Bethenny Frankel Chops Off & Lightens Her Hair in Dramatic Makeover (PHOTO)

bethenny frankel on bravoBethenny Frankel's been a reality star, talk show host, and entrepreneur, but the hair under all of those hats has pretty much always been the same: dark brown and long. 'Til now!


The Real Housewives of New York star kicked off the unofficial start of summer off with a bit of a makeover -- chopping her signature mane and lightening it a bit to boot! The new look is fresh, edgy, and definitely different for the celeb mama to 5-year-old Bryn.

Go Shawty! #theBisback

So fun!

If you can't Bethenny shared with Us that she owes her new style to Serge Normant Salon in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood where stylist DJ Quintero did her cut and colorist Gina Gilbert gave her dark tresses that soft, ecaille-style chestnut hue.

Sure, a haircut may just be a haircut, but in this case, Bethenny may have felt she could use the new hairstyle as a pick-me-up. (After all, she's been on quite the emotional rollercoaster over the past few years ... even recently reuniting with her estranged stepfather, John Parisella who told her that her mom never wanted children. Ugh.)

In other words, maybe there's more to this makeover than meets the eye ... But whatever her reason for trying out this fresh look, she's nailing it!
