Jessica Chastain Ditched Her Signature Red Hair — & It's Perfect For Winter

Once the weather starts to turn, we have a lemming-like impulse to “go dark for winter.” A mass color hysteria, if you will. It happens one by one, and then suddenly it’s the end of December and everything — from our clothes to our hair — is darker than the sky at 5 p.m. It’s an annual trickle-down effect, and Jessica Chastain is the latest to get bitten by the brunette bug.
The actress, whose fiery red hair has been her signature for years, showed off the new look on Instagram yesterday. With Chastain's adorable dog, Chaplin (or Chap for short), stealing the show, we almost didn’t notice anything different about the photo. Almost. But we sure are glad we did.

The rich, chocolaty shade is perfect for her fair complexion, and the color makes her blue eyes look...well, even bluer. Chap is still giving the actress a run for her money in the cuteness department, but we’ll go ahead and call it an even split. It is the holidays, after all.
