Taking hair color cues from the likes of Kim Kardashian is not how we imagined Johnny Depp spending his days. But, like the classy reality star, he’s gone blonde. The actor debuted his new golden locks last weekend at the BFI Long Film Festival. The look, we hope, is only temporary. It’s most likely for his new roles in the film Into the Woods. We’re not totally feeling it, but in our eyes Johnny does no wrong –– besides that Wino Forever tattoo. Thinking about going blonde? There are several factors to consider.
