One thing that has always stood out for Sharon Osbourne is her iconic, flame-red hair.
In a move that has surprised many, she has now ditched her famous red locks and had them bleached to be 100% white–and you have to admit that she looks absolutely stunning.
Jack Martin, Sharon Osbourne’s hairstylist, explained why Sharon decided to finally get rid of her red hair in a recent post on Instagram:
“Another great day in my career welcoming the most beautiful and elegant talk show host and entertainer @sharonosbourne for a complete transformation. Sharon has 100% white hair and she was coloring her hair once a week dark vibrant red for the past 18 years.
She explained to me that she wanted to do this transformation a long time ago, but every time she attempts to, it ends up with a disaster. Sharon was very tired of coloring her hair once a week and she was obligated to since she is on tv almost every day hosting her popular tv show @thetalkcbs.
I didn’t promise Sharon anything but I told her I will try my best. It took me a total of 8 hours from start to finish to get her to a platinum blonde so she doesn’t have to be committed to coloring her hair once a week anymore.”
And boy, did Martin pull off the platinum blonde look for Sharon Osbourne! Forget commercials for the top 5 best whitening toothpastes: Sharon’s transformation is going to get the top hair whitening pastes trending instead.

After creating an entirely new, and decidedly still iconic look for Sharon, Martin said, “I had a great time spending my day off with this gorgeous, humble and sweet soul.”
Sharon isn’t the only celebrity that Martin has recently transformed. He also recently helped Jane Fonda trade her own tresses in for a fresh, new look.
In other Osbourne-related news, Ozzy Osbourne has now canceled his 2020 North American tour dates, touting health issues. Osbourne said, “I’m so thankful that everyone has been patient because I’ve had a sh*t year. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to get to Switzerland for treatment until April and the treatment takes six-eight weeks.”
“I don’t want to start a tour and then cancel shows at the last minute, as it’s just not fair to the fans,” he said. “I’d rather they get a refund now and when I do the North American tour down the road, everyone who bought a ticket for those shows will be the first ones in line to purchase tickets at that time.”
