The star ditches her temporarily bright blonde look

Splash News Online; INF

It was fun while it lasted! After a brief visit to the blonde side, Maggie Gyllenhaal has returned to her natural brunette shade, debuting her new (old) look over the weekend in her N.Y.C. hometown.

Gyllenhaal surprised fans with her platinum pixie, which she first wore in Cannes in April at a photocall for her film An Honourable Man — and though it was a surprising new look for the longtime brunette, we loved the breezy, Parisian feel of the color for her. She continued to rock her lighter look with bright lips and bold outfits throughout all of May.

But whether the hair was just for a role and its time came to an end, or whether she just missed her more low-maintenance hair hue, Gyllenhaal decided to make the switch back on Friday. And though we were getting used to the fun blonde look, we have to say, it’s nice to see her back to basics.

Do you prefer one color or the other? Should she have stayed blonde for summer? Tell us below!
