Emma Roberts has gone to the dark side ... of hair, that is! Yesterday, Roberts returned to her brunette roots, albeit a slightly darker tone than her natural shade, and posted a gorgeous Instagram shot of her new ’do shortly before she stepped out. "Love my girls over at NineZeroOne," she wrote. "Nikki Lee, Riawna Capri, and Morgan Parks always save the day! #brunettebaby."

The star is in good company—she follows in the footsteps of Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, Naya Rivera, and Maggie Gyllenhaal, who each decided to take their sunny blond highlights to darker shades for the summer. Roberts's updated hue is a welcome change, and we're sure she'll have fun coordinating her look with all new wardrobe choices. "I like to tone down a feminine piece by contrasting my hair and makeup with a dress so it's not too girlie," she previously told InStyle.

Pair her brown bob with a sexy, smoky eye and a cutout LBD—the rich shade creates an edgy, bad-girl vibe.
