You can take the girl out of Texas, but you can't take the Texas out of the girl. Or, it would seem, the girl's hair.

Stand down, fashionistas, it was all in fun!
The pic was snapped and—we're sure to Jessica's chagrin—disseminated around the Net by Simpson's publicist Lauren Auslander (um, aren't publicists supposed to minimize a star's public embarrassment factor? Our bad).
"Hey @JessicaSimpson nice new 'do for 2011," she tweeted.
The photo itself was reportedly taken at a top-secret magazine shoot over the weekend.
Here's hoping this is the before shot.
