Cole vows never to get hair cut

Cheryl Cole’s long dark hair is her “safety blanket”.

The Girls Aloud beauty says she will never feel confident enough to have her brunette locks chopped short because a botched teenage hairstyle left her with a “moon head”.

She explained to Britain’s More magazine: “This is my safety blanket – it makes me feel secure. You feel glamorous when it’s long and the bigger the better for me, I’m quite obsessed with that! I had it short when Girls Aloud first started and at the time I was almost two stone overweight. I cut my hair short – bad move. Now the image I have in my mind is of a moon head with short hair, so I kind of don’t dare.

“I genuinely feel like my hair is the most important thing. If you’re having a bad face day or a bad make-up day, as long as your hair feels fab then you feel alright. But if you’re having a bad hair day, then you feel aware of it – if it’s kinky, or if it’s dry.”

The 26-year-old beauty was recently signed up as the face of the new L’Oreal Elvive haircare range.

Despite loving her glamorous locks and enjoying the filming the range’s advert, Cheryl says she can’t bring herself to watch it on TV.

She explained: “I’ve had a private screening. There was a round of applause when I said, ‘Because you’re worth it.’ It was really exciting, but I couldn’t watch it back. I can’t watch myself.”
