Jennifer Lawrence, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga And More Stars Who Keep Changing Their Hair Color (PHOTOS)

What happens when celebrities trade in the hair color they are best known for? It throws us for a loop, to say the least.

When we first saw Jennifer Lawrence's new brunette locks, we were shocked. The previously blonde actress no longer resembled a beach babe... or her "Winter's Bone" character. But, that doesn't mean we didn't like her new look. In fact, the darker hair gives her a much more high-fashion, striking appearance and really brings out her blue eyes. It just took a little getting used to.

She isn't the only star to recently change up her hair in a dramatic way: Lady Gaga took a page out of Lawrence's book (now that's something we never thought we would say) and traded in her platinum wigs for a chocolate brown color, Jessica Alba ditched her dark hair for a sun-kissed hue and Miley Cyrus abandoned her natural auburn color for an almost-white blonde. These transformations were startling at first, but we're on board with their looks. Now.

Who else has ditched the hair color that made them famous? Check out the photos below to see how stars like Charlize Theron, Drew Barrymore, Demi Lovato and more look as both blondes and brunettes. Which looks do you like best?
