Sometimes it's the little changes that can make a huge difference – which is something Coronation Street star Jane Danson appears to know all too well. The actress debuted a fresh new 'do on Instagram on Tuesday, showing off a shorter, blonder mane to her followers. Lifting her complexion, Jane had some white blonde highlights added to the front of her hair which beautifully frames her face. Captioning the snap, she said: "Thanks @rogerlm @regisuk for my fresh new blonde (love) it x."

The 40-year-old wasn't the only one in love with her new colour, her fans were highly impressed too. Taking to the comments underneath the photo, one gushed: "Nothing like getting your hair done and feeling like a new woman. It's beautiful Jane and really suits you and your smile." Another added: "Love your hair and colour looks lovely xx," and a third said: "Great image and new look on you."
