Good Morning Britain presenter Susanna Reid revealed this morning that she made the most of hair salons opening up this weekend.

And it looks as if, just like the rest of us, Good Morning Britain host Susanna Reid was desperate to get a fresh post lockdown trim after letting her locks grow out for nearly four months over the coronavirus lockdown.

So with salons opening up on the weekend, as part of what came to be known as Super Saturday with bars and restaurants opening alongside the salons, Susanna headed down to her stylist for a gorgeous post-lockdown hair transformation.

Sharing the exciting trip with her over 500,000 followers, the TV star posted a side-by-side transformation photo on her Instagram page this morning, after presenting her three-hour Good Morning Britain segment with co-host Piers Morgan.

Assuring fans that she had been properly wearing a mask when she got her hair cut, the ITV star tagged hairdresser Richard Ward in her snap, the same stylist who takes care of Duchess Catherine’s gorgeous locks.

Hair? Cut,’ she wrote alongside her Instagram post, which raked up thousands of likes in just a couple of hours.

During this morning’s show, Susanna’s Good Morning Britain co-presenter Piers Morgan revealed to viewers that he had also got his hair cut over the weekend.

The controversial presenter complimented his longtime co-host, who he is known to sweetly refer to as his work wife, before opening up on his experience at the salon.

Speaking to Susanna and ITV’s resident medical expert Dr Hilary Jones, Piers revealed that he was quite alarmed at being presented with a thermometer when he first arrived at the barbershop.

"The first sight was [a thermometer] and that was a bit dramatic,” he told the ITV pair.

“All of it is an interesting experience, they all had visors on and gloves,” he continued. “I was encouraged to wear a mask and gloves inside”.

Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.

Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
