Paris Hilton Finally Changed Her Hair Color, Just in Time for Fall

The socialite stepped out at an event in Los Angeles with a new look.

Paris Hilton is known for many things–including pink Juicy tracksuits, bedazzled cell phones and, of course, inventing the selfie–but her long, platinum blonde extensions are her most signature and consistent attribute.

On Tuesday night, Hilton finally debuted a new hairstyle. Sort of. At Paper Magazine’s runway benefit for the Make-a-Wish Foundation in Los Angeles, the 36-year-old socialite debuted a darker color. The perfect blend of blonde and brunette, Hilton’s long, sleek waves were a much more toned-down version of her signature look–and felt perfect for a California blonde in fall. To compliment her new lowlights, Hilton kept the rest of her ensemble fairly simple, wearing an off-the-shoulder black Self-Portrait dress with neutral eyeshadow and a glossy pink lip.

This isn’t the first time Hilton has experimented with a darker hair color. Over the summer, she posted a photograph of herself on Instagram with the hashtag #BrunettesHaveFunToo. (It turned out she was wearing a wig for a movie role, and had not dyed her hair.) Perhaps she discovered that brunettes have more fun, and Hilton plans to join the dark side permanently.
