Sonia posed in a simple black t-shirt while playing with her fresh shoulder-length ‘do with blonde highlights and curtain bangs.

“New hair,” she wrote alongside the hashtag ‘wolf cut’.


The wolf cut has been labelled the biggest hair trend of 2022, with stars like Billie Eilish, Miley Cyrus, Keke Palmer and Debby Ryan adopting the look.

The wild and choppy style, which has been described as a combination of the shag haircut and a mullet, is said to have originated in Korea and was popularised on social media.

“I think they’re trending because they’re fun and edgy but aren’t as extreme as a mullet, so they’re less scary and grow out really cute,” one New York City-based hairstylist told Marie Claire.

There’s such an '80s and '90s aesthetic revival with fashion and media—like with the new Stranger Things season—so the inspiration is there but in a more modern, cool way.”

A number of Sonia’s followers took to the comments on her post to praise her new look, including Ricki-Lee, Fiona Falkiner and Pettifleur Berenger who simply left fire and heart eye emojis.

“You look fab!” one fan replied, followed by another who added, “Ah wolf cut!! Must have!”

“How is it possible to look any hotter! You look gorgeous. This suits you so much,” a third wrote.

“One classy lady. Always stunning,” a different user remarked, while someone else said they were “obsessed”.

“HOW could you possibly look any younger?! This haircut is gorgeous,” another shared.

Sonia’s fitness secret

Sonia’s new look comes shortly after she opened up about her health and fitness secrets, telling the Healthy-ish podcast that she loves to dance to stay in shape.

“You're working out but you don't realise how much you're working out, I guess, because you're genuinely having a good time,” she said.

“It's just the kind of activity that makes everybody feel happy.”

The Strictly Ballroom star went on to say that in addition to being a form of “strength and resistance” training, dancing also benefits a person’s mental health.

“We know that learning to dance is great for our brain,” she added.

“Learning choreography is great to keep the cogs ticking over. We know that these things help us to ward off dementia and Alzheimer's in the future.”
