Gemma Collins reveals ‘real hair’ as she looks almost unrecognisable with short ‘Marilyn Monroe’ locks

GEMMA Collins has revealed her “real hair” as she looked almost recognisable with her new short “Marilyn Monroe” style locks.

The former The Only Way Is Essex star took to her Instagram stories to document her trip to the hairdressers as she had all of her long blonde extensions taken out.

Gemma, 41, looked glamorous as she showed off her freshly blow-dried natural hair – which fell down level with her chin.

“Guys, so – this is officially all my own hair, I seriously don’t know how long it has taken to grow this,” she told her fans.

Flicking her hair back and forth, showing off the bright blonde colour, Gemma added: “After all the extensions, and now this is all mine.”

The Diva Forever star pouted towards the camera as she revealed her blow-dry style, which fells into soft curls around her face.

Filming herself in front of a picture of Marilyn Monroe, Gemma went on: “Just like my girl Marilyn at the back there, there she is.

“Oh my god, my hair is all my own finally. Months of perseverance.”

Normally, Gemma vamps up her natural hair with long blonde extensions, so her locks flow down over her chest.

She recently showed off her extended locks as she looked slimmer than every in a green halter neck dress.

Gemma also showed off her trim figure over the Halloween weekend – where she sported a black leather catsuit and corset.

She took to the Kiss Haunted House Party at Wembley Arena with her fiancé Rami Hawash in matching black outfits.

Gemma recently revealed on her podcast that she is looking to invest in a second property after “outgrowing” her £1.3m Essex mansion.

The Dancing On Ice star said her home has been taken over by animals after getting a cat called Snowybell and a hamster.

The Essex diva said she is ready to purchase her next pad just one year after splashing out on the glass-fronted, open plan home.

“My house has become an animal sanctuary, Hayden has given me his hamster, so I’ve inherited a hamster, I love my nephew so much, but I need to draw the line,” she said on the Gemma Collins podcast.

“There are animals everywhere, there are people everywhere, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
