Alanis Morissette Shows Off New Blond Hair On Instagram (PHOTO)

Alanis Morissette is about to find out if blonds really do have more fun.

In her latest Instagram selfie, the Canadian songstress is seen showing off quite the dramatic new look. Not only did the 40 year old chop her signature long brown locks, she also opted to bleach her hair (save for about three inches of root).

The "Jagged Little Pill" singer captioned her photo by saying, "new hair. girl needed to have a little fun ;) ps-- blondes are, in fact, treated differently. this is one of the many effects of work addiction recovery :) #spontaneity #easybreezy #makeupforlosttime #healing"

The look is definitely different, but we love Alanis for trying something bold. We still think she looks absolutely amazing.

What do you think of her new look?
