Little Miss Sunshine is certainly living up to her name! Abigail Breslin stepped out at the Power in Youth event in Universal City, CA with icy platinum strands -- a shade that has been in the works for a few months. The actress was last spotted as a brunette back in March of last year before unveiling her blonde ambition in stages. If you're making a similar shift in shade, slow and steady like Breslin is the way to go, as a gradual change is less stressful for your strands. "If you're naturally dark brown, the colorist must remove brown pigment from your hair with a lightener, and then use a toner to target the shade of blond you want," hairstylist Beth Minardi told InStyle previously. Make sure to space your salon visits out over a few months to prevent your hair from drying out too quickly. Platinum hues also run the risk of going brassy, so use a purple or blue-tinted shampoo or conditioner once a week to counteract the orange tones.
