the only way is essex star chloe meadows with long blonde hair

You won’t recognise Chloe Meadows with her new hair – she’s gone shorter AND darker!

This Essex girl just debuted a totally new look. 

One thing that The Only Way Is Essex star Chloe Meadows is famous for (other than being an original member of the girlband, of course) is her Barbie blonde hair. During filming and on social media she’s always seen wearing flowing extensions in a bright, light blonde.

But as much as we heart her pretty princess hair, change isn’t always a bad thing. Sharing a post-salon pic on insta, the reality star revealed that she’s gone for a double whammy of a makeover, not only cutting off a significant amount off of her ends but also opting for a much darker brown shade, too!

TOWIE’s Chloe Meadows new cut and colour

25-year-old Chloe showed off her new hair on Instagram, posting a photo of her new hair in front of a Kim and Kanye style flower wall. Her caption reads: “Absolutely obsessed with my new shorter hair!” and tbh so are we!

She’s traded in her waist-length locks for a shorter (but still below shoulder length) style, adding in some natural tousled curls for soft texture. She’s also dyed her strands a darker brunette shade with an ashy grey tint, giving her an on-trend, cool toned effect. Credit: @chloejmeadows

Chloe kept fans updated with live behind-the-scenes shots from the salon chair on Instagram stories, so they could watch along as the transformation unfolded. It’s even clearer in this screenshot just how much shorter her hair is now and looks to have layers of varying lengths worked in too for extra body. Credit@chloejmeadows
