All good ombres must come to an end.

In preparation for his role as the Joker in the 2016 film “Suicide Squad,” Jared Leto posted Instagram pictures of his trimmed, bleached hair — taking him one step closer to achieving the green hair required for the part.

Leto already shocked fans (and broke a few hearts) earlier this week when he and “Suicide Squad” director David Ayer posted photographic evidence that the actor had traded his famous multi-hued long hair for a shorter style.

“Suicide Squad” is based on the DC comicbook and tells the story of a band of supervillains who must risk their lives for a chance at redemption. Other cast members include Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne and Will Smith. It hits theaters August 5, 2016.

    “Ombre?” Are you misspelling “hombre,” or are you referring to the card game?

    Or maybe it’s just that non-existent copy editor again.

    Tom Hardy dropped out of the movie. Maybe you should stop copy/pasting your blurb.

    The fact that you have no mention of his Fight Club character is rather sad.
