Gretchen Rossi may be a natural blonde, but her hair isn’t naturally long! for a while now, the Real Housewives of Orange County star has sported shoulder-length, layered locks, which she wears straight and occasionally curled.

But Gretchen recently made a startling hair transformation at the Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine 5 Year Anniversary Party on June 6, 2013. Working the red carpet in a strapless and belted black dress with a high-low hem, Gretchen Rossi flaunted some seriously long hair extensions as well.

Reaching all the way down to her waist, the soft curls gave the RHOC cast member a glamorous boost. We were so distracted by Gretchen’s hair makeover we almost forgot to peek at her best accessory: Her 4-carat yellow diamond engagement ring from fiance Slade Smiley.

But what do you think? Does Gretchen look great with longer locks, or is the Real Housewives of Orange County beauty better off with a shorter ‘do? Let us know by choosing one of the reaction buttons below!
