When 21-year-old Jennifer Lawrence took the world by storm as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, many moviegoers didn't recognize her.

But it wasn't her dowdy district clothes that disguised her appearance — it was Katniss's long brown hair, which she wore tied back in the character's signature braid for much of the film.

For her 2010 role in Winter's Bone, a critically acclaimed performance that earned her an Oscar nomination for Best Actress, Jennifer's hair was blond — a color that looked striking against her red Calvin Klein Collection gown at the 83rd annual Academy Awards.

But this naturally blond bombshell wears brown just as effortlessly. Katniss's auburn locks blended perfectly with her olive skin tone, bringing out the mystery in her blue-grey eyes.

Jennifer did a few post-Hunger Games interviews as a brunette last summer before quickly bleaching her hair back. Do you miss the darker 'do, or are you loving her golden glow?
