Our ultimate beauty guru Michelle Keegan doesn’t post enough on Instagram about her looks, for our liking. Sometimes we get treated to a little BTS on her Stories when she’s filming something, but her grid posts are few and far between.

Now, the actress is treating us to a look at a very glamorous new hairstyle – and it’s not one she usually wears. Michelle, 35, tends to wear her long and thick hair down in waves, but she’s just swapped this style for a low bun featuring face-framing tendrils.

We’re calling this type of bun a “prom bun” due to it being a popular hairstyle with prom goers. That’s not to say that Michelle looks like she’s just hopped in the back of a limo next to a questionable date in an oversized suit. The star has made this kind of twisted low bun look incredibly chic. We also love how she’s given her loose fringe sections a slight curl, to add movement to the style, and how the crown section of her hair has plenty of lift.

Michelle posted a carousel of her look to her Instagram grid, captioning the series: “Don’t worry my coat’s in the boot”.

Fans have responded with witty remarks about a “Northern lass” never needing a coat in winter. Others have spotted Michelle’s new hairstyle and have been quick to comment their love for it.

“This hair for the March wedding please,” said one future bride.

A second follower writes: “So beautiful! Love your hair like that,” while a third says: “You look incredible!”

This isn’t the first time Michelle has impressed us with an updated hair look in recent months. Just before the festive season, the star’s hair colourist, Calum Tierney, informed us via Instagram that Michelle had decided to add some lighter pieces to her dark base colour – and the result of this transformation was *chef’s kiss*.

“After filming in Australia Michelle went darker for her role, so we started a journey of going lighter to more of a mocha brown using Wella Hair,” Calum captioned the selfie of Michelle.

With mocha shades and “brownie batter” brunettes trending for 2023, we might just have to bring this snap of Michelle in with us to our next hair appointment!
