Lucy Mecklenburgh has decided it’s time for a change.
The former TOWIE star pulled out all of the stops for a store launch in London last night, and there was one thing in particular about her look that grabbed everyone’s attention.
Nope, it wasn’t her rockin’ bod’, which was complimented by her daring white bodycon dress, but it was her new hairdo that was the talk of the night.
Taking to Instagram to showcase her transformation, the 24-year-old explained simply, ‘Fancied a new look’.
The Results With Lucy owner is newly single, having split from Louis Smith earlier in the year, and she’s given us all a lesson in how to handle a break-up in style.
Clearly it’s not a must that you switch up your look following a split, but there’s nothing quite like a new ‘do to get you feeling ready to take on a new chapter.
Lucy donned a slinky knee-length pencil dress, which hugged her curves, and she finished off the statement look with some metallic heels and a fluffy scarf.
Her new fringe seemed to trigger a mixed response from fans. Comments on the star’s Instagram included: ‘You look Gorg but I think no fringe or a side fringe suits you more’ and ‘Love the new look true sophistication’ [sic].
But most didn’t believe that the fitness guru had actually gone for the chop, thinking instead that it was a clever styling trick using the leftover hair from her bun.

Another comment read, ‘Must be one of those clip in fringes?’
Either way, we think Lucy looked in-credible.
And the faux fringe is a neat little trick that we might just have to try for ourselves one Friday night…
