It can be hard to pull off red hair sometimes, but it really seems to suit Holly Madison. She’s like a brand new woman (next door)!

We're used to seeing the Girls Next Door star as a platinum blonde, but earlier in March she defected to Team Ginger and recently shared a photo on Instagram showing off the new look.

"I'm tired of looking the same," Holly, 34, told Us Weekly. "People judge you on your appearance. It's frustrating when you go about your daily life and people assume that just because you look the same way you did 10 years ago, you're the same."

Holly's world has changed a lot in the past few years. She's now married to Pasquale Rotella and the mom of their 1-year-old daughter, Rainbow. She’s put the Playboy world of Hugh Hefner far behind her.

Holly said Pasquale "loves" her new color, and she seems pretty fond of it herself. "I look better with dark hair — and way younger!" 

Do you agree? Is Holly better blonde or red? Check out a side-by-side color comparison here. Gonna have to go with red on this one! She still looks like a Disney princess, just Ariel instead of Aurora or Cinderella.
