Jennifer Love Hewitt Goes Brunette (and Gets a Bob!)

06/20/2014 at 01:49 PM ET

In April, Jennifer Love Hewitt told PEOPLE she dyed her hair blonde to get her “momjo” back (her words, not ours!). But the lighter locks were short-lived — the actress has switched things up in the color and cut department.

The busy mom, who welcomed daughter Autumn in November, has dyed her hair back to her signature brunette shade, and chopped some serious length from the ends. It looks to be an asymmetrical bob, with face-framing pieces that fall right under her chin.

Maybe it’s for a new role, or maybe she just wanted to switch things up (and it can’t hurt to have less length for her 7-month-old to tug at!). The star has gone short before, but this seems to be the most dramatic cut she’s had in a long time.

Hewitt has also been open about losing her baby weight, explaining that she struggled with putting pressure on herself, but learned how to find a balance.

“Having been somebody who has had to think about what my body looked like for 25 years, it was hard when it didn’t come off. I didn’t look like some of the girls in the magazines that I’ve worked with … who [the weight] does fall off for,” she told PEOPLE. “I was like, ‘What’s wrong with me?’ I had to have a conversation with myself. I had to look at [Autumn] and think, ‘Would I want her to feel this way when she’s my age?’ I was like, ‘Get it together – your head’s in the wrong place.'”

Now, Hewitt is making sure she’s doing workouts that include her baby girl. “I hold her, we do squats, we dance, she listens to the music and she loves it. Or I put her in her little chair and she watches and thinks it’s really funny,” she shared. “[Working out is] really jarring to your body. I don’t know how people go back and do CrossFit a week later. It’s just not me. I’m slowly getting back into it. I’m not that worried.”

What do you think of Hewitt’s new hair? How about her outlook on weight loss? Sound off below.

She needed something cuz she can’t get attention anymore. She’s an eyesore hm @ anyone who thinks her gaining/losing weight would ever change her ugliness- her face is jank af & she is a nasty person

Gaining/losing weight wouldn’t change her. She is a bad person with a bad face

I like her dark hair better but that cut is not doing her any favors.

She looks much better with dark hair. Not too sure about the new cut, but hey, it’s her hair so if she likes it..good for her.
