Rebel Wilson gets a fresh blow-dry in Sydney after 18kg weight loss

She’s been hitting the gym hard after vowing to make 2020 her ‘year of health’.

And on Thursday, Rebel Wilson showed off her recent weight loss while visiting a salon in Sydney.

The actress and comedian, 40, rewarded herself with a bouncy blow-dry, after her 18kg slim-down drew comparisons to British singer Adele.

Rebel kept things casual in a pair of figure-hugging black tights and a Disney jumper.

She entered the salon with minimal makeup and with her hair pulled up in a tight, messy topknot.

Rebel later left her pampering session transformed, after the glamorous blow-dry added life to her hair.

She also dolled herself up with full coverage foundation, a smokey eye and soft pink lipstick.

Dietitian and exercise physiologist Kate Save told Daily Mail Australia earlier this week that she believes Rebel has lost up to 18kg (40lbs or 2.8 stone).

Save, who is the director of Peninsula Physical Health and Nutrition and CEO of Be Fit Food, arrived at the estimation by studying before-and-after photos of the star.

‘My team aligned at 16 to 18kg given that her height is quite short [5ft 2in],’ she said.

Rebel, who hopes to slim down to 75kg, updated fans on her health and fitness journey during an interview on Sunrise on Monday.

‘There’s been a lot of working out, which was hard with the coronavirus restrictions,’ she said.

Rebel added that she was happy gyms were finally reopening in Australia because she was ready to step up her training and ‘pump iron’.

‘I had to go out to the park and lie on the dirt doing my sit-ups,’ she laughed. ‘It’s a bit brutal, and it’s getting cold in the mornings.’

Last month, the Hollywood star vowed to slim down to 75kg (165lbs or 11.8 stone).

‘Even if you have to crawl towards your goals, keep going – it would be worth it,’ Rebel wrote on Instagram.

‘Try and give a little bit of effort each day. I know some days are frustrating as hell, you feel like giving up, you get annoyed at the lack of progress [but] good things are coming your way.’

Rebel’s personal trainer, Jono Castano Acero, recently shared the star’s workout routine with E! Australia.

During a typical week, she does a combination of HIIT workouts, mobility, weights and resistance, and has just one day per week of rest.

‘Rebel and I are just focusing on enjoying training and getting the body moving,’ he said, adding that she was ‘pleasure’ to work with because of her sense of humour.
