Bye-bye, blonde! Rita Ora debuted a darker ombré hairstyle while appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday, August 30.

The "Poison" singer, 25, who presented at the 2016 MTV VMAs, previously rocked bleached blonde locks from root to tip. While her ends are still close to the hue that they used to be, her new dye job added faux "roots" that have a light chestnut brown color.

The new look comes after the Kosovo native wrapped her hosting gig on the VH1 reprisal of America's Next Top Model, which boasts Ashley Graham, stylist Law Roach and Paper magazine editor Drew Elliott as judges. "Tyra [Banks] thank you queen for passing me your irreplaceable crown I'll proudly be your princess, thank you for allowing me to carry on your legacy!" the Fifty Shades of Grey actress wrote of the revamped TV show, which will premiere in October on VH1, via Instagram in July. "I can't wait to make you proud!! Let the madness begin!! @antmvh1 #newHOSTALERT."

As Us Weekly previously reported, Banks announced that the long-running CW reality series would end after cycle 22, in October 2015. “TYRA MAIL!” she tweeted, imitating the “mail” contestants would get on the show. “Thinking #ANTM22 should be our last cycle. I truly believe it's time. May your pics be forever fierce. Keep on Smizing! Tyra.”

The competition-based show, which got picked up by VH1 after a fan outcry, produced several well-known models, including now-actress Analeigh Tipton, Adrianne Curry, CariDee English, Yaya DaCosta, Lisa D’Amato, Whitney Thompson, Dani Evans and Eva Marcille.
