While many of the eyes around the world were focused in on the Oscars ceremony at the Dolby Theater last night, obviously that’s not the only Academy bash that went down in Hollywood. Turns out there’s tons more news coming from Elton John’s 21st Annual AIDS Foundation Viewing Party, thanks to our girl Britney Spears and her brand new ’do. WHOA, check out her dark brown hair, you guys! Last time we heard from Brit, she was showing off *that* Jeremy Scott for adidas gold jacket in her “Scream & Shout (Remix)” vid and sporting a slick blonde ponytail, but now the star’s getting back to her roots —literally— with her chestnut brown hue, which she debuted at the event.

While Britney’s gone brunette several times in the past — back in 2006, 2007, and 2009 — her brown hair will forever remind us of oldschool Brit circa “Baby One More Time” era. So obviously that means the look is an automatic A+ in our book. Plus in Hollywood, sticking with the same hair for almost FOUR years is practically forever in celebrity time…so we’re happy to see her switching her sunny California locks up a bit. And as for whether she’ll stick with the darker ’do, well, only time will tell. But for now, let us know if you’re into Britney’s new hair!
