Reese Witherspoon is legally brunette. For now.

The 37-year-old Legally Blonde actress debuted a new hair color this week as she was photographed with darker locks, according to Us Weekly.

On March 30, Reese was photographed in Nashville with brown hair while carring her six-month-old son Tennessee.

Check out a photo here of newly brunette Reese holding her little bundle of joy.

Reese's darkened hue is all thanks to her role in the upcoming film The Good Lie, about a woman who becomes friends with refugees in the Sudanese civil war.

Of course, this isn't the first time Reese has gone darker, as she also went brunette to star in 2005's Walk the Line, which earned her an Oscar. Not a bad price to pay.

"It's great to be brunette," she had said back in 2004. "It's a nice reprieve from my normal self."

So do you like Reese as a brunette, or would you rather she return to her roots  so to speak?
