California Girl Classic Blonde Highlights:  Angelina Jolie 

Take it from Angelina Jolie: When making a significant aesthetic change,  

it's sometimes possible to make the transition feel much less abrupt by gradually achieving your ideal final form. 

That holds true for radical hairstyle changes, fresh wardrobe additions, and of course, substantial hair color changes. 

This spring, Jolie was spotted with her customary dark waves sporting golden ombré highlights. 

But just in time for the release of her most recent project, 

she has finally given the sunny shade her undivided attention.

The blonde hair on Angelina Jolie is by far the lightest it has been since the 1990s. 

It features bright, nearly platinum money pieces around her face and is styled with stylish layering.
