It’s hardly Effie Trinket-pink, but Elizabeth Banks’s new hair color is still eye-catching.

The Hunger Games star, who rarely varies from her golden-blonde hue, was seen out in L.A. heading into a salon with light hair and walking out with a noticeably deeper hue.

Her new color appears to be an allover chestnut shade with honey and auburn tints throughout. And judging by her huge smile upon exiting, she doesn’t buy that blondes have more fun.

Tell us: Do you like Banks as a brunette?

Love it. This has convinced me – As a long time overhighlighted blonde, I’m going to try the brunette look. Wish me luck.

much nicer. notice how much more natural color she has in her skin now? that’s from having a color closer to her natural color. i hate it when people drastically change their hair color thinking they look better. changing color is fine but when you change more than a couple shades lighter/darker than your natural color, it just looks unnatural.

Love it, I always thought she was kind of a bad blonde, it was way fried and not real flattering on her, this is much nicer.

Uh, this isn’t closer to her natural colour. Elizabeth Banks is a natural blonde.

Her skin now looks a little reddish – as a blonde her skin tone is creamy and perfectly suited to her natural blonde colour.
