It's a new year and a new hairdo for Vanderpump Rules star Katie Maloney, who has given up her orange hair and is now back to being brunette!

Katie walked the red carpet at the People's Choice Awards on January 8 and showed off a very different look than we've been used to seeing from her. 

Indeed, Katie had been sporting orange-ish hair for quite some time, as seen in the photo above that was taken about six months ago. However, she's now back to her much-darker natural color, as seen at left.

So what do you think of Katie's new look? We love her hair no matter what color it is, and there's no question that the orange hue was fun. But we're digging the brown hair on her, since it makes her look a bit more mature. We approve, K!

Katie has been enduring quite a bit of drama this season on Vanderpump Rules. This week's episode was a particularly tough one for her, as she and boyfriend Tom Schwartz got into a huge fight, which ended with Katie grabbing Tom's wrist as he tried to throw his drink on her. Yikes.

Do you prefer Katie's hair to be brown or orange?
