New baby, new look! Drew Barrymore debuted a deep brunette hair hue Saturday night at the LACMA Art + Film gala in L.A., a major change from the ombré style she’d been sporting throughout her pregnancy.

The actress, a hair color chameleon, has experimented a lot in the past three years, trying everything from red and dip-dyed to blonde and brunette.

“Drew likes to keep her look fresh,” her stylist told PEOPLE last year. “We like to try new things when the seasons change.” Our opinion? This new chocolatey brown hue is a perfect choice for fall. Tell us: Are you a fan of Barrymore’s new look?

wow, brunette hair really suits her

A a on

I think both blonde and this color suit her well, however, blonde suits her a bit more.
It does look shiny and healthy though

nichole c on

Better than the blonde hair

Tracie on

It looks great, but I like her blonde.

She’s cute in all hair colors

UnKnown on

Love her new hair color, but Drew looks good in just about any hair color. Not many people can pull off hair color like Drew can.

Gorgeous! Much better than blond. Stay this way!

Drew really can pull of any shade she tries.Lovely no matter what.

Amber on

Looks fantastic!

Tully on

So much prettier and sophisticated as a brunette.

Christi on

I think in the 2 pictures the make up is completely different so judging on that alone I would say blonde because it makes her look younger but if you changed it up so it wasn’t so heavy with the dark hair it could go either way.

Janis on

Gorgeous!!! So much better. Just lovely and she looks amazing

Sheri on

She looks absolutely glowing, beautiful.

Cee on

She looks beautiful, like a grown up young mom. Her eyes are shinning in this color…congrats Drew!

lola on

she’s beautiful!

lessonlearnt on

love the darkness

Beth on

She managed to make it look really healthy and shiny. Sometimes going so dark, hair looks dull. Especially if you color your hair a lot and it has damage.
But it looks great and it suits her!

No it makes her look older then she is. After 35 you either go lighter or don’t change don’t go dark.

Looks gfreat on Drew!

It’s refreshing to see brunettes. Being blonde (unnaturally) is overrated. Most women look older when they constantly die their hair bleach blonde…

Cheese on

oops, *dye

antskip2 on

She looks gorgeous with this hair color! I think it’s probably closer to what her natural shade is nowadays compared to the blonde she was previously sporting.

I think her hair is gorgeous! Looks really great for the fall and with the red lipstick it really stands out….

I Love it! It looks great on her. I think she looks better in a way, more youthful and a warm + fuzzy feel!

Dimension A Salon on

This San Francisco hair salon enjoys the upper color, but that lower Ombre half is just brassy for our upscale clients.

She is beautiful no matter what her hair color! I do think she is prettier as a blonde!

I love it. May just have to do this to my hair. Similar length and shades. She is so awesome.

mbr on

Drew is stunningly beautiful blonde, brunette,ing hair, short in between! The girl rocks it all!

mbr on

*long hair

BBB on

Barrymore is one of the few people that can pull off several shades. Goodness though, what’s her real hair color at this point? I know she was blonde as a child but her adult hair color is a mystery.

Nannyto1 on

Love it!!

J on

This is nothing new. She’s been a brunette before. Meh
