Sharon Osbourne's Iconic Red Hair Is Now A Distant Memory
Sharon Osbourne has become the latest celeb to embrace the grey as she ditches her notorious red hair for good.
When you hear the words 'Sharon Osbourne', two things likely spring to mind: a screechy British accent, and that shaggy, burgundy 'can I speak to the manager'-esque cut.
Sharon and her iconic hair have been all but inseparable for almost two decades now. But not anymore.
The 67-year-old star has debuted a complete transformation, opting to embrace her natural silvery locks for the very first time.
Her hair stylist took to Instagram to show off his handywork, calling his client a "gorgeous, humble, and sweet soul."
Celebrity colourist, Jack Martin, explained it took eight hours to strip the hair of the red dye and achieve the metallic white look.
Sharon has 100 percent white hair and she was colouring her hair once a week dark vibrant red for the past 18 years. She explained to me that she wanted to do this transformation a long time ago but every time she attempts it ends up with a disaster.
"Sharon was very tired of colouring her hair once a week and she was obligated to since she is on TV almost every day hosting her popular TV show," he said, referring to Sharon's latest stint as a panelist on CBS' 'The Talk'.
The Instagram post has garnered more than 60,000 likes, and an abundance of comments commending Sharon for her decision to embrace her natural white locks.
And Sharon's not the first celebrity to turn to the stylist to help them go grey.
Jack Martin is also the man behind Jane Fonda's flicky salt and pepper crop that she debuted at last week's Academy Awards.
"Her goal colour was a silver icy blonde to surprise everyone at the 2020 Oscars, presenting the final award," he captioned his happy snap standing alongside Jane.
More and more of Hollywood's mature women are embracing their natural grey hair, setting an important precedent for ordinary women.
After decades of being told aging is something we have to resist, 2020 may very well be the year of growing older with style.
