Kathy Wakile keeps switching up her signature chocolate brown locks. Back in April, The Real Housewives of New Jersey beauty's go-to stylist Julius Michael revealed that he'd touched up her color and cut a whopping six times in six months. Now Kathy let Michael and his team pick up the scissors and go for a much more dramatic chop.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

"She (@kathywakile) said 'I need a change,'" Michael explained on Instagram about how this haircut and color from senior stylist Joelle Faraj came about, leading to a shoulder-length lob with more than six inches taken off Kathy's original style. Then Kathy got a color boost in the form of a rich chocolate brown base with baby lights. The results? "Super shiny #sexyhair that doesn’t look burnt, fake or dead," Michael says. 

Kathy is into her new look: "So love my new cut & style," she wrote on Instagram.

That is shiny hair! Here's Kathy's previous length, for a "before" photo. 

At any length, this color looks fantastic! Michael summed it up: "Love a deep rich #haircolor that makes my clients eyes pop especially when they are as beautiful as Kathy’s!"
