Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards is trying out a lighter 'do, and we're loving it!

The reality star is known for her long, dark locks, so it was definitely a bit of a shocker when Kyle revealed a photo on Instagram on September 15 in which her hair is much lighter than we've ever seen it on the show. Of course, what isn't shocking was that Kyle looks as amazing with the new mane as she always does.

"Decided to lighten and cut my hair w/ my girl @hairbypamellab," she captioned the pic. "Needed a little change :)" 

Now the big question is, did something prompt this change? Sometimes, people undergo a major look transformation when something big is going on in their life. And we know that Kyle and her Real Housewives co-stars are rumored to be embroiled in a rather big feud of late, so we're wondering if the stress from that fight has anything to do this. 

That said, Kyle wished a happy 52nd birthday to Lisa Vanderpump via Twitter over the weekend, so it appears that those two are still on solid terms. We had previously heard that Kyle and Brandi Glanville were getting closer, now that Brandi is supposedly on the outs with Lisa. 

So regardless of what spurred the change, we're loving Kyle's lighter locks. We more than approve, Kyle!
