Hilary Duff Has Blue Hair Now

Lizzie McGuire is channeling her inner mermaid.

A formerly blonde Hilary Duff debuted bright blue hair in an Instagram photo Wednesday. It all went down at the celebrity-frequented Nine Zero One Salon in West Hollywood Tuesday night. The 27-year-old starlet thanked colorist Amber Maynard for taking her locks to a whole new color spectrum and "[turning] me into a mermaid."

Maynard shared a palette of rainbow tones on Instagram Tuesday, as well. One turquoise shade (that looks similar to the color of Duff's tresses) was titled "Washed Up Mermaid."

Inspiration chart! I'm totally feeling the Awkward Peach and Washed Out Orange! What color inspires you?!!

Photographers snapped shots of her new hair when she was leaving the Nine Zero One salon on Wednesday.



Duff isn't one to shy away from dramatic changes. Last May, she chopped her long locks into an edgy bob and she frequently experiments with different makeup looks.

“I love that you can just take on a different role,” she told People StyleWatch about switching up her style. “You can just put something on and all of a sudden you’ve morphed into something different. It brings out a tone in your personality and you get to play with that.”
