Today is a big day for blondes. You may recall that on Tuesday, we reported Jared Leto had cut off his famously long, luxurious hair in preparation for his role as the Joker in the upcoming film Suicide Squad. If you don't recall, play closer attention. Here's how he looked after the cut.

Now, Leto's transformation has come a step farther, as his short hair has been bleached blond. He showed off the look on Instagram:

Did you know that if you go blond and sweep your hair back, your clothes will automatically sprout crests? It's called the "yacht club phenomenon."
Of course, the blond is just a temporary look, too. Leto only bleached his hair so it would be easier to dye, because as the Joker, he'll go full green. His stylist, Chase Kusero, teased that with this post on his own Instagram account:

This only ramps up our expectations for Suicide Squad, and Leto's performance in particular. He's a very talented guy, and it'll be really interesting to see his take on such an iconic character.
