One more celeb and this purple-gray hair color combo is officially a trend.

Raven-Symoné is the latest star to try the multicolored effect. The former Disney-darling ditched her dark shade in favor of a candy-colored hue on the heels of Demi Lovato, who went for a similar dye job last week.

It seems that the College Road Trip star's vibrant new ‘do is in preparation of her return to campus—this time as an actual student. Raven posted an Instagram picture of her new hair last week, writing, "My last Friday in LA before I start my life as a #oncampus student! New hair for a new life! #hellyea." In another post of her new hair, the star described her "bomb color and cut" as a "washy purp and grey."

The 28-year-old announced her enrollment at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco last month also via Instagram, posting a picture of her student ID captioned: "It's even more official. I'm a student! So happy!"

We get that art school elicits more freedom of expression than most academic instructions, but we're not sold on the Crayola-colored ombré look just yet.

What do you think of Raven's new color?
