Actress Rebecca Gibney teases a VERY drastic hair transformation as she drops her signature blonde locks in favor of a sultry brunette
Packed to the Rafters star Rebecca Gibney has teased a dramatic hair transformation with her thousands of Instagram followers.
On Wednesday, the 56-year-old shared a photo of herself rocking her usual blonde waves, before quickly sharing another of her dark chocolate brown-dyed locks.
“Workshop on a new character look,” she captioned the first image, staring blankly at the camera wearing a bold red lipstick.
What a difference! On Wednesday, Rebecca Gibney shared a photo of herself rocking her usual blonde locks, before dying a second of her hair a dark chocolate brown.
“Or maybe she’s brunette,” the New Zealand-born star wrote on the next, showing her with the same red lip color but with her hair a gorgeous shade of brown.
While she may have just used a cleverly placed filter to change the color of her locks, the new look certainly matched the actress’s complexion perfectly.
It’s unclear where Rebecca, who lives in Dunedin, New Zealand, is currently as she didn’t wrap up the MasterChef Australia filming until July 10.
In June, Rebecca revealed that the reason she decided to sign up for the show was because her 17-year-old son Zac begged her to do it.

She told The Daily Telegraph: “[Zac] said ‘Mom you could make your popping spagbol and you do a really good roast chook’ – I go ‘Mate it’s MasterChef kitchen you don’t do spagbol!”
Zac quickly came up with the ultimate technique for getting her to sign up — he said he’d think it’s cool doing this because it’s the “only reality show I watch.”
After telling his mother that MasterChef “had faith,” Rebecca continued, “So all of a sudden I have confidence because I’m doing MasterChef – forget Halifax, forget Packed to the Rafters, and forget Wanted.”

Rebecca doesn’t seem to think her minimal talents in the kitchen will make it far, adding, “It’s so stressful that I’ve already lay on the floor crying and only cooked twice.”
Channel 10 released the full cast list last month, with contestants including Gordon Ramsay’s daughter Tilly, Offspring actor Matthew Le Nevez and fashion designer Collette Dinnigan.
They appear alongside Olympic hero Ian Thorpe, former AFL star Nick Riewoldt, singer Dami Im and comedian Dilruk Jayasinha.
Radio personality Chrissie Swan and retired football player Archie Thompson will also join the program.
