Love Island's Amber Davies shows off 'new look' after swapping her brunette locks for blonde waves

Blondes do have more fun!

After winning Love Island 2017 with then-boyfriend Kym Cetinay, Amber Davies has clearly decided that blondes have more fun.

Back in the summer of 2017, brunette Amber was a relatively unknown TV hopeful looking for love on the ITV dating show.

Fast-forward 24 months and the single star is now a smash hit on the stage, starring alongside Louise Redknapp in 9 To 5: The Musical.

She's also been gradually changing her long, flowing brunette locks and is now sporting gorgeous blonde beach waves.
