celebrity-favorite salon Nine Zero One. Hair guru Nikki Lee — who also takes care of Emma Roberts, Hilary Duff, and Sarah Hyland, among others — posted a photo of Michele on Thurs. showing just how much a subtle cut can transform an entire look.

The actor's highlights were looking brighter than ever in the tropics and her beachy waves cascaded down to her ribs in all those selfies she was posting, but since coming back, she's given her hair a bit of fine tuning.

Lee described Michele's new color as "sunlight brunette" in the caption and called out the subtle chop. Contrary to the blonde highlights she was sporting before, the actor's hair is now what one might describe as chestnut with a touch of golden brown.

Dressed in a soft-pink sweater, the Glee actor debuted the color and cut in her signature tousled waves, parted down the middle as per usual. The caption reads "fresh for spring," which is probably exactly what you were thinking.

While all your friends are going lighter for the forthcoming warm weather, let Michele's new look inspire you to go dark. Her subtle trim and toning are the perfect combination for a hair refresh this spring.
