Sharon Osbourne has debuted an extreme hair transformation, switching from her signature bright red hair to a platinum shade.

The television personality’s hair change came courtesy of celebrity hair colourist Jack Martin, who recently spent seven hours colouring Jane Fonda’s hair from blonde to icy silver for the Oscars.

Martin shared before and after pictures of Osbourne on Instagram, describing his appointment with the former X-Factor judge as “another great day in my career” and she as “the most beautiful and elegant talk show host and entertainer”.

The earlier photograph was taken in January at the Grammy Awards, where the former X-Factor judge presented an award alongside her husband, Ozzy Osbourne.

“Sharon has 100 per cent white hair and she was colouring her hair once a week dark vibrant red for the past 18 years,” Martin explained in the caption.

“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.”

Martin stated that Osbourne was “very tired” of having to colour her hair on a weekly basis, something she felt “obligated” to do due to her daily appearances on CBS’ The Talk.

“I didn’t promise Sharon anything but I told her I will try my best, it took me a total of eight hours from start to finish to get her to a platinum blonde so she doesn’t have to be committed to colouring her hair once a week anymore,” he said.

The hair colourist added that he had a “great time” spending time with “this gorgeous, humble, and sweet soul”.

Several Instagram users praised Martin on his results with Osbourne.

“You are so good in what you do!! Your work is magic!!” one person wrote.

“She literally looks like royalty with white hair,” another remarked.

During this year’s Academy Awards, Fonda showcased Martin’s work when she appeared on stage to present the Best Picture accolade to Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite.

The hair colourist explained on Instagram that it took a significant amount of time to transform Fonda’s hair, during which she kept herself busy writing chapters of her upcoming book, memorising lines for her Netflix show Grace and Frankie, responding to emails and staying up to date with the news.

“Her goal colour was a silver icy blonde to surprise everyone at the 2020 Oscar presenting the final award winner for the movie of the year,” he stated.

“Jane was extremely happy for getting her dream hair that took her a while to find a colourist that can do it perfectly in a very painless process.”
