Dascha Polanco New York Fashion Week Spring Summer 2014 Hair Dye

Move over, Demi Lovato, there's a new hair chameleon in town. Dascha Polanco, star of Orange is the New Black, debuted a new 'do at the Custo Barcelona during New York Fashion Week and it is killer. The actress changed up her dark locks for a fresher, lavender-inspired hue and we are obsessed. While backstage, the dominicana spilled to us about the change, the show, and the new season of OITNB

Why did you decide to switch up your hair? We love it!

Dascha: You know, I like to take risks and play with my hair. It's the time to do it, so why not?

What did you think of the Custo Barcelona show?

Dascha: Amazing! So full of color, full of life, full of culture. I loved it!

What other shows have you been going to this fashion week?

Dascha: Tracy Reese — that’s my girl — and then Houghton, Custo Barcelona and some others.

(Dash also posted a shot of her 'do on Instagram, writing: "Umm..I'm just saying tho #nyfw #hitmypart.")

What can you tell us about filming the new season of OITNB?

Dascha: It's amazing; get ready for the same unexpected writing, filming. Orange is what it is — one of kind.

While backstage, the beauty also snapped a quick pic with Latina's own Creative Director, Ebby Antigua and Executive Deputy Editor, Shirley Velasquez.
