Close

Mindy Kaling has a new look! The star of "The Mindy Project" revealed a new ombre hair color on both Instagram and at the Fox All-Star Party on January 17.

Mindy first showed off her new 'do with a cute Instagram photo captioned, "I'm blonde now guys, deal with it. @clarisshair &@kateydenno getting me ready for my new life as a R&B singer. Sparkle by @vitafede."

Mindy later explained the change to E! Online, saying, "I sort of felt like blond hair should just not be for Caucasian women. I don't know, I kind of just wanted to do it!"

"It's just something I've wanted to do the past couple of months," she added. "And then I was like, why not? It's not really, really blonde."

"Rihanna has been rocking blond hair on and off for a long time," she said. "I really like how it looks on her."

Mindy revealed that her character Mindy Lahiri will keep the look, too. "I think she will," she said. "At least I didn't run it by anybody, I hope that's OK!"
