We love a major beauty transformation almost as much as we love binge-watching new episodes of The Bachelor Australia staring Matt Agnew. Which is why when we noticed one of the reality series' early favourites to win Abbie Chatfield, has had a dramatic hair change of her own - we decided to do a deep dive into her best looks throughout recent years.

Right from the start, Abbie made an impression on 31-year-old Matt when she hilariously replied to his assertion of "I'm an astrophysicist" by retorting "I'm a Gemini." While the clip went viral, it turns out Abbie was actually in on the joke.

"She’s very, very, clever, very witty, and loved to wind me up,” Matt revealed to KIIS FM.

The 23-year-old property analyst from Queensland might have burst through the Bachie mansion doors with curly blonde tresses but a light scroll through her Instagram feed reveals that she used to have a sleek, glossy, dark brown mane.


Undoubtedly, Abbie looks gorgeous with both hair hairs but, we must say, this chestnut brown is quite a departure. What's more? Chestnut brown is officially the most popular colour among Australian women with a 206% increase in saves since last year. This is a rich medium brown shade with warm golden reflections. This versatile shade suits all skin tones, adding a healthy glow to warmer complexions.

Abbie's not the only Bachelor contestant to undergo a massive hair transformation. Alex Nation unveiled fiery copper hair earlier this year.

What do you think of Abbie's massive transformation? Let us know in the comments below.
