Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson has just posted a new photo of herself that makes us say, "Woo hoo!"

Vicki had, by her own admission, a "bad hair year" on the show's recently completed Season 8. We thought Vicki's hair looked great, but she apparently wasn't wowed by it. So it was clearly time for a change. 

And now, change has come. The star has unveiled her newest hairstyle on Twitter, and we're loving the shorter, slightly layered look. How cute are those new, wispier bangs? We more than approve, Vick!

"@tyalexandersalon Love my hair!" she tweeted at Ty Alexander Salon in Newport Beach as a thank you for the fine scissor work.

We love everything about this photo, including Vicki's big smile. She certainly seems happy with the new coif, which is great news.

In fact, did she opt for a new 'do as a way of marking a new period in her life? She's certainly had some ups and down over the past few months  between getting sued by her Vicki's Vodka partner to dealing with her issues with on-again, off-again beau Brooks Ayers  so we wouldn't blame her for wanting to start fresh. 

But what do YOU think of the shorter tresses? Are you glad Vicki is trying something different, or did you prefer her previous style?
