AnnaLynne McCord, the former 90210 actress, ditched her signature blond ringlets for a dark brunette hue. She debuted the new color at the Unlikely Heroes’ Recognizing Heroes Awards Dinner and Gala, where she was honored for her work in fighting to put an end to human trafficking.¬†Although the new chocolate-brown color sort of takes away from her amazing, natural-looking tan, we think the dark color really makes her pale green eyes pop. The actress went a lighter shade of brown back in 2011 before having to return to blonde for filming, so it seems like she’s looking to give brunette another try.

Going from a natural blond shade to a brunette color like AnnaLynne’s new look is much easier than the reverse (no bleach here!), but returning to your natural blond hair can still be a little tricky. The easiest solution: highlight gradually to get back to a natural blond with minimal damage.
