Love Island’s Laura Anderson has rid herself of her long blonde extensions and gone all out with a completely different hairstyle - and we like it A LOT.

The reality TV star posted a picture of herself next to a Christmas tree to show off her new natural look to all her followers.

She wrote on Instagram, “Got bored, dyed my hair #happysunday”.

And her Love Island pals were instantly smitten too, taking to the comments to show their appreciation.

Montana Brown wrote, “I LOVE IT 😍”, and this year’s winner Amber Gill agreed, “I’m obsessed!!!!”.

Anna Vakili also joined in and said she didn’t recognise Laura with her shorter and more natural style.

“OMG didn’t even recognise you! Love it 🔥”, she said.

Her hairstyle transformation came straight after she compared two pictures of herself with short and long hair on Instagram, to show how she relied on the magic of extensions when she wanted fuller and thicker-looking hair.

She said, “Why do we feel hair extensions are all about Vanity and pretend being au naturel makes us happy. I’m not scared to admit that I like my hair a certain way to feel feminine. It’s just my preference and there’s nothing wrong with that.

“Why do we hide the fact we wear hair extensions or laugh at others who get it wrong? Why feel embarrassed in front of strangers or a new partner when 90% of girls out there all have half a weave stuck to their head. Stop pretending!”, she continued.

She went on to say, “If you want to be a more glamorous you but feel intimidated or inadequate, DON’T. Us women have enough to worry about. Be the best version of yourself unapologetically, trust me I’ve been doing it for years.

“My point is, our Hair is simply an extension (see what I did there) of our beauty. It doesn’t need to feel fake if we’re honest about it."
