Like all Grey's Anatomy fans, we tend to notice when one of the stars changes their hair. There was the year Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) got bangs, the year Lexie (Chyler Leigh) got bangs, and the year Callie (Sara Ramirez) grew out her bangs. Is there something about being a doctor at Seattle Grace and bangs that brings about emotional baggage? Bang-age, anyone?

In any case, one doctor’s new look might actually signify a change in their character. What do you think of April Kepner (Sarah Drew) getting a new hair color?

Sarah tweeted this smiley photo (at right) on August 15, and we can’t help but wonder if it means something for her newly liberated character. Does unemployment plus losing her virginity equal a new attitude? And is this new attitude reflected in her slightly sunnier highlights?

Tell us if you think Sarah’s new shade of red is hot or not in the poll below.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 9 will premiere on Thursday, September 27 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
