Lindsay Lohan's Return to Redhead

Posted Thursday March 8, 2012 9:10 PM GMT

Opting to switch things up with a different look, Lindsay Lohan debuted her newly reddened hairdo while out in Beverly Hills, CA on Thursday (March 8).

Exiting a doctor's office with a pack of cigarettes in-hand, the "Mean Girls" starlet - who's a natural redhead - was all smiles as she joked around with paparazzi before hopping into her nearby ride.

The sighting comes after Miss Lohan spent the past weekend as host of "Saturday Night Live" - which ended up garnering a lofty 7.4 million viewers to rank as the most-watched episode this season aside from the Charles Barkley hosted premiere (which followed the Super Bowl).

And while she was widely panned by critics and viewers following her appearance, LiLo saw stars such as Zooey Deschanel come to her defense, as the "New Girl" actress told EW, "It’s so hard. And can I say something? I thought she did a really good job; everyone reads off cue cards. There were some people saying ‘She read off cue cards!’ Everyone — the cast members, the host — everyone reads off cue cards. That’s how it’s done, because they change the script right before, so you have to read off cue cards.”

Miss Deschanel added, “It’s a very hard thing to do. It was very fun — one of the best weeks of my life. It was a lot of rehearsal, a lot of work leading up to it, and it’s difficult. Live performances are its own thing, but it’s a wonderful thing. It takes a lot of energy.”
