Back in June, Dawn showed off her hair transformation after ditching the brown hair-dye. 

She told her social media followers at the time that she trimmed off more of her locks, with her husband Mark Bignell even comparing her to The Chase star Anne Hegerty. 

Sharing a duo of snaps of her new shorter tresses, Dawn penned: ‘Hair update. 3 shades of grey (working up to the 50)

‘I’ve chopped even more off. I’m thinking I’m giving it solid Jamie Lee Curtis. Husband says I’m giving it full Anne Hegerty…. Righto.

‘In your face husband, coz BOTH are Ishtar…’

Dawn initially ditched her trademark style in favour of a bold new look to embrace the fact that she’s going grey and shared her hair transformation with her followers.

In the first picture, Dawn showed off the natural colour transformation.

Even more dramatically, in the second picture, Dawn lifted up her locks to reveal her brand new undercut – with the silver colouring in line with her approach to embrace going grey.

Captioning her two new photos, Dawn wrote: ‘Going lighter bit by bit to happily welcome the grey… with an undercut surprise..! Hello there woman in her 60s….’
