Witherspoon goes brunette

Reese Witherspoon has ditched her blonde locks and debuted a dramatic makeover as she stepped out in Los Angeles with brunette hair at the weekend.

The 37-year-old star is trying out a darker look and stepped out in Los Angeles this weekend sporting an uncharacteristic brunette mane.

E! News published photos of the actress out with her family on Sunday, wearing her hair swept back from her face as she went for lunch with husband Jim Toth and their son, Tennessee.

Reese won over audiences with icy locks in films including the aptly titled 2001 comedy Legally Blonde.

She dyed her hair a chestnut hue to play June Carter in 2005 Oscar-winning drama Walk the Line but shortly thereafter went back to blonde.

The website suggests the change in style may be for a new movie role.

Reese currently has three films in pre-production, including Paul Feig comedy Wish List, Philippe Falardeau drama The Good Lie and Bryan Buckley romcom Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus.

The makeover follows the actress’ recent retreat from Hollywood for her 37th birthday celebrations in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

"Reese was beaming. She looked so excited about her getaway with Jim," a witness told People magazine.

The pair stayed at Capella Pedregal resort in a luxury suite that overlooked the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez.

Apparently Reese and Jim spent most of their time tanning and eating delicious meals on their private patio.

"They seemed to enjoy spending time alone," another source detailed.

Reese and her talent agent spouse welcomed baby Tennessee James into the world at the end of September 2012.

The star also shares a 13-year-old daughter, Ava, and nine-year-old son, Deacon, with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe.
