It's been a year of change for Megan Fox. The actor has been busy experimenting with a plethora of different hair colors over the past few months, starting with her dramatic “red velvet" bob from fall 2023. Fox stuck with the fiery red shade for awhile, then dabbled in pastel pink, faded “blue jeans” blue, and turquoise tones, but it looks like she's reversed course and is back to basics once again.

“She's a brunette again,” Fox proclaimed on Instagram, sharing a handful of photos of the transformation. It's part classic Megan, what with the deep espresso espresso brunette hair color that colorist Dimitris Giannetos dubbed “espresso martini,” but there's a twist. Fox's hair has been trimmed up into a chin-length tousled bob and she got bangs! New color? Check. New cut? Yep! Fringe? You know it. The look checks all the boxes of a fresh spring change-up and feels new, but it's also reminiscent of the young Fox we met in those Mary-Kate and Ashley tween movies too.

“She wanted me to take her back to her natural color,” Giannetos tells Allure. “So double espresso martini was the right sip.” Giannetos used Garnier's Fructis Hair Filler + Ceramide Color Repair System to “fill the hair with strength post-coloring.”

Fox is now sporting a sweet little French bob, which hits just below her jawline and is paired with brow-skimming fringe to up the flirty factor; Giannetos shares that the entire vibe was inspired by Sophia Loren and Monica Bellucci. The chocolate brown hair color plus the short length and bangs really brings out her bright blue eyes, as does her cherry red lipstick courtesy makeup artist Ash Holm.

Fox is a natural brunette, so it's not a huge shock to see her return to her color comfort zone, as fun as the crimson, cotton candy, and cerulean shades were. If there's ever a time to hit the refresh button, it's the season of renewal and rebirth, and Taurus queen Fox knows it.
