On Tuesday, the 28-year-old actress took to Instagram to share a video showing one way she's transforming into character for her upcoming role of Noreen on Netflix's Sweet Magnolias.
In the clip, Spears is sitting in a salon chair as a time lapse shows her transformation from bright blonde to light brunette. The video, which is set to Childish Gambino's track, "Feels Like Summer," shows Spears' impressive multitasking abilities as she feeds her 1-year-old daughter, Ivey, while sitting with her hair in tinfoil.
Spears shares Ivey with her husband, Jamie Waston, and also has an 11-year-old daughter, Maddie, with her ex, Cassie Aldridge.
"Becoming Noreen....... #SweetMagnolias," Spears captioned the clip.
Netflix announced Spears' new role in a tweet earlier this week, marking her first time back on TV since 2008 when she starred in Nickelodeon's Zoey 101.
"@jamielynnspears has joined the cast of #SweetMagnolias, a new series based on the book series by Sherryl Woods," the streaming service tweeted. "Spears will play Noreen Fitzgibbons, a young woman who is determined to build a new life for herself after a series of bad choices."
