What does Holly Willoughby look like with a fringe?

Holly’s famous fringe first made an appearance in 2004.

It was also the year that Holly decided to dye her hair blonde as she sported a sandy blonde look with a darker shade underneath.

Her fringe reappeared in 2015 when Holly impulsively decided to get her hair cut on live TV by Kate Middleton’s hairdresser.

Her huge hair ‘disaster’

During an Instagram live Holly admitted that she accidentally dyed her hair red and it was a “disaster”.

She said: “I went red by accident when I was much much younger and you want to experiment with your hair.

“I’d gone blonde by using one of those beach spray blondes. So I came home and was like: ‘Oh I’d better just put this dark hair dye over the top,’ and obviously I’m not a colourist but that was a disaster.”
