Despite embracing her naturally grey hair, Dawn previously revealed she was planning to grow out her shortened hair to recreate her trademark bob.

Of what motivated her to go au natural, she told Good Housekeeping Magazine: ‘The real trigger came during the lockdowns when I was dying my hair myself, and I just couldn’t be bothered to keep doing it, so I let my natural grey come through. 

Admitting to cutting her own hair – much to her hairdresser’s alarm – Dawn continued: ‘It’s much shorter than I’m used to now and I do have certain “grr” moments when I’m going out and I don’t know how to style it – I would literally give my old hair 13 minutes of my time each day.

‘But the plan is to grow it again like my old hairstyle. I’m curious to see what the bob might look like with a good strong grey.’
