EastEnders star Jessie Wallace shares hair transformation in new post

EastEnders actress Jessie Wallace has unveiled a new hair do to fans.

Wallace, who plays Kat Slater on the BBC One soap, shared a photo of the hair transformation on Instagram, crediting her long-time hairdresser and friend behind the new style.

"Thank you @linocarbosiero for my rock chick cut! Love you," read the caption. The soap star usually has her hair parted to the sides to show off her full face, but the new photo unveils a more top-heavy look with some wispy bangs coming down to her eyes. Her eyebrows have also been done up to look sharper.

Friends and colleagues were quick to share their reaction to the edgier hairstyle in the comments section of the post, with some fans comparing her new look to the likes of Joan Jett and Chrissie Hynde.

"Do you ever stop getting more stunning??!!!" wrote co-star Shona McGarty, while Natalie Cassidy also stated that she loved the new 'do.

Wallace's character Kat has been part of some big storylines recently, with the animal-print loving Slater recently enjoying a turbulent fling with the Square's local villain Nish Panesar following her split from husband Phil, although she's not aware that Nish has some secret plans for her.
