The arrival of springtime often inspires a chop of some sort, but what about a full-blown switch-up? Cast members of Apple’s forthcoming series The Morning Show were spotted in New York City on Weds., and Reese Witherspoon's brown hair was a surprise departure from her signature light blonde locks. The Academy Award-winning actor strolled in the sunshine alongside cast mate Billy Crudup, her updated sandy brown hair offering a little beauty inspiration for warmer months to come.

Even though MGM confirmed that Legally Blonde 3 is officially set for a 2020 release date, it looks like Witherspoon is legally brunette for the time being. Slightly more red than the 43-year-old's natural dark hair color, the medium brown hue made the actor's bright blue eyes extra noticeable.

This is likely a temporary look for whatever character Witherspoon will play in Apple's highly anticipated series, but it's clear she has no problem pulling off a whole spectrum of shades. Since emerging on the acting scene at just 15 years old, the New Orleans native has cemented herself as a true beauty chameleon, wearing every shade from red (A Wrinkle in Time) to chocolate brown (Walk The Line), back to her signature light blonde hue.

It's no secret that it-girls have been going to great lengths to maintain Daenerys-inspired platinum blonde amidst Game of Thrones mania, but Witherspoon's updated look makes a case for warmer tones this spring. Whether you're a natural blonde looking to switch things up in a major way, or a brunette finally ready to revert back to the dark side after years of harsh dye jobs, now could be the time to take the plunge on a big change.
