Love Island star Lauren Richardson is now a fully fledged red head.

Undergoing an image overhaul, Lauren (who became a show favourite on ITV2's Love Island last month) decided to ditch her usually blonde locks and channel her inner vixen with a brand new auburn hue.

Yesterday, the starlet took to Instagram to debut her new look, telling followers she had gone "back to her roots".

Who knew Lauren was really a red head?!

Posing for a selfie, the 26-year-old showed off her recent dye job for her fans to see, keeping her tresses sleek and straight. In her snap, Lauren's bonce looks drastically different and we have to say we're loving her new shade.

We're not the only ones! After noticing Lauren's new 'do, many were quick to comment. One user told her: "Omg! I like it!" While another said: "Love it Lauren!! It looks amazing xx."

Like Lauren, Love Island winner Jessica Hayes recently revamped her locks too.

The glamour model waved goodbye to her trademark red tresses, dying her hair a deep burgundy colour instead. Gorgeous!

Her salon visit came after she and her boyfriend Max Morley hit the headlines with their romance. Despite seeming pretty smitten with each other after they winning Love Island a few weeks back, reports suggested the pair had split following a series of heated rows.

Both Jess and Max have since hit out at such claims, proving they are still an item by spending the weekend together.

Defending their relationship, Max tweeted: "Can't understand why certain people are acting bitter and can't move on. Stop getting involved with mine and Jessica's relationship #GetOverIt."
