Tuesday night’s Dancing with the Stars finale may have earned winners Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough the most attention — but Catherine Giudici, the fiancée of former DWTS contestant Sean Lowe, certainly didn’t go unnoticed.

The recent Bachelor winner debuted a new ombré hair color that took her dark brown hair to a lighter shade that fades into a honey hue.

“I wanted to change my hair because we moved to L.A. — and I thought [tonight] would be a good time to debut it and have it mean something a little bit more than on just a regular Tuesday,” Giudici told PEOPLE in the confetti-filled ballroom right after the show ended.

The reality starlet, who saw colorist Erick Orellana, of Beverly Hills’s Jonathan & George salon, says the process of choosing what to do with her hair was “a collaboration for sure.”

Explains Giudici: “I love it. Just being in the sun, it’s definitely going to punch it up as it goes on. [Orellana] knew I was low maintenance. I don’t always want to come back and do roots.”

Agrees Orellana, “It’s a natural looking color that doesn’t require changing what she originally had,” he says. “It actually enhances natural darker features for a lighter, summery golden look with less upkeep.”

But above all else, Giudici — who had previewed the look on Instagram — got the stamp of approval for her new look from the one who matters most.

“Sean loves it,” she says of Lowe. “He picked me up [from the salon] and said it was beautiful. He’s happy with it.”

It’s natural looking? Uhhhh nothin’ natural about two extreme colors black then sudden blonde on an Asian. LOL I thought she got it cut or maybe went curly – now THAT would be something to report. Geesh…

Are you serious?!!! This is silly, I only wanted to look because I thought it was a new shorter cut. Please, she barely changed a thing, SO NOT NEWS WORTHY!
