Watch a new New York City resident get a fashion-girl makeover.

There's no arguing: Your hair is the accessory you wear every. single. day. Once you start thinking that way, it becomes a place to play with fresh looks and changes that signal a new season or a revised version of your personal style. To wit, we gathered a team of celebrity stylists with fashion-world cred and asked them to give a recent NYC transplant a stylish makeover from root to heel, all culminating in a photo shoot with renowned photographer Russell James. Watch her hair color transformation above.
