It’s a tale as old as time: Breakups mean new hairstyles. The latest example being 26-year-old Hilary Duff, who had a total blonde moment earlier this week.

The newly single lady debuted her glam look via Twitter on March 27. “Suuuuper blonde. No extensions @uppercasey murdered my color today 5 hrs. 100+foils #nobiggie,” the former Disney star captioned the closeup of her bright new locks.

We’re not alone in loving the fresh style. As of publishing, the pic had more than 6,000 likes, but it’s unlikely Hilary’s estranged husband, Mike Comrie, is among the followers. While the two, who share a 2-year-old son named Luca, seem to be keeping things cordial, they’re most certainly separated.

Hil and Mike announced their breakup news back in January after more than three years of marriage. A source close to the couple said of the split, “there was no major incident” but rather the pair, who wed in August 2010, “really did drift apart.”

Well, you know what they say: Hair today, gone tomorrow.
