Hands up how many of us have been influenced (or very nearly influenced) by Dakota Johnson into getting a full fringe? We thought so. The Fifty Shades of Grey actress has such incredible hair that even long-standing blondes have probably considered going for a darker shade in the hope of looking a little bit more like her. Who knows, perhaps our very own Jamie Dornan might come with the new hue.

Now, Dakota is surprising us all with a hair transformation we didn’t see coming. The change sees her swap her signature, glossy brunette hair for a much shorter platinum blonde look. She’s also had several inches of length taken off the ends of her famously long tresses.

The actress, 33, is pictured in new snaps from the set of her upcoming movie, Daddio. We also can’t help but be a little surprised at how similar Dakota now looks to her famous mum, Melanie Griffith. Mel, 65, is known for her shorter blonde hair, which is probably why her daughter now looks so much like her.

We will say, however, the fact that Dakota’s new blonde shade is for a movie role means she could easily be wearing a wig. Considering a full head of blonde colour could compromise the condition of her amazing natural lengths, we imagine Dakota might have been reluctant to head for a full head of bleach.

The How to Be Single star did go blonde previously for real when she starred in The Social Network. It was her big film debut, before any of the Fifty Shades movies came out, so perhaps she was still finding her signature beauty footing.

Either way, Dakota is certainly proving she isn’t just a one trick pony when it comes to her hair. It seems the star can pull off light, dark and mid-toned hair colours. Jealous? Us?

In other A-list hair news from the week, Cinderella and Mamma Mia actress Lily James also gave us a surprise when she swapped her mid-toned brunette for a “cinnamon spice” copper-tinged hue. Lily debuted the look on Instagram to the delight of her fans.

The hair is the work of celeb hairdresser Christian Wood, who was also quickly flooded with compliments on the look. ““Omg Her hair!! Gorgeous” one admirer posted, while another speaks for all of us by posing the big question: “The colours are insane please can you share the products and numbers used. I want that exact colour.”

We’ll await further info on both Dakota and Lily’s transformations.
