It looks like this is the summer Lena Dunham is experimenting with her hair — big time. The actress recently chopped off a considerable amount of length, taking to Instagram to show off a brand spanking new pixie cut which looks pretty darn fantastic on her. Dunham’s chop comes at a time when lots of celebs are opting for the cropped look: Katy Perry, Zoe Kravitz, Keke Palmer, and Cara Delevingne are all rocking super short cuts, so Dunham is in really good company.
However, even after such a dramatic haircut, we understand the thirst to try even more styles. After all, hair transformations can be pretty addictive. And it seems Lena has caught the bug, taking to her Instagram page to post images of her with a brand new hairstyle, which also happens to be super trendy right now. Dunham posted a series of selfies of her rocking a mermaid-esque light turquoise and lilac boob-length wig with gray tones, serving “Under the Sea” realness. The actress cast sultry looks to the camera as her side-swept bangs framed her face.

“Very professionally busy trying important looks and styles so plz do not call or write thx,” she captioned the images of her posing in her new hairpiece. Naturally, her fans were really feeling the look, showering Dunham with compliments in the comments section. “You look like an emo mermaid. Absolutely stunning,” one person wrote. “Could that be anymore epic for you? Looks like created spec for that face,” another gushed. “Everyone should feel like a mermaid every now and then,” yet another user commented — and we have to agree!
We can’t lie: We’re obsessed with rainbow, mermaid, unicorn, sunset — basically any kind of unconventional dye job, so we’re hoping to see more fabulously colored wigs on the ‘gram from Ms. Dunham. Come on, Lena, give the people what they want!
