Anne Hathaway Is a Brunette Again

ADRIAN SANCHEZ-GONZALEZ/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Anne Hathaway has returned to her natural hair color: brunette.

Paparazzi snapped photos of Hathaway's new do on Tuesday while she grabbed coffee in New York City. According to Us Weekly, the Les Misérables actress dyed her hair on May 23 at the salon of Hollywood stylist Marie Robinson.

Hathaway had dyed her hair platinum blonde to attend the Met Ball in New York City earlier this month, a gala that benefits the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Hathaway reportedly returned to a brunette for her next movie role, Song One, in which she plays a woman who befriends her sick brother's favorite musician, according to Deadline.com.

Hathaway's pixie hairdo for Les Mis still generates lots of buzz. The hairstyle, which appropriately fit her as she portrayed the prostitute Fantine in her Oscar-winning performance, was even named the most influential film haircut of all time, according to the Hairdressing Council of Great Britain and Universal Pictures.

How Does Jennifer Aniston Really Feel About 'The Rachel' Haircut?

NBC Television/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Jennifer Aniston's hair started one of the biggest style trends in America. In the 1990s, Aniston's haircut, called "The Rachel," named after her character on Friends, became one of the most imitated hairstyles of all time.

"It gave women the opportunity to feel effervescent and bubbly and excited and still be found attractive," celebrity stylist and product developer Josh Rosebrook told ABC News.

Now, the 44-year-old actress is opening up and revealing the truth behind the cut that changed everything, including her, in her new Living Proof webisode called "Good Hair Day."

Stylist to the stars Chris McMillan created the look because, he says, Aniston's hair was long and frizzy.

"Cut the bottom, layered it from existing bangs to bottom, took a bobby pin, pinned it over and blew it out smooth," McMillan explains in the video.

"And you know what happened after that…" Aniston replied, jokingly.

Aniston confesses she finds the obsession with her hair surprising, because she had an unmanageable mane.

"It's one of those things I think is hysterical," she said. "That me of all people, who grew up with the worst hair, is known for that."

And Aniston acknowledges how important hair is to a woman's self-esteem.

"I think good hair days matter to women because we're women," she said in the webisode. "Our hair means something to us. It just does."

At the time, McMillan and Aniston didn't know they were about to create a phenomenon.

"It's amazing what a haircut can do," he said.

"They came to you, and then all of a sudden everybody started coming in with this flicky, flicky hairdo and I was like, 'What's happening?!" Aniston said, laughing.

Lady Gaga Drops Springsteen-Inspired 'Hair,' Celebrates 10 Million Twitter Followers

ROBYN BECK/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- On Monday afternoon, Lady Gaga released yet another song from her album Born This Way -- this one is called "Hair," and she has said in interviews that it was heavily influenced by Bruce Springsteen.  In fact, like her current single "The Edge of Glory," it also features a saxophone part by Clarence Clemons of Springsteen's E Street Band.

The song uses hair as a metaphor for self-expression, with Gaga singing, "If I'm a hot shot, mom will cut my hair at night/and in the morning, I'm shorn of my identity/I scream, 'Mom and Dad, why can't I be who I want to be?'"  The chorus goes, "I've had enough/this is my prayer/that I'll die living just as free as my hair."  

As Gaga's Little Monsters heard the song, they sent her messages via Twitter, which prompted Mother Monster to write on her Twitter page, "Your tweets are making me cry -- so happy! Dance the night away!"

Speaking of Twitter, over the weekend, Gaga became the first person ever to amass 10 million followers on social networking site.  By Monday, her count was up to 10,072,818 and rising.  Her closest competition, Justin Bieber, only has about 9.7 million followers.  She wrote on Twitter on Saturday, "10 Million Monsters! I'm speechless, we did it! Its an illness how I love you."
