Ashley Olsen Looks A Little Different

by May Sofi

Yet another Hollywood starlet has gone super blonde. Ashley Olsen dyed her hair platinum blonde, following the example of Karlie Kloss, Emma Roberts, and Kristen Stewart, who have all been rocking the bleached look lately. When it comes to hair, platinum is totally the new black.

The 30-year-old was spotted at the flagship store opening of Elizabeth and James in Los Angeles, according to PopSugar, and her hair was noticeable lighter than what it used to be. She flaunted an icy, almost white-blonde hue that totally made her stand out in the crowd, not to mention differentiate her from her twin sister, as Refinery 29 points out, who donned a darker more honey-colored shade of blonde. Ashley still rocked her long beachy waves, but the bright new color brings gives her a very different vibe, and it totally suits her.

For as long as we have know Ashley & Mary-Kate Olsen, they have always been a package deal, be it through their endless #twinning in 90s movies or in their joint fashion line, Elizabeth and James. I am sure, then, that the two have struggled to forge their own individual identities, and sporting different hair colors definitely helps to do so, at least in the view of the public eye.

Check out Ashley's new 'do. I'm loving the lighter look on her.

Not sure what made her go platinum, but I hope she sticks with it for a while.

Let's take a look at some other times the two sported different hair looks, because this isn't the first time.

They both went for the bun look, but the varying heights created two different looks.

2. Long & Wavy Vs. Pulled Back

Same shade of blonde, two different styles.

Both Looks are edgy and cool, in very different ways.

4. Beach Waves Vs. Pin Straight

I'm used to seeing the sisters in beachy waves, but stick straight hair is definitely a new look.

5. Dirty Blonde Vs. Platinum Blonde

Remember when Ashley had bangs?

They might be the Olsen twins but that doesn't mean they always have the same taste!
