Tammy Hembrow has thrilled her social media followers by sharing some unseen snaps of herself from her younger years, before she found fame and fortune as a fashion and fitness business owner.

She might only be 26-years-old now, but the Aussie influencer is barely recognisable in the throwback pics of her as a teenager, taken prior to ‘getting into fitness’.

In one pic she shared to her Instagram Stories during a fan Q&A on Tuesday, the mum-of-two is seen wearing a black boob tube top and matching black leggings while posing for a mirror selfie in her ‘old’ bathroom.

Tammy’s makeup is more subtle than what she tends to favour these days, and her hair is a warmer, natural blonde.

In another teen snap, Tammy sports a completely different hair colour — a rich, glossy brown — which she admits was an at-home effort.

“Dyed my hair myself lmao,” she captioned the image.

A third photo from her past shows Tammy looking fresh-faced with some friends at an outdoor event.

Unlike her rather risqué wardrobe of today, teen Tammy has opted for a cute floral top that shows off a bit of midriff and again, her hair and makeup is comparatively low-key.

“Nutha one lol I was so young here,” the Instagram mogul wrote.

The Gold Coast local went on to achieve a lot in the intervening decade or so, racking up almost 12 million Instagram followers, launching an athleisure brand Saski Collective along with TammyFit, a home workout and meal plan program, and cementing herself as a bona fide international celebrity.

And back in December, she scooped the Gold Coast’s Young Entrepreneur Award for 2020 for her fashion and fitness empire.
