You always can tell big changes are ahead when a woman decides to change up her hairstyle!

So when Kim Kardashian tweeted a pic of herself on Monday showing off a much lighter look, it was the first big sign of 2012 that reality starlet is ready for a fresh start.

She posted the following image along with the message, “I dyed my hair lighter yesterday! I’m loving it! New hair color = new beginnings for me. You like?”

Kim’s colorist, Rebecca Friedman, co-owner of the Goodform Salon in Hollywood, said it took nearly three hours in the chair to get Kim’s color right, which she describes as a “cooler, chocolate-y brown” with “sun-kissed streaks that are close to her childhood color.”

Our vote: A perfect 10

Tell us! What do you think of Kim’s lighter locks?
