Selling Sunset's Chrishell Stause has just dropped another bombshell on us. While we're still recovering from the news that she's dating boss, Jason Oppenheim (which we'll see in Selling Sunset Season 5), this latest bombshell really takes the cake—Chrishell Stause has gone brunette!

This really seems to be the season of hair transformations, with Billie Eilish going brunette, and Florence Pugh chopping her long blonde hair for a red pixie cut. Now Chrishell has said ta-ta to her honey blonde locks and jumped fully on the brunette trend.

The real estate agent posted a carousel of snaps to Instagram of her new, bold look and we literally did a double-take.

She posed on the red carpet for the People's Choice Award, wearing a floor-length red dress that really made her new hair pop. It goes to show, your hair wields real power when it comes to your look. 

Chrishell’s fellow co-stars showered the comments with love, as true friends should. New girl, Emma Hernan, founder of Emma’s Empanadas and who also attended the awards with Chrishell, commented: “YAS!!!! MY SEXY TRUFFLE 😍😍😍”.

Heather Rae-Young wrote: “❤️❤️❤️🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 ya girl I did a triple take when I saw you tonight”.

Amanza Smith said: “Sis????? Ha ha you look stunning! I’m actually changing mine on Thursday to RED!!! ❤️❤️❤️🕺🏽🕺🏽🕺🏽🕺🏽”.

We can’t help but think we’re seeing a trend appearing, with the likes of Billie Eilish, Gigi Hadid, and Hailey Bieber ditching their iconic blonde hair and opting for brown. 

We already know ‘expensive brunette’ is gaining traction—which is where you have natural-looking brown hair, with slight highlights to add dimension, a look you couldn’t get from a box dye, hence the term ‘expensive’. Now it seems dark brunette could be our go-to 2022 hair trend...

Sadly we probably won’t get to see Chrishell’s new look in Season five of Selling Sunset, as it’s already wrapped but we’re sure the drama will keep us occupied.
