Well, it's official — spring is shaping up to be the season of the blondes. Countless celebrities including Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Abigail Breslin, and Sarah Hyland have ditched their dark roots for golden hair, proving that lighter locks are definitely here to stay. Now, a new member has been inducted into the blonde club, or shall I say re-inducted. Christina Hendricks dyed her hair blonde, but it actually happens to be closer to her natural shade than her signature fiery red mane.

As a deranged Mad Men fan, it's kind of hard to see Hendricks as a blonde. After all, that red hair is what made her character, Joan Holloway, the firecracker badass chick that she is (at least IMO). But with the upcoming closing of the series after an impressive seven seasons, she probably just felt it was time for a change — hey, I don't blame her. The hair transformation is definitely noteworthy, and will for sure get people buzzing about her. 

As the ambassador of expert hair color company, Clairol Nice 'N Easy, Hendricks opted for a natural medium to golden blonde shade that incorporates subtle hints of strawberry blonde — still holding on to just a little bit of her crimson color that we all love so much. I bet you didn't know the actress is actually a natural blonde, did you? Yeah, me neither. But it's no wonder that the pale hue suits her so well! Then again, she could dye her hair any color of the rainbow and still look amazing — she can literally pull off anything. 

Christina used Nice 'N Easy's Permanent Color in Natural Medium Golden Blonde to achieve the gorgeous new color, so if you're itching for a transformation yourself and want to steal her shade, you totally can.
