Hoping to spice things up for spring? Why not take a cue from Maggie Gyllenhaal, who just debuted the brand new, bright-blonde version of the pixie she’s been sporting for a year now. The actress stepped out at the Cannes photocall for The Honourable Woman in a very “French girl chic” look of a ruffled ivory dress, flat sandals and her new do tousled to perfection.

The actress is the latest to join the blonde crop brigade — Jennifer Lawrence, Julianne Hough and Pamela Anderson were charter members — after opting for a short pixie to salvage a bowl cut she had for a film role. “I originally cut it … in, like, a bowl cut for a movie,” she told PEOPLE at the time. “But when I got home I was trying to figure out what to do with it, so I asked Serge [Normant] to cut it, and he cut it all off!”

She loved the cut so much that she stuck to it — but now she’s mixing up her looks with this pure platinum shade, without even a hint of roots. And judging from her WhoSay account, she’s digging this do too. “I’m blonde btw,” she captioned the below sweet smiling photo on her social media account.

What do you think of Gyllenhaal as a blonde? Are you thinking about a new hue for spring? Tell us below!

Hate the pixie on her! She was no great beauty to begin with, now she looks like a frumpy soccer mom much older than her age.

the blonde makes the pixie so much more flattering on her. Like Teknosbeka said she isnt exactly a beauty but the blonde sure does help. i like it on her now.

Poor girl, she is so unfortunate looking.

In the left picture, her face looks very asymmetrical. She really does look better as a blonde.

She looks ten years younger! Blonde pixie is definitely better! Makes me miss my pixie haircut!

Perks her up a little bit.

jrroseberry on

I love it. The color makes her look a lot younger.

A darker blonde color would look great on her..

Crystal D. on

This color suits her so much better. Its much younger and a lot fresher. Maggie’s got her own cool unique sense of style and this just takes her up a notch. Super cute!

daphne on

This new colour really suits her better and took years off her old look. Good choice!

Tracy on

I love the blonde. She is adorable with either color but I think the blonde is more flattering.

Karolina on

I really like the blonde on her! I think she looks great, she may not be conventional beautiful but she does have a quality that I think makes her striking.

Robin on

Gotta say I love her so much, she’s so incredibly talented, and I love her with a pixie… I prefer the dark as it makes her eyes pop, but the blonde looks surprisingly good too! It’s a great cut…

Micah on

She’s very unattractive with either hair color.

I think she looks great! The blonde really suits her well!

Really Teknosbeka, you are a mean person!! Who cares if you hate the pixie on her, short hair is really in now…better than having long stringy hair that you pull up into a pony tail!!

arijana on
