Dylan, who is pregnant with her second child, said that the change was inspired by looking at some old photos of herself.

"During my first trimester I couldn't get my hair dyed, so my natural, dark brown color was growing back in," she told TODAY Style. "When I could finally get it highlighted, I didn't want it to be too drastic so I just lightened it a bit. The other day I saw some old pictures and I really missed the brighter blond so I thought, let's bring it back!"

Fans filled the comments of the post with compliments, calling the look beautiful and perfect for fall. Author Kristin McGee chimed in to call the new color "gorgeous."

Dylan said that her stylist created the low-maintenance shade by creating some blond highlights around her face and using a hand-painted, balayage method throughout.

"Basically, that means I can go a lot longer between colorings, because I'm too busy to go every 2-3 months!" she explained.

Dylan has had darker locks before. In January 2019, she tried darker strands, crediting the change to her stylist at the time and trying out a shade closer to her natural color.

She looks beautiful either way!
