When the days start getting longer and tulips begin to bloom, we never fail to find ourselves in our stylist's chair begging for a brighter, blonder 'do. And we're not the only ones -- Jessica Alba was spotted out and about yesterday with seriously lighter locks.

We're happy to hear that the highlighted tresses are for her latest film, "The Killer Inside Me," because we think this babe is better as a brunette. But then again, Ms. Alba could spike her hair and dye it purple and look better than us at our very best.

What do you think?
