Ashley Greene has been really busy this summer … in the salon.

The actress has been spending quite a bit of QT with her colorist, slowly transforming her rich chestnut shade into a lighter, sun-kissed hue, which she debuted last night on the red carpet at the Mortal Instruments: City of Bones premiere in L.A.

And it’s not Greene’s first foray into the blonde family. She tested out a similar color last summer.

She’s also spent some time in the stylist’s chair: The star has ditched her layers and shaved off a few inches from her ends since June (the middle photo above), opting for a blunt, shoulder-grazing cut.

Think she’ll jump on the #shorthairdontcare bandwagon and test out The Beyoncé or the Coco Cut next? We wouldn’t bet on it, but Greene is certainly moving in that direction.

Tell us: What do you think of Ashley’s lighter locks?
