She's ba-aaack! After a long run as a brunette, Ciara is reprising the blonde ombre our hair makeover dreams our made of. The star worked various golden ombre effects on and off from 2011 to 2015, and we figured something was up when she posted a #tbt last week of her solid blonde hue.

Her gorgeous selfie posted to Instagram on Tuesday confirmed our beliefs; but to be fair, she did drop a not-so-subtle hint about an impending change during a previous chat. "I definitely will go back blonde," she told InStyle back in November. "I loved the blonde era because we tried a lot of things style-wise that were really fun. I think my blonde hair and my curly hair are definitely two of my favorite looks." The feeling is mutual.
