The Skinny Girl founder debuted the vibrant shade, courtesy of celebrity hairstylist Tokyo Stylez (the mane master behind all Kylie Jenner’s wigs!), on the red carpet during her Skinny Girl Candy launch event in N.Y.C. Tuesday afternoon.

Frankel, 45, seems to be loving her new look, sharing that she’s “ready to find out if redheads have more fun.” She teamed the bold do with a sleek black-and-white jumpsuit and a sexy smize.

Just minutes before stepping out on the red carpet, Frankel gave fans a sneak peek of her red locks in an Instagram snapshot, captioned: “Soon to come… @kristoferbuckle @tokyostylez.”

And if you find yourself entangled in a real vs. faux debate, we have the answer. Tokyo Stylez created the look using Pink Couture hair extensions, according to his Instagram.
