Emma Stone returns to her roots with strawberry blond hair

Hollywood darling Emma Stone doesn’t just win praise for her acting chops, but also her red carpet-ready style — and her locks are no exception.

The starlet had been rocking a stunning shade of coppery red throughout awards season. But this past weekend, the 28-year-old actress surprised everyone when she debuted a warm strawberry blond hairdo at the Audi Polo Challenge in London (she’s there filming her latest project, a historical drama, "The Favourite").

OK, perhaps “new” isn't the right word. Because, as it turns out, Stone didn’t so much try a new shade as go back to her roots. While most of us think of Stone as a redhead, she’s actually a natural blonde — which makes sense, given how perfectly she pulls off her latest look.

If you’ve been following the Oscar-winning actress's career over the years, you’ve likely noticed she’s no stranger to changing the color of her tresses. She’s rocked a variety of hues, including coppery red, strawberry blond, platinum and chocolate.

In April 2006, a baby-faced — then brunette — Stone showed up at a Replay Jeans party with waves and full bangs.

It was all about soft, strawberry blond waves at the Kids' Choice Awards in March 2012. Perhaps foreshadowing her latest look?
