Just in time for summer, Blake Lively is once again a golden girl. The Green Lantern star, who dyed her hair red for her role in Hick, recently returned to a blonder, slightly strawberry hue. When she went red, Lively told PEOPLE she “loved” the look. “I feel like Ariel [the Little Mermaid],” she said. The color change allowed her to get into character, too. “It helps when you’re playing a role, when I don’t feel like myself,” she explained. “And I don’t really feel like myself with red hair.” Lively, who’s been globetrotting with rumored new beau Leonardo DiCaprio, debuted the fresh blonde tresses at a Green Lantern press conference in L.A. last week, then took the look public in New York City last night at the Ghetto Film School spring benefit at the Standard Hotel. We love the starlet as a blonde or a redhead, but what do you think? Tell us: Do you prefer Lively with blonde or red hair?
