Nikki Reed may be sad to put to rest her role as Rosalie Hale in the Twilight series, but the actress is more than happy to bid adieu to the vampire’s iconic blonde locks — and for good reason.

At the Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part I premiere in Los Angeles Monday night, the newlywed told PEOPLE she had to sport a blonde wig for New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn after dying her hair for the original Twilight film. “Most of my hair fell out, which is why they wigged me,” she explained. “It’s hard on the hair.

“I don’t miss being a blonde,” she continued. “I do miss Rosalie.”

Despite her bad experience with going blonde, Reed doesn’t discount the possibility of taking the plunge again in the future.

“Never say never — possibly for something else,” she said. “But it would have to be something I really love.” Tell us: Have you ever had a bad hair coloring experience?
