The Project viewers drew a collective gasp when Carrie Bickmore was beamed into their living rooms on Monday night sporting newly-dyed brown hair.
The show co-host was immediately flooded with compliments for her new look because with so much bad news in the world, it’s delightful to have something as simple as hair to lighten the mood of a nation still not sure how it feels about how many medals we won at the Olympics.
It even came up in conversation on Gogglebox last night.
It’s no secret that Bickmore, 35, made the change with beauty company Garnier. As their brand ambassador, she posted on Instagram on Monday morning that she’d “been up to something exciting… over the weekend for Garnier.”
The change is part of a new Garnier campaign promoting its at-home hair colour kits, and Bickmore is the face of it.
But a few cynics wanted to know whether Bickmore did in fact use a packet dye herself, claiming the change from blonde to brunette seemed extreme.
