Bryce Dallas Howard Did Something Bold To Celebrate The End Of Jurassic World 3 Filming

You know the old saying: When one door closes, a box of hair dye opens.

In Bryce Dallas Howard's case, when the film franchise you've spent over half a decade working in comes to an end, the opportunity to shake things up and commemorate a new chapter of life presents itself. Howard, who has played Claire Dearing in Universal Pictures' Jurassic World franchise since 2015, celebrated the end of filming on the upcoming third installment, Jurassic World: Dominion, by doing something pretty bold: dying her hair pink. 

Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, November 11 (a few days after Jurassic World: Dominion wrapped shooting on November 7), Howard shared two snaps of her new 'do. She sports the same forehead-sweeping fringe that she has for years — as seen on her Jurassic World character in both 2015's Jurassic World and 2018's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom — but her signature ginger locks now fade in an ombré-style effect from a warm brown into a cotton-candy pink shade. Howard described it as her "farewell cut and color" as she says goodbye to the Jurassic World franchise.

"It's true! After years of the #JurassicWorld Claire cut and color, I've dyed my hair pink! ⁣I initially dyed my hair this color after the first Jurassic World in 2014 for a UCLA sociology class I took called, ~Hip and Cool: A Study of Distinction and Exclusion; The History of the Hipster~ I did an ethnographic field report that observed hipsters in their 'natural habitat' and thought it was appropriate to immerse myself in the experience," Howard joked in the caption of the post. 

She continued, "This time, I dyed my hair to celebrate the closing of one chapter and the start of another — and what better way than with a fresh new 'do! The fact that this Jurassic World adventure is coming to an end washes over me in waves. This has been a beautiful experience I'll keep with me always. Thank you Charlie Rogers (@charlierogershairandmakeup) for giving Claire killer hair in Jurassic World: Dominion and for a heck of a farewell cut and color — you can do anything and everything!"

What to expect from Jurassic World 3

Given it's a trilogy-ender (following after the original Jurassic Park trilogy, of course), Jurassic World: Dominion has its work cut out for it. Not only will it have to tie up any loose ends and conclude characters' personal arcs in satisfying ways, but the film must also pack a serious punch if it's to go out with a bang. 

Thankfully, Jurassic World: Dominion has a lot going for it. The cast is stacked and stellar — featuring returning actors like Howard, Chris Pratt (Owen Grady), Sam Neill (Dr. Alan Grant), Jeff Goldblum (Dr. Ian Malcolm), Laura Dern (Dr. Dr. Ellie Sattler), Justice Smith (Franklin Webb), Daniella Pineda (Zia Rodriguez), Omar Sy (Barry Sembène), Jake Johnson (Lowery Cruthers), and more alongside new-to-the-franchise additions Mamoudou Athie and Scott Haze. 

And that's not even to mention the film's story. While specifics are sparse for now, director Colin Trevorrow previously teased that Jurassic World: Dominion will feel like the original Jurassic Park movie from 1993. He told Total Film (via Bloody Disgusting), "I'm looking forward to, in the third film, getting a little back into the paleontological, wild animal, true dinosaur nature of all of it." Jurassic World: Dominion will, in Trevorrow's words, get "back to basics" and feel like a "science thriller" film sure to please longtime fans.

Jurassic World: Dominion is currently slated to debut in theaters on June 10, 2022.
