We're used to seeing Love Island stars with hair makeovers, but hair makeunders are less common. Faye Winter, star of Love Island 2021, however, is proving that she doesn't need the volume of hair extensions to look incredible.

In new Instagram Stories, the 27 year old poses with a very different beauty look which sees her swap her long, extensions-heavy tresses for her natural length and thickness. Wearing her hair in a ponytail, it's clear from the clips that Faye's hair is just a bit longer than shoulder length and is also golden in tone. Considering she's been wearing her hair in glamorous icy blonde waves these past few months, it's quite the change for the star.

When she was in the villa, Faye's hair was golden in tone, but she recently headed for a cool-toned hair transformation and shared a glimpse of her new hair colour on Instagram following her split from ex Teddy Soares. The exact tone of her colour is being called an 'oat milk blonde' by hair experts. This multi-tonal shade is set to be the hair colour for summer, with plenty of celebs already moving away from a warmer, darker blonde and towards the brighter, ashier shade. Rather than a bold platinum, oat milk blonde is a more neutral, beige-toned blonde with milky hues for a cool, sophisticated look.

From Faye's new Instagram Stories, it appears her hair extensions did most of the lightening work. Without the faux hair, the star's colour is much darker and warmer in tone – more of a golden blonde. By using extensions to lighten her hair, Faye is saving her ends plenty of potential bleach damage.

We say we're not used to seeing celebrity makeunders, but these past few months there have been a few instances where other former Love Islanders have swapped their glamorous looks for something a little more natural.

Take Tasha Ghouri, for example, who debuted a brand new shoulder-skimming style on her Instagram last Sunday. The reality star has previously styled her hair in lengthy waves, but took the plunge and went for the chop to celebrate the warmer weather ahead.

Captioning her photo: “I think summer is calling for a bob moment”, Tasha showcased her new style as she posed for photos in a green and black zebra print sequin bikini top. The influencer was on a trip to Cape Town for her work with Ann Summers.
