Margot: I'm a mysterious brunette

Margot Robbie is "getting used to" her new brunette look.

The 23-year-old actress debuted her new brown locks on the red carpet at the 2014 Academy Awards on Sunday. Prior to this her hair was light blonde, but she dyed it earlier this year to begin work on her upcoming sci-fi movie Z for Zachariah.

While Margot admits she initially found it hard to adjust to the change, she is now enjoying her new look.

“I did a movie and I didn’t have time to go back to blonde,” she told People. “I’m liking it! I’m getting used to it. I feel very mysterious as a brunette!”

Margot gave a glimpse at her brunette look with a photo on her WhoSay page in January, accompanied with the caption: "First day on set for Z! She ain't a Duchess no more. (sic)". Her appearance differs dramatically from that during her time working on The Wolf of Wall Street, in which she plays feisty blonde Naomi opposite Leonardo DiCaprio.

Despite the alteration being for a movie, Margot isn't in a rush to go back to her lighter colour.

“I might not dye it back right away,” she added. “I’ll wait until I know what my next movie is.”

The Australian star previously revealed she dyed her hair to look younger for her new role as Ann in Z for Zachariah.

She also joked her locks won't look as sophisticated and styled in the film as they usually do.

"I think it needs to be a mousey brown colour for this role. Keeping it very limp, very of what it is - boring hair!" she laughed to POPSUGAR Australia prior to the dying.

"I need the character to look as young as possible and I tend to look a little younger when my hair is a light brown colour. So we're going to keep it very not done, and maybe put a brown rinse through it so it looks like a mousey brown."
