When it comes to Beyoncé‘s hair-related decisions, we’re always on board — but this time, she’s serving up even more hair envy than usual. From the looks of things, Queen Bey jumped on the platinum bandwagon this weekend, and we’ve got all the details from her colorist, Rita Hazan.

The star posted a series of photos on Instagram yesterday (including a super-cute snap with Blue Ivy). The first of the few, a glam close-up, flaunted noticeably lighter, silky platinum ombré waves.

“It was Beyoncé’s idea. She said, ‘lets go super blonde, the blondest you can make it,'” Hazan tells PeopleStyle of the change.

The 34-year-old singer is definitely not shy when it comes to bleach — we’re used to seeing her with golden blonde locks, which she’s been rocking for a while now.

And while we were definitely into that look, the old-Hollywood vibe that she’s giving us this go-around is definitely topping the charts.

“I always love the idea of switching it up and going lighter for the fall and winter,” Hazan adds. “You can always go for a glamorous and sexy icy blonde.”

This change is by far the lightest we’ve seen her strands since 2013, when she revealed bright platinum curls for the first time.

“We’ve been gradually making her blonder, so it was a natural next step to just go for it and bring her to the lightest she’s ever been,” says Hazan.

We’re totally on board — but it doesn’t seem like this is the end of the singer’s major hair changes.

“[This shade] works for her skin tone and has a good balance of warmth and depth. It’s also a big departure from what she’s done before. However, I do have some fun ideas for the future.”

More fun than this? We can’t wait.
