TV personality Liezel van der Westhuizen welcomed the new year with a bold new look - and we're in love with the colourful hairdo. 

Who says short hair has to be boring? Liezel, who is known for experimenting with different hairstyles, showed off a new pink and purple ombre hair colour on Instagram.

"My Little Pony ain't got nothing on my new 'do," she captioned a series of cheeky photos. 

Speaking to Channel24, Liezel says that although it's a playful hairstyle the decision to dye her hair was a "personal moment".

"I first shaved the two lines at the back of my hair for my two friends who are currently fighting cancer. I then decided to add the pink and purple colour to support everyone battling their own fights, whether it be cancer, Covid-19 or any personal battle," she says.  

Let's keep an eye on Instagram, to see if blondes truly have more fun!
