Abigail Breslin Goes Baby-Worthy Brunette in Time for Dirty Dancing Remake


Bye-bye, Chanel No. 5 — and hello, Baby! Abigail Breslin ditched her platinum blonde hair color in favor of a brunette shade for her role as Baby in ABC’s Dirty Dancing remake.

Breslin, 19, unveiled the makeover in a series of photos shared via Instagram on March 18 and 19. But on March 27, she gave fans a proper view via a mirror selfie, which she captioned, “Mirror selfie feat. brown hair feat. reminder nobody puts baby in the corner.”
