So much went down in Part 1 of The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 5 reunion: receipts were read, shade was thrown, cosmetic procedures were revealed, and one of the ladies even changed her hair amid all the drama.

It looks like Ashley Darby decided to refresh her look during the explosive sit-down. The mom, who is pregnant with her second child, kicked off the reunion with sleek burgundy strands that were slightly curled at the ends to complement her vibrant yellow dress. Then, midway through the reunion, Ashley appeared with a different hairstyle featuring tight wand curls. 

After the reunion aired, a fan brought the surprising hair switch-up to Ashley's attention on Instagram, and the Potomac 'Wife had a simple explanation.

"I wear my natural hair. This is all my hair. The curls fall," she shared. "So during a break my stylist curled it a bit more."
