Paris Jackson Makes a Strong Case for “Watermelon” as a New Summer Hair Trend

First came peach; now comes a new farm-stand fruit color.

It was not even a month ago that Paris Jackson debuted new blonde highlights and a style laced with fresh extensions, and she’s already making another change. On Sunday, she was photographed leaving her salon of choice, Los Angeles’s Nine Zero One Salon, with yet another fresh look: burnt-orange beach waves with darker roots and some peachy highlights, cut just below her shoulders.

Stylist Riawna Capri posted a portrait of Jackson to her Instagram, describing the color as “#WatermelonShine.” Paparazzi later captured Jackson Facetiming as she crossed a Los Angeles street (showing off her new hair, perhaps?) and getting gas while grinning at an unnamed observer, because a sharp new look deserves to be seen.

Jackson regularly goes to Nine Zero One when she’s seeking out a change; her previous, blonde update was done by the stylist and salon owner Nikki Lee, while two months before that, she went back to Capri for another color change. In April, she walked away with some subtle peach-colored highlights woven into a dirty-blonde look. “This is not a filter, this is #PeachyParis,” Capri captioned an Instagram. “Feelin peachy,” Jackson wrote below her own selfie. But peach hair has become quite a trend—Emma Roberts, Hailey Baldwin, and Elle Fanning have all tried it out at various points—so naturally it was time for Jackson to upgrade to another summer fruit. It’s August, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to set a new standard for summer hair.
