Dawn French shows off ‘grey hair explosion’ and gives fans an update on growing-out process

Dawn French has been attempting to fully grow out her grey hairs since mid-2021, and it seems she’s beginning to get a bit frustrated with the slow progress of her hair growth, after braving the chop late last year in order to allow her previous dark colour to fully grow out.

Taking to Instagram to share a pretty braided hair look, the former Vicar of Dibley actress comments on the “explosion” of grey hairs that are visible in the style.

“Today I am mostly twisting the heck out of this grey explosion while I wait for it to grow. COME ON!!!” she writes.

“It’s absolutely gorgeous,” comments back Strictly finalist John Whaite, while Kate Thornton says: “Tres chic!”

Another fan writes: “Love your hair short and natural colour, shows off your lovely complexion.”

“Are you growing it into a bob again?” asks another follower.

Dawn has already mentioned her intention is to grow back her trademark blunt bob cut, but this time without the glossy black colour that was once her signature.

“Cutting off all the old colour…gradually getting there with the grey… starting short… aiming at the ol bob in full grey glory…. It’s a process… I’m not great at patience,” she wrote back in September 2021.

Dawn is also clearly giving a few new hairstyles a go to see if she can manage this in-between length. In her new Instagram selfie she’s pictured with pretty braid-like twists, which we think give a serious nod to the 90s when butterfly clips and hairline twists were on-trend.

Back in October when Dawn’s hair was at its shortest, she hilariously took to Twitter to compare her look to some other iconic TV personalities.

“In my head, it’s v Jamie Lee Curtis. Husband says it’s actually v Anne Hegerty. Don’t care…. Both are ruddy KWEEEENS,” Dawn tweeted.

Since both mega-star Jamie Lee Curtis and daytime TV star Anne Hegerty are synonymous with grey pixie cuts, we’d say Dawn was quite accurate in her comparison.

We hope the comedian keeps updating us on her hair progress because we’re loving all of the styles she’s creating.
