Cheryl has named dying her hair bright blonde as a teenager as her biggest beauty mistake.

The British singer has experimented with her tresses numerous times over the years, rocking everything from sleek, long strands to mid-length waves. However, Cheryl has never really tried out blonde hair, and in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, she explained that she has avoided the colour after a bad experience when she was around the age of 15.

“I was very young and a bit naive, so I didn’t realise what bleach could do to your hair, especially for someone as dark as me,” she told the publication. “It meant my hair was in terrible condition and I thought I could solve it with a home kit, but of course that didn’t work.”

In addition, Cheryl shared that she wishes she never cut her hair into a bob when she was 19 because she instantly “hated” the look on her. The disastrous haircut meant she started using hair extensions though, and she has never looked back, having recently teamed with brand Easilocks.

“With what I do, there’s a lot of heat from styling and the lights on set, so the damage can be almost constant. It’s nice to have something to buff the damage, so I like to wear extensions for red carpets and when I’m performing,” the 35-year-old noted.

Elsewhere in the chat, Cheryl shared that she gets her hair trimmed every six to eight weeks and takes supplements from Lumity too, as the brand was recommended to her by a pal when some of her hair fell out after she gave birth to son Bear in March 2017.

“My friend recommended these supplements to me and I’ve never looked back because they contain everything you need for good hair, skin and nails. My hair has never been so healthy,” she smiled.

Cheryl takes better care of her skin now that she’s a mother.

The British singer and boyfriend Liam Payne, 24, became parents for this first time last year (17) to son Bear, and Cheryl quickly learned she’d need to adapt her beauty regime as she embraced motherhood. Her skincare routine was given the biggest overhaul once she realised she needed to “up her game” and really focus on hydration.

“I’ve got a couple of luxury serums from SkinCeuticals,” the 34-year-old explained in an interview with Britain’s Glamour magazine during the Cannes Film Festival. “I use the £85 ($115) Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier serum, which is really great.”

Though the Call My Name hitmaker admits the product is “luxury and it’s a bit more of an expense” she’s adamant it’s worth splashing out on skincare in the long run.

“If you take care of your skin, your make-up looks fresher,” she considered. “Having a good base makes it far easier than trying to cover skin ailments with make-up as you’re not really addressing the problem.”

Former Girls Aloud singer Cheryl also shared that she takes a two-step supplement by Lumity both morning and night, and added that she received her best beauty tips from Spice Girls’ Geri Horner during their girl band days.

And as a busy mum, it’s no surprise that the pop star prefers a more relaxed approach when it comes to exercise.

“I do love yoga,” she smiled. “I like it for calming your state of mind so instead of doing mad cardio where it intensifies it, it calms you down.”
