Unrecognizable Dawn French with short gray hair as her husband compares her to Anne Hegerty
Dawn French looked almost unrecognizable as she ditched her signature raven for a short gray pixie cut.
The 63-year-old star looked a far cry from her iconic onscreen Vicar of Dibley character when she debuted her new look on Instagram Monday as she kissed her salt and pepper natural hair.
She first flaunted her lighter hair, which she styled with a shorter bob, in June and fans couldn’t believe how well it suited her.
The actress took the plunge and chopped off the last of her long locks and opted for a bold pixie cut as her husband Mark Bignell compared her new look to that of quizhead and The Chase star Anne Hegerty.
Dawn took to the popular social media platform on Monday to share her new braids with a snapshot duo online.
The TV star wrote: “Hair update. 3 shades of gray (working up to 50).
“I cut even more. I think I’m giving him some solid Jamie Lee Curtis. The husband says that I give him full Anne Hegerty… Righto.
Unresponsive to the backhanded compliment, Dawn noted with confidence that the two TV stars are beautiful because she defined them as Ishtar, which means Babylonian and Assyrian goddesses of war and love.
She joked: “In your face, husband, for BOTH are Ishtar…”
And fans quickly inundated her comments section with a wave of rave reviews as she shared how women can kiss gray hair in style as she rocked her new hairstyle.
One fan wrote: “Oh yes Dawn. So the devil dresses in Prada. I love it.x “
Another added: “I love thiiiiiis, I love that you kiss gray! It looks so chic on you.
A third agreed: “Looking great Dawn xxx”, while another exclaimed: “Go for it !! You are very beautiful. I love these glasses too. X. “
In June, Dawn posted the first steps in phasing out her classic brunette bob, as she revealed her natural hair color without the hair dye enhancements.
But what shocked her loyal legion of fans the most was when she showed off her brilliantly shiny silver hair from her sleek cut.
She captioned the last update of her hair journey: “Going lighter little by little to happily welcome the gray… with a surprise undercut…! Hello, woman in her sixties… “
