The time of year when the leaves—and many a head of hair!—change color.
While lighter locks tend to trend in the summer months, autumn's slightly colder climes often inspire gals to go to the deliciously dark side.
Sharing a shot taken by celebrity photographer Steve Erle at Los Angeles' Siren Studios, McCord showed off her new hair color with a retro chic hairstyle featuring a side deep side part and curled locks.
The chocolate hue definitely complements the former 90210 star, making her gorgeous green eyes pop. And bringing out her best features is exactly what hairstylist, George Papanikolas wanted to do when creating a new look for the 26-year-old.
