A change is as good as a holiday and Married At First Sight star Alana Lister proved just that when she debuted a stunning new look over the weekend.

The 31-year-old unveiled a fresh platinum blonde hairdo on her Instagram account, prompting some of her fans to do a 'double-take' over her transformation.

'A bit of fun'

The former TV bride's sleek long bob just brushed her collar bone and marked a departure from her previously wavy, honey blonde locks.

While Alana's followers clearly loved the lighter 'do, calling her a "Queen" and "Breathtaking" in the comments, don't expect it to stick around. As she revealed in the image caption, the frosty tresses were simply a wig.

"This was a super cool party and I loved dressing up," Alana wrote.

"We all need a bit of fun in our lives. Thanks for the invite @lacefrontsaustralia," she added.

Alana certainly appeared to be having a lot of fun at the event, where she tried out several more colourful wigs including another long bob in mint green and cascading ombré strands of pink, purple and blue.

She captioned a photo of the latter look, "Fembot vibes," which earned her comparisons to another famous wig-wearer, singer Nicki Minaj.

"Definitely had to do a double-take as thought you looked just like Nicki Minaj," one fan wrote in the comments. "Either way you are smoking hot girlfriend," they added.

This isn't the first time Alana's transformation has turned heads. A few weeks before dabbling in wigs the school teacher shared draw-dropping throwback snaps of her before undergoing breast augmentation surgery.

And later, during an exclusive chat with Yahoo Lifestyle, Alana revealed she's thought about the idea of being The Bachelorette. So watch this space.
