Cheryl Fernandez-Versini Instagrams New Short Hair

It's official: Cheryl Fernandez-Versini looks amazing with any hairstyle. The X Factor judge debuted a new short 'do on Instagram on Monday, telling fans she took inspiration from the 70s.


And not only has she ditched the long locks, she's also switched from blonde to red.

She wrote, "I ❤️ the 70's #newdo colour is @lorealparisuk Casting Creme Gloss Berry Red 565. @percyhair thanks for the chop 💇

Long over due.. 😉💇👋

Cheryl has been keeping things on the downlow since the last series of X Factor wrapped, but she's set to release her next single, 'Only Human' - the third from her album of the same name - on 22 March.

She's sure to be doing a host of promotional appearances, so perhaps the new 'do is a timely single-release freshen up.

Chezza must be hoping the single goes straight to the top of the charts after her last five tracks did just that, making her the first British female solo artist to claim five number one singles.

But back to the hair: What do you think? We like.
