Home and Away's Samara Weaving shocks with transformation: 'Wow'

Former Home and Away star Samara Weaving has stepped out with a brand new look. The actress, 30, has swapped her trademark blonde locks for an unusual style.

After hitting the salon in Sydney, the Ready or Not star looked stunning with a layered blonde cut and brunette bangs framing her face. Some fans said she was ‘unrecognisable’, and the darker fringe helps her blue eyes stand out.

Samara shared a number of snaps and videos of her new hair on Instagram, with her latest caption simply saying: “More hair content”.

Her celebrity pals went wild over the stunning new look, with model Lara Worthington and Home and Away star Georgie Parker liking the post.


“Give us moooore! Also ily THICK,” wrote fellow Home and Away alumni Ash Brewer.

“So pretty,” added The Babysitter star Bella Thorne, while H2O’s Phoebe Tonkin said she ‘loved’ Samara’s new hair.

Since leaving Home and Away in 2013, she has carved a name for herself in Hollywood. She was recently seen alongside Nicole Kidman in Nine Perfect Strangers and her highly anticipated film Babylon is due to come out in early 2023.

The star has also been revealed as part of the Scream 6 cast, alongside Courteney Cox and Hayden Panettiere. Due to her success in previous slasher roles in Ready or Not and The Babysitter, she is slowly becoming known as a scream queen.
