There are two rules for anyone dealing with a traumatic break-up: 1) don't bombard your ex with phone calls and texts you may regret later and 2) don't make any drastic physical changes.
While many women head to the salon to cut - rather than just wash - that man right out of their hair, Rita Ora has gone one step further following her split with Calvin Harris.

Rather than just getting an updated barnet, the star got together with a tattoo artist friend and got a new inking - this time of a ballerina.
Ora, 23, revealed on Instagram the sweet image had been free-drawn onto her arm before being made permanent and looked pretty pleased with the end result.
The singer's ex-boyfriend announced he was no longer dating her on Twitter at the weekend and according to rumours, this is how she discovered their relationship was over.
However, the split may come as no surprise to fans of Harris given he has been spotted in LA with various women over the past few weeks.
The couple dated for a year and Ora recently said in an interview with Elle magazine the chart-topping DJ had "got something out of me that I never that I had. Yes, like falling in love. I just didn't think I had it".
