Kathryn Dennis debuted a new blonde look during the recently aired two-part reunion special for “Southern Charm” season seven and during a new interview, the mother of two confirmed that she has no plans to return to her natural red hair anytime soon.
“Chleb really likes it blonde and likes it short, so I’m going to keep [the color] for a bit,” Dennis confirmed to PEOPLE magazine on February 8, giving a nod to the thoughts of her boyfriend, Chleb Ravenell.

“I like it right now. I’ll get sick of it soon. And probably dye it pink,” she continued. “I’m realizing blondes do have a little more fun. It’s been nice to have a new hairdo for the new year.”
According to Dennis, she has been thinking about dying her hair blonde for “a few years” and felt that the “Southern Charm” season seven reunion taping would be the perfect time for her to try out the new hue, and to share it with her many fans.

“I feel like every reunion I always kind of try and serve a good look and so this year, I was like, ‘Why not just do go blonde?’ And that was it,” Dennis explained.
Moving on to her “low drama” relationship with Ravenell, Dennis said the two of them are “building a life together.”
“We haven’t said the word marriage,” she said. “But we do talk about more long-term plans, probably more than my previous relationships, ever.”
