Everything's coming up (desert) rose! Emma Roberts went from a blonde bob hairstyle to long brunette tresses on March 23. But the term "brown" won't do for the Scream Queens actress.

"Change is always a good idea #DesertRose," Roberts, 25, wrote via Instagram, coining a exotic name for her sun-kissed hue. "thanks to @nikkilee901 & @riawnacapri," she added, shouting out her stylists and Nine Zero One cofounders Nikki Lee and Riawna Capri.

The American Horror Story alum, who's back on with her longtime boyfriend and onetime fiancé, Evan Peters, didn't only alter her color, though. She also added extensions to her previously chin-length chop, creating waves that reach past her shoulders.

As for the occasion? Colorist Lee, who also colors Sarah Hyland and Hilary Duff's locks, gave a little insight via her own Instagram page. "Created the most beautiful #DesertRose color for this babe @emmaroberts just in time for #Coachella," she shared. Lee also added the hashtag #TheEmmaRose, suggesting that the makeover was inspired by not only the upcoming music festival, but the actress' middle name as well.
