Ciara loves experimenting with her hair — so much in fact, that last fall she got bangs just to “match” a Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci dress she wore to the brand’s spring 2016 show. So when she posted throwback pics of her old blonde shade a few days ago, we could tell a mane change was on its way.

On Tuesday, the star Instagrammed a selfie debuting fresh ombré highlights with the caption, “Blondie’s back.”

The new look followed her flashback post, in which the singer reminisced about her “blonde dayz.”

It must be part of Ciara’s pre-Fashion Week ritual to switch up her do. Last season she debuted a choppy lob and the spontaneous fringe.

At the time she told PeopleStyle, “I thought I’d try something different because I’ve been experimenting with the short hair, and I was like, ‘I’m going to try something different every day,’ and that happened to be the bang day. It worked out perfectly with what I was wearing — it’s been fun.”

With New York Fashion Week just getting started, we’re guessing more impromptu styling changes will happen (read: Our eyes will be glued to her Instagram feed.)
