'The Dark Side': Rhian Sugden, 30, has given herself an image overhaul and ditched her usual blonde tresses for a sleek and much darker shade after becoming a brunette
Scantily-clad Rhian looked sensational in her mirror selfie, as she struck a sultry pose while sporting a plain black bra that drew attention to her plentiful cleavage, along with a skimpy pair of matching pants.
But all eyes were on the starlet's tresses, as the glamour model looked almost unrecognisable after switching up the colour of her bonce.
She teased her newly dyed brunette lengths into a tousled ponytail that sat high up on her head and addressing her hair change in the caption alongside her selfie, Rhian penned: 'Just trying out my new hair.'
She added the hashtag: '#TheDarkSide.'

They penned: 'See now that somehow doesn't look quite 'you' somehow. Still awesome but different.
'I always prefer you blonde darling, but you do look good as a brunette as well.

She had been joined by her fiancé Oliver Mellor for the vacation and took a break from posting her sizzling bikini snaps to share a hilarious photo with her beau.
The duo were seen posing in belly-dancing outfits in front of an idyllic sea view.
Oliver, 35, had jokingly fashioned a sarong into a bandeau top around his chest, copying Rhian's look, and the pair smiled as they held their arms aloft. Rhian has been engaged to the hunk since 2014.
Former Coronation Street star Oliver had proposed to Rhian with the help of a flash mob while his girlfriend had been watching him perform in a production of Agatha Christie's Black Coffee at the Opera House Manchester.

Her break away came as Rhian - who soared to fame as a Page 3 girl - revealed her plans to quit glamour modelling this week.
Explaining her decision in an interview with The Sun, she admitted: 'I've had an amazing ten years, but I think it's time to call it a day.'
'I’ll still be modelling,' she insisted. 'But I just won’t be taking my bra off anymore... I want to quit while I’m ahead.'
The blonde beauty first found fame as a model, but achieved new heights of fame after she was caught in two sexting scandals with married DJ, Vernon Kay.

Vernon was famously forced to make a public apology to his wife Tess Daly on Radio 1 back in 2010 after a set of saucy messages to Rhian emerged.
The father-of-two went on to promise live on air that he would no longer contact Rhian or the four other women he had been caught messaging at the time.
However, Rhian then revealed the pair had got back in touch in December last year - with Vernon sending hundreds of texts asking to 'reconnect' with the model.
After a break of six years, the busty blonde admitted after her confession that Vernon reaching out to her had felt like an 'old friendship coming back'.
Vernon, meanwhile, claimed at the time of the allegations that his WhatsApp messages asking her to meet had been taken out of context, that he had done 'nothing wrong' and that his wife was completely aware of all contact.
