The actress, 23, has been spending her summer in New York City where she's starring with Minka Kelly in the off-Broadway show, Love, Loss, & What I Wore.

According to her Twitter feed, the shade switch is for an upcoming role. "Okay! I'm NOT leaving 902 and the hair is for a movie I'm shooting right now. I adore all of you!! Xxx."

The CW recently announced that 90210 will return with a fourth season this fall.
