'X Factor' Makeovers See Final 12 Transformed Ahead Of Live Shows (PICTURES)

The makeovers are without doubt our favourite part of 'The X Factor', and this year's bunch have been given plenty of spit and polish (well, hopefully more polish than spit) ahead of the first live show, as these pictures reveal.

After taking part in the exclusive shoot, some of the final 12 look completely unrecognisable.

Check out the pics in our gallery below...

Prison officer Sam Bailey leads the pack with a glamorous new look, while Hannah Barrett has ditched the braids for a flowing new weave.

However, those hoping that Luke Friend would have been forced to wash his hair, are set to be disappointed, as those dreadlocks still remain.

The final 12 are set to perform live for the first time on Saturday at 8pm on ITV.
