After a heartbreaking year, Kim Kardashian needed something to brighten her spirits -- and her hair!

The 31-year-old E! reality star debuted a new honeyed hue on Twitter Tuesday, but it's hardly the first time Kardashian has experimented with a new look.

"I swear I love changing my hair up," she tells Us Weekly. "It makes me feel like a new me!"

"It's like the season was ending so I wanted a fresh start now," she explains. "I'm loving it."

Kardashian -- who filed for divorce from NBA player Kris Humphries after just 72 days of marriage -- has sported bang extensions and blonde highlights in the past.
