Since we last saw Brennan (Emily Deschanel) in the Bones Season 7 finale, our favorite forensic anthropologist has had to adjust to life on the run. And what’s the first thing you do when trying to evade capture by the FBI? Stay under the radar and change your appearance, stat.

So Dr. B, who has sported her simple and functional brunette hairstyle for seven seasons now, is mixing things up - and trading her brown locks for a stunning shade of blond.

Obviously, the change in tresses seems born more of necessity than of personal preference, but we think she still looks pretty fabulous either way. What do you think of the new look? Can you simply not wait for Brennan’s name to be cleared so she can get back to her usual look, or are you kind of digging this new style?
