30-year-old Lena had been rocking medium length brunette hair for quite a while, but after finishing filming the final season of Girls, she seemed eager to try something new. The star unveiled her new look to fans on Instagram, posting the above selfie to show off her new ‘do.

In the picture, Lena’s wearing a hoodie, but that didn’t stop us from spotting her new blonde ombre tresses! Her hair was styled into subtle waves, and her trademark full fringe was freshly trimmed with a choppy edge. Credit: @lenadunham

The actress later posted another photo of herself alongside fellow Girls castmates Zosia Mamet, Allison Williams and Jemima Kirke, revealing her new look in all of its glory. In this photo we’re able to see just how long Lena’s hair is now, and we reckon that her new length is down to the help of some trusty hair extensions. Credit: @lenadunham
