We’ve all been hyped for the Lizzie McGuire reboot ever since it was first announced last month at Disney’s D23 convention, especially because it involves the OG Lizzie, Hilary Duff, reprising her role as the plucky teen we could all relate to. Except now she’ll be playing a plucky adult we all relate to, presumably.
Obviously the world is super keen to catch a first glimpe of Hilary as the new Lizzie, and this is about as close a look as I could find, thanks to the hair stylist of one Hilary Duff. Nikki Lee has gifted us a cheeky sneak peek at what the Lizzie McGuire reboot is gonna look like — at least, follicle-wise. If you thought there would be butterfly clips galore, sadly adult Lizzie has chucked those in for a more mature look.
Nikki chucked this pic up of her client with the very excited caption: “Never in a million years did I think I would be doing Lizzie’s color! Well dreams do come true! Thank you [Hilary Duff] for trusting me to create the perfect blonde for the next chapter of Lizzie McGuire!”

Never in a million years did I think I would be doing Lizzie’s color!???????? Well dreams do come true!???? Thank you @hilaryduff for trusting me to create the perfect blonde for the next chapter of Lizzie Mcguire! ???? And thank you @joico for helping my creativity flow effortlessly! Xx♥️ . For all you stylists out there whose clients are going to want to look like Lizzie…???? Here’s my formula break down: I did a full head highlight using @joico Blonde Life Powder Lightener with 30 Volume LumiShine Developer at the root, 20 volume through the mid-shaft, and 10 volume through the ends when needed. After she lifted to a pale yellow I did a root tap about 2 inches out at the bowl using Joico LumiShine Demi-Permanent Liquid 6N with 5 Volume LumiShine Developer For her hair line and a bit of the mid shaft I used Joico LumiShine Demi-Permanent Liquid equal parts 6N + 8N with 5 Volume LumiShine Developer My all over toner was Joico LumiShine Demi-Permanent Liquid 9NV + 10N + 10SB with 5 Volume LumiShine Developer. I applied this while the root tap was still on and let everything process together for 15mins…Xx
She even kindly gave us all the instructions on how to copy Lizzie’s / Hilary’s colour, which if I am anything like my 2001 self, I will definitely be attempting, just hopefully professionally this time and not in a terrible DIY way at home.
You’ll recall that Lizzie McGuire is bloody famous for her hairdos and hair accessories. She loved a crimp vibe, but only certain parts of her hair:
She also loved to have tiny little buns in her hair:
As well as the classic bandana, a look she loved:
I’m really, really hoping that at least one of these looks makes a comeback in the reboot — just as a little nod to all her OG fans.
