“The Talk’s” co-host Sharon Osbourne decided to make a big change to her look this year. In February 2020, the television personality changed her iconic hair color and explained why.

Osbourne changed her hair color from the usual red that we’ve come to know her with; to platinum. Colorist Jack Martin was the one who took to Instagram to debut the look.

Some people thought the new look was welcome while others weren’t so sure. Irrespective of people’s opinions, Osbourne chose to keep it.

“I was in my twenties when I first saw a gray hair. I actually thought it was somebody else's hair in my head.”

DYEING HER HAIR RED

She recalled trying to pull the offensive hair out, thinking it wasn’t hers, but realized it was actually “stuck in my head.” Then more gray hairs started coming in and that’s when the star started coloring it.

I've got nothing to prove

Talking about her new iconic red look, Osbourne shared: “I have naturally auburn-colored hair, and it just got redder and redder as the years went by.” However, the look was hard to maintain and she had to color her hair every week.

KEEPING UP APPEARANCES

The hair color would end up bleeding out onto her clothing collars and pillowcases. Whenever she washed and dried her hair; it always ended up “a different shade of red.”

The talk show host even went as far as coloring her own hair while on vacation for more than a week. However, she did have moments where she would question why she was working so hard to keep the hair color.

RESENTING HER HAIR COLOR

The truth was that she’d allowed it to define her because “It was like, this is who I am.” The constant dyeing ended up affecting the condition of her hair and she had to figure out a different option.

She started “resenting” her attachment to the color, but also struggled with the possibility of not being able to get the red color out. Martin was her savior and after working for eight hours, he was able to give her the new platinum blonde color.
