Dancing With the Stars fans might only know Sharna Burgess as a fiery redhead, but the former pro has completely flipped the script when it comes to her look. Burgess revealed she had ditched the red hair for a rose gold look last month and hasn't stopped showing off the stunning new 'do on social media ever since.
On July 18, she shared the first look at her lightened locks, which fade into pink at the ends, captioning the photo, "New hair who dis...." Fans have had a strong reaction to the change, with some praising her new aesthetic and others noting how different she looks with another hair color.

Sharing photos on social media of the process, Burgess wrote on a July 22 photo, "WHO IS THAT PERSON!?" Explaining that her "incredibly talented sister" was the one who helped her change things up, the dancer said she hadn't been that blonde since she was 14. "We loved it so much we almost didn’t add the pink!" she admitted.
Being able to go from bright red to blonde so seamlessly was "a miracle," Burgess added. "I wasn’t expecting to get my dream hair in that session... but she made it happen," she wrote. "Giving some love and praise to my girl... you magical creature you. First you create the Sharna Red that gave me so much... and now you’ve given me something I love even more."prevnext

Since going rose gold, Burgess has been sharing plenty of selfies on Instagram, but the DWTS alum isn't apologizing for it. "I absolutely need to take more photos... feels weird posting anything with my red hair now that I’m blonde and feel like it’s SO UNBELIEVABLY DIFFERENT," she captioned a photo on Aug. 5. "So.. until I do that... it’s gonna be shameless selfies as content."prevnext

We'll miss the charming redhead.— Ben Davenport (@bgdaven3) August 8, 2020
Plenty of others were more concerned about whether Burgess would ever return to Dancing With the Stars after not being asked back for Season 28 last year following her win alongside Bobby Bones in Season 27.
You’re a beautiful woman. Still hoping that you’ll return to DWTS.— Halfhitch (@Halfhitch2000) August 7, 2020

Future on 'DWTS'
Burgess told Us Weekly earlier this month that she would be more than happy to return to DWTS if asked. "If they ask me, I will jump up and down — [I] might do the ugly cry," the Aussie dancer said Friday. "I'm not sure. You know, I missed my family. I miss dancing. I miss creating. I miss teaching." Burgess added she had not heard anything from Dancing With the Stars producers still, but she said she "certainly wasn't ready" to leave the show behind last year. "I've still got more in me," Burgess said.prev
