‘Incredibly vain’ Sonia Kruger, 57, says she’d ‘rather get a molar extraction’ than let her hair grow grey… as she praises ‘brave women’ who embrace ageing naturally
Don’t expect to see Sonia Kruger with grey hair.
In a column for the Herald Sun, the television presenter, 57, said she’s committed to keeping her trademark blonde locks.
The Voice Australia star praised other woman who embraced their natural colour but said it’s not something she’s open to.
Sonia said: ‘Massive respect to all the ladies out there who rock the grey. Liz Ellis, Andie MacDowell and Jamie Lee Curtis are beautiful, sexy and intelligent women. They’re also far braver than me.’
‘I would rather have a molar extraction than see my natural hair colour. That might sound extreme but I’m incredibly vain and also in denial about a lot of things.’

She went on to say her sister Deb, a hairdresser, has helped her ‘create the perfect beachy, biscuit blonde’ to disguise her greys.
‘It’s a lot of maintenance, though, and if you’re not related to a professional, all that salon time can be crushingly expensive, so I completely understand why a lot of women step away from the peroxide at some point in their lives,’ she said.
It comes after Sonia recently enjoyed the school Easter school holidays in Bali with her eight-year-old daughter Maggie.

The TV presenter was spotted arriving at Denpasar airport last month holding hands with her adorable youngster as they prepared for a beachside getaway.
The Big Brother host shares Maggie, who was born in 2015, with TV executive Craig McPherson.
She conceived via IVF treatment and a donor egg at the age of 49, after several natural pregnancies had ended in miscarriage.
The TV host has been very open about her journey to parenthood, and told Stellar magazine two years ago that she worried if bonding with a child that wasn’t biologically hers would be difficult.
‘That’s the beautiful thing about having a child in your life whether you’ve adopted them or had them by surrogate, or it’s a foster child,’ she said.
‘You grow to love them and, in my case, it was pretty instantaneous. She grew in my tummy so she’s a part of me and I look at her and can’t imagine loving her any more than I do.’
