Jessika Power unrecognisable after major transformation: 'Suits you'

The MAFS star has entered 2023 with a brand new look.

Married At First Sight star Jessika Power has entered 2023 looking barely recognisable from her former self.

The popular reality TV personality, who is well known for her blonde locks after appearing on season six of MAFS and Big Brother VIP, attended a New Year’s Eve dress-up party in the UK with her partner Connor Thompson while wearing a dark red wig with bangs.

She paired the new hairstyle with purple eyeshadow and pink lipstick and wore a colourful retro ski suit with a metallic pink bum bag.

Meanwhile, her boyfriend wore a long-sleeve black shirt under a silver sequinned vest and a matching hat with a bow tie and thick-rimmed yellow sunglasses.

In a gallery of snaps posted on Instagram, the couple stood next to an inflatable disco ball under a string of white lights and shared a kiss.

“Happy New Year,” she wrote in the caption. “Our second new year together @_connorthompson I hope we have many many more.”


A number of Jessika’s followers took the comments to applaud her new look, with many suggesting that she should dye her hair a similar colour.

“Omg dark hair suits you a lot! So pretty!” one person wrote, followed by another who added, “Oh Jess dark hair is the one”.

“Love the brown hair Jessica it looks fabulous on you,” a third replied, while a different user said, “Dark hair looks so good on you”.

“You guys are seriously the cutest! It’s so nice to see that you’ve found your person Jess!” someone else commented. “Happy New Year guys!!! PS I’m digging the wig.”

'So happy'

Jessika and Connor began dating in 2021 after she appeared on his Erasing the Bar podcast a number of times. She then moved to the UK and starred on the reality show Celebs Go Dating before moving in with Connor in Manchester.

Last week she shared a heartfelt post on Instagram reflecting on the massive changes in her life and opened up about how happy she is.


“I still find it crazy I’m living in the UK with a man I met over a podcast and now we have a dog, a home and I’ve added a whole new amount of people (from him) to my family,” she wrote.

“So blessed, so happy, so relaxed and grateful. I want this for everyone! I have had the toughest life and I never imagined myself being this happy and blessed.

“No matter f*kn what, always keep believing in yourself. If I can do it then so can you… ALWAYS BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.”
