It took us awhile to pick up our jaws off the floor when we saw typically blonde Real Housewives of New York star Sonja Morgan step out with some luscious red locks on Tuesday (August 7) at the GLAAD Manhattan Summer Event in New York. Not only did we love the look but we also thought Sonja was oh-so-brave to give her tresses a ruby look.

Turns out, it was a wig.

According to US Weekly, Sonja did not see a colorist to achieve the look but rather a custom wig-designer – Angelo David Salon in the City, to be exact.

Le sigh. We thought she’d gone full force with the new look.

She did reach out to her Twitter followers to ask, “shld I keep RED hair?” so maybe she was just testing the red-headed waters before making a color commitment!

What do you think of Sonja with a fiery mane? To keep or not to keep?
