Melissa Gorga dropped by the Bravo Clubhouse on July 8 to welcome Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen back from his brief Independence Day hiatus, and The Real Housewives of New Jersey star showed up rocking some seriously lighter locks.

We’re used to seeing Meliss sport a very dark brown (almost black ‘do), but on Sunday she showed off a new, warm brown hue.

Melissa’s lighter hair complimented her skin tone perfectly and certainly softened her look, but we’ve grown so accustomed to her darker hair over the years that it was jarring to see her rock a different color.

Which hair color do you prefer for Melissa?
