The Loose Women star admitted, "I change my hair all the time," but she has spent several days slowly changing the colour back to her blonde "childhood" hue. Walking fans through the process on her Instagram Stories, she admitted it was "very bright", which we imagine is the result of the bleach on her previously red hair.

On Monday, she sported slicked-back hair and wrote: "I'm starting [my] hair process ahead of the wedding, it's going to be a long process so we wanted to start early to make sure it all goes ok!" 

The following day, Stacey had wrapped her hair in a blue towel which hid the results of her hair dye. "I'm just trying to get it to my most me colour as possible. I don't know why but as soon as I imagined getting married I wanted to look like the most me I could look.

"I change my hair all the time which I LOVE but for this day in my life I just wanted it to be as soft and natural as possible even though it's deffo not natural," she explained, adding that she had put a treatment on it to prevent any damage. 

Laughing about the long process, she said in the clip: "I think this towel is doing me the world of good because when it's off I look like Eminem from 8 Mile - it's very bright!"

The bride-to-be wants a more natural hair colour

While Stacey hasn't shared many photos from her childhood, she has sported bright blonde locks and a pale brunette colour with caramel highlights in the past, which is not too dissimilar from the natural hair growth she revealed when she was unable to visit the hairdresser during the coronavirus lockdown.

For her most recent beauty makeover, Stacey's hairdresser bleached her red hair, which she showed off back in 2021 after using an at-home hair dye kit, before applying the L'Oreal Paris Préférence Hair Colour in shade 9.12 Blonde - which costs just £9.99! She added she used the balayage kit to "add a little depth to my roots" and revealed the finished result on Friday.

This comes after she showed off a dark blonde streak in her hair during her hen party in Mykonos, Greece. Answering fans' questions about her wild locks, Stacey joked: "By the way, the blonde stripe in the back – I'm not a skunk – I test patched my hair for the wedding," she said, hinting that she may return to her trademark lighter hue for her special day.

Stacey and Joe first got together in 2015, and the couple got engaged on Christmas Eve in 2020. They had planned to tie the knot in July 2021 but delayed their nuptials when Stacey became pregnant with their youngest child, Rose.
