Something about motherhood just makes Jennifer Love Hewitt want to change her hair. Just before welcoming daughter Autumn in November, she cut some bangs — and now four months later, she’s debuted a brand new blonde do on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The lighter locks are a big switch for the new mom, who has been rocking shoulder-length brunette hair in various shades of sun-kissed for a few years now. This is the lightest blonde we can remember her being in ages — a true golden shade with a slightly darker underlayer. She also has grown out the bangs into face-framing layers and complemented the Cali girl look with bronzed makeup and glossy lips.

So how is she adjusting to the new look? “I love it!” she told PEOPLE at an event for her collection with A Pea In the Pod. “I was just inside with the baby and I felt like I was ready for a change. As Giuliana Rancic says, I wanted to get my ‘momjo’ back! I got my mojo back, I wanted my ‘momjo.'”

Hewitt raved about how much fun she’s having parenting the “fantastic” Autumn, whom she says loves to dance. But no matter how easy any baby is, we still can’t imagine opting for a more high-maintenance hairdo with a newborn at home. We suppose that’s just one more way we differ from the stars!

What do you think of Hewitt’s new do? Do you love her as a blonde? Tell us below!

Jennifer Lopez called, she wants her hair back.

Washes her out! She looks best brunette with caramel highlights like the bottom pic.

I’m still mad she didn’t work things out with the producers for The Client List to come back on. That show was one of my favs!

Jennifer Lopez was my first thought as well. But I don’t consider that blonde, it’s still brown, just highlighted. And not her best look.

Love It!

Love it!!

I think she looks best somewhere in between these two hues.

Not a flattering look on her. She should’ve stuck with the caramel highlights like she had in the bottom picture.

I agree with those who say it washes her out. Her darker color is prettier on her.

Jeanne on

I have to agree with Nicole!
