Guess she decided blondes have more fun!

No sooner had we gotten used to seeing Spring Breakers’ Ashley Benson as a brunette (after she went dark on March 7) than she changed it up again.

“I was bored,” she explained of her new hue to PEOPLE at the L.A. Spring Breakers premiere on March 14. “I feel more myself brunette to be honest. I love dark hair, dark clothing.”

She also noted that it was only semi-permanent so would keep getting lighter, but we didn’t expect to see it quite so light, so fast: Benson was seen leaving a salon with an allover honey-blonde shade Thursday morning.

We have to admit, we like both colors on her, so maybe you can help us decide: Is Benson better brunette or blonde?

I like it blonde.

Brunette – it really makes her pretty blue eye pop.

It’s a wig. She talked about having to wear it to shoot the show.

I liked her with brunette. It gave her a pop of color instead of just blending in. I read her interview the other day that while on set filming PLL, she was wearing a wig. Maybe the wig didn’t look right or something?
