The reality star shared a photo on Thursday from a recent night out, where she debuted her completely new look. While enjoying her meal in St Kilda, the star showed off her light chocolate brown hair, styled in a messy updo.
This is a huge change for Sam who is known for sporting a blonde balayage look, and is regularly seen getting a ‘refresh’ from her hairdresser and friend Ella.
Sam didn’t share who she was out to dinner with, but it could have been her new boyfriend, Survivor contestant Jordie Hansen. The pair have been busy travelling together and constantly trade sweet messages back and forth on social media.
Since the actress is no longer playing Jasmine Delaney on the soap, she may have finally felt free to change her look without any repercussions.
While Sam looks loved-up and content with her life, she previously warned fans that when she dyes her hair brown it could mean she’s not in a good place.
“When you go through a breakup; usually you change your hair, you do something drastic. You just want to reinvent yourself,” the star explained on her now axed 2Day FM show.
“Any time I’ve got brown hair you know, ‘Oh geez, she’s not coping’,” she laughed.
The most extreme shade Sam has sported so far was a really dark brown, after she had been dumped in public on national television by Bachelor Blake Garvey.
“I just realised the embarrassing thing is the public have seen me go through a breakup. So I went through that weird brown hair stage, I’ve chopped it off, then I was caramel, then I went really dark,” she explained.
The reality star isn’t the only Home and Away star to go through a dramatic transformation this week, as Sam Barrett has chopped her hair into a short bob.
The actress who plays Chloe Anderson on the soap posted a picture of herself on Instagram, captioning it: “Did a thing. Eeeeeeep. Joy”.
Acknowledging their hair transformations, Sam Frost congratulated the actress by writing, “YES. YES. YES.” followed by a heart emoji on Barrett's post.
