Lea Michele is changing it up for marriage. The Glee actress, who recently married retail exec Zandy Reich, took to social media this week to reveal a fresh, new hairstyle following her wedding and her tropical honeymoon.

The Scream Queens star, 32, stopped by Nine Zero One salon to meet with her longtime stylist Nikki Lee. In time for new season, Michele opted for a fresh chop and a subtle-but-lighter color change. Lee called Michele’s new hue “sunlight brunette” on social media, while also adding the salon went with “a fresh length for this newlywed!”

“On Lea’s honeymoon, her hair got lighter,” Lee told Refinery29 this week. “So I just glossed her hair to that beautiful sunlight color—we wanted to make sure it didn’t get brassy. It’s the perfect color for spring and summer; it’s part from the salon and part natural from enjoying her honeymoon in paradise.”

Growing up I was never the girl who knew exactly what her wedding would look like Whether it would be big or small or what my dress would look like. And when I got engaged we didn’t know if we should do east coast or west coast or destination. But one thing I have always known….is that @lisavorce would be my wedding planner. I’ve been secretly stalking Lisa’s instagram for years since she so beautifully did @ashleytisdale wedding and the moment zandy and I got engaged she was the first call I made. @lisavorce you are the best of the best. You do what you do so effortlessly and your attention to detail is outstanding. You have an incredible gift and the way you work with everyone makes the process so fun and easy! Zandy and I can’t thank you enough for making our dream wedding come to life! We are forever grateful and miss you already. Here’s just a small glimpse at what was the greatest day of our lives… ( : all photos done by our amazing wedding photographer @ktmerry we love you!!! )

On Michele’s wedding day, the bride walked down the aisle with her deep brunette tresses pulled back into a classic chignon that paired elegantly to her wedding dress by Monique Lhuillier.

“It’s important to [Zandy and me] that we look back on our photos, and that they’re classic,” she previously told People. “I wanted to stay away from a lot of current trends.”

Other stars to cut their hair after the wedding include Lauren Conrad and Allison Williams.
