We've always loved Melissa Gorga's hair on Real Housewives of New Jersey, but she's apparently decided that it's time to switch things up a bit. 

The reality star has taken to Instagram to post a photo of herself in her hairdresser's chair while she gets some coloring work done.

"Just a typical day @bottegasb lol....," she captions the shot of herself on October 24, giving a shout-out to the Bottega Salon & Boutique in Jersey where she got the 'do.

Then, later that evening, she posted a photo of the final product, as she went out for a night on the town with some gal pals.

"Step & repeat!" she captions the group photo with her now-blonder tresses. "Franklin lakes moms... #ladiesnightout."

We think Melissa looks amazing with her blonde streaks, and we're happy that she's keeping it up. Then again, she would look gorgeous no matter what color her hair is.

You may recall that Melissa once had very dark hair, and she started lightening it in the summer of 2012. Clearly, she likes the way the blonde hair looks on her, as she has never looked back.

So what do you think of her new locks? Do you think she should go for a more natural color? Or do you think that the blonder, the better?
