Earlier this year, when Married At First Sight‘s Jo Mcpharlin, aka Foxy Jojo, arrived on our screens in a horse-drawn cart, we fell head over heels for this gorgeous breath of fresh air.

With her no-filtered approach to finding true love, the single mum-of-two quickly became our favourite MAFS bride.

Unfortunately for Jojo (and for us!) the bubbly mum didn’t find love with her betrothed bar manager hubby Sean, and departed the show early than we’d all hoped.

But we never forgot this larger-than-life character, who since appearing on the reality show has undergone an stunning makeover with the help of Kaz Hair Brighton. And just in time for the 2018 Logie awards, too!

While Jo was willing to give their union a try, Sean bowed out of their TV marriage.

Foxy Jojo = our Queen.

Wanting to debut a glamorous look for Australian television’s night-of-nights, the single mum called on the professionals at Kaz Hair to take her look to the next level ahead of the Logies.

The makeover process focused mainly on Jo’s hair, which after years of dying had become dry and limp.

“We wanted to help Jo create a sleeker and more sophisticated look so she can feel fabulous on the red carpet,” said salon owner, Angela Zacharia.

And that they did!

“They have made me go from bogan to beautiful! I love the results!” said Jo.

In a transformation that have Queer Eye’s Fab Five squealing “YAAAAS QUEEN!”, the salon refined the vibrant blonde’s look, while maintaining her personal style.

It took 6-weeks to get Jo’s unruly hair back into good condition.

The team added highlights to the lovable Adelaide mum’s hair, taking her yellow-blonde to a chic platinum hue. Hair extensions were also added to give length and thickness to Jo’s new blunt bob.

“They have made me go from bogan to beautiful!”

We adore Jo’s new look and we just can’t wait to see her bringing the glam to the glitzy Gold Coast shores on Sunday night!

As for Jo’s love-life, and a potentially dating show return, she previously said, “I would do it all again in the blink of an eye.”

But something tells us, Jo won’t be needing the help of the match-making experts anytime soon.
