Emma Roberts Has ‘Sunrise Blonde’ Waves Now And We’re Obsessed

She looks just like Aunt Julia

Scream Queens actress Emma Roberts is no stranger to switching up her hairstyle.

Emma’s latest (and most drastic hair transformation) took her decadent hazelnut brown bob back to a sunny, honey tone — and it makes her look like the spitting image of her famous aunt, Julia Roberts.

The summer-ready hue is a multi-tonal medium blonde created by hairstylist Nikki Lee. “Instead of doing the typical bright blonde we went for a ‘boho sunrise tone,'” Lee told Refinery 29.

Lee gave Emma’s longer locks – achieved instantly courtesy of a full head of hair extensions – an “undone and effortless” feel by placing highlights and lowlights throughout the hair – creating a natural lived-in colour.

Roberts shared her new hair on Instagram last night. “Annnnnd we’re back Sunrise blonde & whisper waves @nikkilee901 @riawna@ninezeroone,” she captioned the post.

Lee took all the necessary precautions with Emma to ward against blonde breakage. “With the help of Joico Blonde Life lightener and my go-to Olaplex, I was able to keep her hair in great condition,” she explains.
