Emma Roberts Looks Just Like Julia Roberts After New Blonde Hairstyle

It runs in the family!

We are talking about both talent and good looks when it comes to Julia Roberts and her niece Emma Roberts.

The 28-year-old American Horror Story actress recently debuted a wavy, blonde hair-do (a change from her last brunette look) which left fans doing a double take to make sure they weren’t seeing a younger Julia Roberts.

Emma is the daughter of actor Eric Roberts and grew up hanging out on the film sets of her Oscar-winning aunt, Julia. This sparked a desire for acting on the young Emma as well and she grew up to be a well-known actress on her own right.

After Emma debuted her “sunrise blonde & whisper waves,” the comments’ section of her Instagram post was flooded with comments awed at the two women’s resemblance.

“You look so much like Julia in this omg,” wrote one person, while another thought she looked like her former Scream Queens character, Chanel Oberlin, writing: “CHANEL OBERLIN IS BACK. 💁”

Though this isn’t the first time Emma has rocked blonde hair, perhaps now that she is older, the resemblance was more obvious.

Her hair-colorist was Nikki Lee, who is also the co-founder of the L.A-based salon Nine Zero One, a favorite among celebrities. He spoke in a press release on how he managed to achieve her shade.

“Emma needed to go light again for an upcoming project she’s working on. We wanted to add our own twist to it and create a color she’s never been before,” Lee explained. “Instead of doing the typical bright blonde we went for a ‘boho sunrise tone.’ Something that felt a bit more undone and effortless.”

And considering she very recently sported a short haircut, he and hairstylist Riawna Capri also added hair extensions for more volume and length.

Goes without saying, both women look gorgeous!
