Jennifer Love Hewitt: Better As A Blonde?

Jennifer Love Hewitt is trying out a new hair color in her attempt to get her ‘momjo’ back following the birth of her baby girl Autumn this past November. She debuted lush blonde locks when she was a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier this week. The actress has had shoulder length brunette hair for several years now.

While attending an event for her collection at A Pea in the Pod, she was asked how she likes the new hue.

“I love it!” she told PEOPLE magazine. “I was just inside with the baby and I felt like I was ready for a change. As Giuliana Rancic says, I wanted to get my ‘momjo’ back! I got my mojo back, I wanted my ‘momjo.’”

Jennifer shared a before and after photo with her fans via Twitter.

Love Hewitt is loving being a mom to Autumn, and she says her baby girl loves to dance. She recently talked about not having lost all of her pregnancy weight yet, and that trying to do so isn’t easy.

“It’s hard, it’s really hard,” she said during a recent interview. “I wasn’t sure where I was going to fall and what was going to happen and how I was going to feel. It just feels great to sort of be honest about the fact that it is tough.”

And speaking of her A Pea in the Pod line of clothing–she admits that she’s still wearing some of her maternity clothes.

“There is just where I feel good right now,” she said. “Everything hasn’t returned back to where I want it to be and put on my other clothes and feel good about that.”

Jennifer Love Hewitt isn’t sweating over those last few pounds, however. She’s much too busy enjoying her baby, and since she has a daughter she wants to be sure she’s conveying the right kind of message–even though she’s still just a baby.

“I have a girl so I want her to see some day why her mom has good self-esteem and good body issues,” she said. “It gets you down sometimes, I’m not going to lie. I’ve had days where I’m like, ‘Ugh, I wish this was easier.’ But it’s not, and that’s OK.”

Jennifer Love Hewitt needn’t worry. She looks fabulous–and her new blonde hair color should significantly lift her spirits. It’s a perfect spring and summer shade for the actress.
