Instagram has gone absolutely insane for Love Island star Katie Salmon's latest hairstyle - but it isn't what it seems...

On Saturday afternoon (24 November), the reality star took to Instagram to share a few selfies before her big birthday night out at Cafe de Paris in London's West End, and when though we were totally mesmerised by her power brows, flawless highlight and rosebud pink lips, it was actually the stunner's new hair that garnered the most attention.

Katie is famous for her chocolate brown tresses, but being a total beauty chameleon, she fancied an overhaul in time for her big birthday bash and took her trailing lengths a striking shade of platinum blonde. In fact, we almost failed to recognise her as we scrolled through our feed!

However, there's absolutely no fooling us.

Uh huh, that's right - instead of hitting the bottle of bleach, Katie - who just launched her debut lingerie line with Prodigal Fox - enlisted none other than celebrity hairstylist and super-talented wig maker Carl Bembridge ( to fit her with a beautiful blonde hair piece by Crown Couture. No chemicals, no damage - simples!

Name sound familiar? Well it should do, because Carl has tended to the locks of Geordie Shore's Chloe Ferry, Ex On The Beach's Charlotte Dawson and TOWIE's Chloe Sims to name but a few of our favourite celebrities.

But back to Katie!

Of course, it wasn't long before the comments came flooding in for her new 'do. The verdict? OB-SESSED.

"You look lush with blonde hair, hun!" wrote one, and another said, "Oh my god Kate! Proper love this!"

A handful even mistook her for a very famous reality star...

"Legit thought this was Kylie Jenner!" wrote one. Another commented, "Wait whatttttttt I thought this was Kylie Jenner. Girl you slay you slay."

Slay, she does. Now if you'll excuse us, we're off to kidnap Carl for our own blondie make-over. Oh, and Happy belated Birthday, Katie!
