When Scarlet Witch returned to the team around the time of the first Arkon storyline, her hair had changed from black to auburn. As with Black Widow, the new color was since stated to be the real one.

Actually, Wanda's original hair color was auburn when she appeared in the early X-Men issues (#4-#11) as part of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. She appeared in several X-Men issues with auburn hair. Then, when she joined the Avengers in #16, all of a sudden her hair was black. It continued to be black during her first Avengers stint, until her departure in Avengers #53. It was black when she made sporadic guest appearances in Spider-Man (#71) and the X-Men (#59-60). Then, in 1970, when she returned to the Avengers (#75, the first Arkon story, as Century states), it was colored auburn (though on the cover she sported black hair). The reason given (in a letter column a few issues later, IIRC) was that Roy Thomas had just discovered she originally had auburn hair in the X-Men books and he liked her original auburn color better.
