Strictly Come Dancing star debuts drastic transformation

Strictly Come Dancing star Karen Hauer debuted her brand-new curly hairstyle on Monday as she stepped out of rehearsals in a tiny crop top.

The 39-year-old ditched her trademark dark pixie cut for a blonder look with gorgeous spiral curls as she showed off her rock-hard abs in workout gear.

The Venezuelan-American pro dancer enjoyed the sunny weather outside of the studio accessorizing with a long silver pendant necklace and opted for a large pair of sunglasses while sporting just one black leg warmer with white trainers.

Karen was practising her moves ahead of her appearance on the Strictly Come Dancing – The Professionals tour this April, after the show was postponed due to Covid-19.

The much-anticipated show will kick off on Thursday 28th April in Manchester, before making its way around England.

The dancing pro, who is the longest-serving female professional on the BBC show having joined the series in 2012, was pictured alongside Strictly champions such as Dianne Buswell, Katya Jones and Gorka Marquez.

Fellow dancer Katya showed off her toned legs in a black mini-skirt and towering wedged Adidas lace-up heels as she exited the studio.

The 32-year-old Russian dancer opted for a white shirt with black trim which she tucked half into the petite skirt before adding an oversized black denim jacket.

She swept her dark locks up into a ponytail leaving strands out at the front to shape her face while sporting a large, mirrored pair of sunglasses.

Dianne also seemed in high spirits as she rocked a colourful Nike T-shirt over a pair of fishnet tights.
