Nathan Buckley’s new girlfriend Alex Pike shows off her hairstyle after visiting a hairdresser

Victoria’s imposed lockdown was finally lifted on Thursday night.

And Nathan Buckley’s glamorous girlfriend Alex Pike was no doubt thrilled to be back in the hair salon on Saturday, as the city slowly reopened.

The mother of three, 44, showed off her incredibly toned physique in a crop top and tights as she visited a hairdresser for the first time post-lockdown.

Alex teamed her casual ensemble with a black puffer jacket and also wore a pair of comfortable sneakers.

The cosmetic nurse showed off her fresh wavy locks as she walked to her car after visiting the hairdresser.

Alex let her natural beauty shine, by opting for a neutral palette of makeup for the outing.

It comes after Alex broke her silence after Nathan, 48,  stepped down as coach for Collingwood halfway through his 10th AFL season.

In an Instagram post last week, Alex shared an inspirational quote about ‘letting go’ – seemingly a reference to Nathan’s decision to quit his role with the Magpies.

‘As we let go of adventures no longer meant for us, we brought new ones aligned with our magic,’ the quote read.

While Alex did not mention her boyfriend, the quote seems particularly fitting given his recent circumstances.

Alex and Nathan, who have known each other since at least the start of the year, were pictured together for the first time last month.

The romance between the new couple is said to be ‘effortless’.

‘They are happy. It’s all good. It’s just very easy and comfortable really. They have a genuine connection,’ a friend of the couple told the Herald Sun.

The source added that Alex isn’t after fame, and isn’t ‘daunted’ by the attention that comes with being a WAG either.

‘They are just into normal stuff, yoga, natural health, keeping fit and staying positive,’ they said.

Alex is a mother of three based in South Yarra, just outside Melbourne’s CBD, but also has a home in Albury.

The pair’s relationship emerged just weeks after the champion midfielder announced his split from his wife of 18 years, Tania Minnici, last December.
