“Brunettes (don’t) count for plums”, sang Lio in 1986. One of the hits that made the singer popular with the public. From her beginnings in the 80s to today, she has distinguished herself in particular by her sense of style, her extravagant outfits and her metamorphosis.

However, the Belgian and Portuguese singer (real name Vanda Maria Ribeiro Furtado Tavares de Vasconcelos) has never been afraid to take responsibility for her hair changes. Of a sublime brown color, Lio displays without complex today his white hair. The first of which appeared at the age of 27, as she explained to Nouvel Obs in 2017.

“At that age, we do lots of colors, we try things, we have fun. And I loved it. I remember this because I was a fan of Christian Lacroix’s first model at the time, Marie Seznec, who was 24 and had gray hair. I found it very beautiful, ”she assured our colleagues, adding. “A few years ago I started to have really a lot of gray hair. So I let it go quietly, without asking myself too many questions about people’s eyes or about possible reprobations “.

Regardless of the opinions and criticisms of her detractors, the actress and ex-candidate of Dancing with the stars assumes her graying hair, as a symbol of the passage of time. “I’m getting old, and I say that’s how it is. It is a way of life that I accept. But the euphemism on this path of life bothers me and does not help me. It puts me in a cantilever, “admits Héléna Noguerra’s sister, revealing to the magazine that she has used tricks to hide her locks in the past.

Popular on social networks, Lio can count on the support of fans who cover her with messages on Instagram. Between her many career memories, the sexagenarian likes to share her hair transformations, like a recent photo posted on March 29 where she reveals a brown and blonde two-tone haircut! “Top cut the color”, enthuses the former juror of New Star Marianne James, while the singer Jennifer Ayache shows her admiration with an emoji with eyes in heart.
