Reese Witherspoon Has Natural Brown Hair in Throwback Photo
Last week, Lucy Hale, January Jones, and Kerry Washington blessed our timelines with Throwback Thursday photos from their formative years, all of which happened to include epic (and in the case of Jones, adorably questionable) hair. A week later, Reese Witherspoon is here with a #TBT of her own which reveals her real hair color. And no, folks, it is not blonde.
That’s right: The Big Little Lies actress was a full-blown brunette. On Thursday, November 21, she shared a headshot from what appears to be her teenage years with the caption, “Wait… is this my real hair color?!? 🤷🏼♀️ 🤷🏻♀️#tbt #1990s,” joking that even she didn’t remember her actual hue. In the picture, Witherspoon’hair is a medium-brown shade with subtle golden highlights — however, aside from the very minimal highlights, she had no blonde color in her hair.
Fans and fellow celebs were quick to freak out in the comments. Zoë Kravitz, America Ferrera, and Isla Fisher, to name just a few, left messages like, “I love her,” and “Cutie patootie!!!!!” Other commenters pointed out how much Witherspoon looks like her daughter, Ava Phillippe, in the photo. “I thought it was Ava,” wrote one fan, while another offered, “Omg I did a double-take totally thought this was Ava.”
This isn’t the first time Witherspoon’s given people a glimpse at her natural hair color. Earlier this fall, she shared a photo from when she was in elementary school, and fans had a field day over the cuteness. Here’s hoping the actress starts making Throwback Thursday a weekly thing.
