While Olivia Bowen occasionally plays around with the colour of her hair – going bright pink just the other month – we don’t usually see her with anything other than her short blonde cut, which she often wears up in a loose bun.
So when she took us live-time through a complete hair transformation journey, going from short to very long lengths, we were pretty hooked on what the outcome would be.
Thankfully the ex Love Islander has just posted the results of her makeover on Instagram, and it’s just as glam as we could have hoped for.
“I felt like having a little glam change for a while… you guys know I love my short hair but I honestly feel like a princess with this hair, I haven’t had anything like this before & I’m sooooo happy with it,” she says.
“I really just needed a girly moment! It’s super soft & I just keep swishing it around the gaff – let’s see how long this hairstyle lasts… you all know I like to mix it up.”
There’s probably no secret to how Olivia suddenly added a good ten inches onto her hair – she had extensions fitted.
Tagging in Easilocks in most of her stories, Olivia seemed delighted about being in the hair salon for the day, saying “they literally have got so much hair, and it’s so soft!”
The type of extension Olivia has is called an i-tip, which gets applied using no heat. The i-tips tend to last around three to four months before needing maintenance, so let’s see whether Liv keeps them in for that long before going back to short hair!
Olivia joins a host of other stars who have gone for more drastic hair changes since lockdown ended. Just this week Malin Andersson went from brunette to purple hair, and Jessie J went back to her “Do it Like a Dude” days with a blunt fringe.
It seems everyone is just desperate to get back into a hair salon to try out a new look after four months of home hair maintenance.
