Stacey Solomon has likened her dramatic new wedding hair to Eminem and says she looks like how the rapper did when he starred in the hit movie 8 Mile.
The TV star, 32, made the comment after a fan asked her how her “hair transformation” had been going on Instagram, with Stacey admitting a lot of people had been asking the same thing.
Appearing in a blue towel whilst sunbathing, she described her new look as “very bright”, saying the process had been “alright”.
The former X Factor contestant said: “It’s going alright, I’m currently trying to protect it from the sun that’s why I’ve got this weird towel on it, and I’ve put a treatment on it as well to give it a bit of love because it went through a lot yesterday.”
Fans of Stacey have been used to seeing her don a bright red hair colour for some time now but with her wedding scheduled to take place on July 31 she’s decided to change it up and go blonde.
She continued: “But I think this towel is actually doing me the world of good, because when it’s off I look like Eminem from 8 Mile – it’s very bright.”
In a second Instagram story, Stacey explained her decision to go blonde, stating that she wanted to go back to the same colour she had when she was “little”.
“I’m just trying to get it back to my colour that reminds me of me, like, not my childhood colour but what my colour was like when I was little because I don’t know why,” she said.
“I don’t know why but for my wedding I just want to be as me as possible – is that weird?”
Beneath her Instagram story, she wrote: “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 defo not natural.”
Friends and family of Stacey have reportedly been “trying to remind her she’s only one person” as she is “putting pressure on herself” ahead of her wedding to Joe Swash.
A source told OK! that Stacey wants to make sure her stamp is felt throughout the nuptials, and that she has been working all hours to achieve this.
The source says: “Stacey is putting pressure on herself but she is loving putting everything together for this wedding that she can.
“It’s a passion project for her as well as a wedding, but her friends are trying to remind her that she’s only one person and she needs to lean on other people sometimes.
“She wants this wedding to be perfect for her and Joe but is trying to do all of the preparations on top of working and looking after the kids.
“She is very hands on and wants it all to go her way.”
