AceShowbiz - Sarah Michelle Gellar has an interesting reason for her recent major hair transformation. Having been stuck in quarantine because of the coronavirus pandemic, the former "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" star ditched her blonde bob for a makeover she dubbed "Quaran-color."
Taking to her Instagram account on Tuesday, April 28, the 43-year-old showed off her medium-length hair that has been dyed bright rose-gold shade. In the video post, she revealed why she made the drastic change to her tresses. "Well, because we're still in quarantine, I had to think of a new and creative way to embarrass my children," she spilled. "Quaran-color!"
In the accompanying caption of the post, the "Cruel Intentions" actress added two hashtags, "#roseallday" and "#quarancolor." She also noted that 10-year-old Charlotte Grace and 7-year-old Rocky James, her children with actor husband Freddie Prinze Jr., needed to wait "until it fades out."
While she joked about embarrassing her children with her new 'do, Sarah's new look apparently delighted fans. One commented, "Stop why does it actually suit you?!" A second one wrote, "Yessss!! I've been so tempted to do something like this too! My kids would be mortified (especially the 19 year-old). You look awesome!!" Others simply called her "beautiful" and stated that they "love" it.
Less than a week earlier, the "I Know What You Did Last Summer" actress pondered over at-home makeover amid the lockdown. On Thursday, April 23, she posted a meme roasting the infamous bangs she rocked in the 1998 Christmas special episode of "Buffy".
While her meme read, "How some of y'alls quarantine haircuts are looking", the Golden Globe-nominated actress shared her own thought by writing, "What's funny is, I was just contemplating an at home haircut."
Sarah was not the only celebrities giving herself hair transformation while in self-isolation. Her "I Know What You Did Last Summer" co-star, Jennifer Love Hewitt, also dyed her hair pink in early April. Posting a photo of her new look, she wrote on Instagram, "The smile of a girl who just did at home hot pink highlights because what else can I do right now!"
