Public relations maven Roxy Jacenko has ditched her signature blonde locks for a more natural and subdued look.

The businesswoman may not have lasted long on SAS Australia, but she is still living her best life running her Sweaty Betty empire.

For years, she has been identifiable to fans through her always perfectly dyed blonde hair that never dares to reveal a single brown root.

It would be understandable if her fans weren’t even aware that she isn’t a natural blonde.

The Sydney socialite took to Instagram to reveal her new look.

In the post, she shared a selfie that she took in her closet to reveal her new short brown hair.

She captioned post, “Went to work blonde came home as my 18 year old self – a natural brunette! Thank you @michaelkellycolourist – killed it. @salon.lane.”

Anyone who has dyed their hair colour outside of their natural shade for years can relate to how weird it would feel to return to their roots.

However, Roxy provides a good reason to ditch the faux locks and become reacquainted with your natural hair.

It appears Roxy’s famous friends have also shared their approval of her new look in the post’s comments section.

Influencer and entrepreneur Elle Ferguson commented, “OBSESSED,” and Samantha Jade exclaimed, “Omg stunning! I love it.”

It wasn’t just her well-known friends who were frothing her new look, but her fans seem to approve of the hair colour.

One fan gushed, “Love it Rox.”

However, some people were not so keen on the change and gave the unsolicited advice that she return to her blonde locks as it suits her better.  

“I like the brunette but my favourite is the blonde you,” said a fan and anther mentioned, “Nice but better blonde.”

Roxy, who is the mother of two Pixie, 8, Hunter, 4, and married to banker Oliver Curtis, has had her fair share of controversies, so it is unlikely that little comments about her hair will throw her off.

The couple have faced many uphill battles during their relationship, most notably when Roxy’s husband was jailed for insider trading.

When talking to WHO magazine in 2019, Roxy appeared to make light of the situation by making a comment at their expense.

“But then he saw me and knew he was making a dreadful mistake. If only I’d had hindsight on my side. I thought I was marrying Richie Rich. Richie Rich ended up in jail,” she said.

Well, hopefully, her husband is supportive of the brunette look.
