Dramatic makeover time! It takes a lot of guts to go from deep brunette to bright blonde in a single leap. Guts and an excellent hairstylist. Things Michelle Keegan obviously has in buckets.
The ex-Corrie babe has ditched her signature glossy brunette locks in favour of an edgy blonde ‘do. The star showed off her new hue on Instagram, posting a car-seat-selfie captioned, “No filter just sunlight… #otherside.” And it looks like her lighter locks have had an effect on her style, too. Mich’ looked like a true hipster in a shearling denim jacket, white tee and round shades finished off with *the* accessory of summer – the choker. The simple black ribbon necktie is a fave of Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Kim Kardashian who won’t be seen dead without the throwback extra. The overall vibe, way different from her usual look, worked perfectly with her cool blonde hair.
Another surprise we got when ogling this snap of Keegan is how silky the star’s hair looked. No sign of breakage or straw-like ends. We reckon hairdresser’s fave Olaplex has something to do with it. Going from dark to light isn’t as tough on the follicles as it used to be thanks to wonder product Olaplex. The magic mixture is added to the dye to help strengthen proteins within the hair during the bleaching process, saving locks from a battering.
Before seeing actual evidence of Michelle with her blonde look, we were a bit unsure as to whether the Our Girl actress could carry such a massive hair change off but she has! This new, cool, hipster Keegs is a fun change from polished ‘n’ glossy brunette Keegs. She *might* even look hotter than ever…
Hubby Mark Wright got in on the hair-sharing action, too, posting a video of him and Michelle dancing to Calvin Harris at Wireless. Michelle’s lightened locks can clearly be seen as the 29-year-old shimmies along to Harris’ set.
Michelle is set to star as Tina Moore in an upcoming ITV drama series chronicling the life of England captain Bobby Moore. The three-episode series is based on blonde Tina’s memoirs and possibly why Michelle has hit the bleach bottle.
The blonde locks have split Michelle’s fans with some saying they hope “it’s a wig” and others encouraging Wrighty’s wifey to “stay blonde!”
Whether it’s for a TV role or not, we’re into this newly blonded Keegan. Someone pass us the bleach!
