The newly single 19-year-old — who split from her 53-year-old husband, Doug Hutchison, in November — is embracing her dark side by dyeing her trademark platinum tresses a dark brunette color. She showed off the new look at the Wowie Awards on Dec. 12. See more photos of Courtney Stodden.

"Lately I've been a little bit of a daredevil, and I'm trying to enter into the next chapter of my life," the Celebrity Big Brother U.K. star explained to Us Weekly at the Globe Theatre in L.A. "I thought this was kind of a good example to prove to myself that I can do it. It was a huge risk, but I'm glad I did it."

That said, she's still getting used to the idea of herself as a brunette. "It's really new. When I walk by a mirror I'm thinking I'm blonde," she said of the makeover, which happened earlier this week. "Like, 'Oh my God — who is that? It's me!'"

"I feel born again," she added. "I'm excited to go out and see the life of a brunette."

She's also excited to see the life of a single 19-year-old. Having married Hutchison when she was just 16, Stodden missed out on some typical teenage rites of passage — like getting her driver's license.

"When I was 16 I got my marriage license, but I didn't get my driver's license," she quipped. "So those kinds of things I'm really excited about doing."
