Dylan Dreyer has a new ‘do!

The TODAY meteorologist sported darker strands on the show this week.

What inspired her new shade?

“Everybody’s asking me that! Even my husband asked me that,” Dylan said. “My hair was looking a little brassy so we put a toner in over the weekend, which I guess tones it down to the point where now it looks darker.

“The guy who does my hair, Freddy, said, ‘I think we’ll put a toner in your hair’ and I said, ‘All right! Whatever!’ and the result was a darker hairstyle.”

Dylan also freshened up her cut, chopping one-half inch off her long, textured bob.

This new shade is a little closer to her natural hair color, dark brown. But while Dylan likes this deeper hue for the “cold winter months,” she said she will probably go brighter again in the summer.

“I’ve just always lightened it,” she said.

For now, though, she is loving her updated look.

“When your hair looks good, you feel a little peppier,” she said.
