Singer and actress Hilary Duff was cautious during her pregnancy with her second child opting not to dye her hair for the duration. But Banks Violet Bair entered the world in November 2018 and Hilary instantly headed to the salon where she switched up her look and dramatically so.
The star headed into the salon and spiced it up big time with a brand new platinum hue. "Twas a long long day but the mission was accomplished," she wrote on Instagram. And no doubt it was. Going white blonde generally takes many hours but in Hilary's case, the result is so worth it as you can see.
How the new mama managed to make it happen is anyone's guess. But likely Hilary, 31, has hired help in the form of a nanny or a mama of her own to call on.
The details aren't relevant - what is is that she managed to get to the salon within weeks of having a baby and she looks incredible. No wonder she went on to hit the town with her partner and baby daddy Matthew Koma, 31.
The pair shared this cute pic of the two of them pre night out and while Hilary looks suitably new baby mama weary, she's also decidedly glowing and gorgeous. And hello - but HAIR!
Hilary shared the image to her Instagram account and captioned it as follows:
"Mom + Dad ... going out tonight."
Sweet. The new family, including Hilary's older son Luca Cruz Comrie who she co-parents with ex Mike Comrie, is clearly loving every moment with their sweet newborn and to be honest - so are we. Oh and that hair. Yes. We love that too. Who doesn't love a white hot blonde? Nobody that's who.
That said, if you're thinking of going platinum any time soon you might like to consider doing it in stages, says hairdresser Aleks Abadia, of Esstudio Galleria.
"This will decrease your chances of damage and even breakage," he says.

And yes - this is a story about hair. But if you're dying to see the new addition to the family here she is. Swoon.
