Jessica Simpson celebrated her 38th birthday with a (beauty) bang. The singer, known for her blonde hair, sported raspberry red waves for her party at Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles on July 11. Simpson took to Instagram to share photos of her hair transformation alongside her husband Eric Johnson, mom Tina Simpson, and friend and former assistant CaCee Cobb.
The length falls at waist level while above-the-brow bangs frame her face. This bold look leaves us with one question: is it dyed or is it a wig? While we are leaning towards wig, the color is a refreshing change and a bit of mystery only adds to the appeal. Plus, it conveniently matched the decor of the singer’s outdoor soirée, like the rose-filled table centerpieces and the details on her birthday cake.

Over the past decade, we’ve seen Simpson rock a number of hairstyles, like a sleek bob and her signature beachy curls. This look is clearly a departure from her usual fare. She’s in good company with celeb blondes who have gone red at one point or another, like Julianne Hough, Emma Stone and Nicole Kidman, to name a few. Simpson seems to have gone a reddish-pinky-peach for this particular color, and yes ma’am, we’re in love.
If you’re feeling inspired to join the redhead club, consider this benefit: regardless of your skin tone, there is a shade of scarlet that will work for you.
Like they say, another year older, another year wiser — we can’t wait to see more of Simpson’s hair choices to come.
