Hayden Panettiere has a juicy update on her hair.

Two weeks after revealing she'd dyed her tresses pink, the actress shared she'd added a pop of green to her 'do.

"Love my new watermelon vibes up top!" she wrote on Instagram Sept. 18 alongside photos of her new style, going on to praise colorist Erick Orellana. "Thanks @erickohair you're the best! Xoxo." 

Hayden also gave a shout-out to hairstylist Rena Calhoun and makeup artist Janice Daoud for her look. However, the transformation may not surprise her fans as the Heroes alum has played with several hair colors and lengths over the years ranging from long and blonde to short and silver.

And earlier this year, Hayden shared some of her hair care secrets. 

"I love just my natural oils, but oils are important," she told Women's Health in a March video. "Kérastase oil. And I sleep with, like, a silk pillowcase to make sure that the breakage doesn't happen. And don't wash it too often. Just let your hair be natural. Let nature do its thing."

Stars' Epic Hair Transformations

However, the style switch-up isn't the only recent change in Hayden's life. The 34-year-old also returned to acting this year and reprised her role of Kirby Reed in Scream VI—with it marking her first performance since her show Nashville ended in 2018.

"I did have to take those four years off, and thank god I did," she told Michael Strahan on a March episode of Good Morning America. "I had to work on myself—my mental health, my physical health, spiritual health. And then when it popped up I was like, I wanna be a part of that again."
