When in New York for Fashion Week, one must always get a new hardo, darling, which is what "Orange is the New Black" star Dascha Polanco did and then some.

The actress, who plays Dayanara Diaz in the hit Netflix series, posted a selfie to her Instagram page on the weekend, showing off her dramatic hair makeover: a purple-and-grey 'do!

"Umm..I'm just saying tho #nyfw #hitmypart," the gorgeous Dominican-native captioned the awesome pic.

So, why the new lavender hue? Dascha told Latina magazine that she loves to experiment with her hair (cause what girl doesn't?):

"You know, I like to take risks and play with my hair," she said. "It's the time to do it, so why not?"

Fair enough. Check out Dascha's New York Fashion Week outfits that she probably planned around her hair:
