Comedian and actress Dawn French, known for her signature glossy tresses as much as her comedy shows, is embracing her grey hair. The 63-year-old TV star even got her hairdresser to give her an undercut in order to showcase her lighter locks.

“Going lighter to welcome the grey,” she wrote online alongside two photos of herself.

“…with an undercut surprise of real me… Hello there!” she added in view of her 517,800 followers.

One picture showed the Vicar of Dibley star sporting her brunette hair in it’s trademark style – a shoulder-length bob with a fringe.

In the additional image, Dawn lifts up her tresses to show off the hair underneath, which had been cut short to reveal the grey.

Many took to the comments section of her post to share their thoughts on her new look.

“Gorgeous,” said ITV presenter Lorraine Kelly.

“Oooooh I’m SO TEMPTED by a undercut – they say ‘business’ in a way I find compelling,” added author Caitlin Moran.

“You look fabulous,” another follower remarked.

Others were a bit divided on the issue of embracing their natural hair colour.

“Good for you. A bold decision. I am nowhere near ready to embrace the grey! I’m far too young at 54. Box dye all the way for me,” one person said.

“I will never go grey while I still have money to spend on a box of hair dye. I cannot do much about lines around my eyes, but I can about my hair. I will not be giving in to the grey. (Personal decision and not meant to upset anyone who has embraced it!)” a second person said.

“Everyone looks better with their natural colour rather than an unconvincing dye. The natural colour suits one’s skin tone as if by magic,” a third user added.

Earlier this month, Dawn called out a fake diet advert for using her pictures without permission.

The actress, who has spoken openly about her dramatic weight loss over the years, branded it “b*****ks”.

“Keto lies,” she told her followers while sharing a screenshot of the ad, which carried a quote which was supposedly from Dawn.

“All I can say is that it works!” it claimed she had said.

Dawn lost just over seven stone in weight on the advice of her doctor ahead of an operation.

The mum-of-one was told that she would be able to have keyhole surgery and recover more quickly following a hysterectomy if she lost a few pounds.

She has since said that her weight loss was down to “joyless low-cal eating and lots more walking for weeks and weeks”.

The TV star made her comments during her 30 Million Minutes tour.
