She is a natural blond like her mother, but she dyes her hair black on occasions because she doesn't want people to recognize her as merely the daughter of Cheryl Ladd. She wants to get acting jobs on her own merit and talent. She appears in many of her films with dark hair, such as The Specials (2000) and Never Been Kissed (1999). However, she seems to have decided to stick with her blond hair in recent films like Cabin Fever (2002).

I love to travel but hate traffic and planes. I wish I could just beam myself anywhere instantly. Wiggle my nose or shake my ass - bam! - I'm in Quebec.
