Bye bye, red — hello again, ombré! Drew Barrymore appears to be back on the two-tone hair wagon again after dying her hair red in April. The actress — who hasn’t been out in a while — joined pals Cameron Diaz and Kate Hudson (plus Reese Witherspoon) at the LACMA Art + Film Gala Honoring Clint Eastwood in L.A. on Saturday, debuting her new (and also short) do at the event.

In April, Barrymore’s colorist Tracey Cunningham told PEOPLE that the actress prefers to keep her look fresh. “We like to try new things when the seasons change,” she added. Since the auburn was “the perfect spring red shade,” Cunningham said, it’s possible Barrymore’s short dark-to-light is what’s hot again for fall. Not that it matters for the star; as Cunningham said, “Drew is a color chameleon! Her skin is so pretty that any hair color will complement her eyes.”

And in fact, she has tried just about every color under the sun: in September of 2009, the actress worked light blonde hair with black tips while promoting her film Whip It, then moved on to practically a reverse color scheme, sporting darker roots with lighter ends, a look she owned for quite some time. She’d previously sported red hair in 2007 and 2008, as well. Tell us: What do you think of Barrymore’s return to ombré hair?

Love the cut, HATE the color. Looks like bad roots, ugh :(

No, this looks yucky, or the light is too low to bring it out if there is any good to it. Need t do something else with your hair Drew! Quit going back for more, it doesn’t work. Hopefully Kris Humphries will take that advice also!

she’s a pretty lady, but i like her hair better long… i like it best dark with light tips…

Jennifer on

I think Drew is a pretty woman but this hair color and style does not flatter her. It actually takes away from her beauty!

Angel on

Yuck! Not a flattering cut or color. Her hair looks better long. And it’s not healthy for your hair to keep dying it – it will ruin your hair and it takes a long time for it to recover from that.

who cares that the most overpaid actress in hollywood dyed her hair. why isnt there an article about one of the greatest directors, Clint Eastwood, being honored? he has directed more actors and actresses to an oscar win or nomination than any other director. this is really sad that an article on hair color takes precedence over a legend. i will NEVER again patronize this website. get your priorities straight PEOPLE.

Drew Barrymore has many things women can be jealous of including fame, fortune and fabulous hair! If you are a woman who used to have hair like Drew, but it has started thinning or balding you can get a hair transplant and get your hair and confidence back. Mia Israel is a little girl suffering with Spinal Muscular Atrophy. This is a disease for which there is no cure, however, the Israel family had joined together with hair transplant surgeon Dr. Brett Bolton who is donating 10 tax deductible hair transplants valued at $12,000 for the Gala that is being hosted on November 17th in Fort Lauderdale to help raise awareness for SMA.
