The actor-turned-lifestyle guru revealed in an Instagram video Tuesday that she’d dyed her hair pastel pink.
“Well, because we’re still in quarantine, I had to think of a new and creative way to embarrass my children,” Gellar said in the clip. “Quarancolor!”
Whether or not Gellar’s bubblegum-hued locks left daughter Charlotte, 10, and son Rocky, 7, red-faced is anybody’s guess. The look, however, got heaps of praise from fans, some of whom vowed to follow suit by freshening up their own self-isolation style.
“I could not be happier that Buffy has punk hair! It’s like a dream come true,” one wrote.
Added another, “If it’s good enough for Buffy, it’s good enough for you.”
Gellar, who turned 43 on April 14, is one of many celebrities to experiment with striking new looks while at home during the coronavirus pandemic.
“If the apocalypse comes, beep me,” Gellar wrote, referencing one of her most iconic lines from the hit series.
