Zosia Mamet Goes Platinum, Lena Dunham Goes Pixie

Two "Girls" stars unveiled some drastic hair changes this Fashion Week.

"Girls" star Zosia Mamet showed up at Honor's spring 2015 show Thursday sporting a brand new platinum blonde choppy bob (chob?) -- a really big deal because there's just always something shocking about a celebrity going platinum, and perhaps because her (and her character's) hair has been a topic of conversation pretty much since she started the show.

Someone else who might know a bit about this is Mamet's co-star Lena Dunham, who also recently unveiled a fairly drastic blonde dye job -- which apparently just got even more drastic. On Thursday, Dunham attended a Bergdorf Goodman event celebrating Betty Halbreich (about whom she's creating a new HBO show) with an even shorter pixie.

Dunham has said that she likes making drastic hair changes after "Girls" filming wraps, but in Mamet's case, she just wanted a change.

"I just wanted to go blonde," she said simply when we chatted with her at the Honor show. "No, I can’t change my hair while we’re filming, it happens when we’re done, but not for any particular reason. I was just looking for something fun."

It will be interesting to see if and how these hairdos get written into the show the season after next.
