Emma Raducanu MBE, former ELLE UK cover star and British professional tennis champion, reached a career-high this year, ranking of No. 10 by the Women's Tennis Association in July and of course, won the 2021 US Open women's singles title.

When displaying her incredible natural sporting abilities, it's important for Emma to wear her hair back in something like one of her signature ponytail plaits. After all, tennis is most definitely a workout... but who are we to know. *Continues to sit, watch at home and commentate every game*.

But one thing that hasn't changed so far is her hair colour – well, until now. We won't lie, the following post resulted in an audible shock when we came across a selfie of Emma's completely new hair look.

John Clark, hair colourist at the John Frieda salon in London, posted a series of pictures on his Instagram:

Just by taking a look at the first picture, it is clear that Emma's hair is a few shades lighter than her previously dark brown colour. In the caption, John shared the details behind the transformation, writing: 'I used the @johnfriedasalons #glowlights technique to lift her naturally very dark base to a multi tonal brunette with lighter areas around the face and where the sunshine would naturally make it shimmer. [sic]'

For those unaware, 'glowlights' is a new alternative to balayage highlights and is a term coined by John Frieda hair colourist, Nicola Clarke. She first used the technique on Kate Moss when giving her hair a natural makeover for summer.

So, if you, too, are after a subtle yet summery glow, why not ask your hair colourist for glowlights when next in the salon chair. I'm tempted to book myself in RN...
