Recently, Sharon Osbourne debuted a very different look! She changed up her red hair color for platinum. This was the first time she has changed her hair color in about 18 years, so naturally, fans were pretty shocked. Sharon opened up about the change on The Talk.
In February, her colorist Jack Martin shared some photos of her new hair color. Sharon admitted that she was shocked when she found gray hairs in her twenties. As she aged and more grays grew, she decided to dye her hair red. She said her hair is naturally auburn color anyways.

Even though 2020 didn’t start in a good way in the world with Covid-19 but for me personally 2020 it was a big change in my career by having the pleasure transforming one of most iconic Hollywood celebrity the beautiful Sharon Osbourne’hair back to her natural grey icy blonde. This transformation took a total of 8 hours, from level 5 dark plum red to icy silver blonde, hair felt so healthy thanks to the amazing hair insurance @olaplex .
However, it wasn’t always easy to keep the vibrant red color going. Sharon got her hair colored every week and then she said, “Then it’d just bleed. On my collars. On my pillowcases. Everywhere. And when you’d wash and dry it, it’d be a different shade of red.” She got sick of coloring it so much, but the red hair became part of her identity.

Another great day in my career welcoming the most beautiful and elegant talk show host and entertainer @sharonosbourne for a complete transformation. Sharon has 100% white hair and she was coloring her hair once a week dark vibrant red for the past 18 years. she explained to me that she wanted to do this transformation long time ago but every time she attempts it ends up with a disaster. Sharon was very tired of coloring her hair once a week and she was obligated to since she is on tv almost every day hosting her popular tv show @thetalkcbs . I didn’t promise Sharen anything but I told her I will try my best, it took me a total of 8 hours from start to finish to get her to a platinum blonde so she doesn’t have to be committed to coloring her hair once a week anymore. I had great time spending my day off with this gorgeous, humble, and sweet soul. ____________________________________________ Products used in this transformation.

Of course, after so many years, she wanted a change. Red is notoriously hard to get out of your hair when you want to switch it up. It took her colorist eight hours to transform her hair from red to platinum! She said she loves the look and how easy it is to maintain. Although, Sharon admits she didn’t recognize herself at first!
She added, “I love the freedom it has given me. I’ve got nothing to prove. It’s not like I’m trying to look younger. I’m just trying to look my best.”
