home made Yvonne Connolly shows off her new blonde look as she joins the DIY hairdresser ranks


Presenter and ex-model Yvonne Connolly has become the latest celeb to move into DIY hairdressing.

With the recent announcement from the Government that hairdressers will not be reopening any time soon, many of us have been turning to homemade beauty solutions.

Tánaiste Leo Varadkar has said that services like hairdressers and beauticians won’t return until “much later” than March 5th.

Most of us haven’t had a hair or beauty appointment since before Christmas so it comes as no surprise that more people are turning to the dreaded box dye with each passing day.

Television presenter and cook Yvonne Connolly has become the next person to try her hand at dying her own hair.

She revealed her new do earlier today on Instagram, stating that she used Clairol’s Nice’n Easy semi-permanent hair dye in the shade Light Ash Brown 75.

The ex-wife of Boyzone star Ronan Keating shared: “First time I put a colour on my own hair! Didn’t turn out too bad. I have a filter on of course.”

She also jokingly apologised to her hairdresser for her DIY hairdo: “My hairdresser is going to kill me. Sorry @zaraharte – couldn’t wait any longer.”

Yvonne gave followers a glimpse into her Valentine’s Day plans with partner and cinematographer John Conroy in another Instagram post.

“Champagne, rugby and treats with my Valentine,” wrote the broadcaster.

The pair have been together since 2012 and are taking it easy in their Kildare home after Yvonne revealed in November that she had been recovering from a devastating horse-riding accident for several months.

“I’m hoping to get back to work in a couple of months and usually I’m the kind of person who wants to get back on top of everything very quickly, but this time around I promised I’d be good to myself.”
