Jesy Nelson debuts new fiery orange hair – and we love it!

Recently, we reported that Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson had switched up her trademark brunette balayage hair in favour of ginger locks. Which is why it came as even more of a surprise, that she has undergone yet another mane change! Yep, that’s right, the star logged on to social media to reveal a bold new orange hair hue – and we love it!

Taking to Instagram, the 25-year-old singer shared a selfie (complete with dog filter, naturally) unveiling her bright new look to her 2.3 million loyal followers. So, if you want to see Jesy’s new look, keep scrolling, but be prepared for some major hair envy!

As well as thanking her Headmasters colourist for making her “hair and colour feel so fabulous”, Jesy also hashtagged #gingerspice, a nod to one of our all-time favourite redheads, Geri Halliwell.

Her bold new look comes just after the news broke that Little Mix have achieved an amazing 3 Brit Award nominations this year for Best British Group, Best British Single and Best British Music Video! So clearly it’s a time for celebration. Credit: @jesynelson
