Sharing her glossy new locks onto Instagram, the 24-year-old dipped her toe into the darker side – explaining she ‘fancied a little change’.

‘Always trying to figure out whether I like blonde or brunette more, can never decide,’ she added.

However, the lovely lady also assured fans that this was a no strings attached situation – as the new look is down to a brunette wig.

Good thing I got a wig huh,’ she added.

Followers were quick to begin a battle of blonde vs. brunette, with many debating which Olivia they prefer.

It’s been an incredible few months for Mr and Mrs Bowen, after tying he knot in front of a star-studded crowd before jetting off for a three week long honeymoon.

However, Olivia recently confessed to Fabulous Online that she’s been suffering a bad case of the post-nuptial blues.

‘The morning after the wedding I woke up and felt empty. I was just so gutted to be faced with the idea that is was all over,’ she explained.

‘I was so upset that I’d never be able to go back and live that day again. I was just so sad.’
