EastEnders actress Shona McGarty wowed with her red hair makeover earlier this year, surprising fans of the BBC soap when her character Whitney Dean appeared on screen with the bright new hue.

But before she sported this fiery shade, which was worn in a sleek style on the red carpet of the OK!-sponsored NTAs, Shona could be seen with dark, curly hair in an old picture posted to her Instagram feed in April 2020 – and it’s dramatically different to her current beauty look.

Seeming to hint that she had just got a perm at the time, she captioned the beaming selfie, “So this just happened” with a laughing emoji.

Naturally fans were loving the then-new look on the star.

"I love your hair," said one, while another wrote, "it suits ya" alongside the heart-eyes emoji.

Meanwhile a third fan commented, "You know what Shona… you look stunning. Love it hun,” as a fourth said of the look, “very 80s Madonna”.

The actress has played Whitney Dean in EastEnders since 2008, and one of her biggest storylines saw her groomed as a teen by her stepmum’s boyfriend Tony King.

More recently she was also tried for murder after killing her stalker, Tony’s son Leo, in self defence – but was ultimately released thanks to lawyer Gray Atkins.

However, in an exclusive chat with OK! Shona hinted that Whitney could be in danger in upcoming episodes, as Gray's downfall looms – in the last year he's murdered wife Chantelle as well as Tina Carter and Kush Kazemi, after they discovered his dark secret.

Shona isn’t the only soap actress to treat herself to a hair makeover recently.

Hollyoaks’ Sarah Jayne Dunn, who plays Mandy Richardson on the show, treated herself to a brand new long bob cut ahead of her 40th birthday this year.

Having previously showcased long layered hair that fell past her shoulders, the star now sports a long bob with fresh curtain bangs – getting in on one of the biggest hair trends of the moment.

“Birthday celebrations begin this evening (two weeks early) starting with a new do," she captioned the Instagram post showing off her new ‘do.

Only time will tell which soap star will overhaul their beauty look next!
