Has her role on The Crazy Ones convinced Sarah Michelle Gellar to do something a little less ordinary? The actress has switched up her perpetually light-blonde locks for a dip-dyed style, which she debuted out in Brentwood, Calif. Wednesday.

Gellar returned to her natural brunette color for a few years in the mid-2000s, but she’s been back to Buffy blonde for years now. Her original hue is typically more of a dark mahogany brown, which is why we believe this new look is intentional (rather than just overdue for a trip to the salon) — from the reddish roots to the golden streaks throughout, she appears to be trying out a brand new do.

Most often with the ombré look, darker hair gradually blends into a bright blonde at the tips (we tried it out in a video here), leaving the top of the hair a more natural color. And traditionally, stylists fade a cocoa or sandy brown color into platinum tips. But Gellar looks to have had a series of auburn or copper shades applied at the top, while her ends are a little more golden than her most recent hair hue.

What do you think of Gellar’s new ombré style? Could she be transitioning back to brunette? Tell us below!

I thought the whole ombre thing was out of style already.

Looks good on her!

I think it makes her look younger and refreshed. Cute!

The ombre trend is so tired looking, who wants to walk around with what looks like over grown greasy roots?
The only person who successfully pulls it off is Khloe Kardashian because her hair is always styled and long enough that the top section doesn’t look like roots.

I like it. Now maybe she can learn to act on “The CrazyOnes”. Everyone is hysterical, she’s awful….

It’s still fuzzy, plain, and flat. It lacks body and shine.

Everyone’s comments seem very negative…
