Melissa Reeves is heading back to Salem after a nearly two-year absence. In her time away from Hollywood, the Tennessee native let her blonde hair go grey. Will she go back to blonde for her Days of Our Lives return? Or could Melissa Reeves embrace her silver vixen look?
Celebs Embrace ‘Pandemic Hair’
Sometimes, celebrities really ARE just like us! Hair salons were among the outlets shuttered during the pandemic shutdown in the spring and summer of 2020. Without access to their hairstylists, many actresses went grey at the roots. Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria was so, well, desperate, to keep her brown locks that she used drugstore root spray to hide her grey.
Soap vet and talk show host Kelly Ripa also showed off her grey roots on Instagram, frequently updating fans on “root watch.” However, she went back to her TV-friendly blonde hair after Live With Kelly and Ryan resumed.
Maurice Benard, Christian LeBlanc Break Internet With Silver Fox Looks
Female stars weren’t the only ones setting aside the hair dye. The Young and the Restless star Christian LeBlanc wowed fans at the height of the pandemic with his silver locks. He wasn’t the only one breaking the internet, though.
General Hospital’s Maurice Benard also debuted a silver fox look. However, now the soap is filming again, he is back to his familiar black hair.
Will Melissa Reeves Embrace Her Silver Vixen Status?
Melissa Reeves’ hair transition likely has less to do with the pandemic and more to do with her lifestyle change. She lives the down-home farm life in Tennessee. In fact, that’s the reason Cady McClain temporarily took over the role of Jennifer Horton. Melissa Reeves didn’t want to travel back-and-forth from her home to California during the pandemic.
Days of Our Lives fans clamoring for her return as Jennifer are getting their wish! Huge Jack and Jennifer fan Kelli Gustafson recently met Melissa Reeves during an appearance in Tennessee. Kelli shared on her Twitter that Melissa spilled the beans about her upcoming return.
Melissa Reeves – and Jennifer Horton – will return to Salem just in time for the Horton family Christmas tradition, per Soap Opera Digest.
Additionally, the soap alum revealed that she is considering opening up a Cameo account. Cameo connects celebrities and their fans in a short paid-for video shoutout.
Missy’s talking about getting a Cameo too and wants me to help promote it if so. I know a ton of people who would a love Cameo’s from our queen. #Days— 𝐾𝑒𝑙𝑙𝑖 𝐺𝑢𝑠𝑡𝑎𝑓𝑠𝑜𝑛 | Cᴏɴᴛʀᴀ ᴍᴜɴᴅᴜᴍ (@SuperKelli24) August 9, 2021
