Fall is for pumpkin spice latte runs, pulling out your favorite sweaters, and apparently making major hair changes. Lots of Bravolebs have been switching up their looks this season and there appears to be a trend. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

Instead of opting for darker dye jobs, which is typically common during colder seasons, several Bravolebrities have been trying out lighter hair colors. Take Kyle Richards, who recently ditched her signature jet black color for a warm chestnut hue with caramel highlights. Meanwhile, Christine "Bugsy" Drake traded her sandy blonde mane for a bright platinum blonde bob, and Cynthia Bailey debuted a lighter honey blonde hair color just in time for her October wedding.

Scroll down to see all of their fierce transformations, and get ready for some fresh and unexpected fall hair inspo.

The Below Deck Mediterranean cast member ditched her light brown strands and went "back to blonde" in early September with a bright vanilla balayage look. 

The Shahs of Sunset mom took us all by surprise when she lightened her dark mane with a blend of warm golden blonde highlights. "After a few years of super dark hair, I decided to switch it up!" she wrote on Instagram

After her move to New York City earlier this fall, Kandi Burruss' daughter Riley tried her hand at an array of playful hairstyles, including her recent honey blonde hair styled in loose waves.

In September, The Real Housewives of Potomac alum also debuted a new look inspired by autumn. Charrisse got a cute ombré lob with honey blonde highlights that gives off warm pumpkin spice vibes. "It’s something about the change of this season that makes me want to switch it up a little bit so I started with my hair," she shared at the time.

The Below Deck Mediterranean chief stewardess recently chopped off her hair and debuted a posh bob with a new, bright platinum blonde hair color. "A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life," she captioned a snap of her new look, quoting Coco Chanel.

In late September, The Real Housewives of Atlanta mom added a touch of autumn spice to her look with a fresh auburn hair color. Then, ahead of her October 10, 2020, wedding with Mike Hill, she lightened up her long strands even more with a fresh honey blonde hue, which she's been rocking ever since.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills mom recently traded her signature jet black hue for a lighter shade featuring a warm blend of chestnut brown, caramel, and honey blonde hues that perfectly complement her bright green eyes.
