Strictlys Zara McDermott gives hair update after not bleaching her lengths for five months

We can't wait to see Zara McDermott on our screens every weekend when Strictly Come Dancing kicks off next month – we can already imagine her fitting right in with the glamour of the BBC show. We also predict we're about to see some big things from her hair and make-up as soon as she hits the ballroom floor. However, if you think her Strictly prep is well underway, you'd be wrong.

The former Love Islander has just updated her Instagram followers that she's not had her bronde hair coloured in five months – but that amazingly her colour still looks almost perfect.

"What I love about Alexe…I haven't had my hair coloured in over 5 months and it looks like this. Wizard!" she writes, sharing a recent image of her perfectly toned balayage.

We've looked through our beauty archives and it's true, the last time Zara had her hair done was in March when she underwent a colour refresh to give her hair a beachy, sunkissed look.

The star had previously been rocking a grown-out shadow root with an ashy blonde colour streaked through to the ends, but she then opted for a perfect golden glow with honey blonde tones throughout and some money piece front sections.

It's worth noting that if you're keen to go blonde but don't want the upkeep of highlights, this picture Zara has shared is the perfect inspo for you and your colourist. You'll only need to upkeep the money piece sections every few months instead of the bulk of your hair.

During the same Instagram Story segment, Zara takes the time to answer follower questions – and plenty relate to her hair and skincare.

"Do you regret getting curtain bangs? I want to get them too but I'm scared," one fan ponders.

Zara replies: "Will be very honest. They are easy to style if you know how and have time in the mornings. It only takes 10 mins or so, but my hair is extremely straight naturally so even when I style them, they end up just hanging on my face within an hour."

She adds: "They just haven't worked overly well for me and I'm growing them out now."

The 26 year old also gives another follower some intel on her skincare favourites after they wrote in the questions box that her skin always looks fabulous.

"Thank you so much. I do try and really look after it to be honest. I also drink 2.5-3L water a day at the moment," she says.

Zara also notes that the Medik8 C-Tetra Luxe Lipid Vitamin C Enhanced Radiance Serum, £50.15 here, L'Oreal Paris' Revitalift Filler Hyaluronic Acid Serum, £16.66 here, and Eltra MD's Tinted SPF, £18 here, help to give her skin a glow.

Thanks for the info, Zara!
