Blondes don’t have more fun?

Sarah Michelle Gellar has traded in her honey-colored locks for a darker ‘do.

The actress debuted her brunette color job on Instagram Friday, and we’re loving the darker look.

“#brownhairdontcare (actually kind of love it!!) thank you everyone @andylecomptesalon,” Gellar, 38, captioned the photo.


Although she didn’t specify what prompted her color swap, the actress announced in February that she would be returning to the small screen for a television reboot of the 1999 film Cruel Intentions — and the new hair is very reminiscent of Gellar’s character Kathryn Merteuil.


“How I am spending the 17 anniversary of the release of #cruelintentions #Crueltv,” Gellar captioned another photo of the pilot script she shared on Instagram on Saturday.
