Cole: 'The higher the hair, the closer to heaven'

Cheryl Cole feels "close to heaven" when she has big hair.

The ousted US ‘X Factor' judge – who has been sensationally dropped from the pop star search show - caused a stir with her bouffant locks at the first auditions earlier this month but despite criticism for her look, the British beauty insists she was pleased with her appearance on the day.

She said: "I love that style. I felt really glamorous with it.

"The bigger the better I always say – the higher the hair, the closer to heaven. I can do it myself after all these years of practice."

As well as doing her own hair, Cheryl also grooms her eyebrows herself, admitting she has to do so often because she is naturally dark-haired.

She added to LOOK magazine: "I always do my eyebrows myself, plucking and shaping them. I have to keep on top of them – I can't really grow them out so that I can get them done professionally because I'm on TV. I'm dark and the hairs really show."
