Kandi Burruss has been a familiar face to Real Housewives of Atlanta for years now, but her former look is a far cry from the sophisticated style she’s rocking today!

The newly-married star posted a photo to Instagram for Throwback Thursday, and it looks like the gang’s all there — although their current wardrobes and haircuts are nowhere to be seen.

Kandi cozies up to pals Carmon Cambrice, Rasheeda Frost, Nikki Nicole, and Tobey Sanders in the pic, and it’s clear that, while their friendships may have endured, their style has definitely changed for the better.

“#tbt of @thereal_nikkinicole08 @rasheedadabosschick me @thefauxpro & @camcambi... I have no idea where we were,” Kandi captioned the cute photo.

It seems like just yesterday that Kandi was rocking that short, vibrantly-colored haircut, but she sports her long and dark hair just as effortlessly these days.

While Kandi remained a redhead until recently, she revealed that having her face on TV every week makes her more insistent about changing up her look on a regular basis.

“You start getting makeup all the time,” Kandi said of the first change to come when she hit the reality TV bigtime. “You feel like you have to have hair all the time, never wear the same outfit twice. You want to have new clothes. It's really expensive just to be on the show. And, well, yeah, I've changed my hair so much. I went from short hair to long hair and from red hair to blonde to black. So I do a lot with my hair."

What do you think of everyone’s former look? Do you prefer Kandi with long hair or her short, red ‘do?
