Melissa Gorga is rocking a bold new look! Or, maybe we should say Melissa Gorga is rocking a bold not-so-new look? The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member has gone back to her roots with a fresh, darker color, and looks absolutely fabulous. 

How to Watch

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

Melissa unveiled her latest hairstyle in a series of photos she shared to Instagram on July 22. The darker brown locks were loosely styled in a lowkey beach wave, which is totally perfect for spending the summer at her beautiful $1 million waterfront home at the Jersey Shore.

 “So I did it,” Melissa captioned the post. “Back to my Jersey Girl, Italian girl roots. Brunette power baby.” 

It looks like Melissa’s husband, Joe Gorga, loves her new hairstyle just as much as she does. “Finally [you’re] back!” he wrote. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fashionista Dorit Kemsley also weighed in, adding, “Love it @melissagorga you look gorgeous!” while Mike Shouhed of Shahs of Sunset commented, “Good look for you.” 

Melissa even got some love from another celeb who is famous for embracing her “Jersy Girl, Italian girl roots”: Jenni “JWoww” Farley. “Omg stunning,” the Jersey Shore cast member wrote with a few heart-eyed emojis sprinkled in. 

As if Melissa’s gorgeous new brunette hair wasn’t flawless enough, she debuted the look while sporting a sizzling all-white outfit. The mom of three styled a pair of white, high rise, lace-up jeans with a simple white tank, and some layered gold necklaces, including one that says, “Wifey.”
