Emma Roberts Just Showed Us What "Smoky Quartz" Hair Looks Like

The hair-color chameleon has a brand-new look.

At Paris Fashion Week, she had fiery red hair. But now, just a couple weeks later, Emma Roberts has a totally different look. Let's compare, Shall we? First, here's a throwback to Emma's mane—and sharp outfit—at Chloe's Fall 2017 show.

Emma used the photo to announce her role in an upcoming film, but also—for our hair-loving purposes—to introduce us to the "smoky quartz" hue. Smoky quartz? Where did this hot new color come from? (Look, if Emma's rocking it, it's hot.)

"I believe the trend just started, because Emma made up the name 'smoky quartz,'" Emma's stylist Nikki Lee, who co-owns Nine Zero One salon, told The Lookbook. "She had to go brown for her next role, but we didn't want it to be a basic brown. So, we smoked her out!"

Nikki described the smoky brown color as: "the perfect balance of warm and cool, which is great for Emma's skin tone." But, the hue's not just for the Scream Queens actress: "The color is pretty universal," Nikki says. "Most can pull it off." (Hear that? That's your okay to Pinterest this and take it your stylist pronto.)

Because Emma's last color was red, her blonde hair was already filled—and that made the latest dye job pretty simple, Nikki says. To maintain the color, she recommends using a purple shampoo like Unite Blonda. Wait. Isn't that for blondes?

"A great way to make sure you keep a beautiful brunette color without going brassy is to use a purple shampoo," Nikki insists. "People think purple shampoo is for blondes only, but it actually does wonders for brunettes!"
