Playing Debby Ryan Debuts New Hair Color, Offers to Replace Zayn in One Direction

Debby Ryan rocked a new hair color on the orange carpet at Saturday's Kids' Choice Awards in Los Angeles.

The Jessie star debuted her new lavender locks and revealed to ETonline she just let her hairstylist Kristin Ess "do whatever" before she realized they were going for an entirely new color.

"I sat in the chair for my hairstylist about three hours ago," she said. "She was like, 'I'm bringing you the shampoo bowl,' and before I knew it I was like, 'Ok, this is what we're doing."

This isn't the first time Ryan has drastically departed from her normal hair, which is somewhere between auburn and bright red. Last year, the singer/actress dyed her hair platinum blonde. "This is the first time I feel like I'm not playing a character. I'm actually Debby," she told Teen Vogue at the time.

Her band, Debby and the Never Ending, released their debut album last June and so we couldn't help but ask who she thinks should replace Zayn Malik in One Direction now that the he has left the group. Without missing a beat, she replied, "Me."
