For the past 18 years, Sharon Osbourne has been a redhead, until Monday.
To keep up with the vibrant colour of red the TV personality had, she was dying her hair around once a week so she decided to go white.
“Sharon has 100 per cent white hair and she was colouring 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,” hair colourist Jack Martin shared on Instagram alongside a before and after pic of Osbourne.

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.

He added, “Sharon was very tired of colouring her hair once a week and she was obligated to since she is on tv almost every day hosting her popular tv show @thetalkcbs.”
Martin didn’t want to make Osbourne any promises that her hair would turn out as it is hard to strip such a harsh colour but it turned out great.
“I had great time spending my day off with this gorgeous, humble, and sweet soul,” he concluded.
Osbourne addressed the major change during Tuesday’s episode of Global’s “The Talk”, revealing, “I was just so fed up of going, having it dyed and having it dyed, and I can’t do this anymore. I’m like why am I trying to do this or be something that I’m not? So, just be who you are.”
She later added, “Jane Fonda, Helen Mirren – and I’m like look how elegant they look and I’m like, okay, I don’t say I’m going to stop the surgery, just change my hair.”
