The LA-based hairdresser, who's responsible for the hair transformations of Sharon Osbourne and Jane Fonda, posts before and after transformation photos on his Instagram account to encourage women to ditch the dye.

And Martin told Insider that the coronavirus lockdown has "absolutely" led to even more women around the world deciding to go gray naturally.

"Now, many women have about four to five inches of a new regrowth so they've started to see how beautiful their gray is naturally," he said.

"Being quarantined at home for three to four months, seeing how much gray hair they have and how beautiful their gray hair is, many women have changed their minds and decided that they want to go this way."
