She's gone to the dark side!

Kristin Chenoweth traded in her honey blonde hair for a deeper color on Thursday, Aug. 28. The Glee actress, 46, showed off the new ombre brunette style while leaving the Gemini 14 hair salon in New York City.

Chenoweth didn't stop with the hair color either. She also had extensions added to lengthen her previously chin-length bob.

"I need change," she tweeted after the makeover on Aug. 28. "I love it!"

The Tony and Emmy award winner also showed off her makeover on Twitter. "Goin dark is fun," Chenoweth captioned a pic of her sitting outside at a table on Aug. 29. She even joked about the sudden change of hair length by tweeting, "I'm actually part chia."

Chia or not, the new color is the perfect balance of light and dark to play up her features. "While Kristin as a blonde with a short style accentuates her spunky charisma, her long darker locks show a more serious or mellow side," L'Oreal Paris Consulting Celebrity Colorist Kari Hill tells Us Weekly. "The contrast of the darker color against her skin gives her a more youthful glow. And the soft ombre or 'sombre' on her ends gives her a little taste of flirty blonde, making her new darker color a current trendy one."
